The Tech Guru, Whitney Wolfe Had a Fairy-Tale-Worthy Nuptials

Whitney Wolfe, who is the founder and chief executive officer of Bumble, an online dating app, developed her career on assisting others to find their destined life partners. It is just fair that Wolfe could have a wedding day that is romantic and fairy-tale-worthy. Just recently, the technology guru together with her now-husband, Michael Herd, who is known to be a Texas oil heir, got married in a breathtaking ceremony, which took place at the luxurious Villa Treville situated in Positano along Amalfi Coast of southern Italy.

Wolfe and her new husband Herd played off of the last name of the groom for custom wedding hashtag of the couple, #homeiswheretheherdis. The Bumble bride certainly knows how she can create a buzz. The gorgeous destination wedding was extremely charming to see; from the bride’s stunning designer Gown by Oscar de la Renta to the venue that was lit by candles and gave the guests a great romantic Italian coast clear view, the whole affair was beautiful. In attendance, were Amber Venz Box and Sophia Amoruso, Wolfe’s fellow Girl Bosses.

Following the ceremony, the Bumble bride changed and wore a slip dress that was silky and cream-colored for an evening of pure joy that was filled with good food, friends, and drinks. A lemon-tree canopy covered the reception venue, complementing the lemon accents that were on the menus and dinner tables. The couple chose a huge, one-tier wedding cake that was topped with fresh fruits and strawberries.

While in school, Wolfe majored in IS (International Studies) at the Southern Methodist University (SMU). She created Bumble app in 2014, which allows women to start a conversation with other online matches. Bumble is headquartered in Austin, Texas, in the United States. She received the 2014 award for the thirty Most Important Women Under Thirty in Tech by Business Insider. Wolfe was listed among the 2016 Elle’s Women in Tech. Bumble BFF, is a feature update that allows users of the app to use the same algorithms of swiping plus matching for friendship rather than dating.

Bumble BIZZ is the latest addition to the brand, its cooler, quicker alternative to LinkedIn. It’s a location-based swiping app aiming to introduce women to local projects and job opportunities instead of dating. The sight of Wolfe is now set on an issue that is bigger; she wants to tackle the tech’s sexism problem, that’s why Bumble BIZZ was created.
