Whitney Wolfe, founder and CEO of online dating app Bumble, built her career on helping others find "the one." It's only fair that she would have a romantic, fairy-tale-worthy wedding day!
Last weekend, the tech guru and her now-husband, Texas oil heir Michael Herd, tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at the Villa Treville in Positano along the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The couple played off of the groom's last name for their custom wedding hashtag, #homeiswheretheherdis. The beautiful destination wedding was a sight for sore eyes: From the bride's breathtaking Oscar De La Renta gown to the candle-lit venue that gave guests a clear view of the romantic Italian coast, the entire affair was swoon-inducing.
Following the ceremony, the bride changed into a silky, cream-colored slip dress for an evening of what looks like pure happiness in the form of good drinks, food, and friends. The reception venue was covered by a canopy of lemon trees, which complimented the lemon accents on the dinner tables and menus. The couple chose a massive, single-tier wedding cake topped with fresh strawberries and other fruits.
According to Page Six, the two first met three years ago on Valentine’s Day in Aspen (Bumble, anyone?) and got engaged last July.
Wolfe got her start in the dating app industry back in 2012 when she helped co-found her now-competitor app, Tinder. After leaving the company, she set out to create an app that would give women more control in online dating. In 2014, she created Bumble, which exclusively allows women to initiate conversation with their online matches. Wolfe was awarded Business Insider's 30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech in 2014 and was named one of Elle's Women in Tech in 2016.
