Islander courts Island wedding tales

Two doves take flight - a tradition that takes place at the culmination of Island wedding vows.

Did you say “I do” by the Gulf?

Did you take your vows on Anna Maria Island?

Do you have a memorable moment - funny, touching, romantic, horrific - to share about getting hitched in what the Island’s premiere wedding photographer, Jack Elka, has dubbed the “wedding capital of the world”?

What happened in Las Vegas may stay in Las Vegas.

But The Islander wants to know - and share - what happened at weddings on the Island.

Please, share your stories and photographs.

Write to “Taking the plunge,” via e-mail (preferred) to, or mail to The Islander, 5404 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach FL 34217; or fax toll free to 1-866-362-9821.

The deadline for submissions is Jan. 30.

Then watch for stories in The Islander on Feb. 6.
