This is a cabinet card from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
We still have the wedding bonnet with it’s tendril of greenery and or flowers. Today we have a different color dress. Was it green or blue gray? It has some ruching on the bodice and beautiful lace, and she is showing off her ring..too bad she didn’t grab his arm! She looks very young.
The photographer was O E Flaten, he came to Moorhead Minnesota in 1880 and opened up a photography studio with his brother Gilbert E Flaten. His brother went over to Fargo in 1888 or 1889. Both of the Flaten boys were prolific photographers.
I think that this photo was taken in the mid 1890’s (1894, 1895, 1896).
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
