Meet Kat and Garrett. These two love birds were such a fun couple and always filled the rooms with joy. For Kat, Windwood has been a part of her life for over a decade. She grew up riding horses and participating in competitions at Windwood Equestrian. She met Windwood’s owner William as a young girl who loved horses and jumping competitions. When Garrett proposed to Kat, she knew Windwood was one of the places she hoped was available. She called William and set up a tour to come out and tour the property. Garrett and Kat soon fell in love with the idea of a Windwood Wedding, and the rest was history. The two became Mr. & Mrs. this past spring.
Kat’s details for the big day were some of my personal favorites. The rings had a story to tell, and photographer Cindy captured them so well. One of Kat’s unique “costume” pieces of the day was her custom white jean jacket with fringe and, of course, her new name. You can find similar jackets on etsy! Kat’s perfume smelled so good! I am sure the smell will bring back special memories for years to come!
During the planning process, the bride and groom selected Katie and Cindy Photography as their photographers. Katie and Cindy is a mother and daughter team based out of Birmingham, Alabama. Insider Info: Katie and Cindy shot three weddings here within nine days. We like to call in our wedding marathon week! During that week, one of the weddings was Kat and Garratt’s, and might I say the pictures are everything. Just look at the precious moment they captured above when Garrett saw his bride for the first time.
Kat and Garrett tied the knot near Windwood’s school barn. The backdrop was a blooming Lady Rose Banks Rose Bush with white roses. The ceremony chairs were arranged in a half-circle, creating an inviting, intimate ceremony. The two had a traditional ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family.
Kat and Garrett’s reception was picture perfect! The high-top tents kept everything dry during our mid-morning shower, and Kat fully embraced the rain. Did you know: Rain on your wedding day is good luck because it signifies that your marriage will last. A knot that becomes wet is tough to untie – therefore, when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel! By the reception, the rain showers had cleared, and the grounds were dry just in time to party. The Bride and Groom danced the night away with the band, Just a Few Cats, all while enjoying their cake from Olexa’s.
Kat and Garrett, Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day. We hope that the day was everything you ever dreamed it would be and more. From William, Arden, and the entire Windwood Events Team, we wish you the best and most loved year yet! Here’s to you and the many years ahead!
