Much like their love story — college sweethearts turned Mr. and Mrs. — Amanda and Matt Kundert’s wedding was a classic from beginning to end.
The University of Oklahoma alumni said "I do" on May 18, 2019 at Highland Park United Methodist Church before fêting with family, friends, and fellow Sooners fans at Brook Hollow Golf Club.
“Truly, our vision for our wedding was to have our favorite family and friends in one place, celebrating us getting married,” says Amanda. “I wanted our wedding to be classic and timeless to where, if we looked back in 40 years, we’d still love everything we decided to do.”
In contrast to the couple’s low-key engagement, which took place on the patio of Chino Chinatown in Trinity Groves (their favorite restaurant), the wedding was a posh event with no shortage of glitz or glam.
The bride beamed in a white gown from Warren Barrón Bridal, while the wedding party looked sophisticated in black.
Observing tradition, the bride donned something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.
For her something blue, she wore the blue amethyst and diamond ring her father gave her mother when she was born. Tucked away in her shoe was something borrowed: a third-generation paternal mercury dime.
Lace from her mother’s wedding dress was wrapped around her bouquet — her something old — and sparkly Golden Goose sneakers peaked out of her gown, as something new.
While the day was filled with unforgettable moments, Amanda says her walk down the aisle was most memorable.
“Seeing Matt when I was walking down the aisle was the most special moment of the day,” she shares.
Though, the family dances that followed were a close second.
“After our first dance and the mother/son and father/daughter dance, Matt danced with my grandmother and I danced with my grandfather at the same time,” says Amanda. “They were our only grandparents there, so we wanted to make it memorable for them.”
Equally memorable, the Brook Hollow ballroom stunned with flickering candles and towering flower arrangements by The Garden Gate.
Event planner Colleen Harkins brought the couple’s vision of a classic celebration to life, creating a romantic ambiance that never goes out of style.
A live band kept everyone moving on a custom dance floor brandishing the couple's monogram — the bride was ever-so thankful for her comfortable sneakers — and bride and groom’s cakes, courtesy of Frosted Art Bakery, served as focal points until the time came to slice and serve.
When the night came to a close, guests parted on a sweet note.
Cotton candy was handed out in monogrammed tubs to be savored the next day — and in some cases, scarfed down in the car on the way home.
