What a great photo! Is the marriage license photo taken of the actual document? There is something special about seeing the real thing, versus a scan.
Thanks, Heather, and yes, it is the real deal. I was able to go to the courthouse in Marion, Kansas and look at the old book. There is something special about being able to pour over these old books in person. And the old courthouses are so interesting. They are so serious looking in this picture but their hairdos say it all -- it was a special day!
