Under new ownership, Cristina's is embarking on many new and exciting changes, including a complete rebrand.

A Note From Gretchen
Other than my family and friends, there is nothing I love more than weddings and fashion! I believe that in my life you should always lead with love. Weddings are ceremonies that signify and center around this belief.
I have spent the last 20 years in the wedding industry working with brides as a makeup artist and hairstylist. Nothing fulfills me more than being a huge part of how a bride feels on her special day. It's truly an honor to be a part of one of the most important days in a bride's life.
In 2009, after getting my wedding gown at Cristina's, I realized that I wanted to own a bridal gown store. However, I didn't just want any bridal gown store... I wanted Cristina's. Now after 12 years my dreams have come true!
Having been a bride myself twice, once for my wedding and a second time for a vow renewal, my experiences looking for that "special dress", were not what I thought they should be. That is what inspires me to give all of our brides the best experience when they come to Cristina's. As the new owner, I get to apply my love for bridal and fashion. I get to continue being an important part of a bride's special day. I get to lead with love, doing business with integrity and building lasting relationships with our beloved brides.
Love is all...
