Often a couple will choose a planner solely based on their familiarity with their venue and although that can be a safe choice, it’s not a happiness guarantee!  There’s something to be said for unique perspectives and fresh ideas balanced by expertise and a reputation for excellence.  There’s no venue DreamGroup can’t make magic happen at because to us, it’s so much more than just knowing a venue.  It’s about knowing what’s going to be important to you and your guests, what to challenge and question, what to consider and include, and how to execute the overall celebration in the most thoughtful way possible.  That’s called experience.
