This cabinet card appears to be a portrait of two wedding couples who participated in a double wedding. Of course it is also possible that just one of these couples are a bride and groom and the other are part of the wedding party.  All four subjects are adorned with flowers for the special occasion. The men have terrific mustaches. The photographer of this image is James Parrett whose studio was located in Wenona, Illinois. Parrett was born in Magnolia, Illinois in 1857. He came to Wenona with his parents in 1867. He learned photography in 1884 at a studio in Streator, Illinois. He opened a studio in Wenona in 1884. A year later he married Miss May Stoner of Wenona. While working as a photographer, Parrett was also a member of the school board for several years and served at least one term as an alderman. The Bulletin of Photography (1912) announced that Parrott had sold his studio to Clarence Jones.
