My name is Samantha Redfern and I design and develop my own range of unique bridal gowns. My background is in the clothing industry for the last 42 years. Based along the Outer Banks, my bridal boutique has its own onsite Coastal Accommodations to ensure brides from all over the world may choose to find their dream gown and say “Yes to the Dress” while enjoying a mini-vacation with friends and family.


Gowns can be selected, ordered, and delivered within just 6 to 8 weeks without any rush fees, which is perfect for consideration in Elopement weddings. Brides can feel very confident that all of their bridal gown alterations will be executed to the highest standards, because we complete them on-site, within days, not weeks! Choosing Sinderellas Rockefellas to find your gown will prove to be the most exceptional experience, not only for your dress shopping experience but as somewhere to stay, relax and enjoy this beautiful holiday destination for yourself and your bridal party.


We recently added Tuxedo rentals to our boutique so that the guys can also feel pampered while they are here! Let Sinderellas Rockefellas introduce you to Full English Hospitality Experiences during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

Serving All of North Carolina

Sinderellas Rockefellas Coastal Accommodations & Bridal Boutique Owner Samantha, originally from the UK, has brought her passions together to create an idyllic boutique where wedding and elopement dreams are made. With 35+ years in the clothing industry, Sam’s love of clothes and people joined together to create a boutique worth traveling to. Sinderellas Rockefellasis truly a hidden gem situated along the most beautiful coastline of beaches for elopement & destination weddings, between the beautiful beaches of Oak Island, NC and the Historic downtown area of Southport, NC.


Couture gowns are achievable for all brides at Sinderellas Rockefellas Bridal Boutique. My gowns range in price from $1500 to $3500 when purchased, and we offer rentals as well! The price of the rental for Elopement purposes is usually priced at 30% of the total selling price. My gowns are samples in many styles and sizes, so we can normally find a size and style that works with the theme of the wedding! And while we can’t cut our dresses for elopement rentals, we can lightly alter most dresses to fit the bride’s body shape.

Sinderellas Rockefellas offers full-service bridal appointments, professional onsite measuring and alteration services, and sample gowns of all sizes and styles for brides to try on. And don’t forget the gents! From iconic to classic, the guys can try on suits and tuxes to match your style and preferences, with top brands to ensure you both leave feeling great. When we host private bridal appointments, they usually run for 2 hours and brides have the chance to try on 5 styles.


Clients are offered a beautiful suite to stay in so their gown purchasing doesn’t feel rushed. Plus, the Coastal Accommodations are more than the welcoming atmosphere and English Tea – stay for the night to enjoy the full experience of Sam’s English-style hospitality. Bring the wedding party, have a relaxing family weekend, or enjoy a getaway with your honey in the Luxury Queen Suite at the Seaside so you can both be styled!

“The CLEANEST and most COMFORTABLE bed and suite I’ve ever experienced, and I’ve been to some high dollar resorts! The love and care put into this property is evident and I highly recommend this unique Bridal boutique with onsite accommodations!!

CHEERS!! There is nothing I didn’t like! I can’t say enough about how wonderful my experience was for myself and my family. My gown is beautiful and I cant believe we were all brought to tears when I found ‘The One’.”
