I have dreamed of shooting a Swan House Atlanta wedding for ages. Years ago I fell in love with its architecture and vibrant blue doors. When we made the move back to Georgia it was on my top five list of venues to photograph at in the state. I was thrilled when the opportunity for an editorial shoot came at this wedding venue back in January.
If you are not familiar with the Swan House, it was built in 1928 as the Jazz Age came to an end. It was designed by Philip Trammell Shutze who expertly combined the Reniassance style with Classical. While the front of the house is incredibly regal and stately, the rear of the Swan House is less formal with it’s covered entrance.
Originally built for the Inman family as a place to entertain in Buckhead, Emily lived there until 1965. The house was then acquired by the Atlanta Historical Society and has not only served as a great historical site but also as a fantastic wedding venue.
The Swan House Atlanta wedding editorial shoot was fantastic. It was hosted by G and A Weddings in January with a slightly Gatsby feel without feeling to overly costume like. It perfectly fit the exterior of the Swan House with mustard and black velvet sprinkled throughout the formal gardens.
I had the opportunity to tour the interior of the Swan House with it’s grand staircase and floor to ceiling bookcases. The homes staircase with the black and white checkerboard floor is so classic. I can’t wait to capture some beautiful bridal portraits there in the future.
If you are planning an Atlanta wedding at the Swan House, count me in friend. It might just be in the running for top favorite wedding venues ever.
