These two have a passion for the sea and for having fun together with their friends and family! We are honored to be a part of their shindig as they tied the knot (literally) with a traditional hand-fasting ceremony on Amanda’s family property in Twin Lakes, Idaho.

The fun started with a laid-back BBQ style rehearsal dinner the night before. We got to meet their family, hear the band practice and witness the start up of the BBQ pit for the pig roast that will be enjoyed the next day!

The wedding details included many hand-made nautical elements – including a gorgeous wedding arch, guestbook, cake table, ring-bearing boat, and a hand-carved heart-shaped box made with African Purple Heart wood: all made by the groom, a talented boat-builder!
