Atlanta has always been the hub of the South when it comes to business and success. Coca-Cola was invented here. Home Depot is based here. UPS, Delta Air Lines, SPANX—the list of Fortune 500 companies goes on and on. These are powerful companies founded and backed by powerful people living right in our neighborhood. So it’s no surprise that Buckhead is home to some incredible power couples—the community, after all, is considered a major financial and commercial center in Georgia, and it’s also one of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Sure, big-name celebrities, athletes and CEOs call Buckhead home, but so do many other accomplished couples that happen to be pretty remarkable in their own right. They have young families, successful marriages, and are setting the trends in our fashion, dining and music scenes, all the while juggling volunteer work, homework and their personal lives. We wanted to introduce you to six “power couples” that epitomize the moniker in every possible way.
