Swan House Wedding | Lex & Alex

Swan House Wedding | Lex & Alex

The Swan House is an icon in Atlanta.

Nestled within the lush greenery of the Atlanta History Center, the Swan House sets the perfect backdrop for a fairytale wedding. I was lucky enough to photograph my most recent wedding at the historic mansion as it played host to the Lex and Alex and all their guests.

As the doors of the Swan House swung open, all eyes turned toward Lex as she prepared to walk down the sweeping staircase escorted by her brother. Her gown became my favorite detail of the day, effortlessly blending a traditional look with some modern flair. The gown, along with its matching veil, displayed a blush undertone that perfectly matched Lex’s complexion. Delicate blue lace adorned the gown and veil, adding her “something blue” with effortless charm. The meticulous attention to detail created a truly unique and captivating ensemble. To complete her look, she wore a gorgeous headpiece that added an ethereal touch.

Following the ceremony, guests continued the celebration in the gardens for cocktail hour with a grand reception in the Atlanta History Center ballroom. Brianne McMullan Events welcomed created a stunning design that welcomed guests with soft candlelight and blossoming trees, bringing the outside in. Friends and family danced the night away, creating memories that would be cherished for a lifetime.

Thank you to the incredible vendor team who made this day possible!

welcome to my journal

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

let's meet!


North Beach was the perfect location for Nicole and Rob's Tybee Island session. While they played with their pup, Lucy, I simply followed. We ran together on the sand, not worrying for once about dirty hems or windy hair.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
