What is your favorite part or your job?
We love creating a high quality product for people and having a space for groups to gather and spend time with friends and family during our candle pouring workshops.
What was the inspiration behind the business? Or what is your personal inspiration?
Our vision while creating Nova Candle Co. was to provide people with a high quality product in a trendy vessel that they wouldn't be able to find in other retail locations. Our company name was actually inspired by our Goldendoodle, Nova!
If you could explain your business in the simplest way, how would you?
Soy wax candles, made with high quality ingredients.
What is one of your favorite client stories?
We recently had a client come in to restock her families' candle supply. She mentioned her husband loves our products so much and can really notice a difference in quality. He also doesn't have usual headaches, while burning our candles, so he will only let her buy and burn candles from us!
Do you have any hobbies or activities of interest? What are they?
We love spending long summer weekends up north in Michigan boating on some of the lakes with our family and friends.

We love hanging out at Summit Park, walking the path with our dog and joining in on some of the local events they host!
What is your favorite thing about owning a business in Montgomery?
Not being originally from the Montgomery area, in the past few months, we have quickly gotten to know a lot of people locally who have been quick to support us and spread the word about our business. It's a community that is looking to support local businesses and willing to try something new, which is awesome!
