Description

A film clip showing the aerial wedding of Etta Olson and Roy S. Oberg of New Sweden on June 5, 1930. The couple flew out of the Caribou airport, were married in the air and returned to greet friends on the ground. After they landed, Frances J. Bragdon and George H. Cone of Ashland took off for their aerial wedding. The couples shared a pre-wedding parade from downtown Caribou to the airport. The title on the film identifies the bride as Etta Olson while Maine marriage records list her name as "Anna."
