The Modern Rooftop Wedding!

I've been dreaming up something like this for awhile now. As a Wedding Coordinator living in Lancaster, PA I tend to see the same things. Don't get me wrong, barn weddings are beautiful but I personally have been in need of something a little different. I love a modern style with a neutral color pallet that can really make a simple accent pop. Give me all of the exposed brick, accent walls, and gold tones.

Rooftop venues seem to be the place to be! They are normally located in large cities and popping up everywhere for that matter. I saw a good amount of rooftop venues and restaurants when I was in Savannah, GA this past March. We are fortunate enough to have two rooftops right here in Lancaster City. One of them happens to be Yorgos which is located right in the heart of downtown Lancaster. Yorgos is one block away from the square and around the corner from Central Market. This spot is such a perfect city destination. In White Bridal Shop, Ream Jewelers, Lancaster Cupcake, and other wedding vendors are located on the same block as Yorgos (how convenient). Not only is it an event space, but it is a restaurant that serves two different types of food. The first floor is an American Pub style restaurant and the second floor serves Mediterranean cuisine. Both ethnics are available for events. The food is so yummy!

Contact me if you are looking to host a small wedding, bridal shower, or any type of party at Yorgos!

Let's talk about the details! This shoot included so many great elements. I had so much fun designing and styling this modern rooftop wedding. This allowed me to make my vision come to life and show off my designing capabilities! My own tastes came out a little in this styled shoot too. The style of this wedding was modern with acrylic/gold elements, and tropical vibes. A neutral color pallet allowed for the golds and tropical colors to pop!

I have all the heart eyes for this shoot! Head over to to see more pictures. I can't help but thank all of the amazing vendors that contributed their time and talent. Go give them so love by following them on Instagram!
