One of the first steps you take in planning your wedding is choosing your bridal gown. It’s a fun and important part of planning your wedding.
This week we sat down with Angelita Sorensen, boutique manager at the Bridal Connection at Stone Oak. to talk about what makes their bridal shop unique, favorite client stories and why she loves working at the Bridal Connection.
What services do you provide?
We are a full-service bridal salon. We offer bridal gowns, bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids, flower girls, mother-of-the-bride/groom, and unique gala dresses.
Why do you love this company?
Family and the love for brides is everything. We love being a special part of a bride’s most important day of her life and definitely the most important garment she will ever wear.
What sets your company apart from similar ones in the same field?
Our customer service goes above and beyond and the service does not stop at the sale. Many brides become friends and invite our consultants to their weddings. We listen and we genuinely care. Our Bridal Connection at Stone Oak team is truly a family. We also carry exclusive designers like Randy Fenoli Bridal from “Yes to the Dress” fame, Martha Blanc by Rosa Clara, our designer from Spain, and we are the premier retailer in bridal for Morilee. We also travel to hand-select our gowns from Italy, Spain, and locally in the US.
What is your favorite part of your workweek and why?
Weekends are insanely busy but so much fun. Assisting brides with different visions and they are all so beautiful and unique. It is fast-paced and exciting!
What is one favorite client story and why?
One of our favorite stories is about our bride Celeste. She visited many locations but no one was truly listening to her. She loved different aspects of different dresses. I reached out to our rep in Italy and they informed us that they would sketch her dream dress and make it for her. Once that was done, they sent us the sketch and she fell in love with the sketch so she said, “Yes to the Sketch!” When it came in, she was completely in love, it was exactly as sketched and it was made to her exact measurements. She then invited the entire Bridal Connection at Stone Oak family to her beautiful wedding. She’s been married for a year and a half, now has a beautiful baby boy and we are still friends with her. This is just one of the many stories we have regarding our brides.
