Carrie and Joe tie the Knot at Stone Barns

After getting ready at Essex House in New York City, Carrie and her family headed up to Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Located an hour from the city Carrie and Joe who are both foodies chose the location as a place to make their family and friends feel comfortable and because they knew the food would be delicious.
Luckily they had hired the amazing event designer and planner James Abel so when they woke up in the morning to discover it was raining, their plans for an outdoor ceremony had to change. With out any fuss James oversaw all the details as the chairs and flowers were moved to a new location inside the barn.
At the end of the ceremony the rain stopped and the guests followed the newly weds out onto the courtyard where everyone mingled and nibbled on fresh veggie appetizers grown on the farm.
Later everyone went up stairs for dinner and dancing.
I loved the wild flowers. They were delicate and colourful. James had arranged them in old glass vases of different shapes and sizes.
Carrie's dress was beautiful. It was made by Oscar de la Renta.
