Photo Number 907

This is a wedding photograph from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Wedding photo Friend or relative of Elmer Westling  DL Antiques
The bride wears a wedding bonnet that is decorated with flowers. she also has a bouquet of flowers in her lap.  Her dress seems shorter than most..and her shoes look to be regular shoes…they look like flats with square bows and a strap. The groom looks to be wearing a suit with a white bowtie..he is sitting quite casually. He has a single rose boutonniere.

I will guess that this photo was taken in the 1910’s.

Wedding photo Friend or relative of Elmer Westling  DL Antiques back
The photo is marked Mr. Elmer Westling.  Quite some time ago I returned some photos that were marked the same way to a relative of his.  I will have to find time to go back through my emails and figure it all out.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update:  Check out Full Circle 39 for more Elmer Westling photos. I will try to contact Annette again.


  1. Very nice pic. Her shoes do look a little out of place - maybe her feet hurt!!!

  2. The casualness is fascinating. They look like they're waiting for the photographer to get their act together and unaware he's already taken the shot. I don't think I've ever seen one of these old wedding portraits this relaxed.
