Even though we were located in New York, we talked on the phone regularly to make decisions and toward the wedding date many times throughout the day on text. Having her on the ground to represent us to vendors, pick up materials and run errands made the wedding possible.
Shana was able to understand our vision and help us understand the choices we would have to make to be realistic. We trusted Shana as an expert to realign our anxieties and grand dreams with reality - was a vendor giving us a fair quote or reasonable terms? -how much decoration would we need to achieve our desired look? -how long a ceremony and what weather conditions would guests tolerate?
On the day of, she and her team were hard-working and out of the way of our guests. They successfully organized and orchestrated three separate events for our guests on the three days of our wedding weekend. Our wedding venue provided few services, so it was crucial to have DreamWeaver coordinate with vendors. Shana Was reliable, upbeat, and clear.

I was fortunate enough to work with Shana to plan my destination wedding. Shana was so supportive and attentive during the process. She helped alleviate any stress with helpful tips and resources that kept us on track. She dealt with all of the correspondence with the resort and any outside vendors.
Once we arrived, Shana and her team were quick to solve any issues and organized all the events for my friends and family .Shana and her team made our wedding day go so smoothly and in such an organized manner. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner and are so grateful that we picked Shana.

To be honest, I originally didn't think we needed a wedding coordinator, however my fiance insisted on it- and I'm glad she did! I can confidently say that Shana and the Dream Weaver team were the main reason we got to enjoy our night. They took care of everything so that we could focus on celebrating with our family and friends. Definitely worth every penny!

I had never dreamed about planning a wedding. It all seemed too stressful and involved too many decisions. I just wanted to show up and enjoy our day. Shana made it all possible. I gave her a general idea of what I was looking for and she filled in the blanks. She thought of things I didn’t think of and incorporated the little things that I envisioned. Shana also did some DIY crafts, arranged the flowers, and added some cute surprises throughout the day. She is truly a jack of all trades and I’m so glad that she planned my ENTIRE wedding so Sean and I could just relax and enjoy the happiest day of our lives.

Our day was truly magical and it was everything we could have hoped for it to be. Shana and her team were there for us every step of the day. From the planning process to late night calls, she was always very responsive. We were able to enjoy every minute of our wedding day because of Dream Weaver Events. Highly recommend!!

Shana was the senior assistant at the events and wedding planning company we used for our destination wedding in Mexico in 2016. She was excellent during the months leading up to the wedding in terms of finding caterers in Mexico, dealing with the hotel, makeup artists, the videographer and photographer from Toronto, henna artist in Toronto and all other aspects of organizing vendors both from pre-trip stuff in Toronto and in Mexico.
Once we got to Mexico, Shana's skills and hard work had really shone and earned our total approval and appreciation. We had the option of just bringing the wedding planner and her assistant.
Thank God we paid for Shana to come. She was worth the extra ticket. Her quick thinking on her feet and ability to find solutions to problems on the spot regardless of available resources at the hotel, provided us with comfort and ease of mind, and got things done to have each event at our mutli-cultural wedding run smoothly. She is both a planner and more importantly, an "executioner". Outside of her "get it done" attitude, and exceptional networking skills, Shana was also an emotional buffer. She was able to keep us calm, and gauge how much she could expect out of us during that week. We would 100% recommend Shana for your wedding.

We couldn’t be happier with the services that Shana and her team provided. Our only regret is that we did not enlist her assistance earlier in our wedding planning! Shana exemplifies what professionalism is and really wowed us with her knowledge and resourcefulness. Shana really took the time to understand who we were and what we wanted in our wedding and then she truly delivered. We enjoyed every part of planning and progression we shared with Shana and we could not be happier with our overall experience. We would definitely recommend Shana and her team to any of our friends and family who are planning to get married. Thanks again, Dreamweaver!!

Everything that makes your dream wedding day come together Shana has covered. Shana was there weeks before, the evening before and she was back at the door bright and early the day of to be my side.
They are an incredible team! They come prepared for any and every obstacle you may run into and when something does come up, no matter how bizarre the scenario, they are on it.
They communicated with all the vendors, Master of Ceremony, and venue to make sure everything happened at the right time. They cued our ceremony so it went smoothly. They oversaw the order of events. They made sure the dessert table was never running low. They made sure no strangers came into our event. They did anything and everything I would not have been able to do myself.
I can’t imagine how stressful my day would have been trying to arrange everything myself - I panic just thinking about it! Shana and her team made our day come together and I am so happy I was able to share our day with them and have them join in on our wedding memories!
