About

Designer Invitations, Announcements + Stationery for Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Baptisms, Birthdays, Bridal Showers, Christmas, First Communion, Sweet 16, Quinceañera,Pregnancy and More!

The concept of Starlite began in 1998 with the birth of my first son. I was a first grade teacher and decided to be a stay-at-home Mom to raise my children.
It took me one full year to design and publish a fully functioning e-commerce website - one of the very few available at the time in 1999. This was how Starlite Weddings & Occasions began - http://starwedd.com

The e-commerce business blossomed and eight years later, in 2007 I began doing graphic design work. In 2008 I opened my Etsy shop and originally began offering a line of unique photo birth announcement and baptism invitation designs. I later expanded my offerings to include designs for first communions, baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries and so much more!
