Steve surprised Candace
at their reception
at the Elks Lodge in Pasadena.
He did NOT walk down the aisle
in a bunny costume

as one news story claimed!

It's a love story!
Candace and Steve
call each other

HONEY BUNNY

Steve is holding their first bunny pet,
"Honey Bunny".
She was a female New Zealand White.
(Originally thought to be a male—
which they've discovered
is a pretty common
occurrence with bunny owners.)
Honey Bunny is preserved (freeze-dried)
and on display in the museum.


Honey Bunny (1996-2003)


This is the first bunny
that started the whole collection!


This is the second bunny
that Candace gave to Steve on Easter.

instead of a flower bouquet.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

16 August 1992: Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski met at a weekly single’s discussion group called "Seminars for Singles" in Pasadena, California run by therapist, Liz Hargrove. They both had joined this and other dating services looking for each other. That Sunday’s topic was “How To Meet The Opposite Sex & Keep ‘Em Interested”. Candace and Steve never returned to the single’s group (no need), but Liz Hargrove served as their Matron of Honour at their wedding because she introduced them!

Steve gave his girlfriend, Candace a white, plush bunny (which holds a heart with the banner, “I Love You This Much”) on Valentine's Day, 1993 because Candace called him her "Honey Bunny". Candace gave Steve a white, porcelain bunny on Easter. At first, they gave each other bunny gifts on holidays, but, Steve not wanting to wait, started their tradition of giving bunny gifts to each other, every day!

Steve and Candace married in 1994 at the
Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. They still give each other a bunny item every day as a love token. Exchanging bunny gifts doesn't strengthen their love for each other. It is an expression of their love. It's not the reason they love each other!

People often ask, what if Steve had given Candace another animal? First, he wouldn't have because Candace called him, "Honey Bunny", but if they called each other something else, there'd still be a collection and then a museum, but of another animal!
It was meant to be.

They didn't set out to create a museum. They generously share their private collection with visitors because they believe that is what one should do.

Bunnies were the theme
of their wedding.


These dolls (centre) are replicas of the bride and groom and were the wedding cake topper.

Candace made their
CARROT wedding cake.


To All Visitors:
Candace & Steve do accept and appreciate bunny gifts.
(And flowers, vegetables, postage stamps!)
PLEASE DO NOT BRING THEM A REAL BUNNY FOR A GIFT!
