Cameron Elizabeth Slenski & Ryan Patrick Stewart

October 20, 2018

Cameron Slenksi met Ryan Stewart at a sorority function during her freshman year at the University of South Carolina, but it took a few years, and a reconnection through social media, for a relationship to take root. Their long-distance romance made hearts grow fonder, and Ryan planned a surprise engagement in downtown Greenville on the steps by the Reedy River, with the Wyche Pavilion in view. Their parents and friends hid by the bridge, anxiously awaiting the proposal. After Cameron’s “yes!” the entire crew gathered for a celebratory drink at Halls Chophouse. The couple immediately knew the Wyche Pavilion would be the site of their reception, a reminiscent gem from their engagement night. For the big day, the bride wore her mother’s wedding veil, her grandmother’s diamond cross necklace, and a hair comb and earrings from her godmother. At the end of the night, the couple drove away in a 1935 Rolls-Royce. Cameron works as a nurse, while Ryan is a claims adjuster. The two now reside in Cameron’s hometown of Mauldin.
