About Our Team

All the right folks...

Paulette Napora Celeste

I began Celestial Invitations soon after Joe and I were married in 2007.  We couldn’t find the perfect invitation for our autumn wedding, so I began designing and creating our invitation.  I enjoyed the work so much, I  followed my creative passion to give others the opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind invitation.  Joe and I founded Celestial Invitations with one goal in mind – to create for you that unique invitation at an affordable price, with a stress free process.

Joseph Celeste

I am the labor behind Celestial Invitations.  When Paulette creates a design, I am the person who engineers the particulars – Is the design doable?  Do we need a special jig for assembly?  Can the design be produced economically?  I assist her with the assembly of the invitations, and hand cut all of the paper that we use.  I’m also a spokesperson for CI at bridal shows that we attend.

Satchmo Louis Armstrong

It is with a very heavy heart that we let all know that Satchmo crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, March 30th.  He was a wonderful companion and important asset to Celestial Invitations. He lived longer that anyone had ever expected, 17 years and 3 months.  We rescued him at the age of 3, so he was with Joe and Paulette for over 14 years.  We miss him and will never forget him.

I am truly a renaissance dog.  I wear many hats at Celestial Invitations.  I greet guests to our studio, but only if they want me to.  Security is also a big role for me, since I can be intimidating at times.  I also keep my mom company when she is working on your invitations.  But don’t worry, my hair is short and I don’t shed.  And, of course, as you can see below, I am expert at envelope licking, since I have the perfect tongue.

Conceived Out Of Necessity

My husband and I were looking for a custom invitation born of elegance and uniqueness.  But much to our dismay, custom wasn’t quite that at all.  It was merely a stock invitation with font and color options.  What we at Celestial Invitations do is provide you a truly handcrafted, custom invitation, designed specifically for you, expressed through our uncompromising attention to details.

What We Do

Celestial Invitations will personally design your wedding invitation, announcement, save-the-date card and other necessary stationery.  We will consult with you to discuss your visions and dreams, and then will design an invitation set especially for you, that will not be duplicated for anyone else.

Our Differences

Celestial Invitations is truly custom.  Each invitation is designed to meet your desires, and is handmade by us from start to finish.  Papers are personally selected, ribbons are hand-tied, and designs are hand-stamped, embossed, glued, and anything else.
