The Venue

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.


The Highlights

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.
