Hey, Kevin, we heard the great news about your engagement to Monica Wright! Congratulations!
Awesome! Do you guys know where you’re going to hold the ceremony?
It’s all good, Kevin! Don’t sweat it. I’m sure Monica is super patient and both of you are excited to grow old with one another and blah blah blah love blah blah happiness blah blah blah.
Let’s be real here: Chances are Thunder star Kevin Durant and his fiance, WNBA star Monica Wright, won’t exchange vows in Oklahoma.
But, what if they did?
Here are five Oklahoma spots the duo should consider if they want to keep the nuptials within state lines. These are places my wife and I looked at when we were considering an Oklahoma wedding, so all thoughts presented are based on my impressions.
5. Postoak Lodge and Retreat in Tulsa
It’s hard to say which location would be best for Durant and Wright, considering we don’t know what kind of ceremony they want to have, how many people will be invited and so on. But, if the two are looking for a rustic yet romantic setting, then the Postoak Lodge and Retreat is a great option. It’s set on about 1,000 acres with a ton of accommodations for what I’d consider a medium-sized party.
I’m not sure if Durant and Wright are outdoorsy people, but if they are then Postoak has a leg-up on a lot of similar locations in the state. They have hiking trails, ziplining, skeet shooting and bird watching. Plus, I hear they have a pretty competent executive chef and kitchen crew that produce some tasty food.
Above all that, though, the land Postoak is settled on is just flat-out pretty. It’d make for some great wedding photos.
4. Rose Briar Place in Oklahoma City
Although Rose Briar Place offers inclusive wedding packages, the kind of money Durantula has enables them to do their own thing. There are few places in Oklahoma City prettier than Rose Briar, which is an ideal spot for a smaller, intimate wedding ceremony.
It’s not nearly as rustic as Postoak, but it blends the contemporary and country really well, if that’s something Team Kevica are into.

3. Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City
The Myriad Botanical Gardens is a super popular wedding spot in Oklahoma, and with good reason. It’s beautiful, lush and unique, and it’s in the heart of Oklahoma City. Weddings held there are normally out in the open, which might be difficult for Durant and his bride-to-be to pull off considering their popularity. But if done right, it’d make for some beautiful memories.

2. Vesica Piscis Chapel in Tulsa
One of the redeeming qualities about Tulsa is the Vesica Piscis Chapel. It’s pretty stunning, and even though I’ve never seen a bad picture of the place, seeing the property in person is a must for any couple looking to get hitched. It’s one of those places that just inspires awe and would be a solid choice for a wedding where about 200 people are invited.

1. The Dominion House in Guthrie
Ah, the old Dominion House, how I love thee.
Guthrie takes the cake when it comes to beautiful and classic wedding spots in Oklahoma. The Dominion House is the definition of wow, and offers both outdoor and indoor locations to hold a wedding ceremony, all of which are picture-perfect. It’s just something about the Dominion House that makes me think any celebration hosted there would be an absolute blast. It’s traditional, but bold and romantic, and I think KD and future Mrs. KD would dig it.
So, Kevin, do any of these places seem like a spot where you and Monica, and your families, would enjoy celebrating?
Seriously, now: No matter where KD and MW decide to get married, all of Oklahoma and the Thunder Nation have nothing but love for them both, and congratulate them on the first day of the rest of their lives together.
But just one more question for Durant: Will James Harden be invited to the wedding? Maybe LeBron?
