We chose our name because we know wedding planning and mayhem tend to go hand in hand. We’re not going to sugarcoat it - planning a wedding is not easy, but with Wed Mayhem as your wedding wingman, you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll help you navigate the wedding planning process every step of the way and do everything but walk you down the aisle. Our all-in-one platform features articles and videos to inspire and empower you with the information you need to plan your wedding, as well as forums to connect you with an “I do crew” of other newly engaged couples.
At Wed Mayhem, we go straight to the experts themselves. With years of experience making weddings their workday, wedding vendors are the behind-the-scenes backbone of any swoon-worthy wedding. They love what they do, and in the name of love they want to help you have your dream wedding. Wed Mayhem gives them the platform to do so as our “wedding wingmen.” We produce and distribute high-quality content worthy of the in-the-know information shared by these amazing vendors. Meet our Wedding Wingmen!
They say your wedding should have something borrowed and something blue, but at Wed Mayhem we say choose what works for you. Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your spouse as a couple. At Wed Mayhem, we believe in championing weddings and love stories of all couples - regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. We pledge to make our content inclusive for the above so that Wed Mayhem can be a resource for all.
The idea for Wed Mayhem started during the pandemic, when weddings were at an all-time low and wedding planning anxiety at a major high. Like so many others, wedding photographer Vanessa Mir was forced to take a step back, and her heart went out to all the couples trying to plan their weddings in such uncertain times. She missed being behind the camera, but even more she missed being there for brides and grooms. While she loved sharing her tips, tricks, and advice on her YouTube channel, she knew she was only a piece of the puzzle. So she gathered a team to complete her vision.
All wedding vendors provide a service, but they often also take on the role of advisor, coach, and even therapist at times. It can be an intense job, but it’s all worth it for that magical moment when vendors come together as a team to pull off a spectacular wedding. Wed Mayhem was founded to emulate this magic online, as a virtual space where wedding vendors could share their insights and help couples plan weddings that are uniquely them.
Vanessa’s creative career started after receiving her BFA from Texas Tech University. She got her start in the wedding industry as a lead photographer and founder of Heirloomsnaps, a photography and videography company in Colorado. With nearly a decade’s worth of experience, she founded Wed Mayhem to showcase vendor expertise and to be a resource for couples. Outside of Wed Mayhem, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their three kids and hopes to expand the family with more animals. When she gets a moment of free time, you can find her watching the flowers bloom with a coffee and cookie in hand.
Rudy got her start in the wedding industry with Wed Mayhem after graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder with a major in strategic communication and a minor in journalism. She loves that she can ease your anxieties and share information to help you plan your biggest party yet. Outside of Wed Mayhem, she enjoys soaking up the Hawaiian sun in her new home and snacking on movie theater popcorn while watching “The Bachelor” franchise.
Zach kicked off his journey in the wedding industry three years ago as a photographer and videographer for Heirloomsnaps. At Wed Mayhem, he seeks to inform and inspire wedding vendors, newlyweds, and brides-to-be through entertaining and engaging visual storytelling. When he’s not behind the camera, you can find him buried in a book, cooking up a storm, or hiking.
