Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Mike and Amanda Hays!
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!
Their two adorable dogs, Kona and Huck, took on the two important roles of flower girl and ring bearer.
During the formal dances, Mike surprised Amanda with the hand-made box, with a personal note written on the inside of the lid.
Their outdoor reception included lots of dancing, games, and a large roast pig for dinner!
The Lucky Lizard Band from Hawaii provided the entertainment for the night.
We are so happy for these two! Mike and Amanda were amazing people to spend the day with and we are so glad that we could be apart of their day!
