No Cake, Sit-Down Dinner or Flower Centerpieces: Relive Every Detail of Whitney Port’s Modern Wedding

Cool News

Perhaps the most conventional, as well. 

The deeper she got into planning, the more certain Port was that she wanted a “modern take” on a more traditional affair, she told E! News. That meant leaning into a few quirky choices (their rehearsal dinner, for instance, was at a bowling alley, she told Green Wedding Shoes, “because Timmy loves to bowl!”), using social media to find a wedding photographer (“I was looking for someone with a different eye and posted about it on my Insta,” Port told The Knot of selecting Southern California-based Hannah Costello) and breaking from some long-established, but ultimately unnecessary, wedding rules. 

They opted out of having a cake, ordering bread pudding with brioche from Gjusta instead. Guests were asked to wear either black or, yes, even white to fully embrace the art deco of it all, she told The Knot, “and there was no sit-down dinner.” 

Rather than break up the momentum with a long, drawn-out meal, guests noshed on branzino, oysters, snow crab claws and choice picks from the couple’s bread bar and sipped from fresh coconuts and signature cocktails like the Martini & Rossi Prosecco and peach framboise “Little Whitty” at eight boho-style lounge vignettes.
