Hi all -

I was lucky enough to come into possession of the attached photo from ~1905 in Indura, Grodno, Poland (now Belarus). I know that the people circled are my family members (great-great grandparents and two of their children), but I know nothing else about the photo. Does anyone know anything about wedding traditions from that time in the region?  Are there any interesting details that capture anyone's eye?  I am so, so curious about this picture and the people in it!

Thanks so much!

I don't know if there's any significance but it's interesting that the females greatly outnumber the male adults in the picture. Great picture!
