Spotlight Sunday: Eleven Embers
Candles add so much elegance to a wedding. Whether it's your ceremony or reception the soft glow from a timeless decor can finish your design flawlessly. The problem with candles is that there are so many options! Who would have thought- any shape, size or color you need is available? The hardest decision you will have to make is which design to go with. Most times, couples worry about their venue's regulations on open flames - and take it from us your big day is the last place for a fire. Finding the perfectly sized hurricane, or a battery operated option is not only time consuming but costly. If you've met our team or read our previous posts - you know we have a heart for helping couples. So when we say we are so excited to introduce this vendor let me tell you, we are VERY excited.
Eleven Embers is a brand new company that specializes in illuminating events with candle decor. The owner has worked in the wedding & event industry for years and is one of the most down to earth, sweetest women you will meet. She founded Eleven Ember's with the intention of filling a much needed specialty area for brides and clients in the DFW area. Eleven Ember's line of candles ranges from pillars and tapers to floating votives, and even slow flicker options. Not only does she provide the candles but the finishing touches such as tall gorgeous candelabras.
One of our absolute favorite trends & statements you can easily make with candle decor is utilizing them in along the ceremony aisle. A simple white pillar within a glass hurricane, staggered and at varying heights is an elegant and timeless statement to make. Easily dressed up and personalized with the addition of greenery or a floral arrangement there won't be a guest not oohing and ahhing these elegant features!
