    Everything and More!

    Shana and Dreamweavers was an incredibly influential part of our wedding. Part of what people say about their wedding experience is the stress associated with their big day...our day was anything but. Every little detail was planned (for all you worry worts out there) with an itinerary so there was no confusion on the day of. There were no worries on our part so we were able to focus on the magic of the day and thats exactly what happened. We are eternally grateful :) thank you so much Dreamweavers!

    Trust me. Meet her and you will know she is "the one"!

    Shana is amazing.

    We met her via Zoom during the lockdown in February. We had interviewed a few planners and felt that Shana not only was highly skilled and honest, but also has a great personality - I mention this because you are about to spend months to possibly years with your planner, not only are they in charge of your big event or wedding, but you will be spending a lot of time with them planning, touring venues, review budgets, etc. So choose your planner wisely! My partner is on the quiet side, and me... well let's just say I'm wedding and style illiterate.

    We met her in February and our wedding was in October. Planning a wedding in 8 months is difficult. Add-in a lockdown during a pandemic, with changing restrictions and so much uncertainty, well... it's a recipe for a lot of stress. Shana held our hands throughout the entire process; she is patient, understanding, kind, diligent, and has an eye for style. I am so grateful to have hired her for our big day. The wedding day itself will always be busy and filled with memories, and it's so great having someone you can trust to orchestrate the wedding so you can truly enjoy yourself.

    Without her this would've been such a stressful event. I am so glad we had Shana and her team. Thank you Shana!

    Dream Weaver Events's reply:

    Thank you SOOOO much Stephanie - you and Justin were an absolute dream to work with and I'm going to miss our meetings! Wishing you, Justin, Frank and the new little one all the very best

    Amazing wedding planner!

    I found DreamWeaver Events through Wedding Wire and I worked with Shana DeRoche. She had an introductory phone call with me and she followed up with me a few days later to see if I had any further questions. I could tell from her initiative to follow up with me and our first meeting that she really cared and I hired her to be my wedding planner!

    We had monthly meetings and she gave us her list of preferred vendors which saved us so much time when it came to planning our wedding. Every vendor she recommended to us who we hired turned out to be outstanding. Shana also created a timeline for us to help us tackle all the tasks for our wedding. Our wedding also had cultural traditions that Shana and her team took the time to get to know. Shana also confirmed timings of arrival with all of our vendors the week before our wedding which saved us a lot of effort. Throughout our wedding planning process which was about a year and a half she was very approachable and easy to contact, she would respond almost immediately through text and email.

    The day of our wedding our her team came on time, prepared and they tackled EVERY potential hiccup that could have occurred very professionally and efficiently. (They even helped me put my earrings and shoes on!) I could not have asked for a better wedding day and I really owe it to Shana and her team at DreamWeaver Events!

    Wedding day must-have!

    Shana and her team are an absolute pleasure to work with, I would recommend her in a heartbeat! Shana was my day of coordinator for our 80-guest wedding. All our vendors raved about her professionalism, personality and organization skills. The whole day was super relaxed and seamless, she kept us on schedule, well-fed and relaxed throughout the day. I’m typically the type of person who worries about every little detail and constantly checking the time. But on our wedding day, I didn’t look at the time once! She made sure everything I had planned for the wedding was executed and executed very well. Shana has a natural talent for wedding planning, she loves weddings with a passion and this is evident throughout her work. She made my day extra special with her contagious lively and cheerful personality.

    PS. I’d highly recommend hiring a wedding planner. It was worth being able to spend quality time with my new husband.

    Best decor & stylist team ever

    Shana and her team were AMAZING! I allowed them a lot of creative control and told them the experience I wanted and they ran with it. Shana was so organized and easy to get ahold of and on top of absolutely everything. The decor at the wedding was absolutely insane and was so moody, different and packed a punch. I would recommend using Dream Weaver to everyone and I want to have another event so i can use them again.

    Dream Weaver Events's reply:

    Amanda, you are the absolute BEST! What a dream to be able to create such a beautiful and unique design! I'm so happy to have met someone who was so willing to push the envelope in order to have what she REALLY WANTED for her wedding! I look forward to staying in touch! XOX

    Dont look further hire shana & dreamweaver

    The second my now husband and I met Shana. We knew she was the one- Just an instant connection. Her energy is so calming, nurturing and she has a genuine positivity that eludes from within. She is so organized, professional and put together. We felt comfortable and trusting around her like we’ve known her for a lifetime (also feel the exact same way about Reahannon!).
    For our Month-of Service, Shana kept people in line, helps me through some very difficult situations and really kept me very calm through the process, reassuring me things were going to be ok (and everything turned out perfect). She’s a true problem solver and had a great think outside the box attitude that really gets things done. She really was my right-hand gal.

    The day of, she stood by me from the very beginning. Kept me in line, understood my feelings without me having to explain them and my needs. I really felt supported. My husband did too with Reahannon.

