Chicago Wedding Photo

Scan089 1Another wedding photo to share with you today!  This one seems a little more casual – the groom is sitting comfortably in the chair and the bride has her hand resting on his shoulder.  Don’t you love the groom’s top hat and white gloves!

The bride’s dress is fantastic – and  her veil has a wonderful ‘old country’ look to it.  Her dress is heavily embellished with decorations.  And you can see their shiny wedding rings!

I would date this to the late 1880’s or early 1890’s.  What do you think?

Photo was taken by Hartley Portraits, 309 W. Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois.
