I'm guessing the female parent is Romanze. The male parent is apparently tall, double, and can pass on that unusual petal architecture. There are a few lines that do that, mostly from Meidiland breeding. The unusual linear foliage (like spears) is often seen in lines descending from roses like Uwe Seeler and Romanze.

This is an incredibly beautiful rose with glossy, lush foliage. The canes are thick, woody at the base and stronger than I think any of my other roses. It came through last winter pretty well to about eight inches to a foot of nice wood. It is very vigorous and forms a 3'x3' bush. It does seem to take forever for a bud to mature but that means the blooms last for a very, very long time both on the bush and cut. One of my bouquets lasted eight or nine days fading to an attractive antique color. The blooms are a reliably monstrous, petal-packed, two-tonal pink held on strong stems. To my disappointment, I can't detect any fragrance on my two-year old bush. Maybe it needs more time? Maybe my nose isn't very open-minded? Otherwise, it is simply an amazing rose that is super easy to grow. Did I mention this is one of the few roses I have with no blackspot? (zone 5a)

I planted two 'Wedding Bells' roses from Palatine in early spring, 2017. They are grafted to multiflora stock. The foliage was great all season, and like you, I saw no black spot or mildew. I agree with you about the absence of fragance. The blooms were lovely in June, but by August, when daytime temperatures were reaching 90 degrees F, all blooms had unsightly brown edges. Blooms were attractive again in September.
