This is the first in a series of photos from the weddings of two sisters. They look so much alike that first I thought they might be twins, but were actually born a year apart. The younger sister, June, and her husband, Jack, were married in May of 1947 in Lansing, Michigan. She’s wearing a tailored bridal suit so common to brides of the 1940s. Obviously this was a trend necessitated by the scarcity and expense of material for wedding gowns during (and in this case just post) WWII, but I quite like to see these smart and sophisticated looking brides.
Sister Inez’s wedding from the 1950s will be coming soon!
