Renew Your Marriage Vows on Valentine's Day

Jan. 27, 2009 — Love will be in the air Feb. 14 when local and visiting couples renew their vows at the 7th annual Celebration of Love at Trunk Bay Beach on St. John.
"It's a wonderful way to honor their relationship and celebrate Valentine's Day," Anne Marie Porter said.
Porter and another St. John resident, Kathy Dove, have organized the vow-renewal ceremony for the past six years.
The celebration is free, and Porter said everyone is welcome. It begins at 5 p.m.
Last year 100 couple renewed their vows. Over those six years 550 couples have participated, representing more than 8,000 years of marriage.
"There's something powerful about renewing vows with other couples," Porter said.
The couples are welcomed as they approach Trunk Bay Beach by Michael Banzhaf playing flute. Lee Morris and Livy Hitchcock will serenade them as they reach the beach.
Porter, who is a non-denominational minister, performs the ceremony.
Each woman will receive a rose and couples go home with a certificate to remember the occasion.
For more information, call Porter at 693-5153 or 626-4658.
