Welcome!  I’m Stephanie Wagner, founder & maker at Old Dominion Candle Co.  I currently live in Charlottesville, VA with my husband and son.  I love to garden and read, and if I can get away from the candle studio, spending time with my family at our lake house.  

I started my craft of candle making years ago when I created and produced a line of candles for my employer.  This afforded me the experience, along with being a retail manager, to then create my own candle business.  I love the creativity that comes with candle making, especially the challenge of custom blending a new scent or trying out a new candle vessel. 

We hand-pour each of our candles using all-natural soy wax and phthalate free fragrance oil.  Hand-pouring in small batches ensures quality and that is what we strive for at Old Dominion Candle Co.
