Modern Details and Classic Elegance at Swan House Estate
In 1928, as the Jazz Age came to an end, designer Philip Trammell Schutze designed The Swan House in such a way that he was able to include the Renaisance style and the Classical style all in one. While front of the house is regal and stately, the rear of the Swan House is less formal (though still quite a sight to behold!). It was built as a private family home, but meant to be a place to entertain, and in the years since the Atlanta Historical Society acquired it, it has served as an incredible backdrop to countless soirees.
This Swan House Atlanta wedding editorial shoot was hosted by G and A Weddings, who worked with an exceptionally subtle Gatsby vibe, with loads of updated details to create a thoroughly modern take on a theme we're all familiar with. Velvet napkins and sleek black and gold flatware were paired with painterly details on the placecards and cake. This perfect balance of classic elements, including the venue, and modern pieces created such an exciting and refreshing event. Highlighting the different spaces the venue offers, the ceremony space was set up with all the grandeur of Swan House serving as the backdrop while the reception table was surrounded by stone walls and greenery for a more intimate hidden garden feel. The elements of this shoot provide so much inspiration, we expect to see it inspiring events and showing up on Pinterest boards for years to come.
