As the founder and chief executive officer of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe knows quite a bit about dating. She’s now found her own success as she recently celebrated her wedding day on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The wedding was held in a fairy-tale style that included expansive views of the coast and the Meditteranean Sea. The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Villa Treville which is located within the town of Positano.
The guy that Whitney Wolfe married is Michael Herd who is from Texas. He is the air to an oil fortune and they make their home in Austin, Texas. For the wedding, they created a hashtag for Twitter which was #homeiswheretheherdis which was a pun on her new husband’s last name.
At her wedding ceremony, Whitney Wolfe wore a dress that was designed by Oscar De La Renta. When the ceremony was completed she changed into a dress which was cream-colored. The newlyweds and their guests were treated to a luxurious meal which included a range of great food and drinks.
It was on Valentine’s Day in 2014 that Whitney Wolfe had met Michael Herd. They became engaged in July of 2016. They met in Aspen, Colorado and it’s entirely possible it was through the app Bumble that they first became acquainted.
Bumble is a smartphone app which is available for both Android and iPhones. It only allows women to initiate contact and so men can only respond to contact requests. This makes women both feel safer and more able to evade unwanted attention and requests. The app was launched in September 2014 and is now one of the biggest dating apps on the market.
