Vogue Candles: An Eco-Friendly Way to Add Candlelit Ambiance to your Wedding
Vogue Candles offers a unique and sustainable option for couples who want to incorporate what owner and creative designer Mahan London calls the “emotional ambiance” of candlelight into their wedding day. The brand has emerged as part of a new class of businesses that are meeting the growing demand for eco-friendly wedding-day designs. Instead of petroleum-based wax, Vogue candles are crafted from loose, plant-based granules, which are designed to be portable and reusable while creating a clean, residue-free and odorless atmosphere for guests to enjoy. The proprietary granules can be poured into vessels ranging from 4 to 47 inches tall, and are paired with the company’s replaceable wick, which lasts for as long as 14 hours. Once the wick has burned down, it can be removed and replaced with another, making this invention a truly sustainable choice. The Southern California company also offers innovative candlelight staging services and custom rentals for weddings of any size and at any location. Convenient packages include design, vases, delivery, installation and pickup. Says London, “Vogue Candles are designed to bring a special blessing to your guests, your venue and your wedding day.”
Deborah James of Bella Vita Events created a modern fairy-tale wedding by gilding the ceremony and reception with candles, orchids and glamorous Art Deco touches. The ceremony took place underneath Ojai Valley Inn’s 200-year-old oak tree, which was embellished with strings of crystals and clusters of chandeliers by Belle of the Ball Designs. Romantic candlelight illuminated both settings, from the flickering Vogue candles lining the ceremony aisle to the abundance of candles and cascading florals adorning the reception’s majestic sweetheart table.
