This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Parkers Prairie Minnesota.

Wedding photo New Paynesville from Parkers Prairie

Lindquist was the photographer in New Paynesville, Minn

The Minnesota Historical Society shows A.L. Lindquist working as a photographer in 1894-1900 and then again in 1904.  Photographers often took time away from photography to work at other jobs.

Wedding photo New Paynesville from Parkers Prairie

The groom is wearing a cut away coat and flowers,  the bride is wearing a gown of some color, with a huge white bow and a wedding bonnet adorned with some white flowers.  She carries a sprig of flowers in her fingerless gloved hand.  The gown has very large upper sleeves popular around 1895.

Thanks for stopping by.
