Bumble CEO Says I Do In Beautiful Moonlit Ceremony

How many ways can you say “I do”? Weddings are someone the most joyous occasions for all involved. From small and intimate, to large and luxurious, there are so many ways to celebrate that special day. Whitney Wofle, founder of dating app, Bumble spent an eventful weekend in Italy in preparation for her big day with family and friends. The ceremony, which took place in September, was beautifully set over the Amalfi coast in Positano, Italy.

Always in style, the entrepreneurs weekend wardrobe was left in the hands of wedding stylist Cynthia Cook. Her looks were a collection of some the most trending styles from the most popular names in the fashion industry. Event planning and venue selection were handled by Diana Sorensen, of Sugokuii Luxury Events, who wowed both the guest and couple with the lavish décor and beautiful venue.

On the big day, rain was in the forecast. Undeterred, the couple gathered their wedding party and spent the day indoors sipping some of Italy’s finest champagne and watched as the rain seemingly washed away any hopes of an outdoor wedding. When one of their wedding guests came running to tell them that she was certain the rain would clear up soon, the soon to be husband and wife quickly began pulling the final pieces of the ceremony together. With the help of their wedding party, the guests were seated on dry benches at 7:30 p.m.
