The Georgian and Imperial Ballrooms and Their Luxurious Design

The Atlanta Biltmore Hotel was opened on April 19, 1924. The hotel was designed by the New York firm of Schultze and Weaver. Schultze and Weaver also designed the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Manhattan, New York City.

Due to extensive renovations over the years, there were only two remaining historic rooms at the Atlanta Biltmore Hotel. They were the Georgian and Imperial Ballrooms, and now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With the renovation, these ballrooms received original handcrafted plaster relief ceiling, restored crystal chandeliers, Palladian windows and Tennessee marble floors. The Biltmore ballrooms offer a spectacular backdrop for weddings, and special events.

Thank you The Biltmore Ballrooms for allowing us to have such an unique experience during our photoshoot.

What not to love about a historical & magical place like the Swan House?

The Swan House mansion was built in 1928 for Edward and Emily Inman after their house in Ansley Park burned in 1924, a sad tragedy that turned into beauty. The house is maintained as a 1920s and 1930s historic house museum with many of the Inmans’ original furnishings. It was also used to film some scenes in the 2013 film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and its 2015 sequel, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. I couldn’t have selected a better venue for this photo shoot. A special thank you to all wedding professionals that dedicated their time and passion to this shoot.
