Cover of book, To Love & To Cherish

Brides Remembered

This rare and wonderful book presents a panoramic and lively picture of what courtship, marriage and married life was like for women across the American continent during the nineteenth century. Intimately illustrated with early photos and daguerreotypes, the text sparkles with the stories of hundreds of brides, their hopes, aspirations, sorrows, triumphs and loves.

Filled with poignant and often hilarious anecdotes, this remarkable text is illustrated with lush full-color photos of many bridal friendship quilt and wedding gowns. The book abounds with complete descriptions and explanations of the many bridal traditions and customs we take so for granted today. Altogether this is an astonishingly comprehensive and beautiful book.

This book focuses on the following family surnames: Nichols, Golden, Howard, Taylor, Dunsmoor, Spear, Place, Leonard, Hastings, McElroy, Rockwell, Abbott, Miner, Higggins, Fisher, Sawyer, Sumner, Mather, Steel and Wait.

To Love & To Cherish is a stunning present from an extraordinarily gifted author. It makes a gift any woman will cherish.

Includes patterns and complete instructions for three antique bridal friendship quilts.
