If we had to describe the Dobry's wedding day it was honestly a fairytale wedding. The flow of the day was very relaxed, and you could just feel the love that was blowing through the trees at Sowell Farms! To say Alyssa and Ben's wedding day was a VERY long time coming! Now before you start shaking your head at Ben, like I did ;), they both came to an agreement to wait till they both graduate and started their adult lives together to make that move! Alyssa was VERY excited to have that ring bling on her finger!
Number One Tip for Future Phocus Couples to Consider: My number one tip for Phocus couples is to know what is important to make time for during your wedding day. Your day goes by so fast you have to make time for those special moments.-Alyssa
We seriously could NOT agree more with Alyssa! Your day will fly by faster than you can blink, but we try our best to make sure we have you both step away from all the CRAZY of the day! Just breathe, and soak in every moment you can!
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? Ben had a point in the ceremony where he prayed over me and our future marriage. It was such an emotional and perfect time of connection so I cannot wait to see how those pictures turn out.- Alyssa
There is no denying the love that is shared between Alyssa and Ben. In this particular moment, there was not a peep from anyone around, but we knew just how special this moment was for them both. Definitely one we will never forget.
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? All of the bridal party and family pictures. The moment I am looking forward to is the pictures of her walking down the aisle.- Ben
As Alyssa stepped out of that carriage, a cold gust of wind blew through the entire crowd, and it felt like everything was frozen in time. There was not a soul around besides Alyssa and Ben in this moment of time.
How did you two meet? We were in the same youth group in high school and started dating shortly after. We did long distance through our college years and have been looking forward to this day ever since our high school days!
Tell us about THE dress! I had been to SOOO many different dress boutiques in the area and I was losing hope of finding THE dress. Once I put this dress on I couldn't stop smiling. I tried some other ones on after just to make sure, but all I was thinking about when I had them on was MY dress!
I don't think our words could simply do enough justice on how gorgeous Alyssa's dress was! It was crafted just for her, and we couldn't have pictured Alyssa in any other dress on her special day! Bridal Suite really went above and beyond to make sure Alyssa looked like a true Queen on her wedding day!
Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day: I was so excited and relieved to finally see her & I thought "She is going to be mine forever. I am the luckiest guy in the world."- Ben
Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day: So many nerves!!!! I was so anxious for the ceremony and being in front of everyone. - Alyssa
There is no denying how nerve wracking this moment could be, especially if you spend most of the hiding from one another! 9 out of 10 times, as soon as you lay eyes on your soon-to-be spouse, those nerves will turn into excitement, and we always here that your whole future flashes before your eyes. Take in every second on this. You'll remember it forever.
What was the most emotional part of the day? Getting to see him at the end of the aisle. The day we had been waiting for was finally here! -Alyssa
What was the most emotional part of the day? Receiving my bride after her father handed her off to me. It was so symbolic, I was so emotional.- Ben
Dad's giving their babygirl away is something that will never NOT be an emotional and powerful moment. Dad's spend their whole lives protecting and caring for their daughters, and this moment you are passing that responsibility off to someone you are trusting your whole world with. It hits us right in our hearts every time.
What is ONE moment of your day that you will always remember? I will always remember our sweet carriage ride (with just the two of us) right after the ceremony!-Alyssa
Favorite part of the Phocus Experience? Having them hype me and Ben up all day at the wedding!-Alyssa
If there is one thing the Phocus team is NOT short of is that energy of the continually hype from the moment we arrive, till we leave! We are here for you!!
