Hats and flowers

There's a wedding theme this week at Sepia Saturday; this wedding group features lovely hats, elaborate flowers and a slightly bored-looking bridegroom.

How do you mean, SLIGHTLY bored? :)

Gorgeous photo!

Wendy said...

That "slightly bored" look must be universal among grooms.

I wonder if he made a good husband. He doesn't look very promising.

Kathy said...

Those bouquets are something with the trailing leaves. Hats are pretty special too. A great photo.

Jana Last said...

Beautiful hats and gorgeous flowers! And yes, a bored-looking bridegroom. Actually they all look a bit on the serious side don't they?

Kristin said...

Nobody there is looking overjoyed. Let's just assume that they are tired of sitting for pictures.

Me thinks the bridegroom bent his elbow a wee too much the night before.

What a wonderful cabinet card of a wedding card even though they do look a bit bored. The bride and her attendants are obviously sisters.

Amazing bouquets - and hats! I wonder if the groom had been making use of his hip flask? The little girl is a bit scary :-) Jo

It's the bridesmaid on the left that caught my attention. What caused her startled look?

Wonderful photograph - have you noticed the similarity between it and the wedding photo used as the heading for the Sepia Saturday Blog. Some styles, same fashions - wonderful.

This photo is fabulous - it could be a writing prompt in a classroom. Everyone seems to be thinking/looking at something different. I love it!

A marvelous photo that, as Kathy says, could tell a story. The groom has definitely opened the champagne early. But I love the wide-eyed flower girl's expression.

I love these old wedding photographs and especially the magnificent hats.
