1. This bride and her wedding party are absolutely stunning. They are gracefully synchronized and look like they were prepared for many years of happiness to come!old-wedding

2. This newly-wed couple is so sophisticated as they take their portrait that portrays a lifetime of love, commitment, and dedication. Look at that train and huge bouquet! Not to mention the dapper young gentleman in his classic top hat.


3. Oh the beauty! This mature couple appears to be deeply in love as they take this lovely picture with such beautiful scenery. The bride’s lace gown and the groom’s spiffy gloves are complimented well by the nature in the background as they display such natural love.


4. Wow! Look at this breath-taking bride accompanied by her equally breath-taking groom. Her look is as incredible as it gets. Look at those detailed sleeves and that skirt! Not to mention the groom’s nice striped tie and full corsage.


5. Smiles are signs of love! This huge wedding party involves the whole family and with the faces here, I know this family only grew stronger over the years. And my, look at those little girls sitting on the bride’s voluminous train! What a wonderful picture.


6. The way he looks at her! What love displayed here not only in the look, but the action of this photograph. This love is undeniably gorgeous, but I mean, their attire is as well! Such a spruced, young couple.

7. Once a seed is planted and well taken care of it grow! Look at all of the growth in this particular photo. The plants work as great props for this amazing picture of the bride in her magnificent gown with so much flow, and the groom with his clean hat positioned perfectly over his palm.


8. This single portrait of this bride makes me speechless! The way that her bouquet is so big and lively, her train covering the floor, her veil long attached to that pretty tiara, even her head tilt is soo alluring. The aesthetics of this portrait is truly present. What a lucky groom!


9. Fun, fresh, and frisky! Doesn’t it just melt our hearts to see young, pure love? This groom and his bride display a lot of personality as they taste their lovely three tier cake. By looking at this photo, we can see that were truly happy and genuinely in love.


10. Pictured here is not only a new, beautiful family, but a family which appears to have a strong foundation for generations to come. The magic of this photo is in the modesty of each member’s face and everyone is stunning!

    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.
