Dream Makers feel every wedding dream is beautiful and unique. One bride dreams of beautiful mountains with a quaint bridge to walk across and bag pipers music lilting across the hills while another dreams of flowers and candles everywhere surrounded by family and friends. Our knowledge of vendors, attention to the bride’s unique personality, ability to see beyond the ordinary, a high attention to detail, and our love for this unique business is what sets Dream Makers apart.


"I feel my ability to be perceptive of the wishes and dreams of the bride and attention to the family are some of my greatest strengths. My desire is to see the bride reach the end of her wedding day full of joy and peace and a wealth of memories to reflect upon," says Linda Ford, President of Dream Makers. The journey towards your wedding day can be both exciting and overwhelming. At the end of the day the journey is about a marriage. It is my job to keep us focused on that truth. It is my joy to make the journey stress free and exciting!

Dream Makers is very excited to have available an ordained non-denominational minister, David Ford, who has done lots of weddings at many different sites. He absolutely loves the priviledge of bringing two people in love together and to be able to be part of that elebration. Read less

DreamMakers provided exceptional service and truly went above and beyond for our wedding. Linda enveloped our daughter with love and joy and saved me, the mother-of-the-bride, from stress with her expertise and tender care. We were not just clients to her, we became her family.

Linda was such a pleasure to work with. She knew all the vendors and the area which made it a lot easier on us. She found the most precious place to get married and we were the first wedding at this site! Very cool.
She worked for over a year on planning and was always easy to get a hold of no matter what time or day. It was a very stress free process and Im forever thankful for her and Davids help.

Linda and David were the nicest people I have ever met. They were so helpful and caring, which made me feel at ease on such a stressful day. Linda and David are the kind of people that are genuine and you know that they will be in touch with you over the years to come. I am so thankful that I was connected with Dreammakers. My wedding would not have been the same without them.

I am the mother of the groom so I did not work with Linda quite as much as the bride's family did but I spent a day with her and I was in touch with her several times by email and phone. She was always very helpful and I appreciated her input since I live in SC and the wedding was at Grandfather Mountain. David was wonderful and very professional under some unusual circumstances. We appreciated all that both of them did to make the weekend special.

Linda was a true dream maker! She was incredibly helpful, positive, and supportive. She took our dream and made it a reality. No joke. Our wedding really was more perfect than we could have ever imagined. She was very accessible, coordinated the multitudes of vendors, was a calm in the storm. She definitely blocked the little details from me and my family so we could just enjoy the weekend and not worry about the little things. I wholeheartedly recommend her. Hiring her was definitely the best money I spent for the whole event (except maybe the dress. Loved the dress :) ).

Linda and David were a complete pleasure to work with. We asked them to counsel us for our pre-marital counseling and they were extremely passionate, accomodating and helpful to us throughout our time with them. They are highly recommended to any bride and groom that want some sanity in the middle of the craziest time of your life!

I've worked with Linda at Dream Maker on several levels for several years. Our first interaction was just playing bagpipes at some of the weddings she was running. Later she asked us to be involved in weddings that she was producing. In all cases... even in the earliest weddings the events were planned, and executed professionally.

Recently Linda and Reverend David Ford... were a part of my daughter's wedding. The wedding that we produced together was complicated, very deep in details.... and excellently managed and produced.

I am a technical producer in my everyday career life and have been for many years... having worked with three US presidents... and international entertainment personalities and acts such as the Stones, Elton John... and many more. I bring this up because as a tech producer for events of that magnitude... you MUST always have a plan and a back up plan... and most importantly... you must be able to think on your feet...often seeing the problem before it happens... and putting a solution in place before the train wreck happens.... Linda Ford at Dream Makers is that type of professional.

It was to my great relief and pleasure that she agreed to help me with my daughters wedding.

If you want a wedding that you and your family and friends will remember... one that you will enjoy... one that you won't have to worry about the color of the ribbon on center pieces… the place settings on the tables at the reception ... or the protocol for the processionals... then you are looking for Linda to be your wedding planner. The details DON’T take care of themselves… Linda takes care of them.

Linda worked very hard for everything to come together for our daughter's wedding including finding photographer, flowers, cake, music, DJ, location...and all this within 2 months and while trying to stay within a "budget".
She was always available for any question we had. My daughter and her husband, along with my husband and I were extremely happy with our daughter's wedding day!

Linda was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. She knows all the best vendors (all of the vendors she recommended and arranged for us provided top quality service and worked with us to make our day perfect). She answered all of our questions and concerns along the way and made the whole planning experience fun and very low-stress. I would highly recommended her services for any wedding in the NC mountains. The services she provides are well beyond the fee she charges and because of her recommendations, we probably still saved money in the end. If you can't afford her services as a planner, I know she also offers the service of handling all the vendors and the wedding day timing on the wedding day itself, which I strongly recommend. The wedding day went so smoothly and we (as well as our bridesmaids, groomsmen, and parents) were able to get ready and enjoy the whole day without worrying about what was next, where the vendors were or whether everyone had been paid because she handled all of it. She even worked hard to move our ceremony back outside after it had stopped raining with only 30 minutes until the wedding. In addition to all of that, she is a truly wonderful and kind-hearted person and it was a joy to get to know her.
