Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula have been engaged for a little more than a year, so you better believe their wedding planning is in full swing. Unfortunately, the Summer House couple has run into some hiccups on the road to the altar.
Kyle recently told Page Six that he and Amanda have tried to secure a wedding venue twice already to no avail. “One of the venues we actually looked at was in Vermont, which is very near and dear to my heart,” he said. “It’s where my mom’s from, so she was willing to play ball, but that’s actually the one we got cold feet on. [Another] we missed the deadline on — a corporate event took it.”
Still, they have an idea of where they're going to say, "I do." “It’ll be on the East Coast,” Amanda told Page Six. “We’re close to signing a venue and solidifying a date, and then the rest of the planning will follow.”
But Amanda admitted to the publication that she's "very behind" on wedding planning and hasn't yet decided on a dress or who will be in her bridal party.
By the way things are going, Kyle joked that his pals Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark, who got engaged 10 months after the Summer House couple in July, "will get married before we do." “I saw them doing engagement photos, I was like, ‘Yo, are we going to do that?’” he said.
Kyle popped the question to Amanda over Labor Day weekend in 2018, which we got to witness last season of Summer House (clip above). "I'm in shock," Amanda said of Kyle's proposal in an interview during the Summer House Season 3 finale. "I mean, this completely took me by surprise, but I honestly could not be happier that it happened when it did."
Of course, Kyle was just as emotional about the romantic moment. "The last three years have been the best three years of my life, and I just want to be the best husband ever," he said during the episode. "I'm a lucky guy."
