Charlie just has one button that is buttoned on his suit jacket, his boutineer is quite large.  Lena wears flowers in her bridal veil and also at her waist.  She clutched a prayer book in her right hand.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Charles (b. Jun 1866 in Wisconsin) married to a Mary Magdalena in the 1900 US census. The 1920 US census shows him as divorced. He worked at a brass mill and in 1910 as a wagon maker.

Mrs. Lena (b. abt 1864) was making dresses in 1924. They had at least 6 children.
