Cameron Cavanaugh Yancey and Mark Philip Pierce Adams met at a mutual friend’s party while the two were in high school at Isidore Newman; it was the beginning of Cameron’s sophomore year, and Pierce was a senior. The following fall, Pierce left for Washington and Lee University in Virginia, and Cameron started her junior year at Newman. The two kept in touch and began seeing more of each other in 2005 when Cameron started college at The University of Georgia.

Ever since high school, Cameron and Pierce have made a “date” of “Celebration in the Oaks” followed by Ralph’s on the Park for dinner. On December 22, 2011, the couple went to continue the tradition. Though it appeared more crowded than usual, Pierce popped the question at the event anyway. Cameron excitedly said yes, and the two went straight to Ralph’s on the Park where the families were waiting to celebrate with the newly engaged couple.

After the wedding, Cameron and Pierce left for a romantic 10-day honeymoon to the South of France. They made three stops: Les Baux de Provence, Vence and Eze, touring the surrounding countryside along the way. The two currently reside in Uptown, near the Audubon Park area. Cameron is the Director of Communications for The Idea Village, and Pierce is a financial consultant with Capital One and is a member of the LA State Bar.
