    What wonderful photographs. The happy families are especially charming. Some of those dresses took my breath away. I’m not so sure the man in #4 is the groom. Since she has her face veiled, I suspect he’s the father of the bride, which would account for his worried look. Most fathers look pretty grim right before they walk their babies down the aisle. Thanks to whomever shared this lovely memorabilia.

    By the way, I’m a first visitor to your site brought by a link. It’s very nice. Best of success to you.

    The pictures are beautiful, but Picture #4 that is not the groom, it is obvious that is her father walking with his daughter into the church. You can tell because her veil is still covering her face, the groom is the one to lift her veil.
