Have you ever considered a Swan House Atlanta luxury wedding? If you are looking to have a destination wedding, then look no further. I had the opportunity to photograph this historic venue and couldn’t be more in love with the results!
From designer Lisa Jaroscak of Storybook Weddings and Events – “This stunning editorial was inspired by the ambiance of the Atlanta Historical Society iconic venue, Swan House . With its old world details and chateau centric feel, it makes for the ideal location for a romantic wedding celebration.
We wanted to use a very earthy palette with a luscious floral installation for the ceremony altar. With the use of all shades of taupe, cappuccino, blush, rust, wheat, soft whites and muted green hues, we had a bloom heavy asymmetric altar feature. The floral combination of a variety of lush garden roses and white oversized chrysanthemums were woven together into the large design using ruscus and dramatic pampas grass to make an impressive backdrop against the water fountains on the estate.
The bride wore two different Mistrelli House of Design gowns. The first featured an ostrich feather cape overlay that is the essence of breathtaking. Whimsical yet fierce this look was captured in gardens of the estate alongside a classic black tuxedo from The Knot Standard. The second Mistrelli look was a classic gown with incredible beading work along the neck and bust as well with a shimmer all throughout the dress. The final look was a Berta collection lace gown that hugged Natalie’s curves..
The cake was a showstopper with all of the elegant and intricate sugar work from the incredibly talented Elaine Drouin Cakes. The three tier cake featured a feather technique in blush and white tipped in gold. The top two tiers had beautiful floral textures reminiscent of the gowns worn.
For the tablescape at our reception table, we had an eclectic grouping of floral cups and taper candles. The floral elements were in rose gold vases with organic arrangements of ranunculus, garden roses, dalias, and ruscus. The place settings were french inspired with soft lines and complemented with hand calligraphed place settings and personalized menus from Sugared Fig Paperie.
This 1928 mansion in the heart of Buckhead is frozen in time and continues to be the inspiration of romance and aesthetic for black tie affairs including weddings today. Creating an emotion with the use of so many beautiful pieces coming together to create a moment in time that no one will forget is what a wedding and marriage is all about. The environment provides a sensory experience that no one can define but it is filled with joy and warmth that we are all still enjoying today.”
