Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Celestina Bridal is an intimate bridal boutique tucked away on Folsom’s Historic Sutter Street. We are the destination for discriminating brides who expect exclusive gowns and exceptional attention. We also have a unique understanding of the modest bride and carry the best selection of stylish modest wedding gowns in Sacramento. I always dreamed of owning a bridal boutique, so Celestina definitely found me.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
I taught piano as a teenager. My first student was in her mid-40s; she helped me realize that I can always make a positive impact on others, regardless of age.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
It’s a privilege to work with fabulous local photographers, seamstresses, florists, and other professionals who help make Celestina’s bride’s special day perfect.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
My two amazing children.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
Dr. Steven R. Covey. His book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, changed the direction of my early professional career and much of what he taught continues to influence my life.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Being part of a significant time in a woman’s life and helping her feel beautiful.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Wasabi Asia Bistro & Sushi Bar.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
The Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary.
And finally, customer service is…?
Respecting each person as the amazing individual that they are and doing everything in your power to meet their need.
