My husband and I worked with Brynn Belisle from DreamGroup as our “Day of” Wedding Coordinator. She was that and so much more! I cannot thank or praise her enough. She was very available to me at all times and answered all my questions, pointed me in the right direction for vendors, helped me with details that I had not thought of and handled my last minute panic when problems arose.

She was always calm, capable and able to take control of the situation with strength and grace. Brynn was able to take my vision for the set up on the day and make it reality. Several aspects I gave her no direction but from working with me, she was able to style it perfectly! I received so many compliments regarding Brynn from my family and guests on my wedding day. They loved that she kept the day easy and our tight schedule rolling always with a friendly smile.

I will be always grateful to Brynn and DreamGroup for helping me make my vision a reality!

Malissa was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. I had Malissa take over a few months before the wedding and she provided excellent day-of coordination to ensure the wedding/reception day ran smoothly.

Malissa took all of my stresses away on my wedding day and I’m so glad I went with DreamGroup Productions. She was very warm, friendly and very fun and professional.

Thanks to DreamGroup and Malissa, my wedding day ran smoothly and turned out beautifully!

Kelsey from DreamGroup Productions was an absolute blessing for our wedding! The best money we spent, by far, was in hiring her to help guide us through our big day.

We went for the ‘day-of’ coordinating package, but let me tell you, this comes with so much more than just coordination on the day of. From a full pre-wedding interview (where Kelsey will ask you about important things you won’t have even thought of!), through to meetings, contact with vendors, attendance at the rehearsal, and attendance through the whole big day, ‘day-of’ is so much more!

Kelsey, through every step of the process, was friendly and very professional. She helped me keep my nerves in check and was there to help manage the last-minute details as they appeared unexpectedly.

I could not recommend her services enough – if you’re a bride in need of help coordinating her big day you cannot go wrong with Kelsey and DreamGroup Productions. The cost is an absolute bargain for the service you receive!

A warm hola Jessie,

Both José and I are finally enjoying a slow morning, savouring our cup of coffee on the hotel balcony in Las Ramblas. We were just talking about our wedding day, already reminiscing and wishing it all back. José mentioned to me that he felt like you blended in. When I asked what he meant by that, he said that he could sense your presence in how everything went incredibly smoothly, but he didn’t feel like there was a stranger or an employee at our wedding. You blended in with our family and guests, and I couldn’t agree with him more.

We appreciate every part you’ve had during our special day – from managing all our vendors weeks before the day, and to moving the welcome sign and seating chart around the venue to make sure it aligned with the scheduled activities (I watched you and Alexa hustling).

You were truly a pillar in how our day flowed like a stream, but the romance and the intimacy never escaped.

You’ll always be in our stories when we reminisce about our wedding – we’ll always cherish that.

I got married recently and Kelsey Mackay-Smith was my coordinator. From the moment we met in our kick of meeting almost a year ago, she has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was she knowledgeable and professional, she genuinely cares in the day and wants to ensure everything is perfect.

She is highly organized, and literally has every detail written down in some form of excel spread-sheet or gant chart, and had excellent referrals and recommendations, where I might have not known or missed. On the day of the wedding, we didn’t need to do anything but show up, everything else was taken care of. She is also a rockstar human, just so nice! I would recommend her (and dream group) to anyone. We had a lot of fun together this summer (she also helped my best friend on her wedding a few weeks before mine).

Thanks for everything!

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.

Leading up to the event, Jill had to be replaced by Malissa. Malissa was also very professional and very attentive, and made our wedding run very smoothly on the day.

They are both amazing, and so is everyone else that we worked with from Dream Group.

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

DreamGroup was fantastic! They were extremely organized and had great tools and resources that helped us plan our wedding.

Raphaela was absolutely fantastic! She was so calm, resourceful and fun to work with. When we had trouble finding certain vendors she was able to provide us with suggestions that fit our budget and personality.

I can’t imagine how our day would have gone if we didn’t have Raphaela’s help. The day of the wedding we were able to have fun and enjoy ourselves because we knew she would take care of everything.

Where do I begin. We are over the moon thrilled with the service we received from DreamGroup Planners.

Malissa Moniz was our main coordinator, as well as assistants Vanessa, Nicole, and Raphael. These girls not only went above and beyond for every single issue or situation thrown their way, but most importantly they made our day run so smooth and organized. They were by far the best money spent on this wedding.

I don’t have enough room to write my amazing experience I had working directly with Malissa. From emails, phone calls, meetings, her own tips, and suggestions, the list goes on and on. She is so amazing at what she does, I wouldn’t have done my wedding without her!

Thank you DreamGroup- you helped make our wedding more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed! XO

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!

My wedding planner at DreamGroup was Amanda Smith. She was absolutely amazing. There was nothing I needed to worry about on the wedding day.

