I am so glad you're here!
My name is Elise, I started this Wesley & Wade with a purpose to make top quality specialty candles that you'll love, while building friendships and community. I love everything about entrepreneurship and thrive to learn and grow with each passing year.
The name Wesley & Wade was inspired by my twin boys Summit Wesley and Maverick Wade. They had a seven week NICU stay at the beginning of life and that life experience taught me about strength, resilience and purpose. It was the hardest thing I had ever gone through. I decided that starting my own company was what I always wanted to do and that there's no time like today to go for your dreams. Six months after their birth, Wesley & Wade, LLC was established.
I live in Hood River, Oregon with my husband, our dog Solo, and our twin boys Summit Wesley and Maverick Wade. When I am not creating, my favorite place to be is out on the water. You may have seen us out windsurfing or winging!
Wesley & Wade candles are handmade in Oregon with top quality candle ingredients including 100% soy wax and cotton braided eco wicks. Our candles are phthalate free, paraben free and cruelty free. I use solely Clean Scent fragrances that are free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in fragrance.
