This is what happened to Whitney Wolfe, the CEO of Bumble, a dating app. Whitney Wolfe and Michael herd, the heir of Texas Oil tied the knot in a gorgeous wedding ceremony held at Villa Treville, Positano along the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The couple used the last name of the groom to come up with a customized wedding hashtag, #homeiswheretheherdis. Everything about the wedding was glamorous from the venue to the awesomely beautiful wedding gown from Oscar De La Renta and a breathtaking candle-lit evening party that offered guests with the rare chance of enjoying views of the romance-filled Italian coast.
After the wedding ceremony, Whitney Wolfe changed from her gown into an evening silky and cream-colored dress for the party. The evening party itself did not disappoint as it was pure happiness from good drinks, food as well as friends who graced the occasion. The venue for the reception had a canopy from lemon trees, which perfectly complimented the awesome lemon accents on the menus and dinner tables. The couple had a huge single-tier cake topped with fresh fruits like strawberries. The wedding couple had met in Aspen on Valentine’s Day three years back and had gotten engaged in July.
