Unknown Wedding Party 1880's, Mapleton, Iowa

The back reads:
"Grandma and Grandpa's wedding picture
Aunt Til- Grandma's sister
Uncle John- Grandpa's brother"

This wedding photo looks to be from the 1880's. The bride is wearing a dark, possibly brown dress, which was cheaper and more practical than a white dress. In her hair she is wearing a crown of flowers with long, trailing vines, which were very popular at this time and into the early 1900's. Unfortunately, no last names are given so I can't find out who they are!

If you know who these folks may be, let us know in the comments!
