ALLEGRA & BILLY

Great stories last a lifetime. 

Allegra and Billy added frolic to the bucolic by choosing their farm as the backdrop to their nuptials. Spectacular weather christened this casual-deluxe outdoor fête.

Chic and whimsical, Allegra’s Carolina Herrera dress unequivocally trumpets her vibe and style. Allegra’s son, Henry, fulfilled best-man duties.

First course: at long farm (what else?) tables, garden-fresh tomato napoleons filled with stracciatella and topped with hyper-local organic greens from Gilbertie’s farm, accented by a fig balsamic swag. And for some rustic respite, take a breather in an ad-hoc lounge of hay bales and quilts, after dancing to tantalizing tunes supplied by Hal Prince Entertainment.
