It's so nice to e-meet you!
My name is Shana DeRoché, and that's me with the curls.
Ever since I can remember, creating events has been my passion, but it did take me some time to dedicate my work life to them. I guess my journey started with not quite loving my first post-secondary experience. Business marketing for me was a head-down, get in and get out path that led me to 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 more of a purpose.
In 2013 I took a large leap and decided to quit a secure, full-time job and go back to school full time for Special Event Management. What a world of difference! 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.
Though bittersweet, a bird has to spread her wings, and after leaving a wonderful event planning company, Dream Weaver Events is born! I'm taking my love to create and my business-professional experience and bringing it to each and every event I execute.
When I'm not planning, designing, and coordinating, I'm spending precious time with my friends and my little family - my husband (seen over there), and our little pup, Ken Griffey Jr. (we're big baseball fans, can you tell?!) My favourite colour is purple, and I'm obsessed with hot air balloons - see logo!
I'd love to get to know you better, and hear all about your big day!
