The chief executive officer of the dating app Bumble, Whitney Wolfe, has made a career out of hooking people up. She has now married herself in a ceremony on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The wedding took place at the Villa Treville in the town of Positano. Her new husband in Michael Herd, the heir to a Texas oil fortune.
Whitney Wolfe wore a wedding dress that was designed by Oscar De La Renta. The romantic ceremony took place at a venue that was lit by candle light and gave an amazing view of the coast of Italy. After the ceremony, she changed into a slip dress and joined her husband and guests where they had very good drinks and food. The air was scented by lemon trees at the venue which matched the lemon flavors in several of the dishes and desserts that were served to the guests. The newly wedded couple’s cake was a single-tier that included strawberries and a number of other fruits.
It was in September of 2014 that Whitney Wolfe launched Bumble. This app is different than other apps in that only women can initiate contact with others. This allows women to have far better control over who contacts them and makes them feel much more in control and safer. The app has been very successful and is now used by many women in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
The success that Whitney Wolfe has had in the technology industry has won her acknowledgment of her abilities. She was listed as one of the 30 Most Important Women Under 30 in Tech by Business Insider. She was also acknowledged as a successful executive and innovator by both Elle’s Women in Tech as well as Forbes.
Whitney Wolfe grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is a graduate of Southern Methodist University and holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies. She got her start in entrepreneurship early, starting her first business when she was just 19 years old. Her first business involved selling bamboo tote bags. Some of the proceeds from every sale were used to help those people who had suffered from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
