Wedding Wednesday: Decorated with Flowers

Collection of the author
A. M.Estrella of Fall River, Massachusetts took this photograph in the first decade of the twentieth century. There is something really charming about the enhancements on this image. The pink flowers with green leaves were stamped on the image with ink. 

The bride wears a lovely striped silk dress with a full veil.  Her groom holds a pair of gloves in his hands.  Could the couple have requested this all over green and red pattern or was this a specialty of the photographer?  I'm looking for other examples of his work.
