Pop Up Weddings

Updated: May 11, 2021

Here it is, folks! A weekend of Pop-Up Weddings, with everything included, so that your wedding date remains the same, and your larger celebration can take place later!

We’ve given a lot of thought and planning to this idea for “elopement” or “pop-up” weddings, and we’re ready to become The Fox Valley and Chicago northwest suburban area’s Most Beautiful Choice for a Pop-Up Wedding!

If you’re looking for an elegantly-styled elopement wedding, with up to 25 of your closest friends and family, at a fraction of the cost of a full-day wedding, a Pop-Up wedding may be for you!

Here’s what it’s all about! A pop-up, or elopement wedding is a ninety-minute celebration, designed and styled completely by Elements Preserved, and held at The Loft of Elements Preserved, our urban, vintage-styled Loft Venue, in Elgin, IL. All of the details are taken care of, from start to finish, without the stress of you having to plan a thing! We include all the details that would be important to you, for a fraction of the typical price of a full-scale wedding.

What’s Included in a Pop-Up Wedding at The Loft of Elements Preserved?

  • Invitations to share, announcing your wedding day, lovingly created by some of our favorite stationers

  • A professional Officiant to perform your ceremony, which may be personalized to your wedding day wishes

  • A fresh-floral bouquet and boutonniere from one of our fave florists

  • Floral design accenting a beautiful backdrop we’ve selected from our inventory

  • Styling throughout our elegant venue, The Loft of Elements Preserved, with chairs for your ceremony area, upholstered seating pieces, and a thoroughly styled event space, using decor pieces from our vintage and specialty rentals loot.

  • A professional photographer who will capture all the details of your wedding day, during the ninety-minute event

  • A drink station for your guests to enjoy sparkling drinks while photos are being taken

  • A sweets table, complete with a couple’s cake, and desserts for your guests from a local bakery, all enjoyed on vintage china. What's a wedding without the sweets!

  • Champagne drinks for the couple, and a special send-off

  • Opportunity to invite up to 25 of your nearest and dearest

What’s Next?

Email us with the date and time that you’re interested in; we’ll check availability, and book a consultation, by phone, for you to chat with us!

We’ll provide you with a Rental Agreement, as we do with all of our Inventory and Event Rentals, and your 50% down payment and completed Rental Agreement will be required in order to hold your time slot. Your remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding date. Then, you’ll have time to choose your wedding day outfits, and pick up your Marriage License.

On Your Pop-Up Wedding Day

You and your guests arrive at the designated time and witness your wedding ceremony, followed by photos, desserts, and drinks. Following your wedding, you may wish to celebrate together at a local restaurant, at one of the nearby parks along the Fox River, or head out on your honeymoon.
