Emmy Rossum Found A Heartwarming Way To Reuse Her Wedding Flowers

It would be a shame if the "Shameless" actress's gorgeous florals went to waste.

Emmy Rossum found a beautiful way to give her wedding flowers a second life.

Over Memorial Day weekend, the “Shameless” actress tied the knot with “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail in New York City. On Wednesday, the bride revealed that she donated her flowers to Repeat Roses, an organization that picks up arrangements after the event, repurposes them and then delivers them to hospitals, nursing homes and other places where they’ll provide some comfort and happiness.

“Thank you @RepeatRoses,” Rossum wrote on her Instagram Story. “@RepeatRoses brought these and many more to Mount Sinai hospital. [The company] repurposes flowers from weddings and events so they don’t go to waste.”

Repeat Roses founder Jennifer Grove told The Knot that the combination of garden roses, ranunculus and peonies from the couple’s wedding created a number of stunning arrangements for the patients and staff at the hospital. 

“[Emmy and Sam] graciously donated their reception table centerpieces, which we repurposed overnight into 28 arrangements,” Grove told The Knot. “[The flowers were] delivered first thing the next morning to the Phyllis and Lee Coffey Geriatrics Department at the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mt. Sinai Hospital.”

“We love their love story and are so thrilled they started their new chapter as newlyweds on a sweet note of kindness by giving back to the local community,” Grove added.

Rossum and Esmail said their “I dos” Sunday at Central Synagogue in Manhattan followed by a reception at the Guggenheim Museum. On the big day, the bride ― who donned an off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera gown ― was joined by her “Shameless” costars, including William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Shanola Hampton and Isidora Goreshter.
