Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula's Relationship
Cooke and Batula first met in 2015 and have been together ever since. In fact, their relationship has been a focal point in Summer House.
Three years after getting together, the duo got engaged in 2018 when Cooke popped the question with a two-and-a-half carat diamond engagement ring.
They announced their engagement with an Instagram post where Batula could be seen showing off her ring.
The pair also gushed about each other and revealed their plans to tie the knot in the future.
“It’s surreal,” Batula said of the engagement. “Aside from how funny and sexy he is, Kyle’s my best friend. He’s the person I go to for everything. And he forces me to be a better person in different ways by pushing me outside of my comfort zone.”
She further added that life with Cooke was exciting and that both she and her partner wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.
Their Wedding Got Postponed Multiple Times
Following their engagement, Cooke and Batula were set to tie the knot in September 2020. However, they had to postpone their wedding because of the pandemic.
“We were literally getting ready to drop out ‘Save the Dates’ in the mail when lockdown hit,” Cooke told People. “Like a lot of couples, we were going back and forth as to what we should do.”
The pair had to change their venue three times and their date five times before finally getting married in an outdoor ceremony in the backyard of her parents’ New Jersey home in September 2021.
Many of their co-stars were present for the ceremony, including Paige DeSorbo, Lindsay Hubbard, Carl Radke, Danielle Olivera, and Luke Gulbranson. DeSorbo and Radke served as a bridesmaid and groomsman, respectively.
