Streator weddings

What it is:

Two cabinet cards measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches each.

What I know about it:

Same photographer: Clark, 201-203 Main Street, Streator, Ills. Otherwise undated and unidentified.

Comments:

I believe these are wedding photos, though I’m not 100% certain, so comments are welcome.  The veil on the woman on the right is a clue, plus the fact that all four people are wearing corsages.  Otherwise they differ from what we consider standard wedding portraiture today in the apparent lack of physical affection (except for the token hand on the shoulder) and the seeming lack of joy (though the guy on the right seems at least pleased).  The fact that they are from the same photographer makes it interesting to compare and contrast (mostly compare, frankly).
