Wedding Wednesday: Designer Whitney Port’s Palm Springs Wedding


Whitney Port’s line Whitney Eve is one of my favorite brands we carry on because I love how effortless Whitney blends east and west coast vibes. It is edgy but pretty. Plus, I’ve been a fan of Whit’s since she was on the show The Hills. That show was my favorite-mostly for getting to see the behind-the-scenes of the girls working in the fashion industry. Then when Whitney moved to NYC and filmed The City, I mean I almost couldn’t handle it. That was right after I’d moved away from the city to Las Vegas and was missing it terribly. So fast forward some years and now we’re here, with Whitney marrying Tim Rosenman, a development exec at Lionsgate studios, on November 7th.

First off, let’s discuss that cool waterfall hem high low gown! The dress was designed by Ashi Studio and modeled after a chandelier from Venice and Florence, Italy. To embellish Port’s dress with off-white pearls, Ashi Studios used the 18th century beading technique called Zardozi along with silver embroidery. Port opted for a white shoe with a thick, clear heel and a sheer panel that has embroidered white flowers all over them.



Port and Rosenman co-designed their wedding bands with Tacori. “Whitney has a strong background in design and really wanted her wedding band designs to push the limits. She’s not scared of being untraditional or taking risks — she wanted a showstopper that was completely unique and special,” Tacori tells Us Weekly. Whit’s 3 rings total 6.5 carats.



The chic invitations were designed by Wedding Paper Divas, with calligraphy by Brown Fox Calligraphy. Port custom designed the palm frond silk robes for each one of the girls who got ready together.



Whitney walked down a grass aisle at Colony 29, an estate in the Palm Springs, California mountains. Whiney originally thought she’d get married on the beach and wear a slip dress like Cindy Crawford, but after rejecting 150 different venues, decided on the idyllic location. Her sister Ashley planned the event with her company BK Events. A major theme in everything it seems lately is pineapples, which the couple decorated with because it represents hospitality. There was no sit-down dinner, just food stations and drinks at eight lounge stations. “We wanted to create one long cocktail party with lots of dancing” says Port to US Weekly. The couples first dance song was Gerry Rafferty’s “Right Down the Line”. For the reception, Whitney changed into a feathered Marchesa frock. Congrats to the beautiful couple!
