Wedding Wednesday - Elegant Monee, IL Couple

This cabinet card photograph of a very elegant, newly married couple was taken in Monee, IL by photographer F. W. Landen (I believe).  The photographer's name is embossed and very difficult to read.  I have had no luck finding a F. W. Landen or Londen or Lander, etc. using Google or by any other method.  

The bride's dress is quite lovely and her bridal bonnet and veil with the flowers and trailing vines were quite common in the early 1900's. Due to the sleeves on her dress I believe it could possible be the very late 1890's.  She is holding a large bouquet of flowers and the groom's boutonniere is very different from others I have seen - it is bigger and has a bow!  Their body language seems affectionate and both their wedding rings can be easily seen.

  1. I have a copy of this photo in my Grandparents collection. Where was this photo found. I also have a second pose of it. But no one seems to know who this couple is.
