Edel Patterson, a German immigrant, dreamed as a teenager to have one day a boutique. She fulfilled her dream after retiring from the juvenile justice system, the State of Maryland’s Department of Juvenile Services after 28 years awarded with a Governor’s Citation. She received a retail/business certification in Germany, graduated with a criminal justice degree and from the DJS Leadership Institute in the US. Her love for fashion evolved to a passion for the bridal business. After a year of research with top national bridal business consultants and Harford County & Anne Arundel Economic Development advisors, plans flourished into the grand opening of “edel’s bridal boutique, LLC” on October 16, 2015. The store is located in the heart of the beautiful historic city of Havre de Grace, MD and in the midst of La Banque de Fleuve wedding venue. Since it’s opening the boutique blossomed in the tri-state area of MD, PA & DE. Supported by her children, who named the boutique, works her daughter-in-law Cassandra, a graphic-designer graduate and experienced retail sales representative.
The philosophy of edel’s bridal boutique is simple. Serving and consulting brides to find their dream dress from top designers for their special day is our passion. Maintaining a fresh inventory by selecting gorgeous dresses in various styles for everyone is a must. Offering high quality, light, and fabulous fabrics is a standard for a great fit for all brides, mothers, and bridesmaids.
