“This next phase of growth will be dedicated to fulfilling an even bigger mission for the company,” said Timothy Chi, chief executive and co-founder of WeddingWire.

The funds come from Spectrum Equity, a Boston-based private equity firm that has also invested in SeamlessWeb and Ancestry.com.

WeddingWire, which was founded five years ago as a resource for brides, has expanded to include other event-centric sites such as BirthdayWire.com and MitzvahWire.com.

The company has plans to move its headquarters to Chevy Chase by the end of this year.
