Number One Tip for Future Phocus Couples to Consider About The Wedding Day: Make sure you stop and take it all in on the big day. It goes by so fast!
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? (bride's response) Special moments in the ceremony, especially those from before I walked down the aisle that I missed!
What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? (groom's response) The first kiss!
How did you two meet? (Tell us all those little details!) A mutual friend set us up at a trivia night in our college town (Gainesville, FL - go Gators!)
Tell us about THE dress! What made you fall in love? I loved the back and the lace detail on the train. It made me feel like a real bride!!
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it? Then - Brad Paisley. We listened to countless songs and couldn’t decide, but when we heard that one we both fell in love. It was a beautiful song for the first dance, and it will be perfect to listen to years from now when we look back on our wedding day.
(For the Groom) Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day: Excitement and joy, knowing that this is the person I am going to spend my life with.
(For the Bride) Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day: Seeing him put all my nerves about the day at ease and made me really start to enjoy it. It felt like coming home :)
What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (bride's response) My now-husbands vows! They were the perfect combination of funny and sweet, absolutely perfect.
What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (groom's response) Reading my vows
What is ONE moment of your day that you will always remember? Trying and failing to get the groom’s ring on during the ceremony - that Pensacola heat was no joke, LOL!
Favorite part of the Phocus Experience? It felt like there was nobody even there, which made the groom feel comfortable even though he normally hates cameras!
