Rooftop weddings are all the rage – and for good reason. Having a rooftop wedding really does take the celebration to a whole new level. What could be cooler than saying "I do" against the skyline of a city special to your hearts? With unforgettable views, photo opps, and plenty of personality, these weddings illustrate why rooftop weddings are truly the tops.
They're a Breath of Fresh Air
All puns aside, there's something about a rooftop wedding that inspires a refreshing design approach. Jan and Nam sealed the deal overlooking NYC—as seen on Junebug Weddings—incorporating vibrant vintage furniture, a red marquee love sign and caricature favors. Their garden-meets-pool-party-cool aesthetic, which you get a taste of in the photo above, is just one example of how an open-top celebration makes room for originality.
Swaying Under the City Lights is Oh-So-Romantic
Imagine slow dancing to your song under the stars, surrounded by the glow of the city. It doesn't get more movie-like than that. This San Diego wedding from Green Wedding Shoes shows just how much of a difference lighting can make, as a parking garage isn't the first option that'd come to mind for a picture-perfect venue.
You Can Say "I Do" Above a Beloved Restaurant
This couple from Junebug Weddings tied the knot on top of one their favorite Chicago eateries, the Little Goat Diner. The restaurant's intimate, eclectic setting was just what Ashley and Mike were craving for their special day. Plus, the venue, food, and booze coordination was an easy all-in-one.
A Big City Inspires Big Glamour
Any wedding inspired by Carrie and Big's is bound to be stylish, but this couple's occasion was one for the books. Marrying classic elegance with the avant-garde, Pauli and Henrique's chic NYC wedding had skyscrapers serve as an iconic backdrop.
One Word: Fireworks.
Any romantic occasion is immediately amplified when fireworks are involved, but watching them from a rooftop is whole other story. The fireworks for this couple's NYC Fourth of July rooftop celebration, spotted on PopSugar, made for some seriously stunning shots. Let the sparks fly!
