Owner Samantha Back & her dream team will make their dreams come true! The dream of making every bride as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.

Samantha Back is the owner & buyer for The Princess Bridal. Samantha is married to her high school sweetheart & they have two beautiful children. Samantha was originally from California & always dreamed of owning a bridal shop. When Sam was eight for Halloween she dressed as a Bride and that was when the Bridal bug bit her. Samantha is ready with her amazing staff to start on this new adventure of helping you to find the perfect wedding gown.
I have always known that one day I would own a Bridal Shop & in 2005, that dream came true! My Daughter, Jade & I had planned her wedding the year before, my Husband was successful in the delivery/courier business….I just was ready to branch out on my own! I went to the bridal market with my friend Vickie to just look & on Sunday I had bought my first 60 dresses, before I had even signed a lease for the building. I really love helping the Bride figure out her style & I find that there is so much joy in finding “The One”. I am married for thirty-five years & have two children & seven grand-children. I truly love what I do & look forward to helping you!
I am now one of the buyers for the new owner Samantha Back who bought the shop in December of 2017. Samantha & my amazing staff are so excited to continue my dream of helping Brides look beautiful on their wedding day.
