Wedding Photos and History Sought

Wedding photos and history sought

The Dassel Area Historical Society is planning a wedding exhibit titled Love’s Labor: the Traditions of Weddings and Courtship.

Plans include information about Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish traditional courtship customs. Also wedding traditions from the 1900 to 2016 will be presented in text, photos, documents, clothing and objects.

The DAHS invites area residents and former residents to submit a wedding photo which could be scanned and used in the exhibit.  Please include with the photo names, date, location, and any interesting stories about your, or your family member’s, wedding day. If you have wedding clothing that you would consider loaning for the exhibit, indicate that as well.

Deadline for submitting is Thursday, Mar. 23.

Also include your contact information (phone number, email).

Questions may be directed to Carolyn Holje, 320.275.3077.
