This is the wedding photo of my husband’s paternal grandparents, Ed Schmidt and Hazel Carpenter, married on September 28,1914. Lawrence Welk grew up with the bride and groom and played at their wedding. Ed’s brother, Homer, was a member of Welk’s band and played the drums. He later had his own band, called the Bohemian Band, but unfortunately, he never made it as big as Lawrence Welk.
