Grandma and Grandpa PELTON’s Wedding

Edna Frances FLEISCHHAUER and Charles Lester Isaac PELTON were married on July 2, 1938. I have quite a few photos from their wedding and I wanted to share them! When my grandmother passed away back in 1995 my Mom and I took home a beautiful cedar chest filled with some of her things. Included in this chest was her wedding dress – all of it – in beautiful yet faded condition. I always thought she looked like maybe a size 10 or 11 in her photos (if not a little bigger) but her dress was at least a size 8 – so I was a little off. It’s beautiful! All that is missing is her veil.
