I contacted one of Helen's sons and he contacted his sister and within a few days I had a copy of the picture. I love this picture. I love the veil, the dress and the flowers. I think it is a true depiction of the 1920's fashion.
Leona Dollaway, the daughter of Willis G. Dollaway and Francis Denny Dollaway, married Bertrand Francis Corcoran, the son of Timothy Corcoran and Helen Schmitt Corcoran on 3 June 1925 at St. Andrew's Cathedral, Grand Rapids, Kent, Michigan. Leona was 20 years old and Bert was 22 years old.
The marriage record of Bert and Leona Corcoran states that Frances Freel and Louise Margold were witnesses. My mother-in-law believes that is who is in the picture with them.
