Rachel Ann Bridal started with a mother/daughter duo who both have a passion for not only beautiful gowns but more importantly bridal gowns. We understand the importance of finding the bride’s dream dress for her wedding day, which is why each and every one of our consultants is fully informed of all things bridal.
We believe every bride deserves to be pampered and made to feel special. That is why we offer personalized, one-on-one 90 minute appointments for each bride that walks in our boutique. Your consultant will be dedicated to working with you to find your special gown perfect for your dream wedding. Each of our beautiful gowns have been hand selected by Rachel for their elegance, sophistication and beauty. Whether you are looking for a tight fitting dress such as a mermaid or fit-n-flare or a princess ball gown, we offer a wide range of styles.
We require appointments so that our consultants are able to dedicate their time to assisting the bride uninterrupted during her 90 minute appointment.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you find your perfect gown and giving you a special, memorable dress shopping experience.
My love for fashion and bridal wear all started when I was very young. I can remember watching Aubrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady” on a small tube tv for the first time and absolutely falling in love with her fashion. Since then, my desire to design wedding dresses and own my own bridal shop has only grown from a dream to a real life business. I take pride in having personally made my daughter’s wedding dress, adding small touches from my wedding dress, such as bows and lace trimming. I also designed and hand crafted her veil. This experience has sparked a new level of commitment to make sure every bride finds the dress she loves. Finding the perfect dress can make a bride feel confident and beautiful; thus the reason I have hand selected each and every bridal gown in the store.
I think my love and knowledge with bridal began when I created and customized my very own wedding dress. My mother, Rachel Ann, was cutting the key hole in the lace on my back the morning before my wedding ceremony. Not only did I get a sense of anxiety as she created it but I also got a sense of relieve when it turned out exactly how I imagined. My special day was beyond perfect and now I strive to help every woman have that very same feeling. We get incredibly invested in each bride that walks through that door because we too have been there. Working at Rachel Ann Bridal and meeting so many wonderful women has been a dream come true.
Before I started working at Rachel Ann Bridal I never perceived the idea of how emotional and important it is for a bride to find her perfect dress to fulfill her fairy tale ending. That all changed when my sister got engaged. A whole new world was brought to my attention. Nearly exploring every bridal shop in Northeast Florida, we became weary that she would never find her perfect dress. That was until she booked an appointment here at the very own Rachel Ann Bridal. As she slipped into her first dress of her choice and stood, gazing into the mirror a single tear was brought to her eye and a load of emotions filled the room. We knew this was the dress she was going to wear the day she married the love of her life. The experience from that day never left me. This is why I decided to join the team here at Rachel Ann Bridal where they fulfilled my sisters dream and where I too wish to fulfill the dream of every bride that walks through the door.