Amanda took care of everything and the wedding day flowed flawlessly. That was due to her dedication, knowledge and ability. She truly loves being a wedding planner and that shines through in everything she does.

Never in a million years did I imagine how important it would be to have a coordinator to put all the details together. I am extremely grateful to Amanda and DreamGroup for making my daughter’s wedding appear seamless throughout.

If you are considering hiring a wedding planner or day-of coordinator don’t hesitate to hire DreamGroup. I give them a 10 out of 10.

I wanted to send you a huge thank you for all you did to make our children’s wedding such an incredible one. The day was amazing and everyone is still talking about what a unique wedding it was and how much fun they had.

Thank you so much for all you did to make the day as stress free as it was. I know without you, it would have been a much different day.

I think you outdid yourself to ensure the day matched the dream for the kids – so thank you so very much for that. You are officially part of the family!

Thank you again so much!!!

We chose Dreamgroup after a few interviews with a few other planners. Our planner’s eagerness and willingness to meet us at our initial location of choice really had us at hello! We were a long distance couple with very busy schedules (one from US and one from outside Vancouver), so someone who was willing to be very flexible with meeting/planning date’s was very important to us.

DreamGroup was very efficient and effective on our use of time while we were in town for wedding planning, having all the vendor meetings lined up and options set for us to choose from. Email communication was also very helpful and they were always available- even by Skype.

As for the wedding and reception, everything went off without any major problems as seamlessly as I could have imagined.

The principal planner also checked in a few times throughout the planning period to make sure everything was going well.

Overall, very happy and pleased at how everything turned out. Very good service, could not have had the amazing wedding we dreamed of without DreamGroup’s planning.

DreamGroup was nothing short of amazing!

My husband and I are from Edmonton and we worked with DreamGroup remotely to plan our wedding in Vancouver. They assembled a team of outstanding vendors and went above and beyond for the entire year and a half of our planning process.

The day of the wedding the team ensured the day went off with out a hitch and allowed my husband and I to just sit back, drink champagne and be in love.

I would recommend DreamGroup a 1000 times over, Thanks a billion!!

Christie is the best wedding planner out there! We worked together on our dream wedding for over a year. During that time, she coordinated everything and pushed us forward with a detailed schedule. She kept us in good shape and timing and kept very good track of all the expenses incurred during this time.

Without Christie, our wedding would not have flowed so smoothly. She was always very patient and excited about the upcoming events and encouraged us when we felt frustrated. She always acts in the best interest of her clients and provided us with professional and personal opinions.

Our wedding had 75% out of town guests and Christie was able to coordinate hotels, transportation, vendors all perfectly. She even added a table for us and contacted all the vendors to make the necessary changes – 3 days before the wedding.

Christie, you are amazing and I would strongly recommend everyone to use you as wedding planner!

Patrick & Elaine

Choosing Christie as our wedding planner was the best decision we made.

We had only around three months to plan for our wedding, yet the iteration of our wedding was a dream come true for both of us. Our friends and family were all amazed with the decorations and proceedings of our wedding, and many expressed that our wedding was one of the best they’ve attended. Everything was well planned and went smoothly on the wedding day, and all this was due to Christie and her team’s dedicated hard-work.

The entire wedding planning with Christie was relaxed, enjoyable, and productive. For every question and idea we and our family came up with, Christie always had something to answer back and fulfill our vision. She was always supportive of our decisions and eager to listen to our ideas.

Simply put, our wedding would not have occurred so perfectly without Christie’s help and suggestions.

Thank you very much Christie!

Christie was a dream come true for us! The moment we met her, we instantly felt comfortable and excited about all the amazing opportunities for our big day!

She made sure that we never felt overwhelmed by the amount of work in front of us and understood how important every little decision was for us. When emotions got high and we were trying to make decisions about the wedding, Christie always stayed calm, cool and collected.

I am a designer so had big ideas for my wedding vision and she knew just the vendors to connect us with to make it happen. She supported us in executing our dream wedding down to every last detail. I can’t describe how overwhelmed I felt when I walked down the aisle, danced into the reception or finished off the night on the stage singing “Journey” with the band. Our day was everything I dreamed.

So many of our guests have shared with us that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been too. And we think so too!

Thank you Christie!

Where do I even begin to review Jill?

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.

Although she was a “day of co-ordinator”, she was in touch with me months in advance to go over every detail of our day, answer any questions we had or give her advice on anything we needed. She also attended our rehearsal where she was vital to keep things organized and efficient. 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 leftover 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!

Jill & DreamGroup,

We would like to take a moment to write you a letter of Thanks for doing a great job on our special day.  Jill, you truly made our day go without a hitch!  I know (heard) that there were some technical difficulties with sound right before the ceremony and the venue had set up the ceremony chairs in the wrong arrangement; thank you for quickly diffusing these issues and making the day seem seamless!

