Romantic Wedding

On a recent visit to to the coastal town of Madison, Connecticut I spotted an interesting window display set up by the Madison Historical Society for Valentine's Day. The item that caught my eye, was this beautiful wedding gown from 1865. It doesn't say who wore the gown, but it is excellent condition.

The satin shoes date from 1845, so were probably not the ones worn by the bride, but work well with the gown in the display.

 The train of the gown is interesting for the shape of the edge and every one of the blocks is piped.

This is the detail of the lace front panel.  Still in very good condition.
