Winter Weddings

In the chilly month of January, what's nicer than looking forward to a wedding?  January is a time many of us envision ourselves snuggled in a warm cocoon of fuzziness with hot chocolate and a good book.  Preferably next to a crackling fire.

Anticipating an event so joyous as a wedding was a little like comfort food for the soul for me, this past weekend.  With hope for the first real snowfall of the season, it was still a quintessential Minnesota winter wedding.  Here's a peek at what we gave, a gift basket filled with Minnesota handmade goodies.  The wine and glasses are from Northern Vineyards located in Stillwater, MN.  I was so happy when I found these because I knew they would be perfect to nestle alongside our Minnesota Ladyslipper Soap.

On the other end of the spectrum is a January wedding on a tropical beach.  Imagine a wedding on Waimanalo Beach in Hawaii!  Shown below are a few photos of the lip balms, soaps, and lotions we created especially for Hannah & John and their Hawaiian Wedding.

Although Hannah has been living in Phoenix for a while, she's originally from Minnesota.  Her favorite soap from All Things Herbal is our Lakeshore Waves bar.  With a wave logo sent from Hannah, we were able to create a custom label to go with her favorite scent.  To help Hannah & John welcome and pamper their wedding guests, we made sets of soaps, lotions, and lip balms for them to put in hospitality baskets in each of the cabins along Waimanalo Beach.


Imagine sand under your feet instead of snow!  Winter weddings ~ magical either way.  If you'd like to see more custom wedding and shower soaps I've designed in the past, check them out here.
