Sydney Power

Specializing in Wedding Day Essentials & Full Wedding Planning & Design

“It was a magical day and it couldn’t have happened without Sydney’s expert knowledge and helpful advice, guiding us through the logistics and small details we would’ve never thought about.” 

 

Sydney has been passionate about weddings for as long as she can remember, but has officially been working within the wedding industry for just over 7 years. She completed her Bachelor of Hospitality Management at Vancouver Island University and soon after obtained her wedding planning certification with The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC).

A romantic at heart and passionate about creating beautiful sentimental moments, Sydney loves creating and planning magical experiences. “I love capturing what my clients have dreamed up in their heads and bringing it to life for them. Getting to know my clients and learning about what’s important to them is my favourite part.”

In her downtime, Sydney feels there’s nothing quite like getting lost in a great book with a comforting cup of tea.

“I put my heart and soul into my work and have so much passion for creating events that people remember for all the right reasons.”

Sydney’s ability to stay calm under pressure and think fast on her feet are certainly an asset, however, her preferred method in preparing for an exceptional wedding outcome is to plan in a preventative way and anticipate anything that could arise and have a solution in place to manage those situations.

“You are a gem. Thank you for your hustle, your passion, and your dedication to my happiness!”

“The WOW moments of a well planned and executed celebration can’t be topped! Paying attention to all the little things that add up in creating an experience that is truly fluid and impressive is the best part for me!”

On Her Mind… “I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love.” The Vow

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 that we didn’t need to look anywhere else. She is a pleasure to work with and her big smile, bubbly personality, and enthusiasm 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, the rehearsal, and all the small details we would’ve never thought about.

Sydney is very responsive and coordinated smoothly with all our vendors, ensuring our vision was executed properly.  All we had to do on the big day was relax and enjoy the moment. I had multiple friends comment on how 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.

We went back and fourth on whether we wanted to hire a wedding coordinator for our summer camp wedding weekend. Thank goodness we decided to hire Sydney from DreamGroup – a total game changer.

The minute she showed up on site for Friday, I felt myself finally feel comfortable enough to let go – I trusted she knew what to do and would take it from there. She did NOT disappoint. I was able to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend with my favorite people. She helped answer guest questions, set up table and reception décor, direct our friends and family with where to put things, and eased my mind on the day of the wedding. She even walked around our dance floor to hand out late night pizza. 🙂

The best part… it felt like an extra (really organized!!) friend joined us for our big day! She was so friendly, bubbly, and comfortable with everyone. I can thank Sydney and Kate for ensuring our wedding day was the best day ever!! Thanks for helping put our vision into reality!

We had the pleasure of working with Sydney for my wedding that we planned in 4 months! We hit it off right off the bat and she understood my personality and was able to tailor her way of communicating and planning to me. Sydney understood my vision and truly made it come to life.

She made the whole wedding process easy, she was always available for me to talk to, ask questions, ease my mind, or just check in. Sydney was able to help me make adjustments as needed and help communicate with all my vendors which was not always the easiest task! Sydney was just simply an amazing event/wedding planner & became an amazing friend throughout this process and i would recommend her to absolutely anyone, we could not have been happier!

We really debated on hiring a planner for our wedding; and let me tell you – it was the greatest decision we made. Sydney Power was a friend from the first day we met on a zoom meet and greet. She rolled with our ever-changing punches over 20 months, and eased every irrational anxiety and worry that came up.

The best compliment we received from a guest after the wedding was how relaxed we looked and how much fun we were having on the day compared to other weddings they had been to. We fully credit this to Sydney (and her assistant on the day Laura who also is a GEM). Not only did Sydney help us find and pick the most amazing vendor dream team, she helped us navigate family dynamics, last minute venue layout changes, fixed problems before we even knew there was one, and truly became a friend in the process.

On the wedding day she was somehow everywhere all at once, setting up our perfect reception space, handling all our vendors and deliveries, and also always there to make sure my dress was perfectly fluffed. A week post wedding she is still making sure we are doing well and helping us wrap up all the post-wedding to-dos. We could not have imagined our day without Sydney being a part of it and I cannot recommend her or DreamGroup enough.
No matter how Type A or organized you are, having Sydney plan alongside you will be the best decision you make to ensure the wedding planning process and your day is FUN, enjoyable, and not stressful. We love you Sydney! xo

We interviewed 6 different companies before deciding on DreamGroup and we are so happy we chose them. Our coordinator, Sydney Power, was outstanding and such a joy to work with. No matter what curveballs we threw at her (even some at the very last minute), Sydney handled it with ease. Our wedding day required us to go all over the GVRD and she coordinated the transportation and timeline to perfection.

With Sydney as our coordinator, we definitely felt anything was possible. We always felt comfortable and at ease because we knew Sydney had our backs and could fix any problems that arose. We have no problem recommending DreamGroup and especially Sydney!!! As a bonus, we definitely come out feeling we got great value for our money.

Sydney was indispensable for my wedding. The bride got COVID the day before and naturally, things were very hectic reorganizing everything into a distanced ceremony in only six hours. Sydney had my back through the whole thing making sure that we covered all of our bases. She even woke up at 6 am on the day to make sure that we got everything done.

When she arrived at the ceremony she didn’t stop moving, making sure that everything that we had changed happened the way it was supposed to. She covered a lot of ground considering how much time we had to change everything.

We feared the worst for what our wedding would become but with Sydney’s help, it was even better than I thought it could be. She is organized and determined and even before it hit the fan she was easy to communicate with and helpful. I would hire her again anytime!

Sydney was absolutely amazing! She listened to our vision and plans and made them a reality. The day of our wedding, she took any worries we had and handled our wedding ceremony and reception professionally and in the most organized way. We felt no stress whatsoever the day of our wedding. She kept in contact with us and helped out in every way. She completely understood what we wanted on our big day and made it happen.

We highly recommend her if you are planning your wedding and do not want to worry about anything, especially on your big day. We are so thankful to have worked with her because our wedding was exactly if not more than what we expected.
