While the Bumble app was designed to help users find their true life partner, the Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe has met her match. The Tech entrepreneur married the Texas oil heir Michael Herd in a beautiful lavish ceremony conducted at the Villa Treville in Positano along the Amalfi Coast last weekend. The couple narrated their nuptials on Instagram with the hashtag #homeiswheretheherdis. The bride was in an awe-inspiring Oscar de la Renta gown for the official wedding ceremony and for the reception she wore a cream dress.
The couple first met in 2013 while they were both on Christmas vacation in Aspen. The two lovebirds connected near the slopes when Michael confessed to Whitney Wolfe that he did not know how to ski and wanted Whitney to teach him, but he was a pro skier, and that’s how their love story began.
Whitney Wolfe was born in 1988 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She attended Southern Methodist University and graduated with a degree in International Studies. She is now the founder and the CEO of Bumble.

Bumble is a dating app that was founded and run by Whitney Wolfe. The Bumble offices are headquartered in Austin, Texas. This is the only dating app that allows women to initiate the first contact with men they are interested in. This dating app has grown tremendously since its inception and had over 20 million registered users worldwide, and over 50,000 new users keep joining the dating app every day. Bumble also features the Bumble BFF a platform where you can meet a new best friend, wing woman, partner in crime or workout partner. The company recently launched Bumble Bizz which enables professional mentoring and networking.
With Bumble, Wolfe wanted to transform the way dating took place on the World Wide Web. Unlike other dating apps, men cannot send the initial message after a matchup. Giving the women more power helps to take pressure off the man from thinking that he needs to do something aggressive or unique and allow the woman to drive the conversation. This results in conversations that are more respective, less aggressive and can turn into a more meaningful and lasting relationship. Bumble gives women control to take charge of the conversation and direct it as they want and more
