What could be more endearing to your loved one than an evening on the white, sandy beach at sunset and a promise to love one another.
How about a glass of champagne? A taste of wedding cake? A reception with music, entertainment, and a toast to your lives together?
The Islander and Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe will host a Valentine’s Day celebration — Islander Promise Day — to share vows, make new commitments, start anew, and promise “to love and cherish one another.”
Couples are invited to marry, commit or recommit in a mass ceremony set to take place at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe at the Manatee Public Beach, 4000 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach.
A Promise Day certificate and reception are included for a $10 donation. A licensed marriage certificate, which requires a pre-approved county marriage license, costs $25.
The reception, following the 5:30 promise ceremony on the sand, will include a champagne toast and wedding cake. Registration for the event begins at 5 p.m. on the cafe patio.
Proceeds are donated to a local nonprofit.
