Three months of planning. Six months of sewing. Cross-country trips with fittings by webcam. "By Candlelight: Measured Twice, Worn Once," chronicles one mother's journey to make her daughter's wedding gown, a long-lost tradition.
Written and photographed by her daughter, and featuring wedding day photographs by photographer Samuel LaHoz, "By Candlelight" is a keepsake that takes readers behind-the-scenes of the making of a couture wedding gown.
It also represents the creative energy of a family and the love and support between a mother and daughter. Thanks for making it all possible, Mom.
