Grand Pines Resort Wedding Photography | Abby and John

Abby and John tied the knot last month in the north woods of Hayward, Wisconsin at Grand Pines Resort. Their cabin wedding day was a bit chillier and rainier than they had imagined  but Abby and John completely embraced the day and enjoyed it! You can expect nothing less from these two adventurous people; I mean, Abby skies the Birkie every year while John skies the course on the medic team! As, John's sister put it "It's only fitting that their wedding day involve some sort of physical torture!" 

All jokes about the weather aside, we had an amazing day capturing memories for these two on their wedding day! They are an amazing couple full of love for each other and full of love for life! Here are a few of my favorite shots from their wedding day!
