Modern Rooftop Elopement Inspiration With Pops of Color

August 12, 2022 | justine

Delicate spring florals, a bright pastel palette, and dramatic city skyline views—this modern rooftop elopement is the perfect toast to love in New York City. Planner Jaclyn Watson Events, florist Folklore Flower Co., and a talented team of vendors teamed up to create this styled shoot to show urban couples that an intimate elopement can be just as romantic and magical.

With unobstructed views of Manhattan and George Washington Bridge, Above The Heights was a great spot for this rooftop elopement inspiration. The scene was set for a beautiful vow exchange using towering florals in gold pedestals to frame the couple. Meanwhile, a romantic tablescape of artful blooms and taper candles that popped against rose-colored velvet linen added character to the adjacent minimalist reception space. 

And in true urban fashion, the couple donned chic attire—with Danae in a flirty mini dress and Jason sporting a classic black tux. If you and your partner love the idea of ditching big wedding plans, scroll through and fall in love with these spectacular photos by Julia Luckett Photography. It’ll surely convince you to elope in the city.
