Elizabeth and Carson's wedding was the epitome of tropical elegance, held at the beautiful Isla Del Sol in St. Petersburg, Florida. The couple's love for each other and the ocean were evident in every aspect of their big day, from the stunning beachfront venue to the whimsical details that adorned every corner of their ballroom reception.

The wedding was unique in many ways, but what really stood out was the fact that the location itself held a special place in Elizabeth and Carson's hearts. The couple met on the coast of Panama, and the ocean has been a constant presence throughout their relationship ever since. They later hung out at Pass-a-Grille, got engaged by the ocean in Hawaii, and now they were getting married on the shores of St. Pete. It's safe to say that the ocean holds a very special meaning for them - it's a symbol of love, new beginnings, and peace.

The couple's love for the ocean was reflected in the wedding's overall theme. The reception ballroom was decked out in greenery and tropical flowers, with pops of vibrant colors that added a playful touch. The tables were adorned with seashells, citrus fruits, and other seaside details that made guests feel like they were dining on the beach. And let's not forget the stunning ocean view, which served as the perfect backdrop for the entire celebration.

But the couple didn't just focus on the aesthetics of their wedding - they were also excited about the emotional aspects. They wanted to create a mix of vibes and emotions throughout the day, from tears shed over their deep and passionate love for each other, to tears of joy shared with friends and family. And with the majority of their guests being from out of town, the couple was ready to let loose and have a good time. They wanted to dance, be silly, and create memories with their closest friends who also shared their love for Tampa Bay .

Not only was Elizabeth and Carson's wedding a celebration of their love, but it was also a special day for their furry friend, Monty! As the couple's beloved pup, Monty played an important role in their big day. He ran down the aisle to join the wedding party and even helped the bride get ready in the morning. Monty's presence added an extra level of joy and excitement to the festivities, reminding everyone that love and family come in all shapes and sizes.

As Elizabeth and Carson put it, "a place is made by the people you shared it with," and their wedding day was no exception. They were surrounded by their besties, who had all built their friendships by the shore. And the fact that the couple was able to bring all of their loved ones together in one place to celebrate their love was truly a magical experience.

But perhaps the most special aspect of Elizabeth and Carson's wedding day were their vows. As evidenced by their sneak peek trailer, their words were heartfelt, emotional, and truly a testament to the deep love they share for each other. Their love story is one for the books, and it's clear that their wedding day was the perfect representation of everything they stand for.

In the end, Elizabeth and Carson's wedding was a true celebration of love, friendship, and the ocean. From the stunning venue to the whimsical details and the emotional vows, every aspect of the day was a reflection of the couple's unique love story. It was a day that they and their loved ones will never forget, and a reminder of the power of love to bring people together in the most magical ways.
