Turn of the century wedding, couples, and portraiture

Turn of the century wedding, couples, and portraiture
This entry is part 3 of 20 in the series Cabinet Cards

I found these old turn of the century wedding photos especially fascinating, especially the girl in the black wedding dress that looks quite corseted. I wish I knew more about turn of the century fashions, because I am guessing that the black would be from the 1890s and the white dresses from more about 1910s? Not sure, feel free to comment if you know.

This is my last set of old photo scans for 2011! Now I’m finally finished with posting them. Hopefully I can scan more of these turn of the century photos in 2012, because it’s fun to look at other people’s old family photos… but if not, I still have a ton of old slides to scan when I’m needing a mental break from webdesign and whatnot.
