Are you trying to visualize the actual canopy itself, or the supportive structure?  Because I think both can have wide varietions.  (Well, maybe more potential for variation in the canopy than the poles.)

I’d imagine if you want modern, you’d want simple, clean metal poles as a support.  A far as the covering…do you want a “modern” look that compliments the setting?  And is that the area you’re finding yourself stuck on?

I don’t know if this is something that would help to inspire you, but this is the huppa we had at our indoor, garden ceremony (of course you could do away with the flowers and possibly use lace of some sort).

@Laurajpearce: Hi, I am not Jewish but i plan on using a chuppah ( canopy) as well for my oustside lake ceremony. By looking around and googling I came across this idea: use the pole structure of those popup gazebos and DNT use the covering that comes with it but instead use tulle, or some other fabric, flowers, lace , beads, whatever you like really.

There are so many beautiful ways to create and personalize a chuppah! As a wedding photographer I’ve seen many lovely variations on the theme–from simple posts held by friends of the bride and groom and draped with fabric, to elaborate structures built to be a lasting part of their home together.
