My wife and I fortunate and blessed to have found Sarah, and Montecito Weddings to help us plan and execute our intimate ceremony. It's amazing to work with someone so caring, down to earth and easy-going such as Sarah - she's a rock star! She kept in constant communication with us, up to the big day. Any changes or tidbits she didn't hesitate to accommodate. It's funny how a 5-person guest list ended up being 13 people + bride and groom, lol! She definitely made this wedding planning painless (I wasn't some sort of GroomZilla, was I, LOL).

The venue (even though we changed it from the Clock Tower to the Mural Room), was perfect! Much more intimate for us and the rest of the family. The ceremony was very beautiful and heartfelt, I almost shed a tear, haha! It was an awesome weekend getaway to get married in Santa Barbara... BIG THANKS, to Sarah and Montecito Weddings! PS: Kim gets KUDOS here too, for being such an awesome photographer and notary. We love you Sarah and Kim!

I would highly recommend them... even for the budget-minded and/or intimate ceremony-type peoples.

My wedding took place on September 15, 2012 at Manning Park in Santa Barbara. I purchased the Garden package. The wedding ceremony was beautiful! Everything was taken care of. I had a guest list of about 70 and everything went smoothly. I added a couple things to the package that Sarah was able to take care of. I am from Los Angeles so it was nice to be able to email her questions. She was always very nice and sweet on the phone, email and in person. Julio and I are so glad we worked with her for our wedding! Thanks Sarah! xoxo

I can not say enough about the services that thiscompany provided. My wedding was magical from start to finish. I do not like to procastinate so I started planning my wedding 1 1/2 in advance. Although there was plenty of time to plan and prepare Sarah was willing to answer question and provide information to set my mind at easy. I made several changes along the way, even up to a few days before and she always returned my emails and phone calls almost immediately. Everything was perfect, from set-up to pictures. They made this day come together with ease. Words can not express my beautiful day!

My wife and I wanted an elegant, first-class, wedding for around 20 people and I had no idea how difficult it would be to plan this. We are planning a larger wedding next year but we wanted an intimate gathering for immediate family and our closest friends before we had to move away for work.

Many of the nicer venues I called have a 40 person minimum or the minimum food and beverage requirement would have made the per person cost extraordinary. We have no problem paying for quality but we do have a problem when the value these venues were offering was just not equal to the price.

We were getting frustrated and thinking about going to Las Vegas but my wife was really against this idea. I agreed to make one last search and that's when I found Montecito Weddings. Sarah and her staff provided exactly what we were looking for at an excellent price!

Sarah helped us find a stunning location for our ceremony right across from the Four Seasons, overlooking the ocean at Butterfly Beach. Our reception was in a magnificent garden in Montecito.

Sarah hired a wonderful caterer and our guests raved about the food. Sarah also provided a very talented photographer and an amazing videographer who delivered our high definition video within a week. The wedding looks amazing on our 60 inch TV. We can't wait to see the pictures.

Sarah's ceremony was very special to us. She is kind and very easy to work with. There is really no other company that provides this level of service at any price.

My parents are singing her praises to their friends and I would recommend her services to anyone I know who is looking for an officiant. Sarah met my husband for the first time the day before the ceremony and he couldn't have been happier with my pick in Sarah :) The ceremony ran so smoothly and it was quick but beautiful, exactly what we wanted. Thank you Sarah for making my wedding a wonderful success!!!!!!

Montecito Weddings provided the ceremony for our wedding. My husband and I planned a destination wedding and were first impressed with Montecito Weddings web site and the reviews. After speaking with Sarah Coryell Farmer on the telephone I was impressed with her as well. She helped us plan our ceremony and worked with us to stay within our budget. She assisted us in the verbiage of the ceremony and made it very personal. She added many special touches that made the whole experience very pleasurable. Her professionalism was excellent and our guests were impressed with her. Since we were planning a destination wedding in Santa Barbara it was very important to have an open line of communication and Sarah kept us informed during the whole process. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and are very pleased that we chose to have Sarah officiate our special day.

Rev. Sarah is AMAZING! Even if money was no option, and it was, as me and my husband are full time graduate students, and working for free to fullfill our internship requirements, we wouldn't have changed a single thing about our wedding.

Don't be fooled if she doesn’t return your first call/inquiry email immediately. She is frequently out of town, but as soon as she returns, she contacts you, and is incredibly thorough. She is extremely accommodating, and never displays any frustration if you need to make modifications.

