This is a marriage record of my great-great-grandfather's marriage prior to his marrying my great-great-grandmother. (I'm separately submitting a translation request for this bride's later death record to see what I can learn.)

I would love a full translation, please, so that I may study each detail. Thanks so much--I realize that these marriage records are about 2.5x the lengths of the others!
