Wedding Wednesday - 1890's Higginsville, MO Couple
This attractive young couple from Higginsville, Missouri posed for their wedding photograph for photographer R. Alex Wells in the 1890's. The unidentified couple seem happy and relaxed, and are both wearing wedding rings. I'm not sure why the photographer posed them the way he did, separated by a small table with a plant, but it certainly showcased the bride's lovely figure and beautiful white wedding gown and headdress. She is truly made a serene, lovely bride.
I had no luck finding any information on the photographer, R. Alex Wells, although there are a few of his photographs to be found on Google.
