The Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis was a favorite place for couples just engaged to have their photo taken. Founded in 1859 by Henry Shaw, the Garden is a National Historic Landmark and a center for science, conservation, education and horticultural display — widely considered one of the top three botanical gardens in the world.
As well as the botanical gardens, it has Japanese and Children’s gardens, tram rides, and a butterfly house. It’s an extremely popular attraction in St. Louis.
Of course not all couples arrive on time — which was OK with me as it gave me some time to walk around and take some shots of the amazing plants and flowers there.
