SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Each Valentine's Day, hundreds of couples renew their commitment as part of Sarasota County Parks and Recreation's "Say I Do Again" wedding vow renewal. Romance is in the air during the annual ceremony, held on the powdery white sands of Siesta Key Beach, which was named "America's Best Beach" by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka "Dr. Beach" in 2011.
The ceremony, one of the largest in Florida, attracted 800 participants last year, along with 200 guests.
"Every year, this event gets bigger and bigger," said Jennifer Groff, Sarasota County Parks and Recreation program coordinator. "We are expecting an even larger turnout on Siesta Key Beach this year because of the America's #1 Beach ranking. What better way to spend Valentine's Day than sharing a gorgeous sunset on America's best beach with the most special person in your life? It really makes for a memorable evening."
This year's vow renewal ceremony will be held Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 6 p.m., at 948 Beach Road on Siesta Key. All legally married couples are welcome to participate. Advance registration by Feb. 11 is required and can be done online at www.parksonline.scgov.net or by calling 941-861-7275. This cost is $5 per couple.
