An Illuminating Collection of Wedding Gowns

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

We couldn’t wait another minute to share more from our Luminary wedding gown editorial captured by the talented Tracy Enoch Photography at the Brake and Clutch Warehouse! Brake and Clutch was the perfect space for this fashion-focused shoot. With natural light pouring into the wide open spaces of this industrial setting, every shot was a dream! Our team is still swooning over every jaw-dropping gown from DFW’s top bridal salons and beauty from WZ Beauty Studio. We couldn’t have brought these bridal looks to life without the help of fashion stylist Lindsey Zamora. Everly Alaine Florals crafted the perfect modern arrangements to fit this fashion-forward shoot and we love the glittering cake from The Jenny Layne Bakery! Propmaker Luxury Event Rentals completed so many scenes with their modern chairs and acrylic risers. Now be sure to watch the incredible behind the scenes video captured by Tyler + Lindsey at the bottom of this post!
