Story & Photos by Trebor Britt

Among the 300 couples who gathered on amazing Siesta Beach for this year’s “Say I Do, Again”, vow renewal ceremony were international couples from as far away as Germany and Hungary.

The nondenominational event was sponsored by Friends of Sarasota County Parks and Gulf Beach Weddings. Judge, Debra Johnes Riva of Sarasota’s 12th Judicial Circuit Court led the ceremony as the sun set over the sparkling Gulf of Mexico.

Designated photo opportunities included a spectacular sand sculpture, created and designed by Sarasota resident and Master Sand Sculptor, Brian Wigelsworth as well as several beautiful backdrops provided by Gulf Beach Weddings. Participants were given a frameable, Marriage Renewal certificate and a unique rose.

More than half the couples participated in the event before, which speaks loudly about the value and success of one of Sarasota’s most popular events.

They’ve been coming to Sarasota twice a year since Stephen asked Ulrike to marry him on this beach 25 years ago. They are fourth generation owners of a bakery their family established in 1898.
