Oh! This is basically our wedding. We’re combining the two – venue in the city, with some country/rustic touches. 

We had two venues in mind for this, one a courtyard and art studio, and the other (which we will most likely go with) an architectural artifacts resale shop. 

This is the venue we’re probably going with:


I have better pictures but this one came up quickly on Google images, haha. Anyway, the furniture is all provided, but we’re doing casual, summer-y flower centerpieces, my dress is a flowy tulle dream (okay, I may love it TOO much) and I’m not wearing a veil. I’m making our cakes and doing a cake buffet, and will probably be working my love of horses into one or two places. The most important thing to us is finding a balance between the two so it’s not overdone, but it’s very us.

That’s kinda the theme I’m going for too!  We’re booked in center city philadelphia and just searched like EVERY venue until we found the one that we felt we could get to look the way we wanted our wedding to look.  We’re doing the curly willow centerpieces (the twiggy branches) with hanging votives and LOTS of other candles everywhere, to keep it feeling romantic more than super dressy and modern.  I kinda felt it was a really neat idea doing the wedding in the city, b/c it makes me feel like it’s a BIG event, and it’s exciting for people to drive in….

I think your rooftop options are TO DIE FOR and people would KILL to be able to book those locations!  Definitely something different to offer your guests, and I can just imagine the photographs you’ll have!!!!  Just work with the linens, lighting, centerpieces, etc to keep it less modern and more what you’re looking for – I think it would be great!!!

I think a rooftop wedding is VERY romantic! And, that building in your second pic is very Santa Fe “rustic” looking, so you can totally go the rustic way!

To me rustic does represent nature & woods. So you will want to bring natural & wooden elements into the setting, totally doable!

We’re having our wedding on a modern rooftop with a gorgeous view of the Chicago skyline. I completely empathize with you. I’m probably going to incorporate most of the rustic ideas for the shower instead.