Thank you also for communicating this with the venue to ensure we were not being overcharged, even after our wedding day.  When we saw these emails while on our honeymoon in Europe, we were thankful that you had taken the lead for us.

We hired DreamGroup mainly based on reviews and your true value was demonstrated the day of!  We would (and already have) recommended you to our friends in a heartbeat – For those contemplating on spending $$$ on day of coordination – without a doubt, this is a must!

Jill, when we came home, we loved the rose petals you & your assistant left on our walkway.  Thank you also for the desserts and treats left in our fridge – all these little touches were much appreciated and left a lasting impression.

Thank you again,

I can’t say enough good things about Kiri, our wedding planner. She was extremely professional, and seemed to genuinely care about us. She was very responsive to my (constant) emails and tried her best to accommodate all of my requests. Her amazing value really came through on the wedding day when she just took care of everything seamlessly and with a smile on her face. I would highly, highly recommend her. Now that my wedding is over, I miss her!!

My family has been so very privileged to work with Sandy and the DreamGroup team to plan my daughter’s wedding atop Grouse Mountain.

We started our planning process in the Spring of 2013 and since the day we met her, Sandy has been an incredible resource wrapped in a bundle of fun. Sandy received our ideas and moulded them into cost-effective and practical experiences for our day. Over the planning process she took her time to get to know my daughter and son-in-law as well as our immediate family to create a day that would reflect their personalities, ideals and budget.

Sandy managed our wedding like it was her only one and was very gracious and accepting of feedback when certain vendors she recommended didn’t suit us. The wedding was the exquisitely beautiful and fun-filled event my daughter and son-in-law dreamed of and for me as mother of the bride it was unbelievably stress-free, having trusted all the details to Sandy and her team.

I also must mention the vendors Sandy contracts with are an incredible group of artists and it is hard to imagine that we could have found them without her contacts and expertise. I cannot recommend Sandy and DreamGroup productions highly enough.

Hi Amanda,

Thank you thank you thank you!

I can’t imagine our wedding day without you! I can’t put it into words how much I appreciate what you have done for us! Not only did you allow me to relax (which is impossible for me to do) you took care of our every need and you kept the flow of the wedding running so smoothly!

Thank you for teaching me how to walk down that aisle and I will never forget how special my walk down the aisle was because of you. The idea for the curtain reveal was amazing! All my friends and family can’t stop talking about it. One of my other favorite moments is how fast you got my second page of my speech to me in a pair of heels. Everyone is talking about it! We watched a family video last night and we were all smiling and saying “WOW” how did Amanda do that so fast???!!

You are truly an amazing person and excellent at what you do and you are beyond professional and so calming:) Also thank you for feeding us. We actually got to taste our food!

The whole day was magical and it seems like a dream I can’t believe how fast it went.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Our wedding day wouldn’t have been possible without Amanda. The best decision we made was to hire her for our wedding.

I’m a type A personality who always rushes, never seems to be able to relax and always has to be in charge of everything but on my wedding day, I wanted someone else to take care of everything and I wanted to be able to relax and not worry. Amanda did that for me.

I will forever be grateful to her for that. I never looked at the time, I never stressed and I felt taken care of the whole day. She was so professional and so calm through our entire wedding, keeping a great timeline flow. The next bride that has the pleasure of working with Amanda is a lucky girl!

Hi Sandy,

I can’t thank you enough for everything that you did for us throughout the wedding.

The whole event was amazing and I was able to sit back and enjoy it knowing that you had everything under control. Although I was resistant to getting help initially, I now see that it was one of the smartest investments we could have made to ensure everything went smoothly.

You were also such a pleasure to work with. I really appreciated your professionalism, positive attitude and genuine nature; you nurtured my ideas and made me feel as though my vision was unique and exciting but you also gave us great advice on how to make the wedding run as smoothly as possible. I also couldn’t believe that you were able to get my belt from home after I’d forgotten it – that really meant a lot to me.

You are very good at what you do. Thank you for playing such a key role in our day. Both Brad and I had an amazing night!

Hi Jill!

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It wouldn’t have been nearly as perfect without you (and WAY more stressful).

I’m sorry if all I did was come to you with problems instead of letting you know how incredible everything looked and thanking you for taking care of everything so we didn’t have to worry and could have fun! (That goes for Genessa as well).

The day really couldn’t have been more perfect.

Thank you for everything from both of us,

Sarah and Graham Williams (still weird to write)

Kiri,

I have tried to write you an email a few times but every time I felt I could not express just how thankful I am for everything you did to make our wedding what it was. Everything went perfectly, largely because of your guiding hand.

The vendors you introduced me to and recommended were all so great!  They were all exactly what I was hoping for and fit the vision I had in mind for the day. I also can’t tell you how much I appreciate you stepping in and working with the vendors as we were getting closer to the day, you knew exactly where and when to step in.  That really took a weight off my shoulders in a very busy time at work and with wedding planning!

