You know how sometimes the best ideas come to you right when you’re about to fall asleep? It was one of those nights when I was attempting to mentally check off the wedding to-do list, fretting a bit about my big idea for a favor for our guests. Yup, the time was quickly approaching and my grand idea to make little beeswax candles was starting to seem a bit ambitious. I’d remembered earlier that day I’d come across some old branches my dad had cut off from a type of evergreen tree. Thinking of our earthy, simple wedding, I wondered what I could use them for. Yes! That was it! Those would be a little token of our day our friends + family could take home with them. The textures + patterns of the cut wood had a beautiful look we knew would work just right. So Matt did the cutting + drilling and I did the sanding to get them ready. Just what we needed, just in time.
