This is a cabinet card from the third Antique Shop in Dorset, Minnesota.
T.J. Burfield was a photographer in Waconia, Minnesota in 1898 and 1899 according to the database at the Minnesota Historical Society. I am a frequent visitor to their website to find info on photographers.
Would you look at that bouquet of flowers..it is huge. I can see some type of Mums and Hydrangea..which suggest to me that this couple was married in early September, because that is when Mums and Hydrangeas would be blooming nicely in Minnesota. They are wearing matching corsages, Gardenias maybe?
The brides dress is not white. I always like to imagine these dresses in color. (I think this one is pale green.) The beautiful lace trim is white. Her bonnet seems to have some flowers in it, she must not have liked the dangly greens and flowers in her wedding bonnet that was so popular during this time period.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
