Jim and Amelia
Jim and Amelia had been married for 40 years. Jim wanted to surprise his wife, Amelia, with a 40th Anniversary Vow Renewal at Sand Key Park, so he had his daughter contact Intimate Weddings of Tampa to help with the arraignments for the ceremony on a Saturday Morning in early Summer.
Amelia was surprised as the couple made their way down to the beach under the ruse of a photograph for their friends 70th Birthday before they headed to brunch. The couple then made their way across the sand together to end up in front of their Wedding Arch. The couples’ custom designed ceremony included a special reading about Love, and 1 Corinthians 13. Then, in front of an intimate gathering of their family and friends, and with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop, the couple shared their own personal vows, and were pronounced “once again” as husband and wife by Rev Rick Lackore of Sensational Ceremonies.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Jim and Amelia Philbin on their 40th Anniversary and Vow Renewal!
