St. Louis Wedding Photography

Every Spring, Saint Louisans are gifted with an exotic assortment of orchids to view at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. This year’s theme was “Orchid Mania”, a time of increasing fascination in Orchid collection and cultivation during the Victorian Period that is referred to as the “Orchidelirium”. The Victorian Orchid Fever led to new species discovery and ignited a movement of intense study, collection and cultivation of the exquisitely beautiful and diverse flower. I hope you will enjoy this collection of images from this year’s exhibition, taken on a dark and stormy Spring morning.
