Katelyn & Elias' Wedding in Port Charlotte and LaBelle, Florida // Wedding Highlight

Katelyn & Elias

Katelyn and Elias Carmona had such an amazingly beautiful day! The Carmonas were married on a beautiful Fall day on October 21st, 2017! These two have my heart! Ahh! Katelyn and Elias both have such huge, sincere, and joyful hearts. Elias is so right, when Katelyn walks into a room, her smile lights it up! Their smiles are contagious and the Carmonas are such an incredible team. Jacob and I could not be happier for Katelyn and Elias on their new journey in marriage together. I can't wait to see what's in store for these two!

This wedding was extra special for Jacob and I because we actually went to college at Florida State University with both Katelyn and Elias! (Go Noles!!)Seeing these two grow separately, and then together through dating, engagement, and now to marriage is really such a blessing to see. I was so honored and excited when Katelyn asked us to film their wedding day! How cool is that to film a couple's big day for people you've known for several years?! Ahh so cool!

Katelyn and Elias, your wedding day was so you two! In so many ways, your wedding reflected so well who both of you are, your love for Christ, your passion for each other, and your loyalty to the FSU Seminoles! ;) So much sweetness in one day! Congratulations again, Carmonas, on your beautiful marriage! Cheers to many more amazing years as husband and wife!

From the couple on how they met & fell in love:
"We met at Florida State 4 years ago at Chi Alpha Campus Ministry. In January 2014, we started meeting for weekly lunches at Chick-fil-a (Praise God) where we were able to get to know each other better. It didn't take long before I started falling for him, but it took him a little longer to hop on the same train. After a lot of time and consideration, Elias and I finally started dating in May 2014. I can't remember exactly when we fell in love, but I know our relationship has been a beautiful transition from friends to best friends that are head over heels in love with each other."

From the couple on how Elias proposed:
"In the course of our relationship we started co-pastoring a youth group together in May 2015 (I promise it's relevant!). Every summer our youth group goes to a camp in Marianna, FL and it's a HUGE deal for them! This summer of 2016 was our second time going with them. Every evening there's a service, but before each service there's a game show called "Let's Make a Deal" to earn extra points for your team. Apparently Elias had been planning this proposal for MONTHS, but I was absolutely clueless. I was chosen from my team to make a deal and had to pick an envelope and open it. The envelope I chose had a very low amount (I ended up finding out all envelopes were low), and then I decided I wanted to make a deal so I was told I could choose what was in the announcers pocket or choose what was behind Curtain #1. I chose Curtain #1 and Elias came out and got down on one knee and I lost it, I was SO excited!! Plus, the crowd roared in excitement which was a super cool feeling! Side note: if I would've chosen the pocket, there was a ring pop and the announcer would've told me I didn't want that ring and then Elias would come out. Now Elias is a reserved guy, so the fact that he proposed in front of over 350 youth plus all the staff and counselors was a super huge deal! Another side note: I dreamt of Elias proposing to me this way months and months prior but never said anything, so needless to say it was a dream come true!!!!"

Wow! OK I love all of this! Isn't their love so incredibly genuine and amazing! I am so thankful that they've found each other and I love being able to call them our friends.
