Hunter Fieri and his fiancée Tara Bernstein are enjoying the court before walking down the aisle.

On Sunday, June 23, Guy Fieri's eldest son and Bernstein, a content creator and professional pickleball player, celebrated their upcoming nuptials with a pickleball-themed engagement party in New York's Central Park.

Hunter, 27, and Bernstein are set to tie the knot in June 2025.

For the party, the bride-to-be wore an all-white activewear minidress with a collared neck and pleated skirt. She shared photos of herself getting ready and at the event on her Instagram Stories. Hunter matched in a white short-sleeve button-down and white shorts. Meanwhile, guests were decked out in all-black outfits, which is typical of dad Guy's wardrobe anyway.

A special logo with a racket, knife and chef hat appeared throughout the party — including on Bernstein’s dress and personalized pickleball rackets. But pickleball decor didn’t stop there. Tables were also topped with flower arrangements with pickleball balls in the vases.

In addition to the emblem, the rackets were personalized with the message, “Game. Set. Match. Forever After” and “Tara & Hunter Teammates for Life.”

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host, who also shares son Ryder, 18, with wife Lori, took time during the celebration to share kind words about the couple and the party.

“I’m just as in awe of what I’m watching happen,” Guy began his speech, addressing Hunter, Bernstein and the rest of the crowd.

He added that the pair put on “more of an event than I’ve seen [at] weddings” and pointed his attention to his future daughter-in-law, “You dream things up. And we love to think big, but I haven't met too many people who think bigger than us.”

He continued, gesturing around the party, “And you do these little nuances, little things to celebrate Hunter and to celebrate yourself.”

At the end of his speech, Guy spoke of what he expects for the couple’s future. “I really don’t have any expectation other than the universe, the world, is yours. You’re going to do whatever you two want to do. I think that you’ll have a great family. I think you’re going to have successful careers. I think you’re going to travel the world. I think you’re going to own it. But what you’ve shown us so far in this first year and a half has been pretty mind-blowing.”

The young couple, who got engaged on Thanksgiving in 2023, received some more love at their engagement party from another celebrity chef: Buddy Valastro. The Cake Boss alum designed a three-tier, vanilla-frosted cake dotted with flowers and edible pearls. The bottom tier read, “Congratulations to the Future Fieris” and the top tier had the pickleball-kitchen symbol with a pickleball ball and the letters “T” and “H.” Plus, there was an oversized diamond ring on top of the confection.

“WE LOVE YOU! So amazing — thank you for our delicious cake,” Bernstein wrote in an Instagram Stories post, tagging the Legends of the Fork star.

On Friday, June 14, the couple shared engagement photos on Instagram and announced that they were exactly one year away from becoming husband and wife.
