Take the most romantic wedding dream, bring it to life and you have exactly the type of breathtaking vision unfolding in today’s editorial, crafted with stunning execution by Sapphire Events and captured by one of the best destination photography teams in the world, Archetype Studio Inc.
Among the many flawlessly, beautiful details- the delicate, vintage wedding gown by Gossamer, lush, textured florals from Gertie Maes, an elegant, multi-layered creation by Melissa’s Fine Pastries and so much more- all against the backdrop of a stately mansion. It doesn’t get much better than this!
From Archetype Studio Inc: We appreciate the history and story of the Inman Family’s Swan House just as much as its beauty. I loved walking through the house after the shoot! Swan House, traditionally known as one of the most recognized and photographed landmarks in Atlanta, is an elegant, classically styled mansion built in 1928 for the Edward H. Inman family, heirs to a cotton brokerage fortune. The mansion, designed by famed Atlanta architect Philip Trammell Shutze, provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of this Atlanta family during the 1920s and 1930s.
Today, the Swan House is still the setting for beautiful weddings and celebrations. May is one of the loveliest months as the roses are usually in bloom and the lawn is green – providing the perfect backdrop for your outdoor event. If I could get married again and again (to the same person of course), Swan House would certainly be on the top of my wedding venue list. We would host our ceremony on the picturesque back lawn of the Swan House, followed by a cocktail hour in the boxwood garden and then return to the lawn for a reception under the stars. Line the long stairs with lanterns and drip the lawn with cafe lights for a romantic reception that won’t soon be forgotten.
