Real {Destination} Wedding ~ Izabella and Alex

From the groom's cool purple bowtie to the bumblebee honey dipper placecards, not to mention some of the most brilliant food styling we've ever seen, we can't get enough of this rustic farm wedding in upstate New York photographed by rock star photographer Kella MacPhee. Izabella and Alex were married at the beautiful Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a working farm whose award-winning restaurant features a menu created using all locally grown ingredients. The property's "Stone Barns" provided a picturesque backdrop, giving the event an English countryside feel and while the two said "I do", sheep grazed in nearby pastures. The property's herding dog joined in for pictures in the vast greenhouses where the industrial structure and rows of fresh produce helped create a series of spectacular images of Izabella and Alex.

Izabella wore a pretty strapless gown with a cascading ruffle on one side and a large blossom at the waist. She added another large white blossom to her hair and wore a pair of ruffled heels by Badgley Mischka. Alex dressed in a tailored gray suit with a violet bowtie and suspenders, while his groomsman wore a suit in lighter gray. Izabella's bridesmaid wore a cool strapless party dress in a gray damask pattern with a wide silvery-gray band at the hem and carried a bouquet of pale green hydrangea, white roses and deep green leaves. The ceremony was held outside the rustic barn where natural wood chairs were set on either side of an aisle strewn with hay and accented by bunches of vibrant yellow sunflowers. Izabella danced her way down the aisle carrying a sunny bouquet of yellow roses, craspedia, eucalyptus and white freesia wrapped in raffia. After the ceremony, Izabella and Alex explored Blue Hill with their photographer while guests enjoyed cocktail hour with a selection of hors d'oeuvres artfully served from wooden blocks. The reception continued indoors where the tables were covered in white linens and set with centerpieces of vibrant sunflowers, daisies and wildflowers. Dinner service began with a salad served on a wooden plank and continued through multiple courses. Menu cards were tied with green raffia, while table numbers were made of hand drawn farm animals and insects on paper with a laser-cut eyelet border. Wooden bumblebee honey dippers and jars of local honey were both placecards and a sweet take-home favor. To see more of Izabella and Alex's happy farm wedding, visit the Kella MacPhee blog!
