Bringing the sweeping elegance of Europe to the hushed grounds of the Swan Coach House, photographer Piper Vine Photography captured this stunning portrayal dreamt up by Heather Benge Events! Each gorgeous detail was the perfect marriage of classic romanticism and Southern charm — a delicate inspiration for a belle of a bride with an eye for timelessness!
A word from Julie Johnson of Piper Vine Photography:
“Samantha and Brandon met while studying art history abroad in Europe. They both loved the architecture and romance that the Renaissance period evoked. They decided that their big day should reflect their love of art history and the atmosphere of where they met in Europe, and knew that the Swan Coach House in Atlanta, Georgia would be a perfect fit. Samantha and Brandon were both from the Southeast, and wanted their friends and family to be able to celebrate with them and also shard their vision of art, music and architecture. They brought in a few Southern elements, such as pews for the ceremony, and European touches such as the long dining table. They had custom marble place cards and a marble cake to remind them of the marble statues they admired in Rome.”
