Seemds like the men are wearing red bow ties!

The photo is marked on the back June 3, 1951.  If they knew the date they knew the people but didn’t write that part down.

It looks like they really decorated that old church basement for their reception!

Thanks for stopping by.

wedding Group Pequot Lakes ant

A wedding group probably from the 1940’s or early 1950’s.

The little girl on the right seems out of place…she doesn’t match anyone…perhaps she is someones little sister who just wanted to be in the photograph.

From the mans double breasted pin stripe suit I will guess this is a photo from the late 1940’s.  It looks like they just came down the steps of the church.

And her husband

Frithjof Hugo Carlson Wathne (March 16, 1912 in Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway - February 9, 2002 in ?)