If you happen to have an awkward interaction with one of her staff members, she will go out of her way to contact you, defuse the situation, and speak to the staff member. She is always in a pleasant mood, her optimism and cheer is infectious.

Despite the fact our families were a very hard crowd (Armenian, traditional, and not pleased with our choice to have an outdoor wedding) everyone loved Rev. Sarah. She tactfully plugged in some jokes/humor into our ceremony, and people couldn't stop chuckling. We were in disbelief as we had a very tough crowd.

We ran a few minutes late to our own wedding, and called Rev. Sarah panicky. She told us to she would be there waiting for us, assured us to stay calm, to drive safely, and let us know everyone was eagerly awaiting us, and everything looked lovely!

If we could redo our wedding, we wouldn't change a single thing. We couldn't have been in better hands! One of our friends who got married earlier this year, had an extremely extravagant wedding ($100,000), and attended our wedding, told us they would like to redo their vows for their first anniversary with Rev. Sarah, at our location (Leadbetter Beach). We were pleasantly surprised, as our wedding cost us a little under $4,000.

This place was wonderful. I was planning my wedding from far away and didn't know what expect. It's almost like taking a gamble and I won the jackpot. They went out of their way to accommodate every little detail. From flowers to music and even an extra bouquet 5 minutes before the ceremony started. Everything went smooth and perfect. They even had Some songs picked for us when we didn't know what to dance to. I was blown away how great everything and everyone was. I would totally go to them again if I were to renew my vows. Thank you guys so much for my perfect day I couldn't asks for a better one.

My beautiful new wife and I had the absolute pleasure of leaving our all-important wedding day in the hands of the resourceful, kind, and professional people at Montecito Weddings. Having many sites to choose from, my wife and I chose the Sunken Gardens at the Santa Barbara Courthouse (which is stunningly beautiful in March). The Reverend Sarah Farmer worked intimately with us to accommodate all of the details that we desired to make our day the most spectacular and romantic event imaginable. Sarah was so helpful in guiding our thoughts and ideas into a workable ceremony which she delivered beyond the point of our high expectations. Her crews were quick, efficient, and most importantly detailed to an impressive extent. Montecito Weddings is a very personal, beautiful, and affordable service that puts a lot of effort into giving their clients a day to remember for the rest of their lives. Their service packages come with many different locations, back-drops, and styles that can fit most people’s budgets and personality styles. My wife and I are still glowing over the experience weeks after the fact- remembering how Reverend Sarah's staff was on target and timely about each step along the way, how the guest’s chairs and the ceremony arch looked stunning with flowers and lace intertwined to give a very classy look, how the photographer was very kind and patient in capturing every tender moment, how the musicians (a classical guitarist and violinist) played our requested music and set the moods for the brides entrance, and how the Reverend Sarah conducted the most beautiful ceremony which was personalized to our unique personalities. Overall, our experience with Montecito Weddings was everything that could have ever dreamed about, especially considering the low prices and the beautiful venue of the courthouse courtyard. We did not have any stressful moments in leaving many important responsibilities in Sarah’s capable hands. I highly recommend using this service and enjoying memories that will last a lifetime.

We are sooo happy that we went with Montecito Weddings! It was an incredibly amazing process and experience. Our coordinator (Sarah) was beyond wonderful. She made everything so effortless and easy. The ceremony was simple, yet gorgeous and it was absolutely everything and more than I could have imagined. The price of everything was very affordable, and for everything they provided and the service we received, we would have paid more! The pictures turned out amazing too! We are beyond satisfied and would definitely refer people!!! It was an incredible day!

You are both so sweet, and such smiles from all of your guests tells me that everyone definitely supports the two of you in your marriage! As a parent myself, your father's smile will remain with me always :) Blessings and joy to you both, Sarah

