Rooftop Wedding Soiree Ideas From Fondly Forever Wedding Photography

A rooftop reception sounds completely lovely, doesn’t it? Especially in these late days of summer. Fondly Forever Photography and Twelve Events designed this romantic set up to give you a little late summer inspiration.

We love all the burlap details; even the wedding bouquet has handmade burlap leaves. We especially appreciate that all the ideas are easy and can easily be replicated. Be sure to see the entire inspirational shoot by clicking here.

From Twelve Events:

“I wanted to incorporate different textures into the theme and bring in burlap details. I knew I wanted to make an invitation with a burlap backing and, from there, different key pieces from the shoot were made out of burlap. The HIS and HERS signs, the votive candles and the flags on the stir sticks were all made of burlap. For the tablescape I wanted to make a bold statement. The china was a vintage collection that I scored right before the shoot!

I wanted to bring in bold colors for the flowers, so incorporating purple Lisanthiums, Billy Balls, deep pink peonies and ranunculus was an even balance without making it overly loud. Another detail I added was burlap leaves to the bouquet (yes, made from burlap!).”
