We've seen our fair share of fresh ideas around these parts so it's safe to say that when something brand new makes it's way across our desks, we get pretty excited. Case in point: this wedding's approach to bridesmaids. Instead of following tradition, our bride let her girlfriends wear whatever they desired and gifted them each with a beautiful bouquet for one gorgeous group photo in the gardens. It's unique, ultra chic and oh so sweet and we're 100% on board. See this pic - and all the rest by Rebecca Yale - right this way! From Rebecca Yale... Emma and Izzet were married on a beautiful summer afternoon in an intimate gathering of friends and family at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York. The couple threw a large fete for friends and family in Turkey, where they both have family, but decided to have a small luncheon gathering to celebrate in their new home, New York.The bride got ready with the help of a friend and her aunt as they nibbled on delicious pastries and fresh fruit, all from the farm. The bride opted for loose and natural curls, perfect for the farm setting, pinned back with fresh flowers that complimented her beautiful white and green bouquet. After sharing a first look in the garden, the bride and groom were joined by their family for portraits and the ketubah signing before their ceremony. They said their "I do's" under a beautiful lush chuppah of greenery followed by a private moment to themselves walking the gardens for a few portraits before joining their guests for cocktail hour. Instead of having traditional bridesmaids, the bride opted to honor her friends by letting them wear whatever they wanted and gifting them each a bouquet for a group photo of them all together in the gardens.Guests enjoyed a three course gourmet meal from the farm followed by cake decorated with white and green flowers. The bride and groom paid homage to their British roots by gifting their guests truffles and Wedding Breakfast Tea from Fortnum & Mason as a wedding favor.
