Jami & Conner

When we met Jami and Conner for the first time, it was back in 2019, they are one of our longest booked weddings with us!! We sat down with them both, and they told us they were having a "James Bond" themed wedding! We couldn't see it fitting anyone else other than Jami and Conner Bond! They had a special edition "James Bond" whiskey that they shared a shot with their family and friends! To top it off, they walked down the aisle to the "James Bond" theme song played by a string quartet! I meannnnn who else can say they did that?!?

Number One Tip for Future Phocus Brides to Consider:

"Focus on what is most important to you. Remember this day is about you and your significant other. Don’t let all the small things bother you. Enjoy the day, it goes by fast!"-Jami

We couldn't agree more! Things will pop up in a blink of an eye that might just be the thing to send you off the cliff, but try to remember WHY you are doing this! Twenty years from now you won't remember those small things that seemed to shatter your world!


What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos?

"Seeing our excitement in all of the photos especially our smiles and multiple kisses!"-Conner

We LIVE for those moments that you can't prepare for, because those show the real emotion behind your smiles! You can stand there and look pretty all day, but we want to see those belly laughs that bring tears to your eyes!


What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos?

"The champagne shot! It captured the fun from the night with our bridal party. Also all of the detail photos!"-Jami

What better way to celebrate your night going out in a bang than popping some bottles of champagne with your best friends?!


How did you two meet?

"Thanks to a bee & shitty meatballs!"-Jami

Who knew little frozen meatballs, and a game of "never have I ever" around a fireplace would lead to finding the love your life?! Jami and Conner have quite the story on how their love story began, but there is no doubt they have found their soulmate in each other!


Tell us about THE dress!

"The dress is from bridal suite. I was not expecting to find a dress that day, but just wanted to start looking. Once I tried this dress on I knew it was the one."-Jami

It's always those ones that you may not instantly love on the wrack, but as soon as you put it on, everything feels right in the world! It may take 1 dress to try on or even 30 dresses, but as long as you end up feeling like a queen at the end of the day you did something right!!


Tell Us About Your First Dance!

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE SONG?:Forever after All by Luke Combs

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THAT SONG?: "Luke Combs was our first concert when we started dating. We saw him again while engaged, and have tickets to see him next month as husband and wife! This song means a lot to us."-Jami

In these moments, it really starts to set in that "Hey...we are actually married!" and you can't help but get lost in every single second! Jami and Conner were 100% in their own world, and we aren't mad about it!


Describe the BRIDE on your wedding day!

"She was calm and collective which made the day easy. She was absolutely stunning! Her dress and flowers were gorgeous. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her. She definitely made me shed a few, (or a lot), of tears."-Conner

Jami was surprisingly laid back on the wedding day, which is not normal for any bride on their big day! You could see just how special this day was to her, and she enjoyed every single moment of the day. Not to mention, she was absolutely breathtaking!


Describe the GROOM on your wedding day!

"Incredibly handsome. He was very emotional, and always had a smile on his face. His love for me was shown by the way he looked at me. Not to mention, he had amazing dance moves!"-Jami

Sometimes it takes a lot for our grooms to let those emotions out, but Conner definitely wore his emotions on his sleeves! We always try to remind our grooms that no matter what anyone says, it IS okay to cry! Plus...who doesn't love a man that cries?!


What was the most EMOTIONAL part of the day and WHY?

"Reading the personal vows to each other in private."-Conner/ Jami

I know when deciding on how you want your day to play out it can be very overwhelming! Do we see each other, do we not see each other? There are too many choices to make already!! I very much am a sucker for first looks, because it reliefs so much stress and anxiety from waiting! It is also very intimate as well. Conner and Jami read their vows to one another, and there was not a dry eye in sight!


What is ONE moment of your wedding you will always remember?

"When I turned around for the first look expecting to see Jami but it was my best man in a dress!"-Conner

We always get so excited when we hear that the groom will be getting a little surprise on their wedding day! We have seen some crazy first looks with the best man, but this is one of the best in our books!


What is ONE moment of your wedding you will always remember?

"Standing with my husband after a few pictures alone, and looking at all of our guests having such a great time. We took a moment alone to reflect on the day, and watched as our friends and families danced."-Jami

These are those moments we love to hear the most! Finding time to step back from the crazy, can be hard, but when you do it all starts to feel like a dream!


Favorite Part of the Phocus Experience?

"Tim’s over the top personality, attention to detail, & willingness to go above & beyond for his clients."-Jami

Overall, the Bond's wedding day was such a fun day from start to finish! It was full of laughter, tears, and party animal vibes! We couldn't have been more honored to capture this day for Jami and Conner.
