Camille and Michael: Film and Sage at the Westin Poinsett

Congratulations Camille and Mike!
Camille and Mike were a very special bride and groom for B&R. I have known them since way back when at the University of South Carolina Upstate. So, when Camille posted her engagement on Myspace, I sent her a shout out letting her know about B&R Events. They ended up signing on for the Grace package (full coordination).
Camille and Mike had their ceremony AND reception in the Gold Ballroom at the Westin Poinsett, with the cocktail hour in the Spoonbread restaurant. Their guests were welcomed by a photo guestbook with their engagement photos taken at the American Theatre by Amy Wood. They walked into the ballroom to a custom aisle runner with the couple's monogram, columns topped with floral arrangements of roses and orchids, and copper candleabras. The ceremony was officiated by Mike's dad, Tim (who only choked up at the end), and included Filipino traditions or the veil, cord, and coins. In Pro Video caught every minute of it.
After an hour and fifteen minute room flip, Camille and Mike entered the reception and went straight into their first dance to "Something" by the Beatles. After, they enjoyed a four course dinner, which included wedding cake and (red velvet) grooms cake from Couture Cakes. Though Camille chose to go with a pallette of sage, antique gold, and pale peach, their wedding had an underlying theme of their love for movies! Their seating chart was printed on plexiglass for a 3D effect with a film reel background, the grooms cake was a film reel, and all the tables were named after their favorite movies. Sam Brooks with Life of the Party serenaded the wedding guests during dinner.
At the end of the evening, Camille and Mike were "sent off" in a horse and carriage from our friends at Whispering Winds Carriage Company.
