Circa 1880’s Wedding Photo

Scan_Pic1731 1This magnificent wedding photo arrived in the mail just yesterday!  One of my Ebay finds!

The photo is in mint condition – someone took very good care of it through the years.  Our bride is simply beautiful!  She wears a highly decorated, dark colored dress.  The ruffles on the cuffs match the bodice, leading me to believe it is a blouse.  On the left side of the bodice is a beautiful piece of lace.  She wears her wedding ring on her left hand – in the European style – perhaps she is a recent emigrant.  The headdress for the veil is extremely detailed – and quite beautiful!  I’m not sure I’ve seen one more so!  A couple of the strands from it fall across her bodice, adding even more to the overall effect.   Her groom is handsome – and he does have a full mustache!  The right side of the photo is slightly faint at that point!

Our wedding photo was taken by Boeing Photography in Hustisford, Wisconsin.

  1. Boeing Photography was established in 1897 and ended in 1908, so this photo could not date to the 1880s.
