When Carole Lombard married William Powell in 1931, her brothers Frederic and Stuart Peters attended the ceremony; a year later, when Stuart got hitched, the Powells returned the favor. On the snipe, this Paramount photo, taken by Irving Lippman, identifies all the parties:

I’m sure some of you with a geneaology background can fill me in on whether Stuart and Rosemary had any children; I do know that Stuart, like Frederic and Carole as well as their mother, Elizabeth Peters, is at Forest Lawn:
