Update: Pam Bondi isn't getting married after all (yet)

pam_bondi_wedding_party.jpgFlorida Attorney General Pam Bondi and her fiance are waiting a few more weeks to tie the knot.

8106293.jpgInstead of a wedding ceremony Saturday afternoon in the Cayman Islands, Bondi and Tampa opthamologist Greg Henderson, left, will "make it official in several weeks when all our family members can be there," Bondi said when reached at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman.

An event being held Saturday evening will be a "celebration of upcoming nuptials," Bondi said.

The wedding ultimately will be "small, private and in a Baptist church soon" in the Tampa area, she added.

In the meantime, she said, "We are thrilled to be here having the time of our lives."

Among those who joined Bondi and Henderson this weekend are Gov. Rick Scott and his wife, Ann; South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson; Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober; and Kim and John Kirtley. Kim Kirtley was the communications director for Bondi's campaign when she ran for attorney general.

Although the AG apparently tried to keep the event a secret, state Sen. Paula Dockery let the cat out of the bag on her Facebook page Thursday when she reported seeing Bondi at Tampa International Airport and being on the same flight to the islands.

Dockery also posted the above photo of Bondi playing flight attendant during the trip.
