meet christine.

Being my own boss, this is something I never thought I had the discipline to do. A very close friend told me years ago that I was destined to do this. I'm so glad we've had people believe, support and encourage us. It's been a beautiful journey and I can't wait to see what the future has in store.

Eight years ago we decided to take a leap into the wedding industry. Never would I have imagined that we would build a successful career from it, in two different states! I am truly blessed to be living my dream and doing what I'm most passionate about!

we are Shop Aurea

Shop Aurea is a wonderfully unique invitation business. Custom designed wedding stationery  is what we specialize in. Shop Aurea was born and raised (yes, just like a baby) in Lake Charles, LA

in April of 2010. Since then, lots of time, creativity and love has been poured into this business.

We are sisters who have a passion for paper and graphic design.


How did we get our business name? We share the same middle name... Aurea!

{Pronounced "R-ee-uh"}


We work hard to meet the needs of our wonderful clients by carefully creating something truly special for each individual. Shop Aurea provides quality invitations and paper products for anyone, no matter the distance. We have reached nation wide... California, Wyoming, Iowa, Maryland, New York, several parts of Texas and of course all over Louisiana!


We pride ourselves in being Authorized Envelopments® Dealer/Designers.