Most of all, thank you for your calm, warm, professional, reassuring presence on our wedding day.  Having you and your team there allowed John, my mom and I to really just relax and enjoy the day as much as possible without worrying about the details or what came next.  I can’t tell you just how fantastic it was just to know that you had everything under control.  It really allowed me–who admittedly has trouble letting go of control over the details–to let go and be in the moment, and it took a huge weight off my shoulders. You really did go above and beyond what I had ever expected.  The schedule ran so perfectly, and I never had to worry about where I had to be or that things wouldn’t happen.  Everyone has been saying how it is the best wedding they have ever been to!  In particular, people keep commenting on how they felt entertained the entire time, and they never felt bored or like things were dragging on. Thank you for making that happen.

Kiri, working with you was truly a treat. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. I have (and will continue) to recommend you and DreamGroup to anyone looking (or even not looking) for a wedding planner/coordinator.

All the best,

Kate

The experience of working with Dreamgroup is hard to put into words because it feels as if we could not do them justice. We had so many guests comment that it was one of if not the best wedding they’ve been to!

Our planner Kiri was so in tune with what we were thinking and dreaming of that she really became an extension of ourselves. You could even say she was a better version of ourselves, as she was able to take an intangible thought or idea and turn it into reality. She also has such a warm and energetic personality that it was an absolute joy to work with her, and we couldn’t have imagined doing any of this without her. We had the time of our lives, and are still reminiscing about how magical our day turned out.

It was perfect, I felt like I was able to relax and truly enjoy the day. My words can’t even express how grateful I am to have had you! You were so professional, and easy to communicate with and so unbelievably helpful. I couldn’t have chosen someone better to execute the most important day of our lives. I would definitely HIGHLY recommended you to future brides and grooms!!! You were truly amazing!!! Thank you Christie!

Hi Sandy,

Well, I hope you know by now, but the verdict is in and absolutely unanimous: the wedding was a SMASHING SUCCESS and really exceeded every single expectation we had. I won’t go into everything right now, but the one thing we heard over and over from our guests was that our wedding was THE BEST WEDDING THEY HAD EVER BEEN TO and they had SO MUCH FUN!!!

From the band to the flowers and the food, speeches and ceremony – everything went sooo smoothly – all thanks to you Sandy.

We can’t wait to get together with you to talk about EVERYTHING, but for now, just know we are floating on cloud nine.

Thank you Sandy,

We’re sending you much love from Hawaii.

PS – hope you got a chance to check out Desmond’s crazy moves on the dance floor! I bet you didn’t see that coming giving his enthusiasm at our planning sessions. With the exception of Jayda, I don’t think anybody had a better time than the groom.

My partner and I used Geneve as our wedding planner. Neither of us had a clue about how to orchestrate a wedding and so we wanted to hire the best out there and did.

Geneve was thoughtful, thorough, and came up with amazing ideas and vendors. She was there with us every step of the way and helped us over many a hurdle. She was always timely in her responses to us sometimes well into the night.

And on the wedding day, wow, she and her team exceeded every expectation I had.It was beautiful, fantastic, and fun. Every single guest said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we did not want the night to end. There were a few hiccups just prior to the wedding day and on the wedding day and Geneve handled them with professional ease. It truly was the best day of my life and I could not have come anywhere close to pulling it off without Geneve.

You were able to keep our stresses to a minimum.

Keep up the great work, we love you!

Hey Christie,

I just wanted to thank you so much for your role in Kaleim and Liz’s wedding.  The night was magical and everyone had a blast. We all still could not wipe the smiles off our faces on Sunday, despite feeling pretty nasty most of Sunday.  You’re great at your job and your company must be completely pumped to have you there.  Your fanny pack was especially my fav ;). I will absolutely recommend you and Dream Group for anyone that I know that is planning an event in Vancouver.

Take care,

I planned my wedding with Geneve from Dreamgroup. She was in a word amazing! I had just moved to Vancouver, so her insights on venues and vendors was really invaluable to me. I feel like I had access to top vendors that I otherwise wouldn’t have.

Geneve was so meticulous in the details of our weddings (we had two separate dates with multiple venues), honestly our guests and both myself and my husband were blown away. Her attention to me throughout the process was fantastic. She would at times literally respond to emails sent late on a Sunday night within minutes.

You could not ask for a planner who is more dedicated to making your special day perfect.

————————————————————–

I only have positive things to say about my experience from working with DreamGroup. From the moment we hired DreamGroup, we knew we were in good hands. They were professional, efficient, experienced, and just all around wonderful to work with.  Our Planner’s calming presence and amazing organizational skills made my wedding day stress free and wonderful.

I highly recommend hiring DreamGroup if you are looking for some assistance with your wedding.

