Elegant Mauve and Blush Wedding
aesthete /ˈesˌTHēt/ (n): a person who has a refined sensitivity toward the beauties of art and nature
Atlanta's historic Swan House is one of the most easily recognizable locations in the south that we know of. With such a stately exterior, incredibly charming and beautiful interior, and lavish garden grounds, today's feature by Taylor & Porter demands a look of elegance. The mauve and blush tones mixed with the flowy Leanne Marshall gown complement the timelessness that is the Swan House. Below photographer Louise of Taylor & Porter discusses more of the inspiration...
From photographer Taylor & Porter: "Combining the talent and experience of Rebekah Clark Moody of Forage & Fleur, and Martha McIntosh Creative Consulting we envisioned this soft and elegant shoot at one of Atlanta’s most beautiful historic homes; The Swan House. Drawing on a seasonal Springtime palette of soft mauves, apricots, blushes and buttery golds combined with clean modern neutrals they created a delicate and refined vision to appeal to a contemporary bride with an appreciation of all the beauty of the past. Telling a gentle romantic story hinting at the unique fleeting moments in the morning of a wedding followed by an inspirational ceremony space and a beautiful reception in the manicured grounds of the estate. Bentwood wooden chairs with textured unpressed linens combine with elegant crystal to achieve a look which is both accessible and not overdone. Hand made papers achieved an artisanal feeling whilst the delicate hand drawn golden calligraphy and heritage jewelry maintained an air of simple elegance and beauty."
