Our owner's story and vision

In late 2008, Janet Cooper took ownership of Angela’s Bridal. With over 22 years of experience in gown design and tailoring, Janet is a graduate of Penn State University with an MFA in gown design and construction. Her fitting and design expertise was best exercised while she served as Head of Wardrobe at the prestigious English National Opera in London, England.

Although the elaborate and beautiful costumes of international opera became Janet’s focus, she never lost the passion for the bridal industry that her mother – a bridal consultant for twenty nine years – instilled in her. While she was at the opera, she continued to work with personal bridal clients who were drawn to her exceptional skills and Janet was often commissioned to design and construct exquisite bespoke gowns.

Her vision for Angela's Bridal was to create an exceptional shopping experience, provided by knowledgeable consultants, with a relaxed approach, and dresses made from the most organic and finest fabrics, all in the backdrop of a stunning and decadent decor.

Janet’s commitment to the bride is simple: At Angela’s Bridal, you will have an amazing bridal gown experience from the beginning to ever after. She instills this ethic in her staff in every step of the gown selection process, and it shows – customers rave about the Angela’s Bridal experience.
