Ridgewood Lodge #1455 Wedding
The hair styles look like the forties to me. Maybe a war bride; one of the many couples who rushed through weddings when death in combat was a real possibility. My guess is that the bride is throwing the bouquet, even though it can't be seen in this photo. The scanning of these old photos require a minuscule cropping on the edges of the image. I've lost just enough that the top of the bulletin board in the background was lost. In the original it reads, "Ridgewood Lodge, No. 1455." A quick Google search came up with Elks Lodge 1455, Ridgewood, New Jersey.
