Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.
I’ve decided to stay with the obvious theme of weddings this week. Below is a photo of my great-aunt Helen Albertina Gilberg and Nils Gustav Nilsson on their wedding day.

Helen was a sister of my paternal grandmother, Ingrid Anna Gilberg. I first introduced you to my Grandma Ingrid in my previous posts Wedding Wednesday - Arthur Harry Iverson and Ingrid Anna Gilberg and Matrilineal Monday: Flour Sack Dresses–Ingrid Anna Gilberg.
If you read the Flour Sack Dresses post, you saw that Helen was one of nine girls born to Carl and Hilda Gilberg. There was a son born to them as well, but he passed away at only 14 months of age.
Helen and Nils, who went by Gus, were married in Los Angeles, California on June 30, 1934. I’m not sure why my Grandmother Ingrid wrote 3 March 1934 underneath the photo. That actually wasn’t the correct date according to Nils Gustav Nilsson’s Petition for Naturalization.
Aren't they a handsome couple? Don't you just love her dress and veil? And look at Nils holding his white gloves. How elegant!
