Patrons of the Swan Ball to benefit Cheekwood Botanical Gardens enjoyed a special party prior to the big night. Jean and Denny Bottorff opened the doors of their gorgeous home to host notable, philanthropic guests for an elegant evening. Guests were greeted by a pair of feather swans and music by Latin trio Serenatta led by Pablo Garson. Highlights of the night included stunning jewelry by designer John de Jong, and fare catered by the wonderful Kristen Winston. The setting was perfection thanks to the creative efforts of Jenny Richter Events and florals by The Tulip Tree. Coverage by Milton White of The Fashion Office with Photos by Adrian Morales.
