I could not recommend Armando of Alegria by Design enough to any bride looking for a wedding planner and or designer. He was truly amazing to work with. I am not the type to write reviews, and in fact never have before for anything or anyone, but felt I must, so that future couples would not miss out on the opportunity to have such a wonderful person on their team and in their corner on the most important day of their lives. He would be an asset to anyone who needs help coordinating their wedding and bringing their vision to life. He helped to find great vendors for everything from invites to florals to rentals to escort cards to lighting and the list goes on. Armando coordinated all of my vendors into a flawless wedding day where nothing went wrong and no detail was missed. Because of him I got to enjoy my day and didn't have to think about a thing! Furthermore, Armando created a breathtaking, magical and beautiful design for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Personally, he kept me from meltdowns, was fun, responded to emails within minutes, really listened to me and understood me and who I was and who I was trying to become, all while getting my vision for my wedding just perfect. He took my words and inspiration photos and created the wedding of my dreams all while staying on budget. In him you will find a friend and confidant and someone who can execute your event with precision and perfection. I could not recommend someone more to anyone who wants to have a flawless wedding experience.

We hired Shauna as our day-of & month-of wedding coordinator for our wedding at the Riviera Mansion and it was the most well spent money of the entire wedding!! She was worth every penny! Shauna was incredibly professional and she really knows her stuff. We hired her approximately a year before the wedding and right away she began helping us plan and stay on track. Her vendor recommendations were very helpful for narrowing down the large number of potential vendors in Santa Barbara. For every question we asked along the way Shauna had a thoughtful and reasonable response- she always treated our questions and concerns as if they were completely valid even though I'm sure some of them were a bit silly :) Shauna made sure that every detail of our wedding was perfect. All of the vendors knew exactly when and where to arrive- it was perfectly orchestrated! Right before I walked down the aisle I ended up with a few minutes to take in all of my wedding decor inside the Riviera Mansion and it was all set up exactly as I had wanted it. Shauna's ability to bring my wedding vision to life was truly amazing! And Shauna herself is an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend working with Alegria by Design for your Santa Barbara wedding!

Thank you, Shauna! We are so very grateful for all of your help and guidance over the last year! Our wedding was absolute perfection :)

Our family and friends cannot express enough how amazing Shauna was in helping plan our daughters wedding. From the first meeting to the last detail, it was one of the most beautiful and fun nights of our lives. We used all the vendors that were recommended to us by Allegria, and each and every one did their job to perfection. We were able to sit back and enjoy every moment of this extraordinary day.

We had a FANTASTIC experience working with Shauna and the Alegria team for our wedding. They ensured that everything before, during, and after the wedding--the food, the layout, the vendors, the details the day of--were to our liking, and we could not be happier with how our wedding turned out! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Shauna was THE BEST. I’d highly recommend for her for any wedding or special event. She’s easy to work with, incredibly organized, prepared, personable, and went above and beyond to make my day memorable and stress-free. I can’t rave about her enough!

I can't even begin to express how grateful we are that we had Armando for our wedding/event planner!
From the moment I first got into contact with him, he said and did all the right things to put my mind at ease!
When my husband and I first decided to elope to california we were beyond excited, however the task of planning it all the way from Canada seemed extremely daunting.... Until Armando!
He went through absolutely every thing with me, we worked out a budget together, that I thought was very reasonable. He also kept me in the loop at all times, whether it was sending me a budget spreadsheet from vision boards and ideas.
All the vendors he recommended were so talented, easy to work with, and so flexible.
When the day of our wedding finally arrived i was blown out of the water. Even though I had already seen and gone through all the design plans with Armando seeing it in person was so much more the I could have ever asked for. Armando went above and beyond with everything, the place was picture perfect and there were so many personal touches incorporated. The day ran so smoothly and Armando was there for it all, whether it was fixing my hair for pictures or making my family laugh at dinner.

Our day was Beyond perfect and I wish every bride could be as lucky as me. I felt incredibly lucky to have had such a stress free day and not have to worry about a single thing. It made it so much easier to focus on all the wonderful things and let us create memories we will always cherish.

We highly recommend Armando and Alegria By Design to be anyone's wedding planner. Armando was awesome. We had our wedding reception in our backyard, and his ideas totally transformed the space into a gorgeous and magical venue. He took the time to get to know us and what our thoughts and ideas were, and then matched us with the best caterer, photographer, florist, lighting people, rental company and sound company for our needs. We loved everyone and it was an incredible wedding and reception. He was easy to work with and flexible with all of our last minute changes. We couldn't give a better recommendation for anyone!

I've known Armando for years from living in Santa Barbara and when it came down to planning my wedding he was the only person I could think of hiring to help keep me organized and help my fiance and I plan our special day. Armando's extraordinary attention to detail, knowledge of the wedding industry, flawless design and style expertise and overall professionalism makes him an excellent choice for wedding planning services. We hired Armando mostly of Day of Coordination for our October 10th wedding however he was always available for questions and offered a lot of guidance along the way whenever we needed something. He made time to meet with us on more than one occasion to talk about the wedding, help us come up with ideas and understand what was important to us about the wedding so he could execute our vision. On the wedding day I didn't have to worry about anything! He was there earlier than expected to start setting things up, meet with the venue staff and other vendors to make sure everything was going as planned on running on time. He checked in on me and my wedding party to keep us informed on what was going on as guests started to arrive and to make sure I was ok and to see if I needed anything and be there to calm my nerves. He is very professional and personable and we were very happy with the services we received. We highly recommend Armando from Alegria by Design for your wedding needs!

If you are getting married in Santa Barbara, Armando Martinez and Alegria by Design are the ONLY option for your wedding planner! We live in Texas and were referred to Armando by Bacara (where we got married). He was professional, talented, punctual, fun and overall AWESOME!!! He made the whole process seamless from beginning to end. He went above and beyond to make our wedding the most fun and beautiful weekend of our life!!! He totally got me! He gave guidance in areas I knew nothing about and supported my overall vision. Planning a destination wedding can be very stressful, but I never worried knowing Armando was in my corner. He made me feel like I was the only wedding he was planning over the course of our engagement, while he had other weddings and events almost every weekend. He has mastered the art of wedding planning! We love you Armando and Alegria!!!
