sefardim have the chupa indoors sometimes –  m.r. Feb 27 at 20:18
    
@sam - nor do many yekkes. –  Danny Schoemann Mar 3 at 13:28
    
@m.r. - so do others, including Yekkes and the Atlanta "Beth Jacob" shul, to name a few. –  Danny Schoemann Mar 3 at 13:28

A few that come to mind. By the Sefardic wedding the Chasan makes a Shehechiyanu and puts on a new Talis under the Chupa, which is not done by the Ashkenazim. By the Sefardic wedding the Chasan leaves the Chupa and goes to greet the Kalla as she is coming down the aisle, which is not done by the Ashkenazim.

I've seen both of these at Ashkenazi weddings (different ones). –  Double AA Feb 27 at 17:57
