I Still Do!

By J.L. Meyer | Photography by Natasha Jasperson

In a world where many marriages end in divorce, it seems these couples have figured out the secret to love everlasting. On April 18, about a dozen couples gathered on the sugary-white sands of Mexico Beach, Florida, to renew their promises to each other.

All couples who had previously been married in the little coastal town or on its shores were invited to return for a shared vow renewal ceremony on the beach at Sunset Park followed by a reception that was held at the El Governor Motel. The event was organized and hosted by the Mexico Beach Community Development Council, whose goal is to create a destination for tourists and locals alike to come and enjoy the beach, the variety of exceptional events, and the genuine hospitality found there.


They’ve found a certain someone they want to stay with for the rest of their life, and it’s really fulfilling to be the one to join them together.

“Marrying Jack” Mullen, licensed notary and member of the Mexico Beach CDC, performed the ceremony. Mullen loves bringing couples together in holy matrimony in Mexico Beach and sharing his town with visitors. “The best part of doing weddings is working with people at a very happy time in their life,” he says. “They’ve found a certain someone they want to stay with for the rest of their life, and it’s really fulfilling to be the one to join them together.”


Despite a blustery day at the beach, the rain held out long enough for the shared vow renewal to take place, and the event even attracted the attention of beachgoers who stopped to watch the sweet moments and listened to the thoughtful oration on lifelong commitment.
