Bridal portraits may seem like an antiquated tradition, but they are definitely making a comeback. And if a portrait session means a little pre-wedding vacation with your gown and a fabulous photographer, why not? Just look to this Nordic bridal portrait session for inspiration.

And the wind brought the pale aqua and gold layers of silk to life.
