The Staff

Coreena Ferrata – Owner

Coreena was born in Naples, Italy, as her parents were serving overseas in the US Air Force. Soon after, her family relocated to Mckinney, Texas where she attended Prosper High School. Coreena moved to College Station in 2010 to attend Texas A&M where she met and fell in love with her husband Nick towards the end of her third year.

Just prior to graduating in 2014, Nick proposed to Coreena at the Aggie Ring Plaza the day after she earned her Aggie ring. They enjoyed a beautiful destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas in June of 2015. Coreena’s hunt for a one-of-a-kind beach wedding gown inspired her to completely redesign the dress she purchased. Since then, she has designed gowns for close family and friends who also desired a couture look.

In 2017, Coreena decided to put designing on hold to pursue a new dream—opening a full service bridal boutique. Coreena’s personal experience of shopping for her own wedding dress sparked her passion for helping brides, with the ultimate goal of providing a unique selection of designer gowns that offer a couture look for an affordable price. More importantly, offering that possibility in College Station. Part of her vision of an all-in-one shopping experience included the necessity of on-site alterations. Local brides enjoy brands commonly found in larger cities, without the travel for multiple alterations appointments.

Nettie Kelly - Alterations Manager/Seamstress

After retiring from Sterling C. Evans Library, TAMU in 2010, Nettie’s life-long hobby with textiles developed into a career as an educator and creating “One of a kind” apparel and home decor.

Having been self-taught, Nettie started sewing at a young age. She perfected her skills by making her own clothing as well as clothing for her sisters, nieces, and for the men in her life.

Nettie’s accomplishments include owning a small home-based business, “Studio Couture”, creating custom patterns for couture wedding gowns, brides maids, mother of the bride/groom dresses, casual apparel, quilts, home decor and much more. Nettie and her mother-in-law, Dorothy Kelly replicated Barbara Bush’s wedding dress that resides at the George Bush Presidential Library.

Teaching a variety of techniques for apparel, quilting and home decor,  Nettie’s energized devotion shines as she inspires creativity by teaching various technique-based sewing classes.

Nettie met Coreena and her husband Nick in 2015, bringing Coreena’s wedding gown sketches to life for Coreena’s brides. When asked to join Coreena’s Bridal as Alterations Manager, Nettie was overjoyed at the opportunity to bring joy to brides every day. To the staff at Coreena’s, she is often referred to as “The Magician” for her incredible ability to transform any gown into a custom piece of art.

Hunter Scroggins – Stylist

A native of Creston, California, Hunter moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M. His very unique journey has taken a path from national-championship level FFA and Livestock judging in high school, to finding his true passion as a stylist.

Hunter has an extraordinary eye for beauty. A makeup artist by trade, his talents have blossomed to include fashion design and modeling. Some know him as Paris Amour, but we know him as Hunter, an infectious & honest personality who will keep you smiling. He lives and dreams fashion, and quite frankly, is the person that any girl would want around when they’re getting ready for a night with the man of their dreams. He is thoroughly invested in making everyone he encounters the most beautiful versions of him or herself.

Becca Sloane - Stylist

Rebecca (or Becca to us) was born and raised primarily in Vacaville, California until her parents relocated to Belton, Texas during her sophomore year of high school. She moved to College Station in 2017 to pursue her Bachelors in Journalism and her Associates in Sign Language at Blinn College and Texas A&M University.

Eager to be surrounded in a positive work environment, Becca pursued a position at David’s Bridal here in College Station. During her year there, she found a true passion for the wedding industry and helping brides feel like the most beautiful versions of themselves for their special day.

With a passion for learning and studying bridal trends, Becca is extremely skilled in understanding each bride’s unique vision. She extracts key details and utilizes these traits, ultimately guiding each bride to the dress of her dreams.

Katrislan Hawkins - Receptionist / Stylist

Katristlan was Born in Bay City and raised in Georgetown, Texas. After high school, she moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M University as a pre-veterinarian student. She graduated in May of 2016 with a bachelors of science in biomedical science and a minor in philosophy.

Throughout college and for a few years post graduation, Katrislan worked in the service industry as a waitress and bartender. Working in a customer service-oriented environment has taught Katrislan pristine hospitality skills that are a part of what makes brides’ experience with us truly memorable. She enjoys going above and beyond to personalize the shopping experience for each bride she encounters.

Working at Coreena’s Bridal has been a fun and exciting experience for Katrislan. She relishes in the positive and uplifting atmosphere that comes with helping brides find and fall in love with the dress that they will wear when they eventually say “I do.”
