Shameless star Emmy Rossum's genius wedding bouquet idea gives us bride goals

Actress looked every inch the angelic bride in Carolina Herrera - and her idea for what to do with her beautiful wedding blooms after the big day was absolutely heaven-sent!

Actress Emmy Rossum tied the knot with creator of hit TV series Mr. Robot this weekend, looking nothing short of spectacular, and her genius idea for her wedding flowers has given many brides-to-be some wonderful inspiration.

The 30-year-old bride took to photo-sharing site Instagram yesterday to share her stunning wedding photos with eagerly awaiting fans, and also divulged the story of just what happened to her breathtaking blooms once she was done with them.

Wearing a classic, custom-made off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress and a dramatic, embellished cathedral length veil, the star looked every inch the stylish bride as she posed for formal photos with her producer/director hubby Sam Esmail.

The Hollywood stars said their vows beneath an extravagant floral arch, which they later had repurposed and sent to the patients of Mount Sinai Hospital.

Enlisting the services of company Repeat Roses, the spectacular ceremony display was expertly transformed into bouquets before being donated to the local hospital.

Adding photos of the beautiful blooms as they arrived at reception to her wedding day Instagram story, the bride seemed delighted with the service, which repurposes flowers from weddings and other occasions so that they don't go to waste.

Emmy, 30, and Sam, 39, who worked together on the 2014 film Comet, got engaged in August 2015 after two years of dating.

They tied the knot in an elegant ceremony at the Central Synagogue in New York City on Sunday.

Their wedding was thought to have been an intimate affair, however the guest list included Hollywood heavy-hitters such as Robert Downey Jr., William H. Macy, Christian Slater and Hilary Swank, among others.

The bride was incredibly relaxed on the run up to the big day, saying she "didn't care" what her dress looked like, nor was she fretting about any element of the decor either.

"I don't really care what the plates look like," she said. "I don't really care what the invitation looks like. The only thing that's really important to me is that we get married and there's some kind of party."
