Such a young couple! I love the bride’s dress – from the bustle I would guess this was made in the 1870’s. It is a CDV – carte de visite photo – taken at Bowman Photographers in Ottawa, Illinois.
This is a particular wedding favorite of mine – just look at her dress and veil – and a tiny shoe peeking out below! There are no names on the photo. It was taken by Rider Photography at 339 W. Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois. Again, I believe this photo is from the 1870’s.
Very nice wedding photo from the early twentieth century. Note the man is wearing the large flowers in the bridal bouquet. I think the greenery and flowers trimming the veil is a nice touch. Unfortunately no name or address.
Happy wishes to the bridal couple – whoever they may be! I love her veil! The rest of her attire is a bit modern for me. The photo was taken by V. J. Barki in Wagner, South Dakota.
This is a non-traditional wedding – no white dress – but perhaps for the time it was the thing to be married in a suit. Nevertheless this bride is quite lovely. Surprise – I do have a name for this couple – Marvin and Edna Bauman Saenger, from Greenleaf, Wisconsin. The photo was made by Arthur Meumeyer in Brillon, Wisconsin.
Does anyone recognize any of the brides or grooms?
