Wedding Photo

I found this great wedding photo several years ago at an antique mall in Mesa.  It even had the original invitation attached to the back of the picture.

I removed the photo from the frame and scanned it into my computer.
 Here is the actual framed piece.  Isn't that frame beautiful??  Original convex glass is there.

Here is the wedding invitation that was attached to the back of the picture. 
This is darker than it actually is.  But very pretty.  Heavily embossed.  You flip up the heart in the center to open it up to this:

I know you can't see the full image.  But if you click on it, it will enlarge enough for you to read that the wedding took place on July 30, 1927.  This picture hangs on the wall in my studio.

Great photo, Judy. I love those convex glass frames. My grandparents had a few and they always fascinated me. I thought you might like to know a bit more about your bride so I found her obituary for you:
