Wedding Wednesday - Beautiful (Ontario?) Bride

Unknown bride, possibly from Ontario, Canada.  On the lower right hand side it appears to say "DeLaFranirr."  I Googled this and found a mention of a Charles DeLaFranier, Photographer in Tavistock, Ontario around 1903.  No further information found.

**UPDATE:  There was a Charles Delafranier in the 1901 Canada Census, District of Perth, City of Stratford, Ontario.  He was 38 years old, born 1 Nov 1862 in Ontario, French Canadian, Occupation Carpenter, married to Ellen.  They had four children at the time, Mary E. age 12, Peter A. age 19, Joseph N. age 7, William A. age 5 and Lawrence age 3.  I found a burial record at the Avondale Cemetery, St. Patrick Section in the City of Stratford for a Charles E. DeLaFranier interment date 12 July 1933.

Another mention was found on the website of "Photographers of Ontario" listing a Charles DeLaFranier born Nov 1, 196? in business Nov 1903 in Stratford.  According to an ad which was placed in a local newspaper at the time Mr. DeLafranier of Stratford who recently sold his business has opened the Tavistock Photo Studio taking over the unoccupied photo studio in town.  He was offering $3.50 photos for $2.50 for thirty days.*
