This photograph is a portrait of a bride and groom posing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The bride is holding a bouquet of flowers and appears to have flowers pinned to the front of her dress as well as to her shoulders. Perhaps a visitor to this site knows  if such pinnings were the practice of that era.  The bride, in a high collar gown,  is also wearing flowers in her hair and white gloves. The groom looks dapper in his three-piece suit. Note that the ends of his mustache curve upwards. The photographer is Charles Brodesser (1857- ?) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Brodesser was born in Germany and emigrated to the United States in 1872. He settled in Milwaukee in 1877. Further biographical information about Brodesser has not yet been found.
