From breathtaking views to hidden gems, from natural lighting to blank slates, rooftops make the perfect wedding venue. When you are already walking on air from finding your soulmate, what is more fitting than a rooftop wedding to take that first dance? An OVER-THE-TOP, rooftop wedding!

This beautiful bride chose a stunning dress to match the grandeur of her big day above the clouds. The princess-style gown with sheer-lace embellishments across the bodice and down the sleeves screams one word: REGAL.
What’s a royal wedding without the bride’s posh posse? The extravagant blooms complimented their soft blush-toned dresses perfectly.
The groom’s entourage sported Mad Men classic attire – tailored three-piece black tuxedos with satin pocket squares for a clean elegant look.
This wedding backdrop at the Chateau Bellevue is so picturesque. The venue not only provided breathtaking rooftop views, but the scenery was Romanesque-inspired, elegant, and so dreamy.

2. A Romantic Rooftop Wedding at Historic Chicago Warehouse
This historic Chicago landmark building, mixed with original woodwork and new modern finishes, makes for a great wedding venue enriched with Chicagoan culture! The bride and groom opted for a neutral palette, using shades of whites, greens, and wooden chairs to warm up the interior.
Adorned with tear-drop earrings and a chic white-rose bouquet, this gorgeous bride was the epitome of classy elegance!
Could there be a better wedding backdrop than Downtown Chicago’s city view? As this dashing groom spins his gorgeous bride in the middle of this bustling city, we aren’t able to tell the difference between reality and romantic dreams!
This natural beauty allowed her bridesmaids to pick their own dresses within a particular color range. Her bridesmaids were able to find dress styles that flattered their figures: high neck, halter, spaghetti strap, or A-line. Each bridesmaid held a lovely leafy bouquet.
Now that is a good-looking crew! The groom and his groomsmen looked sharp with their traditional black-and-white tuxedos.
The beautiful newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss. The simplicity of the green and white-flowered arch against the magnificence of the arched windows with stained glass is just spectacular! It’s no surprise that this couple was literally and figuratively floating atop the Chicago skyline!
You can’t showcase an over-the-top wedding without an official wedding hashtag! Guests were encouraged to snap away and tag the Newlyweds in their photos.
Fancy wedding appetizers are a MUST during Cocktail hour. Look at this colorful presentation. If you weren’t hungry before, you must be now.
This wedding venue was the perfect blend of Art Deco meets vintage elegance. Both the greenery and wood add a touch of warmth while making the open space look very inviting. The industrial lighting, original brick, and high ceilings gave the space an indoor/outdoor feel.
The secret component of adding a romantic feel to any space? Candles! Candlelit tables add romance and sophistication to every wedding. The candles on this table were the stars of the show as the table setting was so simple and effortless.
As the bride and groom shared their first dance, it was difficult not to stare at the bride’s beautiful gown. The details of the back including the illusion keyhole with floral designs and covered buttons were so intricate and ornate.
For 2019 weddings, over-the-top dessert bars are all the rage.
From serving cupcakes to cookie dough balls, and from traditional cakes to red-velvet cake pops, guests were able to load up on these delicious bite-sized treats, ending the night on a sweet note.
