A welder creates his wife a replica of the 'Game of Thrones' Iron Throne as a wedding gift.
Michael Hayes is a newly married, 32-year-old war veteran from Louisville, KY.
When Michael met his now-wife Kacie, one thing the couple quickly bonded over was their mutual love of the show Game of Thrones.
The two regular cosplayed as everyone’s favorite on-screen couple, Jon Snow and Danaerys Targaryen, at regional renaissance festivals while dating.
When it was time to get married, Mike decided to pay homage to the show by using his welding skills to make Kacie’s wedding gift.
Michael, who is a student in welding school, worked with his instructors for over 100 hours in two months time, to make a life-sized replica of the coveted Iron Throne.
The throne was made with over 400 individual aluminum swords. Each sword cut by Michael and his instructors.
After months of hard work, Michael and his instructors finished the Iron Throne replica. It was featured prominently at the couple’s wedding– and Daenerys.. I mean Kacie, looked absolutely stunning while seated in it.
Lucky for us GOT fans, Michael has decided to let everyone have a chance to sit on the Iron Throne.
That’s right, you can rent the throne for your own special event. Just send Michael an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please excuse my back, I’ve got a freaking Iron Throne to book.
