Having helped many people find their life partners through her dating app Bumble, it was now time for Whitney Wolfe, the Founder, and CEO of Bumble to find her match as well. She got married to Michael Herd in an epic, fashion-filled wedding held in Positano, Italy. However, it should be noted that the couple didn’t find each other through Bumble dating app. Their meeting was a different story altogether. Their first meeting was in 2013 in Aspen while they were both vacationing for Christmas. Their connection started when Michael Herd asked Whitney to teach him how to skydive and what followed is just a history.
Two years later in June 2015, Michael proposed to Whitney Wolfe in his ranch in Texas when she went to visit him. He proposed at sunset after they had had a horse ride. Whitney says it was an amazing experience to be proposed to at such a special place with only the two of them in the world. After the proposing, the couple went for a celebratory trip to Italy, and that is where they started their wedding plans. They set their wedding location in Positano and started looking for vendors to put the wedding plans into motion.
Cynthia Cook Smith from Cynthia Cook Brides was the first in the list. She is the one who styled Miss Wolfe in Oscar de la Renta, Saint Laurent, and Giambattista Valli. Next on the list was Sugokuii Events’ Diana Sorensen who handled everything during the wedding including booking of the amazing venue, Villa Tre Ville. The couple had a clear vision of their designated wedding. They envisioned it to be an unending party. Their welcome bags at the Villa Tre Ville were another celebration of their wedding destination. With the word “Limoncello Herd” hand-painted on the bags, nothing could be more fascinating than that. The bags also contained personalized gifts with their monogram on almost everything inside and outside.
Whitney’s wedding gown was couture, Oscar de la Renta made of corded rose lace featuring a four-foot-long train containing a scalloped trim. In addition to the gown, Whitney wore a cathedral-length veil, Marlo Laz earrings custom-made by her friend Jesse Lazowiski and Gianvito Rossi heels. God blessed their wedding by making it rain. It hadn’t rained for months, but on that day it did. In Italy, it is believed when it rains on your wedding day then it is a sign of fresh beginning, cleansing, and purity of marriage.
