Wedding Wednesday - 1920's (Art Deco Era) Iowa Matrimonial Couple, Bride in Satin, Lace & Pearls

This week's bride and groom are unidentified, but what a beautiful couple they are and the presentation is gorgeous.  The photograph is housed in a 7" x 10" cardboard folder and the frame around it has a lovely Art Deco feel with the brownish-green marbling and gold inlay.

The groom is dressed simply and elegantly in his tuxedo; the bride is breathtaking in her satin dress with the most unusual headdress and veil with large rosettes. She is wearing a long strand of pearls and is holding what appears to be a white bible or prayer book.

Almost impossible to see, but just below the first gold inlay frame is the photographer's name, McIntire Studio, Ft. Madison, Ia.


  1. That headdress has a Russian look to it.

    1. Thank you, that's it! I couldn't quite put my finger on what that headdress quite reminded me of. At first I kept thinking of the Statue of Liberty! LOL! But, it does have a Russian look.

  2. Beautiful headdress..very unusual! :)

  3. What a beautiful photo. Such a shame that it doesn't take pride of place in someone's home.
