Photo Number 563

This is a photograph from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.  I laughed out loud when I saw it, and could not resist buying it. This photo was in amongst a whole group of photos that were haphazardly cut out of their original framing or matting, any photographer info that was on the cardstock was cut away.

Growing Greens Girl Wedding Unknown Photog DL Antiques This bride took the dangly greens on her wedding bonnet to a whole new level.  She is carrying roses tied with a huge white ribbon and his boutonniere matches her bouquet.  Her dress is white, with some ornate beadwork along the bottom. The bodice of the dress has the “pigeon breast puffed out look” that was popular from 1900 to around 1910.

The groom looks quite dapper. I am sure his hair style and his moustache were quite fashionable in his day.  The tips of his shoes are very shiny.  His bow tie is really small.

The couple is posing on a wild animal hide..I would guess it is a wolf.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. I also giggled when I saw the tendrels

  2. It's so neat to look at theses and see the style of the day and what was considered fashionable during any given time frame.

  3. "Help my greens are taking over" well just joking.

    They always look so serious.

  4. She's a very pretty bride though, underneath all that greenery!

  5. I wonder if she was going for the "very fertile" look?! That is the most extreme I have ever seen!

  6. I love the "whowerethey" comment. She looks a bit like a banister at Christmas. I'm not sure his hair do was ever in style, but he was sporting it quite well. She is gorgeous without all the "stuff" distracting us.

  7. She looks like she brought her own arbor and he looks like he's already been hit by the frying pan thus giving him that stylish flat head.
