Wedding Party of Four

Black-and-white photograph of four brown-skinned figures. A woman in a white wedding dress and veil is seated in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers. She is flanked by two standing men wearing tuxedos, and one standing woman who wears an elaborate dress and holding flowers. The painted backdrop is a faux classical scene, with an arch and a fake window.
