These are digital reproductions of a group of images held in the private collection of George Harb.

These images were taken at the marriage of Therese (George's sister) and Elias Giacaman in the 1950s. Weddings in Bethlehem used to be large affairs, sometimes inviting up to 500 guests. This event took place in the mid to late 1950s, as indicated by style of dress. Women's fashions were defined by narrow and soft shoulders, a tight bodice which would pull in the natural waist or shape it slightly higher and a very full or a tight sheath skirt. Men would wear suits that dropped straight to the hip hitting around mid-thigh. Most suits were single-breasted with long, wide lapels, and fastened up the front with two or three buttons sitting low, exposing a long necktie.

These images are part of the George Harb Photos collection, within the George Harb project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
