    Best. Decision. By Far.

    Copy and pasting from our google review...

    My better half and I have experience in organizing events, but we wanted to keep wedding planning as stress-free as possible. We chose the Wedding Day Essentials package and we were paired with Cayenne - we knew we were in great hands from the first conversation as she demonstrated equal parts of calm, humour, and the willingness to learn about her clients. On top of this is her deadly precision in knowing what to do/say and when with ourselves and our vendors and we realized just how lucky we were to have her on our side.

    From reviewing contracts and providing commentary, to keeping us on track with timelines and deadlines, to always thinking about the "what if..?" or the "how about...?" situations and scenarios, the planning process was pretty darn low stress and this was definitely the case during the big day.

    Our wedding was approximately 125 guests - Cayenne and her assistants made the entire day FLAWLESS! We were ahead of schedule in cocktail hour, group photographs, and the tea ceremony to the point where we were able to get an extra 90 minutes with our photographers before the sun set!

    Best Decision Ever

    Sydney was the first planner we chatted with when we began our planning and we knew right off the bat that she would be the perfect fit for us and we didn't need to look anywhere else. She is a pleasure to work with, with her big smile, bubbly personality, and enthusiasm which made the process that much more enjoyable. It was a magical wedding day and it couldn't have happened without Sydney's expert knowledge and helpful advice, guiding us through logistics, rehearsal and small details we would've never thought about. She is very responsive and coordinated smoothly with all our vendors ensuring our vision was executed properly and all we had to do on the big day was relax and enjoy the moment. I had multiple friends comment on why I looked so stress free leading up to the wedding and my answer was always because we had Sydney on board this year long journey! We would highly recommend Sydney and the DreamGroup team to help plan your big day because it was definitely the best decision we made.

    Thank you so much for leaving this lovely testimonial. Sydney will be so happy! Take care of yourself and each other. xoxo

    My Bridezilla Side Never Came Out

    Wedding planning can bring the worst out of ya: the stress, the challenges, the disagreements…. Guess what? I never had to stress. Brynn from DreamGroup took care of everything. I just sat there and waited for her to come to me with (usually) 3 options of services she narrowed down. Sounds like a minor detail, but trust me, it helped soooooo much. Especially for couples whom both work at demanding jobs.

    DreamGroup Weddings + Events's reply:

    Thank you Rebecca for taking the time to share this lovely testimonial! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. xoxo

    Our Dream Wedding with Jessie from DreamGroup

    We first had the pleasure of meeting Jessie back in 2019 for our 2020 wedding and right off the bat, we knew we wanted Jessie to coordinate our big day!

    In our initial meeting she offered so much advice and gave us a true idea of how much our ‘ideal’ wedding would cost. We left the meeting feeling like we received so much helpful information and felt that she deeply cared about how successful our wedding was.

    Due to Covid, we ended up having to postpone our wedding twice. I remember back in March of 2020, when everything was shutting down and I was stressing out over what to do with the wedding, I saw an email from Jessie telling us she already contacted our venue to see if there was another day available the following year. She also checked with all our other vendors to see what their availability was as well. Despite it being a very emotional time having to postpone, Jessie's proactive and sensitive approach to the way she assisted us was truly amazing.

    We finally were able to have our wedding in July 2022 and throughout the 3 years, Jessie was always so responsive and quick with emails. Planning a wedding can be very stressful, especially when it's a 250 person event, but Jessie was so personable and easy to talk to, that she made planning our wedding so enjoyable and fun.

    Thanks to Jessie, we truly had our fairytale wedding. I can’t say enough good things about Jessie and I would recommend her to anyone!

    If I could do it over I would hire Jill 1000 times and pay twice as much. She did such an amazing job and was an integral part of our special day. Anyone looking for a wedding planner look no further!

    Olivia - amazing

    We hired Olivia Woolwich from DreamGroup for our wedding back in 2020. We ended up having to postpone it twice and Olivia worked with us so well during that time. She helped us move it twice and ensured we had everything covered for the actual wedding in 2022. She helped us with decor planning, recommendations for party favours and vendors and made the day of experience absolutely flawless. She was a dream to work with and I wish I had another opportunity to use her. She was affordable and very responsive and worked exceptionally hard. We can't recommend her enough.

    Truly above and beyond

    I cannot day enough about our wedding planning experience with Jessie. From start to finish, Jessie was literally my life saver. From a new bride navigating a huge event that I had no experience in planning before, Jessie helped to guide me through all the right steps at the right times. My husband and I had a mixed Ismaili/Christian wedding and were also planning from out of country! Jessie often knew more about customs and traditions than we did. Her cultural sensitivity was such a nice touch to have in a wedding planner and went a long way for us. She was incredibly organized (a dream for anyone who has a type A personality), ridiculously responsive to emails or texts, and such a darling sweet lady to work with. Jessie implemented so many thoughtful little gestures or favors throughout the planning process (like giving us the name of her family friend cake baker when we couldn’t find a reasonably priced cake) that really solidified the entire reason we went with her in the first place. I know it’s tough to navigate who the right planner is for you, but I strongly strongly encourage you to work with Jessie at dreamgroup if you want to ensure every little detail is thought of from start to finish. We love her and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

    What a wonderful review! Sums it up so perfectly. So happy you felt the love and attention we strive to provide. All the best Emily. xoxo

    Perfect in every way

    Our experience with dream group was absolutely amazing. Jessie was always there for us every step of the way, and was always thinking with our needs in mind.

    Dream team with Dreamgroup!!!!

    The name "dreamgroup" clearly holds up- a million thank yous to Geneve McNally and her team's hard work and devotion to making our wedding as special as it possibly could have been!!! WOW to the whole experience - Geneve was there whenever I needed her and was a fabulous communicator to so many different kinds of vendors. She helped us put together a killer professional team and worked crazy hard on the wedding weekend, making sure every detail was accounted for on the back end, while still making sure I had a drink in hand! Her enthusiasm and open heart made it fun and meaningful the whole way through! We are on cloud 9 and will cherish these memories forever!!!!!!!!

    Married Sept 22, 2018

    We had a great experience from start to finish with Dream Group Productions. The number one piece of advice everyone gave us from the start was to hire a wedding planner and I could not agree more. We had Brynn Belisle as our planner and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. Being someone who values communication, responsiveness and organization I was truly impressed with Brynn's attention. Brynn was there by our side throughout the entire process and made everything so easy for us. Leading up to our wedding day we felt happy, relaxed and ready knowing everything was taken care of and in the hands of a true professional. Brynn helped bring our vision to life and we are so thankful and so lucky to have found her. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a planner, not only is she beyond capable but she is such a pleasure to work with.

    DreamGroup Weddings + Events's reply:

    Thank you for this lovely note. We adore hearing not just how good it was but why! It reinforces what clients need and want from their planning experience. I’ll make sure Brynn sees it!! All the best in love and life! xoxo
