(almost) Wordless Wednesday

Wedding: 1930



This is my Grandma Aeline on her wedding day. The year was 1930, her dress was pale blue, she was 27 years old and only weighed 98 pounds! She passed away in 1992 and this is the only picture I have every seen of her on her wedding day. I wish I could see the colors of that bouquet!

More stunning photos can be found here.
