Gilbert and Estelle’s Wedding

Gilbert Ernest Borreson and Dora Estelle Tollfeson were married June 25, 1932, in the bride’s home church in Belgrade, Minnesota. He was 29 years old and she 30. Thanks to their daughter Marcia for sending me the photo.

Marcia adds that she thinks this photograph of her parents was taken on Estelle’s home farm outside Belgrade. One year earlier, July 12, 1931, Gilbert had been ordained into the Christian ministry at his home congregation in Pigeon Falls. If I receive or find other information on the wedding, I’ll include it later. Sometimes, when I see beautiful photos like this one, I almost forget that these were the years of the Great Depression.
