I would have guessed by the brides gown that this photo was taken a little earlier around 1895, simply from the size of her sleeves.  The bride wears a gown trimmed with lace at the neckline and sleeves, the bodice sports a bow. Her bridal bonnet is floor length and the headpiece seems to have flowers that have escaped in tendrils.  The groom wears a cutaway jacket, a white bow tie and a corsage.  You can also see the posing stand behind his left foot.