What an amazing experience it was dealing with DreamGroup Productions. I wish to thank Kiri McLeod and all of her staff for making our event such an incredible success. Kiri’s knowledge of the wedding industry, professionalism and attention to detail played such an integral part in the final planning and execution stage of our wedding. She will take the weight right off your shoulders and you will feel your stress dissipate. Hire this lady and her accomplished staff. You will not be sorry! Thank you again for everything.

We had a very positive experience with DreamGroup.
– the event seemed to run smoothly, as the Bride I was completely un-stressed which is the most important success of the day! All thanks to Jayleen – unstressed bride = unstressed groom
– no issues were brought to light on the wedding day (some décor broken, few things missing), these were carefully concealed and we didn’t find out till the next day which I was very grateful for as I wouldn’t want to be thinking about these little things on the day.
– every effort was made by Jayleen to keep the schedule on time, and she paid great attention to the bride and groom all day offering water, champagne, anything at all! and making sure we were content and happy throughout the day.
– Jayleen went above and beyond by picking up our wedding cake, and making the champagne sabering happen (despite the strict venue rules) which was an amazing surprise to finish the night!
– given my extremely over organized personality, Jayleen was great at reassuring me that everything was prepared and ready for the day, and that I hadn’t forgotten anything. She was also great at offering her assistance to take things off my plate when she could see I was stressing out a little in the week leading up.

Thank you so much for sorting out mums shoes last night.  You made something that was going to be such a headache for me with all our scheduled activities today a breeze.  With no one knowing downtown well it would have taken us an age to resolve.  You are a gem.

Just wanted to give you a BIG thank you for helping make Jeffrey & Christine’s wedding a huge success! Many guests have emailed or called to say how beautiful the wedding was…..from the flower decor to the smooth running of banquet, speeches, etc etc. It would not have been possible if it was not for your close monitoring and assistance throughout.

Thank you for giving us such beautiful memories!

We have already received many comments that the event was done very elegantly and was spiritually inspiring. Thanks in major part to you and your team.

You did a great job under a lot of pressure.

Please keep in touch.

Planning this wedding wouldn’t be possible without you. I hope you had a great experience planning a “Persian” wedding. Evan was great, his work was amazing. Everyone was talking about the “unique” centrepieces and the Sofreh which we loved so much.

Today has been a day of reflection and family sharing. Thank you sincerely Geneve for all your efforts, planning and attention to the minutia that made it happen. It could not have been as brilliant without you!! You must be exhausted. I don’t know how you do this!!

We’ll chat this week. We are all smiling and happy and thankful!

Dear Geneve,

Where do I begin?!  Riley and I wanted to say thank you one more time for all of your help with our amazing wedding – it was beyond perfect! The feedback from our guests was that everyone had a fabulous time and were blown away by how beautifully executed everything was. Thank you for all your patience, grace, good judgement and incredible planning.  As soon as we met last October, you put me totally at ease and I knew that no matter what happened you would make sure that the wedding would go smoothly… and it did! There was absolutely nothing left for us to worry about and we were able to thoroughly immerse ourselves in our incredible day.  Also, all of your recommended vendors were truly a pleasure to work with and succeeded in making our day even more perfect. We had such a wonderful time, we wish we could do it all over again!!!! One of the greatest pleasures was getting to know you. You were not just our wedding planner, but an ally, confident and friend. THANK YOU! We couldn’t have done it without you. You really did make our wedding dreams come true!

We hope to see you again soon!

I just wanted to echo what my wife recently wrote in her review of Geneve.

I wanted a wedding planner from the start. Not only because my wife and I didn’t have the time necessary to make our day as special as we hoped it would be, but also because I wanted someone who knew what was important and how to best go about getting it. Adding in the fact that we were getting married in Vancouver while living in Winnipeg and it could have made for a potential logistical nightmare.

Geneve wasn’t only calm, knowledgable, friendly and extremely helpful, all things I would expect from a wedding planner, but she really tried to get to know Sarah and I to find out what our perfect wedding would look like. She kept us on track throughout the process and managed all the different personalities from both of our families, all who wanted to give their “helpful” input. I was also extremely impressed by the recommendations she made for vendors, some that were well established but also others that were just starting out, but that she somehow knew would be amazing.

On the day of our wedding she managed every single little detail that could possibly be thought of and, for most of the day I didn’t really even notice her or her team; save for a couple of instances when chaos theory threatened to throw a wrench in our plans and she would appear out of nowhere, with her wedding utility belt, to calmly and efficiently make things perfect. She’s like the Batman of weddings!

Geneve far exceeded my expectations for what a wedding planner should be and anyone who has the pleasure of working with her in the future will quickly realize what a good decision they’ve made in having her help plan their special day.

Hi Geneve!

