You want to know how awesome this wedding was...We started the wedding with a Pensacola Bay Cruise with Amber and Zack's closest friends and family. With the waves crashing and the sun setting, they said their vows to each other and exchanged rings.
Number One Tip for Future Phocus Couples to Consider About The Wedding Day: Maybe just to make sure to stop and enjoy the little moments when you can because it goes by so quick.
The wedding day goes by fast than you think. Once that day is over, it's gone. Zack and Amber 100% took in each moment together. Throughout their couple photos, they
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? (bride's response) Probably the first look, the ceremony, and beach photos. So all of it I guess lol
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? (groom's response) First look
How did you two meet? (Tell us all those little details!) We met online! I’m from Arizona and he’s from Alabama! We first met in Nashville and got to spend a week together. We’ve been best friends ever since our first phone call.
Tell us about THE dress! What made you fall in love? I knew I wanted an off-the-shoulders dress. Kinda cliché but Belle was one of my favorite Disney princesses and I fell in love with her dress since the very first time I saw it. I loved the flower lace too and I love gardening and flowers and our daughter’s name is Lily - it was just perfect.
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it? Peaches and Cream by the John Butler Trio. 🍑 It’s Zack’s favorite and John wrote the song for his wife and daughter.
(For the Groom) Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day: Attraction and happiness
(For the Bride) Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day: I’m glad we did the first look before the ceremony, that’s the moment I felt the most teary seeing Zack. It was just a really good moment, he looked really handsome and I was so excited to see him.
What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (bride's response) Seeing Beth and David again after 10 years. And hearing everyone’s toasts was a tear jerker too.
What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (groom's response) My pa not being there to see me get married
What is ONE moment of your day that you will always remember? How sore my arm was from holding lily during the ceremony. -Groom Trying not to trip in the dress! And how I felt wearing it.
Lily stuck on there like a trooper. Not sure if she's a mama's girl or a daddy's girl, but she definitely loves them so much. We loved that she got the chance to be right in those special moments right with her mom and dad.
One of our favorite parts of the ceremony was right after they said "I Do". They opened up the floor for friends and family to come give words of advice, or even stories about the couple. Needless to say, it got very emotional.
Favorite part of the Phocus Experience? How friendly you guys all were. Thanks for rolling with us through all the craziness.
Amber and Zack were two of the sweetest people to capture. Their sweet daughter lily was definitely the life of the party. She stuck by mom and dad most of the day and was the sweetest thing!
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Allen!
