[Wedding portrait of Louis J. Maresh and Louise Mary Zapalac]

Date: 1910
Creator: unknown
Description: Wedding portrait of Louis J. Maresh and Louise Mary Zapalac, 1910. Louis is wearing a dark suit with white shirt and tie. He has a flower pinned on his right lapel. He is holding Louise's hand in his right hand. Louise is wearing a white blouse with shirring at top and lace insets. The belted waist leads to the skirt which begins pleating at midway point of floor length. Bows and lace accent the pleating. Her veil has white floral at top and tulle falls to floor behind her. Zapalac designed and sewed wedding dresses as a young woman. Profits from her work reverted to her parents' store. Zapalac received portraits of the couple in their ensembles as her part of the payment. The Maresh family lived in Sealy until 1924, when they moved to FBC and bought a farm at the intersection of Harlem and Madden Roads (north of the prison farm). Scanned image is of the copy.
