This is a wedding photo from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. It is a cabinet card.
Grossfield was only in Rushford, Minnesota in the years 1884 and 1885. So those are the years we will pick for these photos. The bride has chosen a wedding bonnet and it seems to have some sort of tendrils from the piece on top of her head flowing on her left shoulder. The wedding bonnet seems almost train like. This dress could have had a bustle..I can almost see one back there but it may just be the pleats in her dress. I wonder what color her dress was..I am seeing a soft chocolate brown..trimmed in black velvet.. how about you? The groom just has his top button buttoned..I have read that this is common in the late 1870’s to the early 1880’s. So it very well could be a photo from 1884 or 1885.
It is also interesting to note that her ring is on the right hand but the wrong finger..perhaps it was too large.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
