Please remember if you request original invitation instead of a copy the thickness of the invitation will be a factor in how much light shows through the invitation.

2. Size of the invitation.
On a 6” tall candle the maximum height is 4 ½’

On a 9” tall candle the maximum height is 7 ½”

On a 12” tall candle the maximum height is 10 ½”

3. Remember that if you would like to have two sides put on they can not be wider 5 ½” wide.

Unity Candles
"And the two shall become one."

Our Wedding and Unity Candles can be customized with the bride & groom's name and date of wedding or even the actual wedding invitation on the candle.


. We also feature the Unity Wick™ Wedding Candle. The Bride lights one wick and the groom lights the other wick. Within a few minutes the two flames become one flame, symbolizing the two becoming one. Ferrell Knotts, the original Candlemaker from Walnut Creek, Ohio, originally designed this candlewick and called it a double wick. Over the last 30 years he has designed many unusual candles and shipped these candles all over the world.


Looking for just the unity wick™. If you have a unity candle that has a tea light insert you can use our special wick for only $9.99 free shipping.

We are a custom candle company. All of our candles are hand poured and made just for you.
Because they are hand poured heights may differ.

If you have an idea for a special occasion candle, let us know and we will do our best to make your candle with your design.

Ferrell Knotts

Ferrell Knotts "Candlemaker", was our father and he created this candle over 30 years ago. Many people who visited our store in Walnut Creek, Ohio, still remember him and the candles he made for them. We are now making candles for their children's weddings. I still have mine from 1974 so you can see this is a keepsake. It is a hollow candle with your invitation on it. The invitation becomes a part of the candle and a wick which is two wicks that burn into one flame.
