As founder and CEO of Bumble, currently one of the most popular dating apps, Whitney Wolfe has been helping people find someone to love since the company got its start in 2014. On September 2, she made her own love connection by tying the knot with her beau of two years, Texas oil heir Michael Herd. And this was no modest affair, as the couple exchanged vows in a luxurious ceremony set on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast.
The wedding was held at the Villa Treville in Positano, a very scenic and charming village along the coast that is known as a popular holiday destination. Set along a seaside cliff, Villa Treville’s amazing views of the picturesque Italian village and the Salerno Gulf of the Tyrrhenian Sea was the perfect spot for the couple’s special day. Lit up with candles to create just the right atmosphere, the outdoor wedding used the sea as a stunning backdrop to ceremony.
Wolfe wore a breathtaking white lace form-fitting gown made by Oscar de la Renta, which was accompanied by a gorgeous white lace train. The lace patterns were exquisitely stitched to provide a simple, yet very elegant look. The bride looked every bit the part of a fairy tale princess.
The reception was held outside in a lemon tree orchard. The trees and lit candles provided an amazing ambiance, as guests dined on tables set with gold-rimmed plates, pink napkins, and gold flatware. The single-tier wedding cake was topped with lots of fresh strawberries and other delicious fruit.
Wolfe is widely known as one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the world. Since graduating from Southern Methodist University, she has been involved in many successful startups. Most of her success can be attributed to Bumble, which she founded in 2014 as the first dating app geared towards women. Bumble gives women looking for companions control over initiating conversation. Before Bumble, women had become tired of being harassed by suitors on other dating apps. Bumble gives women the power.
One of the more popular features of Bumble is its Bumble BFF mode, which allows women to filter out those looking for romantic relationships and instead reveals those looking for friendship. This feature is great for helping women in new areas find friends who are similar quickly. Coming in Fall 2017, Wolfe is unveiling Bumble Bizz, which is an extension designed to help women network with other female professionals. The idea is for women to connect with other women in their industry and perhaps seek out or become mentors.