    Most of all, they blended with our family and friends – everyone loved them as much as we did, which made the day even more special. All the worries and fears I had washed away, and I was able to relax knowing things were getting taken care of in the right hands of my wedding coordinator ... not to mention how GORGEOUS our day turned thanks to their hard work of setting up

    Dream wedding!

    I was unsure at first if I wanted a wedding planner as we had a smaller wedding with only 50 guests, but I decided on moving forward with a month of coordination package and it was the best decision I ever made! Working with Shana was a breeze from start to finish, she responded to my million questions in a timely manner, planned/scheduled our day perfectly and put all the finishing touches to make my wedding vision come to life. Day of the wedding Shana and her assistant Reahannon were so unbelievably kind and lovely, and made the day run as smoothly as possible - there were a few hiccups out of our control, but they swooped in and fixed it before it was even an issue. If your considering either full wedding planning or month of coordination I HIGHLY recommend Dream Weaver Events!

    Best. Wedding. Ever!!!

    Dreamweaver Events helped us to plan our 200-guest wedding and the best day of our lives! We initially intended to hire a day-of wedding coordinator but opted for the Partial Planning Package instead and are SO glad we did! Shana and her team are extremely knowledgeable in what they do and will prepare you for everything up to the day of the wedding (including the many things you forgot or didn't even consider at all). There is no doubt in our minds that without their help, our wedding planning journey would have been way more stressful than it needed to be. Shana was always responsive and available whenever we had any questions and always had the best advice to give. On top of all this, she has excellent connections with other wedding vendors who can provide top-tier services at a fraction of the cost!

    On the day of the wedding, her team was available to us wherever we went, providing us with firsthand assistance for absolutely anything and everything. If any hiccups occurred throughout the day and night, they were quick to resolve the issue. Our guests had nothing but the best compliments for our wedding and how smooth and beautiful everything went. There is not a single thing we would have changed about our wedding, despite the fact that we are still in the middle of a pandemic. For one night, everything felt like it was back to normal again. Our wedding was perfect! Thank you again to Shana and the Dreamweaver Events team!

    Dream Weaver Events's reply:

    Oh my goodness Angela thank you so much for your kind words! It was my absolute pleasure working with you both, and I can't believe it's all over! You two were so resilient through the whole pandemic, and all with such grace. I'm so happy to have been a part of your big day xoxox

    Shana and the Dream Weaver Events team is *chefs kiss*

    The Dream Weaver Events team is one you'd like to have by your side on your wedding day and as you plan your wedding.

    We had originally booked her team for their month-of coordination services to help us execute everything we had planned. All that changed, of course, with the ever-changing restrictions and lockdowns. We had to reimagine our wedding endlessly until a week before the big day. Like many couples who got married and planned their wedding day during the pandemic, we had so many ups and downs. Thankfully, Shana was there to guide us through it all. She pivoted her services, helped us find an awesome venue and florist, and guided us as we downsized our wedding without sacrificing the vision: surrounded by loved ones and filled with good food and drinks.

    Having professionals, like Shana, Sydney, and Kim, on the day of our wedding accomplished what needed to be done: hiccups were solved without concerning us, schedules were adjusted to accommodate Toronto traffic, and joy and love overflowed. We were able to focus on each other and immerse ourselves in the day thanks to Shana and the DWE team.

    Dream Weaver Events's reply:

    Awww! Oh my goodness Kim and Ian thank you so much for the kind words! We wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else than along for the journey with you! We love you both, and are so thrilled to have been a part of your special day. XOXO

Owner + Creative Director, WPICC, DWC

Ever since I can remember, creating events has been my passion, but it did take me some time to dedicate my life to them. I guess my journey started with not quite loving my first career path. Business marketing for me was a head-down, get in and get out path that led me to various marketing administrative job(s) across the GTA. Pepper in various client service and hospitality jobs and you've got a girl who's not really passionate about anything but finding her purpose.

In 2013 I took a large leap of faith and decided to quit a secure, full-time job and go back to school for Special Event Management. Pretty immediately I knew I was where I was meant to be. Fast forward a year and a half, countless event experiences, a cap-and-gown later, and I'm working full time at a prestigious historic Toronto venue, as well as a well-known Toronto-based wedding planning company.

Over the course of the next three years, I soaked in everything I could about the industry through other professionals, developed my own style, found my place, and in 2017, Dream Weaver Events was born. I absolutely LOVE what I do - which is how I've been able to bring something special to the planning process for my clients. I take my passion for creating, my business-professional experience, and my true love of building relationships in to each and every event I design and execute. When all is said and done and you're walking into your event for the first time, I promise you will experience every element of detail we discovered together during the process.

When I'm not planning or designing, I'm spending precious time with my family and friends, probably making them sit down to a curated table setting for an otherwise normal dinner. I'm a big baseball fan, my favourite colour is purple, and I'm obsessed with hot air balloons.

I'd love to get to know you better over tea (or coffee, though tea is more my thing), and hear all about your big day.
