Words of Thanks from Jill’s clients…

Dearest Jill,

You are the BEST! Thank you for helping me and Cesar on our wedding planning & wedding day! The planning process was so hard, but you are so warm and calming, which is exactly what we needed from the beginning.

You made our wedding day so enjoyable! I can’t believe how much fun it was! It was a perfect evening and everyone had a wonderful time.

With love,

Beverly & Cesar

We are midway through planning our wedding and we have nothing but great things to say about Jill. She exceeds our expectations on a daily basis and successfully manages the challenges associated with planning a wedding for two busy professionals who live remotely and have a tendency to be over-absorbed in their work/unresponsive during the work week. In fact, we’re so pleased with our experience thus far that I thought it appropriate to give you a shout out on Twitter!

We had a full planning contract with Jill from Dream Group. She was amazing. All of our emails with questions (and there were a lot of them!) were answered immediately, even on the weekends.

[Jill was] amazing, and so is everyone else that we worked with from Dream Group.

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

I’m not sure I can describe just how wonderful Jill and Malissa (with help from Kelsey) were in helping with our wedding.

My main goal in working with DreamGroup was to be able to have fun on my wedding day and not worry about the details and they definitely made that happen. Our wedding was truly the best day ever.

With Jill and Malissa taking over for all the nitty gritty details and hard work, my now husband and I (and our families) were able to relax and really enjoy every second of our special day. They took care of absolutely everything, from arranging details with vendors, ensuring the set up was perfect, managing timing throughout the day, and packing up all the gifts/cards, decorations and leftover cake. Jill even packed up all of our personal decor items and drove them to my mom’s house the next day! Seriously above and beyond!

Although Jill was technically our day-of coordinator, she provided assistance all throughout the planning process – all 18 months of it! She was incredibly responsive to my emails and my many questions. With Jill’s support I actually had a great time planning the wedding (with little to no bridezilla moments) and I feel like we were in great hands throughout the whole process.

I would definitely recommend DreamGroup (especially Jill and Malissa) to other brides. And for grooms, my husband agrees – he says it was the best money we spent on the wedding!

Initially, I was somewhat hesitant about hiring a wedding coordinator. I thought it was an expense that wasn’t really a “must”. Now looking back, it was easily the best decision we made when it came to planning our wedding. From our first meeting with our coordinator, Jill Bryan, she totally put our minds at ease. Throughout the planning process, she was always easy to talk to, easy to reach, and an absolute pro! Jill and her assistant made our guests feel welcome and made the evening flow seamlessly. I can’t say enough good things about our experience with DreamGroup!

Our wedding coordinator (Jill) was amazing and worth every penny. Being that my husband and I had recently moved away from Vancouver, where our ceremony was being held, we needed someone to run everything the day of our wedding and Jill did just that.

During the planning process she responded very promptly to all of my emails and phone calls. On the day of the wedding I was able to just relax and focus on what was really important that day, which was the marriage. She also brought to my attention important details that had completely slipped my mind or that I was unaware of. This allowed me to take care of them well in advance of the big day thus reducing any anxiety leading up to the wedding.

I strongly recommend DreamGroup Productions for your wedding coordinating/planning needs.

Where do I even begin with Jill Bryan?

A few months before our wedding, I attended a friend’s wedding where I realized that there were SO many wedding day details that I hadn’t even thought of and decided to hire a ‘day of coordinator’ so that I didn’t have to worry about the details on our wedding day. BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Jill. She was professional, friendly, easy going, upbeat and our entire wedding day was flawless because of her attention to detail, intuition and work ethic.  She has impeccable intuition and was able to speak up for me when she could tell I wasn’t happy with something or may want something to be different.

She became my ‘go to’ person for every detail and I was able to rely on her for taking care of so many things on our wedding day so that I could actually sit back and enjoy the day that I had spent a year planning. When I panicked when one of our vendors was a bit late, a quick text to Jill and 2 minutes later the vendor called to say they were just pulling in. We had endless compliments from our friends and family on Jill’s service: from my mom getting scissors from her to cut a loose thread on her dress, to Jill packing up left over dessert for my dad to take home. She even transported all of our gifts and belongings to our hotel room!

There wasn’t a single detail overlooked and anytime I asked her about something, it was already taken care of. Thanks to Jill, I was able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the best day of my life without a single worry!

I urge all future couples to hire Jill! It was the best money we spent on the wedding by far!

THANK YOU AGAIN JILL!
