We always love it when we are able to get a sneak peek into celebrity’s weddings prior to their big day. Recently, former MTV star Whitney Port shared some gorgeous pictures of what her inspiration is for her wedding. We are so obsessed with this gorgeous boho-chic design. It is rustic and eclectic, elegant, and did we mention absolutely gorgeous! The white and green color palette along with the monochromatic centerpieces with all of the greenery completely took our breath away. Have a look for yourself and let us know what you think.