Post wedding exhaustion has finally set in!  Almost every great memory that we have talked about has been followed by, “wow, what would we have done without Geneve there to help with that?”. You made our day as perfect as possible and we will be forever grateful!! Thank you again, I am so thankful and happy that you were with us and we will continue to recommend DreamGroup to anyone looking for an event planner!

Hi Geneve

Hope you had a great Canada day weekend!!!

WOW what a day it was on Saturday! THANK you from the bottom of our hearts for all you and your fabulous team did for Eugene and I.  From speeding back to the house to get my bouquet to getting covered in sparkles to arranging the chicken meals for my moms friends to crawling on your hands and knees just so you wouldn’t walk by the slideshow presentation (my sister told me about that and I was so touched), you work with passion and drive and it’s no wonder your successes are so numerous! Your kindness and warmth only make the overall experience that much more special! You helped to keep me calm amidst the sometime chaotic dramas that were going on…it made me SO happy that you were there to share the day with us! Thank you for your kind text message on Saturday night and apologies for not replying to it sooner Geneve! You put SO much hard work into the day and I will surely tell all that are looking for wedding coordinators about how amazing it was to work with you!!!!

Hey Geneve!

I just wanted to say that Sandy and her team were beyond awesome at Dorothy’s wedding this past weekend! She is so professional and so great and just so on top of everything!

She was also so good about making sure Dorothy was ok and when there were certain requests that came in from family members, she’d always run it by me or my SIL first. She was just so so soooo great. Cannot rave enough about her! She was so patient the entire night and always had a smile on her face. She was just so fun to be around.

Every time my SIL or I would get up off our chair, either her or her assistant Anh would come running up to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were doing fine. It was so nice knowing that they were constantly making sure we were ok the entire night. Dorothy always raved about how good she is, but I’m so glad that I was able to see that for myself as well.

You really have the perfect team Geneve!! Can’t wait to see you guys at any future weddings!

We simply could not have achieved all that we wanted without you.  What a fantastic way to start married life, totally stress free and happy!!!  We were delighted with the service provided by DreamGroup.  Sandy, you are an absolute professional who is clearly passionate about what you do.  From the onset you were on hand to offer advice and nothing was ever too much trouble. Your friendly and relaxed approach was a big hit with suppliers and our guests alike. As guardians of our vision for the day, you exceeded all of our expectations and we would highly recommend you to anyone.

I just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for us.

Simply put, you and your crew were absolutely amazing. There are no other words to describe how outstanding your level of professionalism, service, compassion and care was. It was beyond outstanding and you went beyond the call of duty.

You made our lives so simple and easy that we were really able to enjoy the day. You fulfilled my dreams of giving Annie her dream wedding and you certainly fulfilled Annie’s dream of having that perfect wedding.

I cannot thank you enough for coming through for us. You were absolutely amazing in handling everything and I hope we didn’t make your lives too hard! We wanted to make sure our vendors were taken care of so our guests would be taken care of – and we have had nothing but great and positive feedback from everyone. You guys did a marvelous job.

Geneve, it was a pleasure and an honour to have worked with you and your team.  If you would like us to give you a glowing recommendation, please have your potential clients call me directly.

Using Dreamgroup to plan our  wedding was the best decision we could have made.

Their team provided outstanding guidance on all aspects of our wedding. We were put in touch with the best suppliers, every detail was handled with consideration, always in the budget range, with no redirection of our vision. The day itself was completely worry free.

Geneve worked tirelessly, discretely in the background — to keep everything running on time and flowing smoothly so all we had to do was enjoy the day and our guests.  Countless hours were saved in the planning and this was critical to us. It was the most beautiful day captured by invisible photographers. DreamGroup is the best!

Dear Geneve,
Thank you for everything you have done for us.  We are so grateful for you coming along and being there for us when we needed you most.  I’m really going to miss our emails and my constant changing of mind and needing your expert opinion.  I totally get why everyone says you guys are the best and I now see what an awesome wedding planner can do for us!

The last 3 months leading up to my wedding has been the best 3 months.  I knew I could trust and count on you to make all the right decisions on our behalf and be there for me whenever I needed someone to tell me I’m not making the best decision and also when I was making a smart decision.  Thanks for saving us and being there for us and planning the best wedding ever.  We both felt like we didn’t have a worry in the world on our day and enjoyed every second of it.

Everything was absolutely beautiful and was better than we expected.  I felt calm and taken care of all day.  We just couldn’t believe it was over so soon!  I knew that if there was anything that would come up… you’d be there to fix it.  It was honestly the BEST day of our lives and we thank you for making it so!  Your hard work and dedication truly made the day a huge success.  We both felt such a bond with you!  Not only did we find THE BEST (and most organized) wedding planner, we found a friend along the way.  We wish you the very best!  Hope we can keep in touch.  We’ll be sure to send you photos of our honeymoon in Greece! 🙂

” Dreams do come true… ”

Aug 7th 2010 was the most incredible day of our lives. I’ve always dreamed of having a ” Fairytale Wedding ”

It was an honor to have such an amazing team.

