Did you catch us this fall in The Improper Bostonian? We were thrilled to have our “Labor of Love” story featured alongside several other creative Boston couples who work together in the wedding industry. It’s great to be in the company of such talented, hardworking folks here in the Boston area. You can read the full article here.
In the spirit of local love, we’re sharing some of our favorite unique Boston wedding favors with you this month. These handcrafted products will add plenty of local flavor to your wedding day, bridal shower, or holiday party. And it doesn’t get more local than this: some of the people behind these unique Boston wedding favors have been our ring customers and others live right down the street!
Apotheker’s Kitchen features “Bee Sweetened Goods”. Russ and Shari Apotheker work out of Crop Circle Kitchen in Dorchester, MA to make their small-batch, honey-sweetened chocolate bars and marshmallow treats. Mint and Spicy Triple Pepper are our favorites!
The Bees Waxy Knees is an all-natural beeswax candle and lip balm company based in Newton, MA. We were delighted to meet owner Meg when she and her fiance came to us for the groom’s mokume wedding ring. Meg creates creative candles and lip balms using high-quality, natural beeswax from her own hives. We’ve been hooked on her lip balms ever since!
Take our word for it! McCrea’s Candies makes the most amazing, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth caramels. Jason McCrea and his wife Kate are based in Hyde Park, MA and create unique flavors including black lava salt and Irish coffee. With a background in chemistry, Jason has got his caramels down to a science!
Boston-based theUncommonGreen produces map-happy gifts (pint glasses, phone cases, and more) with an emphasis on eco-friendly manufacturing. They’re a stone’s throw from our South Boston studio and we’re a big fan of their Boston Street Maps Carafe (would go perfectly with our map cuff bracelet)!
