SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Love at first sight? That’s the way it happened for Whitney Port and fiancé Tim Rosenman.
“We were at his best friend’s birthday dinner and I sat across from him and actually felt love at first sight,” gushed Whitney.
Valentine’s Day is still a few days away but sparks were flying in Los Angeles yesterday, when Miss Port regaled a small group with her own romantic love story.
Wedding Paper Divas and Whitney Port, designer of fashion line Whitney Eve, partnered to collaborate on Port’s upcoming wedding and revealed some never-before-seen inspiration and details at an intimate bridal event, designed by celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss and held at Mari Vanna restaurant on Tuesday, Feb. 11. Miss Port also announced that she will be designing an exclusive wedding stationery collection for Wedding Paper Divas, which will evoke her contemporary, yet romantic California style and be available for purchase later this year.
Surrounded by close friends and family members, Miss Port got a first look at four specially designed inspiration boards, each with a distinct theme, offering unique options for her upcoming wedding. Miss Port’s sister, Ashley Port of BK Events, will be planning the affair and was also in attendance.
According to Miss Port, “Tim wants to be extremely involved in everything,” so the boards were developed by Wedding Paper Divas to demonstrate how Miss Port and fiancé, Tim Rosenman, might incorporate their collective style, personal touches and meaningful elements from their relationship into their big day.
Elements seen include favorite invitations, fabrics, patterns, florals, concepts for custom family crests and more. Wedding Paper Divas experts were on-hand at the event to offer etiquette advice, stationery tips and additional inspiration for Miss Port and her guests.
“This is such a special time for us and Wedding Paper Divas has helped us to find our voice and express ourselves as a couple, allowing us to share our own love story through every little detail,” said Whitney Port. “The personal, creative process has inspired me to design my own wedding stationery collection with Wedding Paper Divas, which I can’t wait to share later this year!”
Prior to the Tuesday event, Wedding Paper Divas worked one-on-one with Miss Port to translate her unique sense of style into her wedding vision. Together they created inspiration boards that revealed some of the early ideas and inspiration that will be showcased on her wedding day:
- Pastel Beach: Dreamy watercolors, traces of sea life, natural elements and unexpected details work hand-in-hand for a beachy-chic vibe with a soft, relaxed atmosphere and a polished yet effortless look
- Neon Mexico: Port can make her mark with vibrant pops of color, lush succulents and a few edgy elements accentuating every special detail, weaving a playful touch of sass throughout
- Boho Prep: Befitting of Port’s bohemian style, a unique mixture of statement patterns in neutral tones paired with the repeated use of a strong signature shade throughout the décor creates a bold and original look
- Vintage Traditional: Sophisticated, eclectic and romantic all in one; this look breathes new life into old fashioned tradition, sweeping florals and ornate details
Miss Port will design her own custom stationery line exclusively for Wedding Paper Divas. The collection will reflect her feminine style, chic California sensibility and elements of her own wedding details. Wedding Paper Divas will provide the custom stationery for Miss Port’s wedding, and will collaborate with the designer on a variety of items including save the dates, invitations, programs, menus and other creative décor.
“We are completely smitten with Whitney’s fearless style and her willingness to explore the unexpected,” said Amber Harrison, Wedding & Etiquette Maven at Wedding Paper Divas. “Those qualities have made her the perfect muse as we strive to help every couple make their big day reflect and celebrate their unique love story. The combination of our stationery expertise and products and Whitney’s upcoming collection will undoubtedly bring even more possibilities to engaged couples.”
