Abby Jo and Kayleb wanted to get married outside in December, and their wedding team worked day and night to make that dream come to life, starting with the venue. With its rustic barn, stone bridal cottage, and lush green outdoor ceremony location, The Cooper Estate quickly became the perfect place for the couple to say “I do”. Abby Jo surprised Kayleb with a small cake decorated with The University of Tennessee colors, and the duo personalized their wedding by treating their guests to a pie bar. Angela Winsor Photography followed the couple throughout the day, capturing each sweet kiss and every bit of the fun their guests had celebrating their love with them.

The Cooper Estate, Miami, Florida
My wedding party wore different styled dusty blue maxi dresses by Amsale with greenery crowns in their hair. My bridesmaids were all basically models who stole the show with how beautiful they looked!
Walking down the aisle to see my groom for the first time. We did not do a first look, and chose to share that moment with all of our guests. I was so excited and nervous to walk down the aisle, and the second I saw my husbands face everything else went blank and my heart exploded! Something I will never forget!
After we kissed for the first time as husband and wife, we danced down the aisle to “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. It was the best time because we just got married and were reminded that Christmas was also in two weeks!
My dress was my dream! I wanted the rustic/vintage look that went along with our venue and wedding theme. I loved the sleeves and that long train with the big bow. My headpiece was a favorite as well! Twigs and Honey makes gorgeous headpieces of all different kinds that were more affordable than other places I looked.
We love pie. So instead of serving cake, we had an adorable pie bar. Also, my husband loves The University of Tennessee, so I surprised him with a small UT polka dot cake for us to cut into and wore a matching UT garter. The little details are what make your wedding extra special to you.
We chose our venue because it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. It felt like we were in another world. The rustic barn, the stone bridal cottage, and the lush green ceremony spot captured our hearts the second we walked on property. Not to mention the food was some of the best food we’ve ever had!
