The Turtle Bay Resort was prominently featured in last Sunday’s, July 26 episode of A&E’s reality show Hammertime making for a perfect backdrop for a surprise for Hammer’s wife, Stephanie.
In the prior episode, Hammer announced that the family will spend their vacation in Hawaii at the Turtle Bay Resort. What Stephanie didn’t realize was that her husband of 23 years was planning to ask her to marry her again and renew their wedding vows. While having a romantic dinner at the resort’s Ola Restaurant, Hammer drops down on one knee and asks his wife if she would “marry the same man” she married 23 years ago. She agreed.
The episode concludes with a horse-drawn carriage carrying the couple to the beach at sunset where family and friends gather for the evening vow renewal ceremony. (See above photo).
Pura Stephens, Turtle Bay Resort’s catering manager, received the last-minute call for the episode.
“We didn’t have much time to prepare but we knew this would be on the national stage and had to be extra special, showcasing the resort along with our very special vendors that work with us,” Stephens said. “Our calls went out to the top, crème-de-la-crème vendors associated with weddings. My hopes were that they would want to join us on this project because…we were asking them to donate their services.”
