Description Black and white photographic portrait of Bernice Wolf and Jerome Sand with their bridal party. There are nine people in the photo with the bride and groom in the center. Bernice is wearing a long white gown. The bodice is ivory embroidered satin with a scalloped neckline, net yoke, and long sleeves. There is a satin peplum attached to the bottom of the bodice. The skirt is net which extends into a long train that is edged in thin lace. She is also wearing a fingertip veil edged in lace that matches the train. The veil is held in place by a crown of orange blossoms. Jerome is standing beside Bernice on the left. He is wearing a brown suit with a double-breast six button jacket, hand painted necktie, and white carnation boutonniere. The three bridesmaids are wearing matching taffeta dresses with puff sleeves, high neckline, and net overskirt. They are also wearing headpieces of ruffled net. The flower girl is wearing a dress in a similar style to the bridesmaids with a matching headpiece. The photo was taken in the photographer's studio in Chaska. The wall behind them is mottled with large ironwork ornamental pieces hung on either side of an arched doorway. The doorway is obstructed by a billowing curtain. The group is standing on a large rug with repeating diamond patterns. The couple was married on June 5, 1946 at St. Joseph's Church in Jordan.