Sarah Shore from Dreamgroup Productions, is so unbelievably talented and because of her, our dream wedding became reality. Not only is she a professional wedding planner, but along the way she became a true friend. She is so gifted, and without a doubt, she will be our planner indefinitely. There are no words to thank her enough for all the time and effort she put into our very special day. Her Ideas we’re so above and beyond what I imagined. When I described my designs to her, she put them to life. The energy and motivation Sarah has most definitly reflects on each individual client. I can now fully understand why this company is called Dreamgroup Productions … A Production of Dreams was witnessed this very day.

Love,

Now that I am back ‘on the Island’ and have had time to recover and reflect on the absolutely perfect night that you helped create with your support and vision I must sent you a big thank you.    I myself have never planned anything bigger than a dinner party for ten and at my wedding I had three people at the “Births, Deaths and Marriages” office so when Sarah decided on a wedding for 100 I absolutely encouraged her to hire you.

Whenever Sarah or I felt overwhelmed you were the touchstone we went to either by e-mail or in our heads to calm us down. I never doubted that whatever happened “on the day” it would all work out in the end and you were a huge part of helping us feel that way.   Many people who attended have told both Sarah and I that it was “the best wedding they have ever been to” and they said it with such sincerity I believe they meant it. The night was the perfect balance between the seriousness of the occasion and fun and humour — all the things that you need not only in an event but also in a marriage (especially the humour part!!).  Without a good sense of humour I don’t know how a marriage can survive.

Anyway Geneve, I could go on and on, but thank you for making Sarah and Tom’s night so special. I think that nothing I could say could top the look on your face when Tom came up at the end of the night and gave you a big hug. That said it all.

Dear Sarah,
Justin, my parents, and I would like to thank you for your wonderful and professional service over the past year.  We are so pleased with how our special day went and could not have asked for more from you or DreamGroup Productions!

When we first met, you asked Justin and I what our three priorities were for our wedding day.  This is what we said:

1. We wanted to have a relaxing, stress-free wedding day which could be enjoyed to it’s fullest and would be treasured forever!

2. We wanted our guests to have a fun and memorable time during our wedding.

3. It was important to me that Justin cry when I walked down the aisle.

And ever since that first meeting, you have worked so hard to make every single one of those wishes come true.  Not only did Justin and I have the most amazing and fun day, our guests were completely awed by every aspect of the wedding!  We received countless compliments on the smooth flow of the day, beauty of the decor, venue, delicious meal, and entertaining program, to name a few.  In addition,  Justin spent the entire wedding ceremony wiping away tears of joy as we proceeded to tie the knot!

Sarah, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  We will never forget the excellent job you and your team did.

In eternal gratitude from Justin and I and my family.
Yours sincerely,

Thank you again.

DreamGroup Ladies,
Rob, myself, and our families would like to thank each of you so much for helping to fulfill all our wedding day dreams.  We first met with you a year ago for our Blue Print Package meeting, which exceeded any expectations we had.  It became our go to guide for any questions or concerns, and enabled us to do the foot work for our wedding ourselves, enjoying all the planning, but helped to lead us in all the right directions.

The Blue Print Package helped pave the way to our wedding day, and the Wedding Day Management Package tied any loose ends.  The DreamGroup girls made us both feel completely at ease and stress free on the big day.  Not only did we appreciate the efficiency of the evening, but guests took note of the nights effortless flow as well.  On a special note, even our other vendors let us know how helpful DreamGroup was for them as well, allowing them to do their job as best as they can, and therefore, enriching our day even more.

Thank you so much for helping us create and enjoy our special day.  It was all the more amazing because of you wonderful ladies.

You exceeded our expectations on the wedding day.  Throughout the entire day we were able to truly enjoy our wedding and treasure the time with family and friends because you dealt with every detail.  In our minds, it was an absolutely flawless execution of our vision and we owe much of that to you.

We look forward to the time we will spend together in the future.

Dear Geneve,
We realize that August was some time ago and clearly this note is long overdue, but we honestly still think about our wedding every day and can’t thank you (and your team) enough for everything that you did to make it truly the best day of our lives.  We’ve been pouring over the photos and can’t get over how beautiful and perfect everything was — from the flowers to the canapés, the stunning ballroom and the fabulous party downstairs afterwards — everything was incredible and exceeded even our wildest expectations.

Your enthusiasm and dedication throughout the planning process was invaluable, as was your tireless work on the big day.  Your efforts allowed us and our families to relax and enjoy every moment and for that we are forever grateful.  We wish that we could go back and do it all over again as everything was fabulous and so much fun!  It was a pleasure working with you – thank you so much for everything.

