Atlanta’s spring social season culminated in this elegant soirée and the skies parted just in time for sunset cocktails on the lawn of the iconic Swan House.
Chair Barbara Joiner and her husband Eric Joiner, Atlanta History Center President / CEO Sheffield Hale and his wife Elizabeth Hale, and the evening’s honorees Jackie and Tony Montag and their family members.
A champagne reception at sunset was held on the grounds of the landmark, 1928 Swan House by Phillip Trammell Schutze. Dinner and dancing took place in the Grand Overlook Ballroom of the Atlanta History Center.
During cocktail hour on the Swan House lawn, guests sipped Champagne, while watching the sunset. The trumpet sounds of Joe Gransden called revelers to dinner in the Atlanta History Center’s Grand Overlook Ballroom. The ballroom was transformed by Tony Brewer and Company into an elegant setting in blue and gold with loads of spring blooms. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous dinner of lamb and beef tenderloin from Soirée Catering. After dinner guests participated in a live auction of luxury items lead by auctioneer Jim Landon and danced past midnight to the tunes of Joe Gransden and his Big Band.
