There are lavish weddings, and then there are weddings that redefine lavish. Bumble Founder and CEO, Whitney Wolfe’s wedding redefined lavish in its entirety. Her wedding to Michael Herd was not just any other wedding. It included arena-style seating and six designer outfit changes. The nuptials of Whitney Wolfe and Herd took place at Villa Tre Ville on the Amalfi coast in September. The wedding managed to keep to a minimum, the social media coverage. Wolfe enlisted the services of wedding stylist extraordinaire, Cynthia Cook Smith, responsible most of The Hamptons and St. Barth’s lavish weddings. She was responsible for curating the looks of the four-day-event that redefined grandeur. The first day of the even saw Wolfe wear couture Giambattista Valli dress.
On Friday, Wolfe wore a blue silk Oscar de la Renta dress during the day and Saint Laurent sequined dress during that evening. The piece de resistance of her big day was the Cotoured lace Oscar de la Renta gown with a four-foot train. It was magnificent. Delphine Manivet dress was meant for the dinner after the ceremony. Wolfe wore Naeem Khan dress for her evening dance. Suffice to say, Whitney Wolfe became the new wedding muse, and the several dress changes just blew everyone away.
