More than 70 couples crowded the Trunk Bay beach at sunset Tuesday to renew their marriage vows as part of the annual Valentine’s Day “Celebration of Love.”
The event is organized by Cathy Dove and Anne Marie Porter, a non-denominational minister and wedding planner. Each couple receives a certificate of marriage re-affirmation
“Our National Park beaches are among some of the most beautiful in the world and ideal for our marriage vow renewal ceremony,” Porter said.
Karin and Bob Schlesinger, owners of Tropical Focus Photography, provided these photos. (BTW, Bob and Karin celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last week.)
Among the renewal participants were Henry and Betty Costabel of Cornwall, N.Y. The secret of their 57 years together? “You’ve got to know how to play cards,” he told the St. John Source.
