It was a busy year for the Small family. Both Cami and her older sister Star married 2 months apart.
As you can imagine, planning one wedding for a family can be overwhelming enough but having two within 2 months could be a bit challenging but everything came together with the help of family and friends. The sisters are 18 months apart and have always shared experiences so this was the perfect opportunity to bounce ideas back and forth and give support to one another.
Cami is a Pediatric Intensive Care nurse at Duke Hospital and Stephen is a graduate student in physics at UNC-Chapel Hill. Looking back they both credit the success of their wedding to the combined effort of so many different people that made their day come together. Each have large families and the combined love and support they received made a huge impact. Cami’s cousin, a bridesmaid, did her hair, Her neighbor and childhood friend was their coordinator, and she wore the same veil her sister had worn earlier that year. Her sisters were maid and matron of honor, her brothers were both ushers, and one of them even drove the getaway car. Stephen’s brothers were all groomsmen, and Cami said she couldn’t imagine marrying into a more welcoming family. One of Stephen’s groomsmen’s girlfriends is a pastry chef, and made them a beautiful four-tiered wedding cake. Stephen and Cami worked very hard to save money and plan their wedding, and said they couldn’t have imagined a better result!
