Fate (Bumble) brought Tim Walton and Jared Overstreet together January 4th, 2019. Their relationship quickly blossomed, realizing they shared a very similar backgrounds —similar family-life experiences, memories, and Tim even played football against Jared's high school team. Most notably, they both had the same obsession with candles. For the first few months of their relationship, most of their dates ended in a visit to a nearby HomeGoods to sniff candles. They quickly found out they love the same scents! This turned into Tim making Jared a candle for Valentine's Day, making candles for their friends for Christmas, to starting a candle business.
Couple and business partners, they're enjoying a quarantined work and home life balance together. Every candle scent they make comes from a mutual love for it. Long trial and errors, ah-ha! moments, mistakes and disagreements, to head-in-the-cloud conversations of where this endeavor could take them —while cuddling, of course.
They work to cultivate modern scents that bring familiarity while also expanding palettes to new horizons. They hand decorate each candle to give a uniqueness and visual enhancement to the candle scent, setting itself apart as its own home decor staple. At the core of it, they want to be examples in the LGBTQ community who spread peace, love, and awareness. With this in mind, they've pledged to forever donate at least one percent of their annual profit to The Trevor Project. They are incredibly excited to see where Walstreet Candles is headed and excited to have you part of it!