Oh my god! Sarah was our angel. she made our wishes come true. We are from Canada and wanted a "real beach" wedding. Montecito Weddings was the only one that catered to all of our needs. We contacted Sarah about 6 months prior to our wedding. Yes, most of the communication was done via email as I was too busy to even blink and then there was the time difference. We were working on opposite clocks ha ha.
Sarah planned everything and even surprised us with some extras. She is amazing!! I would never change a thing. She was very patient and understanding and gave us that fairytale sunset beach wedding we always dreamt of only this was much better than we even imagined. I felt like a movie star as the onlookers complimented everything they laid eyes on. There was another wedding a little further down the beach and they passed by to say that they should have gone with Montecito Weddings instead! Now thats a compliment!! I had the best setup, the best cake, the best officiant - the best of everything. We stayed at the Four Seasons and the ceremony was just across the street and a little further down on Butterfly Beach. Our ceremony was such a heartfelt intimate one, that I fell as if I was falling in love again. It brought such meaning and tenderness. I think that both Sarah and Scott were an amazing team. They bring such love with them and thats what you need - to be surrounded by love and support. They're the perfect pair for a romantic meaningful ceremony.
The pictures captured every moment showing only happy and fun and love! Scott would jump out of nowhere and capture the moment - even if its you pondering just before the walk down the aisle, or that sneak of a kiss. It's like he had a monitor on our every movement and could predict what's going to happen next. The food was delicious, the service was very warm and the staff catered to our every need. The cake was soo damn good! Red Raspberry Velvet, YUM-E! We would definitely be doing a Montecito again! This is an A++ for sure. The price is very affordable and you get everything done for you. No headache, no stress. According to Sarah - All you need is love and each other, she takes care of the rest. This is really all that you need. The rest just happens, it's really a dream come true.

Wow, Felicia and Chandie you two are simply the best, thank you! Being a part of your wedding day was such an honor, I loved that you too are a "bling girl" like me and I could add in that extra little "sparkle" to your wedding and reception. My one regret is that the day went by too quickly and that you both are back in Canada... your are our "forever friends" and a part of the Montecito Weddings family now so please let us know when you are back on the West Coast, ok? Much love to you both and thank you for such wonderful and glowing memories of your experiences with us! xoxoxo, Sarah

When my fiance and I first started planning our wedding we were overwhelmed with the different things we had to get done, in such little time, 2 months. We had always wanted a wedding near the beach preferably near Carpinteria or Santa Barbara and we live about 2 hrs out as well. We found Montecito Weddings in Santa Barbara with Rev.Sarah 1 month and a half before the wedding date. Everything was done via phone and online and the entire process was the most easiest and non-stressful that I could have ever asked for. She was very prompt with responding to me emails and phone calls, making sure I understood everything that we needed to do, tending to every detail no matter how small. She even met with us in Santa Barbara 1 day to do a small walk through of what was supposed to happen on our wedding date at the ceremony location, and mind you she was sick that day and had lost her voice and still showed up for our appointment! She helped us out by recommending hotels and restaurants for the day since she knew the area better than we did. Everything went smoothly through the day of the wedding. My flowers she provided were gorgeous, the set up for the ceremony on the beach was beautiful. Unfortunately it did rain a bit on the day of, but she was able to rent out a tent to cover the chairs and guests and keep them out of the water. Despite the rain everyone loved it, it was an amazing day, we got compliments on our arch and decorations throughout the day. Rev. Sarah, Pastor Scott and their crew were awesome. We definitely recommend their services! We can't wait to see our photo's also. The photographer they provided was very professional as well. Thank you Montecito weddings for the most amazing day of our lives!

What a blessing to have found Montecito Weddings. Sarah was so helpful to work with, it's obvious she she has a passion for weddings and is very attentive to detail. Our ceremony on the beach was so romantic and Sarah spoke right to our hearts. Her photographer, Scot, is an amazing photographer, capturing shots that really brought out the romance in our fairytale wedding. Everything was so well thought out and very professional from the flowers, the setup, to the photography. Thank you so much!

We loved the tenderness of the ceremony and the ease in which they orchestrate all of the details. Having Santa Barbara as our destination wedding location made us decide to move here!

She provided almost everything... she helped me from location of the ceremony, arch & chairs at the beach ceremony, the decorations (set up), recommended a great bridal hair dresser, officiated our wedding ceremony, hel us out on getting our marriage license, recommended an awesome baker, almost everything... just ask. And the price... not expensive, she's very reasonable. I highly recommend her if your getting married in Santa Barbara :)

We are so happy we chose Sarah, Montecito Weddings, to handle our special day! Sarah took care of everything....I didnt need to worry about anything. We got married on May 5th at the Santa Barbara Courhouse, in the Sunken Gardens. For those of you that haven't been to visit the courthouse, it is breathtakingly gorgeous, inside and out...a must see! Sarah performed our ceremony, which we absolutely loved! She paid special attention to detail, which made me very happy! My flowers were soooo beautiful, Sarah did a wonderful job! The scenery was beautiful and the weather was perfect; we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Sarah was a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.

