Abby + Jess | Farm Wedding | Hampton MN

A weekend of camping, love, and laughter, at an eclectic Minnesota family elk farm.

Classic girl meets girl at a bar, and the rest is history. Abby and Jess brought together a joyful group of humans to celebrate their union, at Abby’s family farm. People came from across the country, and the world be a part of their day. As so many put in, we all want a part of Abby + Jess’s love. Abby’s bright personality and Jess’s calm demeanor balance each other perfectly, a ying to complement one another’s yang. This weekend kicked off with a rehearsal dinner BBQ, camping, and pool party then ending with an adventure themed wedding, full of beautifully thought out DIY details, and dancing the night away.
