Wedding Planning All In One Place
Wedspire was founded in Toronto, Canada, by Afeisha and Kevon, a bride and groom who married in 2010 and wanted to renew their wedding vows for their 5th year anniversary with a big celebration.
They browsed a litany of wedding blogs, websites & bridal magazines, and felt overwhelmed. They found no easy way to source, vet and purchase wedding products and services in one spot. Determined to help couples seamlessly facilitate planning their big day, they created Wedspire.
Naturally, their unbreakable bond made it very easy to pursue a business partnership, melding their strengths and areas of expertise—Kevon’s background in smart system design leads platform development, and Afeisha’s 10+ years of domain expertise drives the vision, and leads product & biz development.
Founders: Afeisha James-Kipps + Kevon Kipps
