I had the chance to photograph a romantic styled shoot at the beautiful Swan House Atlanta recently. With it’s European inspired architecture and incredible gardens, the Swan House Atlanta was the perfect location to dream up a classic and romantic wedding styled shoot. If you’re dreaming about a garden wedding day, especially at a historic home, this Swan House Atlanta wedding styled shoot will definitely inspire you! 

Classic Bridal Gowns

Our sweet couple, Shacori and Brandon, looked stunning! Shacori wore an off-the-shoulder wedding gown with a veil while our groom, Brandon, wore a navy blue suit. His blue suit brought a pop of color to their portraits. Shacori’s gown was the perfect combination of classic and modern – with a big slit up the leg! It was gorgeous.

We also had another beautiful bride, Dasha, who posed in the gardens with our reception setup. I absolutely loved her bridal portraits. She looked incredible in another off-the-shoulder gown with puffed sleeves. It was an elegant gown, perfect for the classic venue in Atlanta. Seriously, I adored the way this gown moved as we photographed Dasha.

Lush Floral Garden Wedding Reception Details

Thanks to our incredible vendor team, our reception tablescape was a dream! With two tall floral centerpieces containing light pink and white roses, the table was ready for a party. Set on a wooden table with long table runners of greenery, the reception space came alive. The place settings were simple and understated, making the florals the true focus of the table. It was the perfect setup for a quiet garden celebration.

Pastel Garden Wedding Color Palette

Honestly, my favorite part might be the color palette of this day: pastel pinks, ivory, and navy blue. I loved how perfect the pastel palette looked against the green hedges and stone walls of the Swan House. Everything was perfectly planned! We also can’t forget to mention the incredible wedding cake. It was a tiered cake with simple white icing and gorgeous handmade flowers. It was simply stunning!

I’m so happy I was able to capture this romantic styled shoot. It was a dream come true to be a part of this vendor team!
