Emma De Keyser

Return to Walter & Josephine De KeyserWalter_%26_Josephine_Contents.htmlshapeimage_7_link_0

Standing (left to right):  Emma Dury, a niece of Emma De Keyser (but about the same age) and daughter of her older sister, Alice (De Keyser) Dury; Edmond De Keyser, Emma’s brother; and Charles Wilbur Aldrich, the proud groom.  Note Emma Dury’s lovely organdy dress trimmed with an abundance of lace and ruffles.  She wears a horseshoe pin at the neckline and several roses pinned to the yoke line.  The men both have detachable high starched collars and bow ties with stems of roses and ferns just like the women.  This must have been before the time when boutonnieres became popular for men.

Sitting: The bride, Emma De Keyser Aldrich sits in her graceful Gibson Girl style wedding gown with ruffled bodice and long, gathered sleeves.  Her lovely rose and carnation bridal bouquet is tied with a delicate ribbon.  She looks like a queen sitting on a throne.
