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.

After one year in business, Coreena’s Bridal expanded their building to accommodate more brides. Two years after launching her flagship boutique, Coreena is excited to reach more brides across Texas with the second location of Coreena’s Bridal in Georgetown.

Gracie - Store Manager / Marketing Director

Born and raised in Beaumont, Texas, Gracie played many sports but dance was always her passion. She moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M where she graduated with a BBA in marketing in May of 2021. Throughout her college years, dance remained a prominent passion while she participated in the largest dance organization on campus for all four years. She credits this sport for teaching her discipline, creativity and expression.

Since 2020, Gracie developed customer service skills working as a bartender in the Northgate District. She always knew she wouldn’t be satisfied with a “normal” office job.

Gracie was initially asked to model for Coreena’s Bridal in July of 2021. After about one year of modeling, Gracie knew she wanted to become a permanent team member and was hired on as a stylist and social media manager; she has since become our Marketing Director and Store Manager. Her favorite moments at Coreena’s are when a bride finds her dress. The raw emotion in those instances pull at her heart strings and make her so grateful to share that moment with the bride and her loved ones.

Her favorite part of working as a bridal stylist is helping brides say their “2nd yes”, and seeing the joy that lights up on their faces.

Ali was born in Beaumont, TX, but grew up in Mobile, Alabama. When she turned 18, she joined the military so she could attend college with financial freedom. After serving five years in San Diego, Ali moved to College Station, Texas to start her education journey. Surrounding her time in the military, she worked in the service industry in several types of restaurants, bartending, and waiting tables. Traveling to other countries and experiencing different cultures, serving with members from all walks of life, and working in customer service has made her adaptable and relatable to almost anyone she meets.

Ali joined Coreena’s Bridal in August 2023 to earn experience in a new industry. Ali always loved dressing up her friends for various occasions or events, but she found herself specifically drawn to bridal. Her favorite part about being a stylist is getting to know her brides on a personal level and then accessorizing the dress to make it special and unique to them.
