This glamorous European-inspired wedding editorial at The Olana in Dallas, Texas was chic, fashion-forward, and colorful! We first spotted this gorgeous shoot on award-winning photographer, Lauren Baker’s Instagram. Thankfully, when we reached out to Lauren about a feature, she agreed and gave us the inside scoop on the day! Read it all firsthand below:
“We intended to shoot on a warm and sunny spring day that was reminiscent of a delightful day in the French countryside. Instead, the day turned out windy, gloomy and 45 degrees, but that didn’t stop this creative group led by host Develope Academy and designer Lindsey Brunk!
The florals from Flo.Real were selected with an effortless and romantic aesthetic in mind. Flo.Real walked the line between minimalist and decadent design brilliantly as evident when looking at the simple tablespace and the lush ceremony arch.
Our bride’s classic bridal gown and veil, from Ukrainian designer Eva Lendel, featured dramatic off-the-shoulder sleeves and pearls throughout the veil. We specifically wanted to feature Eva Lendel as a small way to show our support for Ukraine and Ukrainian artists during these dark times.”
