Valentine's Day Vow Renewal

Saying "I DO" Again…

For over 30 years on Valentine’s Day, couples have been celebrating a Renewal of Your Wedding Vows at sunset on beautiful Siesta Key Beach and Nokomis Beach. This year 325 couples in Siesta Key and 120 couples in Nokomis participated in the event. Twelfth Circuit Court Judge Debra Johnes Riva has officiated the ceremony on Siesta Key beach for the last three years. Judge Riva stated that “Whether the couple has been married for 45 minutes or for 65 years, the most satisfying part of the event is witnessing the couples express their love for each other through words (the actual vows) or with a simple hug or kiss. It is wonderful to see hundreds of married couples willing to publicly display their commitment to marriage!”

The non-denominational service begins each Valentine’s Day promptly at 6 p.m. Registration is required.  For more information on next years ceremony, contact Sarasota County Parks & Recreation at 941-861-5000.
