Modern Luxury Ideas for a Timeless Elopement

Eloping in style has become a recent wedding trend, but I definitely think these chic and intimate celebrations are here to stay! Aisle Society was inspired by the dramatic skyline of Chicago to add a touch of modern luxury to this timeless city elopement! Timeless accessories by Movado from Kay Jewelers offered a sophisticated and stylish way to cap off the elegant elopement!

One of the advantages of a small wedding day has to be the intimacy – the bride and groom had a chance to dress for their wedding day together, allowing them to create incredibly special memories and take in the significance of the day. After helping each other with the finishing touches to their wedding day attire, the bride presented her husband-to-be with a meaningful gift to mark the occasion – a Movado watch from Kay Jewelers, an heirloom piece that would serve as a timeless reminder of the biggest day of their lives together. The modern black design accented the classic lines of his tux and black tie, with a petite blushing bride protea boutonniere to play up the romance.

Everything about the couples’ style drew inspiration from the luxe city surroundings. While the groom opted for a classic black tie look, the bride chose a dramatic sequin wedding dress from Alyssa Kristin, accenting the beaded column gown with a slim Movado bracelet style watch to add a touch of modern luxury. She surprised her bridesmaid with a Kay Jewelers rose gold watch as a nod to their history together and in thanks for all of her help in planning the wedding!

Stylishly attired, the couple exchanged vows on the balcony of The Gwen Chicago, with a dramatic cityscape serving as the backdrop to their ceremony. Floral designer The Petal added a lush touch to the urban setting with greenery and white flowers to play off the modern styling of the bridal party. The intimate group celebrated with a champagne toast to cap off the momentous day!
