Vancouver's Premier Wedding
Planning Academy: DreamGroup

A Bridal Makeup Artist and Hairsylist has to work with many different parties to achieve the best level of work on the Wedding day. Over my career in Vancouver, I've had the pleasure of working with some of the best Wedding Planners in town.

DreamGroup Productions is the proud reciepient of the "Best Wedding - 2009 BC Event Awards". They are the real pros with tons of experience in the Wedding business. When working with DreamGroup, I could be assured that everything else is taken care of, and I only need to focus on making the Bride and Bridal party beautiful!

Apart from dedicating their time and energy as Wedding and event planner, DreamGroup also offers a very comprehensive Wedding Planning Course for individuals who are seeking to learn from the best. In their own words, " This course is unlike any of the typical informational college programs being offered in Vancouver. Its purpose is not to educate Vancouver’s hopefuls by the hundreds, but rather to enlighten and inspire the career minded individual who has already acquired enough life experience to know that Wedding planning is the direction they are meant to take... If your desire is to become, not just a planner, but a GREAT Wedding planner, then this is the course for you. Not only learn “the basics” as taught in most planning courses, but be privy to a wealth of detailed advice, insight, and feedback from Vancouver’s leading Wedding planning company."

If you're looking for a truly professional and reputable Wedding Planning school in Vancouver, do check out their course details.

Music Vancouver by Luis Giraldo - Wedding Music at its Best !

Brides and Grooms are always on the lookout for a good band. In Vancouver, there are numerous talented musicians, but it's not easy to find the ideal ones just off the internet. It's also time-consuming to audition every available group during the hectic wedding planning process.

Luis Giraldo is known as one of Vancouver's hottest Live Jazz Musicians. We met him and his band - Music Vancouver, at our cousin's wedding, and invited them to perform again at my parents-in-law's wedding anniversary party. Luis specializes in Instrumental or Vocal Jazz, Latin, and Romantic Pop Favourites. His music added a lovely mood and really complemented our event beautifully. The standard of their musical performance was impressive, with our guests responding frequently in spontaneous applause. Of course, everybody had a great time on the dance floor, too!

As a vendor, Luis was also very professional, organized, and accommodating with our needs and requests -- a real pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Luis and Music Vancouver for any wedding, social or corporate event.

Check out his Audio Samples. You will not be disappointed..!
