There are some wedding venues that particularly lend themselves to elegance. The Atlanta History Center’s Swan House, a historic Atlanta wedding venue, is one of them. Joey and Katie knew it was the perfect historical setting, a grand backdrop in the middle of the city, but private enough to feel tucked away and deliciously exclusive. Guests entered the outdoor celebration via the sweeping front staircase of the house, earning them a breathtaking view of the grounds. The bride wore a gown by Maggie Sottero as she joined her groom for the ceremony, presided over by close family friend and pastor, Matthew Mitchell. Once the ceremony was complete, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the house gardens, the bride and groom soon joining for the reception at the back of the house. Fare by Bold American Events & Catering boasted three food stations with selections like shrimp and grits, pork tenderloin, and macaroni and cheese to name a few. A four tier cake by Atlanta cake designer, O’ How Sweet did not disappoint. Following the meal, the party moved to the dance floor where the bride and groom celebrated the night away to entertainment by The Free Band. It was a night to remember, the sizable affair intimate in the close fellowship of family and friends and vows made to last a lifetime. The evening came to a close as the newlyweds waved goodbye from their vintage getaway car from Atlantic Limousine.
