Context:
Bride's name was Anna Helms. Last name here is Helms, but I can't make out the first names. Wedding was in Michigan 1872. One name looks like Victory. Would that be a man's name? the other name looks like Clarifsa. Does it look like something else that's more... name-y?

from this marriage record:
Michigan, Marriage Records, 1867-1952

It looks like Clarissa and Victory. Perhaps a brother and sister in law?
