Arlene and Wayne have always dreamed of starting their own business. Arlene worked 37 years as a nurse, her hobbies have always been volunteering, sewing, scrapbooking, and many other arts and crafts, while raising 2 kids. When her oldest child got engaged, she was excited to go shopping with her future daughter-in-law to help her find her Wedding Gown. Though there were many great people they met along the way, Arlene felt there was something missing in the wedding industry. As her daughter struggled to find bridesmaid dresses to fit in to try on, and her struggles to find a mother's dress that looked modern and complemented her figure, she strived to find a bridal store with options for everyone. Then she found Moments To Cherish Bridals and met the previous owner Celeste. Celeste was selling her store because she was ready to retire. Arlene saw this as a perfect opportunity to follow her dream of becoming a business owner, help other people find their attire in a fun, relaxed environment, with many sizes, and style options to try on, an opportunity to be more creative and do more sewing. She went home and spoke with her husband and they purchased the bridal store. Putting her nursing career behind her, she enjoys working with each guest, helping them find the attire for their special event as if they were a member of her family.
Now with the challenges of the pandemic, she has found that life has taken her down this path for a reason, her background in nursing has given her the knowledge and confidence for coming up with protocols to do what is best to keep herself, her staff, and customers safe while they shop during this pandemic.
