Wedding Belles: A Beautiful Wedding Picture

As you may or may not remember, I wrote about the Henry's in my family that had married women from Canada last year, and a few weeks ago, I found this photograph of one of the Henry's weddings at my grandma's house. This photograph happens to be of the marriage of Henry Klippel to his second wife, Mary Oman, and was taken in Cleveland, Ohio in 1908. Isn't this a beautiful photograph? I am amazed at the quality of this old photograph, and as soon as I saw the picture, I fell in love with it. To me, this picture is very special, and I cannot get over how beautiful it is. I hope you enjoy this photograph as well. Enjoy!

I like the touch that they both had some kind of leaf with a flower pinned to their clothing; I wonder if there was a particular significance to this?

Wonderful picture. You are lucky to have it.

I love the picture, too! Do you think this was a first marriage for them or maybe a redo of their vows? Do you think that did that sort of thing back then.