Best,

Dear Sarah,
Thank you very much for all you did to make Taylor and Ryan’s wedding their special day.  I have received so many telephone calls from guests with compliments.  Everything went smoothly.  The entire wedding had a coordinated look that was simply stunning.  It looked to me like Taylor and Ryan were actually having fun.  I have been to weddings where the bride and groom seem very stressed by the whole event and I must say it simply did not seem that way with Taylor and Ryan.  While the day was long, adrenaline seemed to keep us all going to the very end.

Your attention to detail was fantastic.  Thank you for all your help.  If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to ask me.  I would be pleased to assist.

Geneve,
We were so fortunate to have been able to work with you for our wedding. Simply put, you are amazing.

I’ve said it before, but there were just so many times when you surprised and delighted me by thinking of extra thoughtful ideas and going the extra mile on so many occasions. You knew what to spend money on and you also advised me when it probably wasn’t worth it.  And then explained why!  Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge.  You were always so prompt in responding to emails and phone calls.

You are so passionate about what you do and it makes it a pleasure to work with you.  When we first met, it was your freshness and enthusiasm that made me want to work with you and it’s a testimony to how positive a person you are that after a year and an half of working together your can-do attitude never waned.  You were always a ray of sunshine, always upbeat, positive and professional.  So many people commented on how relaxed and how much fun the bride was having and that was due largely to you.  I felt that we had anticipated everything we could have and if anything came up I trusted you completely and knew things would be fine in your very capable hands.  We would not have enjoyed our wedding as much without your being there to oversee everything and it wouldn’t have been the gorgeous and magical day that it was without your advice and experience to guide us through the decisions.

You became my friend and a confidant and I want to thank you for your advice as it came from a place of concern and consideration and I will always be very grateful to you for that. My wedding day could have been very different had you not been so honest with me.  I am going to miss you, but wish you good health, much happiness and success!

With Love,
Shauna (Mrs. Zingg)

To Sarah and the DreamGroup Team,

Nelson and I can not thank you enough for all your hard work and expertise on the day of our wedding.

Sarah, because of you I was able to relax fully on our wedding day. I had complete confidence knowing that if any issues arose you and your team would deal with them without the bride and groom being none the wiser. From helping us with details weeks ahead of the wedding to sewing on my dad’s tuxedo button minutes before we walked into the church, you were amazing and I can not thank you and your team enough!

Every bride should have a Sarah Shore wedding coordintor at their wedding to ensure for a flawless day that you will always remember for the rest of your life!  At all times you and your team were professional, calm and pleasant, the perfect dynamic to calm a nervous bride.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy our big day.

Geneve and Team,
Many thanks again for all your hard work and for coaching us throughout the whole planning process.  It was difficult to let it go and have someone help out… or so I thought!  Despite having to relinquish control in some areas (gladly) I still felt we were involved as much as we wanted to be and that you knew exactly when to chip in with useful advice and direction.  May 2010 be even more successful for you!

Thank you!

To my favourite wedding planner Sarah,
It’s almost been a week since the wedding and we still can’t stop smiling!  It was without a doubt the most wonderful day of our lives and so much of that had to do with the fact that we were able to relax and just enjoy the entire day knowing that you were taking care of everything behind the scenes.

I think back to when we first met almost a year and a half ago and were talking about what look and feel we were envisioning, and what actually came to life on the wedding day was even more personalized and beautiful than I had ever hoped for!  We have received so many comments from our family and friends about how well coordinated everything was, how beautiful the flowers and décor were, and how much fun everyone had!

Thank you for being there with us every step of the way and for helping to put together the wedding of our dreams!  I’m going to miss all of our emails and updates, but sincerely hope we can stay in touch!

Take care and thanks again!  With all our love,
Candace & Nick,

Hi Geneve,
I just wanted to thank you for all the perfection and beauty that you helped to create for our wedding on June 5th.

You helped me plan and organize before the wedding and I knew that working with you would be easy and synergestic and it was. The day of the wedding everything was handled to perfection! You are amazing at what you do—a true professional. Beyond that …….I like you so much as a person I don’t want to lose touch with you.

I think the service was beautiful. When I saw the room that we created at the RVYC it exceeded my vision……….it was enchanting, everything looked perfectly placed and the energy in the room was so blessed, like a little piece of heaven for the evening. It felt magical and it was……I can’t even articulate the perfection that occurred the whole evening.

Thank you for your heart and your soul that you poured into the entire day……..as if it was your wedding. You are an angel.

Adam and I deeply appreciate you and your team for everything , known and not known that you did.

With Love & Appreciation,
Alison & Adam

Hi Geneve,
Thanks for all of your hard work and guidance through this process.  We couldn’t have done it without you.  The wedding was wonderful, and the fact that it all went off without the slightest hitch and with the grooms being cool, calm, and collected, is a major tribute to you and your team. Job well done.

Best of luck and please keep in touch!
