Cameron Jones and William Bolton Jr. | October 1, 2016
Both Monticello High School grads, Cameron and Will have known each other since they were teenagers. “In our junior year and senior years we shared a lot of classes together—including the opportunity to take a class at UVA our senior years,” Cameron says. It was during that class they became close friends, until Cameron went to William & Mary for college and Will stayed behind at UVA. “We agreed that if we weren’t married by the time we were 40, we’d marry each other.” They didn’t have to wait that long: After staying good friends through college and beyond, meeting a few times a year and over the holidays, they went on a date in spring 2014. They were engaged just a year later.
Given their Charlottesville history, it’s no surprise the couple chose to include a lot of local vendors in their big day—favors, wedding dress, wedding bands and reception food included. “Even our day-of coordinator and hair and makeup artist were Charlottesville natives,” Cameron says. Oh, and don’t forget the music. Cameron and Will had “Crash Into Me” by Dave Matthews Band played on acoustic guitar for the bridesmaids’ walk. Says the bride: “Quintessential Charlottesville.”
