Established in 1956, Orange County’s oldest bridal center has recently been voted Best Bridal & Formalwear Salon in Orange County. With over 60 years of professional service and elegant designer gowns, Ferndales Bridal has become renowned (largely) through tradition and word of mouth (please see our testimonials page.)
Owned and operated by the Linnert Family since May 2005, Ferndales continues to provide quality merchandise and attentive service. The Linnerts have generations of bridal experience, and share a passion for community and fashion. Their fresh enthusiasm is fostered from a dream Connie has aspired to make real. As a child Connie helped her mother (Coco Jimenez Pedroza) a well known designer and dressmaker from Jalostotitlan, Jal. Mexico. Along with her experience and interest in fashion, Connie enjoys meeting people and connecting lives. Connie met her husband, Tom (a former professional baseball player) who grew up in the City of Orange, CA and was playing ball in Mexico, at the time. Tom and Connie were married in January 1978, just 3 ½ months after they met.
Today, along with their four children (and spouses) and six grandchildren, the Linnerts are very involved in their community; through church, school, sports, non-profits and recreational activities. The Linnerts believe that Faith, Family and Friends are life’s most precious possessions, and they provide inspiration for making Ferndales Bridal a friendly, welcoming and enjoyable place for all people. The Linnerts and their team at Ferndales Bridal look forward to meeting you and helping in your celebration of family and friends on your most special wedding day.
The history of Ferndales Bridal is constantly unfolding and is much about the story of our bride’s and their families. We are interested to know more about “Her”stories and “Your”stories and invite you to share any pictures or information you may have.
