SpecialMomentsBridal&TuxedoShoppe
Ed Porter opened Ed's Shoe repair in 1985 in Emporia, Va & moved the business to Roanoke Rapids, NC in 1987. In 2001 he purchased a Bridal and Tuxedo Shoppe which had been established since 1994. He then placed the shoe repair shop in the back of the Bridal Shoppe and began expanding the bridal and tuxedo shop. He remodeled the shoppe to make it formal.


He married his beautiful wife Marilynn on April 21,1989 and she had two beautiful daughters Susan age 11, Pam age 9. On Sept 12th 1991 they had a boy named Eddie. After Eddie was born Marilynn began working with Ed full time at the store.

They put in a line of bridesmaid dresses and tuxedos. They offer alterations, and still offer rental wedding dresses. Special Moments now has a line of wedding Gowns to purchase in store.


They help you in placing your orders whether it is tuxedos for the guys or gowns for the ladies.
