We interrupt your regular winter programming for a touch of floral bliss: when photographer Rachel Tweggs saw the breathtaking architecture of the Hollis Botanical Gardens, she quickly cast a vision of a beautiful bride wandering its garden paths in a feat of romanticism. What resulted is an ode to flowers and warmth that we just couldn’t pass up in these incredibly chilly months!
A word from photographer Rachel Tweggs of Capture Alaska Photography:
“This location has beautiful garden views with fountains as well as unique European architectural details that made it a perfect location for bridal portraits or a romantic outdoor wedding. I absolutely loved the romance and the architecture of the garden, and how perfect it was for bridal portraits. There are so many times where circumstances happen during a wedding day that don’t allow time for bridal portraits; it is my hope that shoots like this will inspire brides to take the time to do bridal portraits before their wedding day!”
