1920’s Wedding Photograph – Seeing Her Ankles, Oh My!

I haven’t shared a wedding photo in quite some time.  To tell you the truth, they are hard to come by.  When I first starting buying old photographs I found them in any antique shop.  I haven’t found a wedding photo in several years.

I love this one!  It is a roaring twenties wedding – the bride wearing a shorter dress style, showing those ankles and making her wedding her own.  Can’t say I really like the headdress, but this was all the rage at the time.  Bouquets were huge, with more greenery than flowers generally speaking.

Grooms usually wore a coat and tails, stiffly starched shirt and white tie.

I hope this couple was very happy.  The photo I have is an 8 x 10.  There is no photographer’s name.

A Lovely Bride

scan-1What a lovely bride!  How her groom’s heart must have swelled as he watched her walk down the aisle.  The lace on the edge of her veil reminds me of my own 35 years ago – but this wedding was many more years ago; I would guess this photograph is from the 1920’s.  She carries a most unusual bouquet, with tiny streamers falling from the flowers.

Chamblain Studios took the photo; it lists studios in Boston and New York.  In Boston it was located at 161 and 164A Tremont Street and was active in the 1920’s – I was right about the date of the photo!
