Kat + Matt // Chic Americana Estate Wedding

Live oak tree


Kat + Matt • Misty Morning Hounds Estate, Gainesville • February 18th, 2017

Kat + Matt were married at the place where they were brought together- Gainesville's version of Downtown Abbey! Kat works in government, and Matt is a fireman, so these two are always giving their time to their communities. So it was amazing to see all the love from the community of folks who came together to make Kat & Matt's dream wedding come to life! Kat has an elegant sense of style that showed through in all the details of her day- with patriotic red, white and blue themes in her bridesmaids cranberry gowns and red roses, the groomsmen's navy suits. Their wedding was the very first one to take place in the newly constructed barn, and their family did an incredible job of transforming it with gold uplighting, tulle drapery and a grand chandelier! After some lucky morning rain, the skies cleared just in time for these two to tie the knot under a centarian live oak tree on the 360 acre property, called the Jaguar Oak. It was absolutely magic as the sun set as they exchanged their rings and vows.  Many thanks to the new Mr. and Mrs. Bean- aka The Harrisons for letting me and our second photographer Rachel tell your wedding story! It was an honor being part of the incredible team that made this day so special!
