Imagine this: just you and your fiancé, your closest friends, and a stunning city skyline in the backdrop. If you’ve been dreaming of something sophisticated and intimate for your wedding day, a modern rooftop elopement is just the inspiration you need! Set at The Gwen, these modern Chicago wedding ideas are oh-so-chic.
We especially love when couples get ready together- it allows for some really intimate and special moments, especially when it comes to giving gifts. Couples usually trade gifts the morning of the wedding, but how amazing would it be to do it together, allowing you to see your loved one’s reaction and really enjoy the moment?! This bride values timeless luxury and wanted to give her groom something he can wear to remember their wedding day. What better choice than a heritage timepiece by Movado from Kay Jewelers? Their sophisticated designs and impeccable craftsmanship make this gift something to cherish for a lifetime.
Elopements really allow for you to have the most meaningful people by your side for your wedding. Your best friend has stood by you through everything and you couldn’t imagine your big day without her. Giving her a gorgeous rose gold Movado watch is just one way to thank her for standing by you on the most important day of your life. Plus, a unique Movado watch is the perfect way to finish off her bridesmaid look.
The best part about rooftop ceremonies? The stunning backdrop is already provided! Just a few well placed lush florals give an added touch of warmth and elegance to the space for a picture perfect result. And we love this bride’s chic style! With a sleek embellished gown and a beautiful Movado watch herself, her style is on point. Just add the dreamiest bouquet with ribbons that catch that windy city breeze and the look is complete.
