One more newlywed couple by photographer R. Alex Wells of Higginsville, MO, this cabinet card features an attractive young couple both staring intently at the camera. Neither are smiling, but I don't sense that they are unhappy. The groom who is seated seems relaxed and the bride, standing no doubt to showcase her beautiful gown, exudes elegance. I find her dress quite unique from the soft, high neckline to the large bow at the waist to the slight tiers at the bottom of the skirt. The dress in its simplicity is simply breathtaking! I believe this photograph to have been taken late 1890's possibly 1896 - 1898.
