- Wedding: August 2012
My MIL is very much into geneology and they make vacations out of looking for old headstones of relatives who have passed.
This photo is of her Swedish grandmother and grandfather Victor and Mina (so my H’s great-grandparents). They were married in Washington state in 1909. The marriage license is all in Swedish! On her hand there were two very wide rings and a bangle type bracelet.
How ornate! (the license was in a frame, so I tried to get a shot with the least amount of glare.)
The lace and the blue piece of fabric are fragments of her actual wedding gown. The blue part is the cuff of the dress – note the pleating and pointed lace trim. There was a hook and eye at the wrist area. The lace piece was from the neck area of the blouse. The gown was actually two pieces – a skirt and a blouse.
And for fun – look out aged they look after one kid. LOL
