Number One Tip for Future Phocus Couples to Consider About The Wedding Day:

All the planning is done, it’s time to sit back and enjoy it!

We had the absolute best day with Clara and Bubba. These two were so wonderful to work with throughout their wedding day. Clara has the sweetest personality, and Bubba can literally make anyone laugh. Let's just say, the day was full of laughter.

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

I am most looking forward to seeing the reactions of Bubba and Sadie during the ceremony. -Clara

What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? I’m most Looking forward to the pictures of my first look of Clara. -Bubba

How did you two meet? (Tell us all those little details!)

We met playing rugby at a sevens tournament in Birmingham. Bubba had broken his hand and Clara splinted it with a beer box.

You ever just meet two people and see how perfect they fit. From the way that bubba lights up Clara's face every time he makes her smile, to the way Bubba looks when he sees Clara, it's as though these two were meant for one another.

Tell us about THE dress! What made you fall in love?

It is so sparkly! I’m usually pretty dressed down so I wanted something wonderful and magical for the day.

What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?

The song is “In spite of ourselves” by John Prine. It’s weird, heart felt, a little crass and definitely unique. It’s a song that we have been listening to and singing in the car together for years!

Their reception was full of dancing, laughing and a lot of love. When it came time for the toasts, so many people got up and shared stories and memories of these two. I could definitely feel the love everyone had towards Bubba and Clara.

Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day:

Complete joy -Bubba

Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day:

Roll tide, he cried! It made me feel such joy to see his reaction, everything was worth it! -Clara

What was the most emotional part of the day for you?

When my family sang “hello my honey” to Bubbas family. It’s a song that we sing together, especially when my Pop Pop was alive. Again, a weird tradition but it was a very sweet and unexpected surprise! -Clara

What was the most emotional part of the day for you?

The vows- Bubba

What is ONE moment of your day that you will always remember?

A surprising amount of people dancing and belting out third eye blind on the dance floor. It was a genuinely joyous and nostalgic moment.

We had the best day celebrating with Clara, Bubba and their family. From the getting ready moments to the end of the night last song, the day was absolutely perfect. We loved getting to celebrate with them and their family. We hope they have so many years filled with laughter and memories!

Favorite part of the Phocus Experience?

They were so professional and adapting to the wild family I have. I felt heard and seen and that they captured all the moments that were important to us. We have a very large family and this was one of the only moments we were all together and they navigated it very well.
