Elegance Overflows at The Swan House in Atlanta, Georgia

What do you get when you combine a classic color palette with an elegant and historic estate? Say hello to this timeless Styled Shoots Across America shoot with images from White Orchid PhotographyThe Swan House in Atlanta, Georgia provided the jaw-dropping backdrop for this dream scene with design by Heather Benge Events.

As soon as you step on the grounds, you feel like you are on the grounds of a Grand Chateau in the French countryside. With winding pathways, and stunning views, the grounds are stunning.

Not only is this venue amazing, but it has also been featured in The Hunger Games, as President Snow’s Mansion. The simple and neutral color palette made the deep cranberry red hues pop, and made the details spring to life. Be on the lookout for stunning florals from Thorne & Thistle, stationery from Momental Designs, and wedding gowns from Build-A-Bride by Heidi Elnora.

From White Orchid Photography, "Before the ceremony, I captured bride and groom portraits around the grounds, including the picturesque gardens."
"Our groom wore a three piece tuxedo, with a red jacket, black pants, and cream boutonniere. It was unique, but timeless! Our bride had two looks in one, with her gown from Heidi Elanora."
"The versatile lace top made for stunning pictures, and was perfect for the ceremony. I love taking my couples aside before the ceremony to get intimate portraits of the two. It's a moment of silence, we can focus on just the two of them."
"Their ceremony took place in front of the regal fountain, with vintage church pews for the guests. Their adorable fur baby Sadie, the sweetest golden retriever, joined them for the ceremony. And she even wore a gorgeous floral collar that matched the brides bouquet!"
"The reception took place in the garden, with stunning floral centerpieces, brass candlesticks, and touches of deep red throughout. This color palette is perfect all year round, and can easily be incorporated in every season."
"The cake table featured various desserts, including donuts, and hand painted macarons."
Linens from Nuage Designs and rentals from Peachtree Events made the sweetest statement. 
Hair and makeup was perfect thanks to Gilded Beauty Bridal.

"The three tiered cake from Sweet Details had hand-painted floral details, that was absolutely gorgeous. The incredible styling and design allowed me to immerse myself, and capture the beautiful scenery, and perfectly styled details."