Sarah and her team were great! They did my chair ceremony set up at Padaro Beach, CA. Sarah has a wonderful calming spirit and was a joy to work with. She takes a little time to get back to emails, but is VERY organized and is on top of everything. She met us a month before so I could go over my vision of where I wanted chairs. I felt soooo comfortable after meeting with her that she had everything taken care of and she did. Her crew arrived early and even raked the sand to ensure a level area. She threw in a cute sign for free too! I would highly recommend her and her team for any kind of rental/set up. And if we did't already have our family pastor doing the ceremony, we would have booked her. She has an amazing spirt and presence.

Stop stressing if you hire Sarah because she really does have it covered. She has good taste, professional, never abrasive, and if you let her do the work you really can relax. And please please hire her notary to do all the legal work for you, I promise, it IS worth the fee. Specifics:

I hired Sarah mainly to plan the ceremony but turned out she helped with the reception too. I picked the package I wanted and added ala carte items as I wanted. Sarah confirmed the details (flowers, color theme, etc.)

Flexibility - If I could give her 10 stars on this I would. We chose to get married on the beach. The weather turned out to be horrific! There was 35mph winds on the beach (the news said hurricane speeds). Tables were turning over. Sarah quickly found a private home in the Santa Barbara hills with a beautiful yard that could accommodate the size of our party. Done and done. I didn't have to lift a finger.

That's what it's like working with Sarah, she takes care of it. Easy.

Bonus: I decided to have Sarah do the cake, and didn't tell her much other than I like square, I wanted carrot cake and chocolate. Risky, I know. But it was beautiful and delicious, and I'm picky!

A realistic caution: If Sarah doesn't respond within a few days, she will within the week. The few weeks right before your wedding, she's in contact with you daily if needed. And when she did respond, we often went back and forth right there because we were both on email at the same time. At one point, she was on vacation and took the time to respond to my email and sent me all the info I needed. Be patient, she's knows what she's doing, she's on top of it.

My wedding could not have been more perfect because of Rev. Farmer and her crew!

My father, who was not excited about a beach wedding, commented on it and said how fabulous her staff was! The day was magical and amazing! they paid attention to every detail and it would not have been perfect without them!!! Every bride should use their services!

Sarah and Montecito Weddings were amazing!! I planed my wedding from Utah and was really not sure what to expect. Sarah made my vision come to life. All I had to do is send Sarah pictures of the look I was going for and she carried out the rest. The best part is that Montecito Weddings is a one stop shop. Sarah and her crew handled absolutely everything. The venue, the licenses, flowers, photographer, notary services, food, cake...everything!!! It was so amazing to be able to work with just one person to plan an entire wedding. Our event surpassed all my expectations, I couldn't have asked for more. The only negative I have is that sometimes Sarah was hard to track down. But, to her credit it was the middle of the crazy wedding season. At the end of the day our wedding was more beautiful than I could have ever pictured or dreamed of. Sarah helped a typically stressful event become seamless, and allowed me to just enjoy the moment and not fret over logistics.

Brought up the marriage license right before we were about to walk down the aisle. Not good timing. Miscommunication was evident in the entire process, and times the coordinator set to contact us were not kept. The ceremony was great, but the level of professionalism is not up to par with expectations.

Montecito Weddings responded with the following comments:

Their package did not include the license, which was something which we discussed at our first meeting. When the couple did not provide the license on the day of the wedding, we immediately provided one for them through our notary. We would never leave anyone feeling stranded. We are extremely professional, and went out of our way to make their day special. Why this negative review should come after such glowing emails that were sent to me following their wedding day I do not know. What a shame.

Hi,

I hate to post a negative review, but I thought I should advise all brides about my experience. We planned to marry in Santa Barbara although we are from across the country. We were referred to Rev. Coryell by another minister who was not available on our preferred date. Our first conversation and email communication were great and she seemed perfect for our elopement.

Unfortunately, after we paid the deposit we did not hear from her. I did not think much of it at first because the whole point of an elopement is to have low stress. So, we planned to call her at least 3 - 4 days beforehand to discuss any final details.

I attempted to reach her by phone for several days before the wedding (scheduled on a Tuesday) and when she did not call back I started to panic. She finally responded at 4:00 pm on the eve of the wedding and seemed surprised that I was concerned. I explained to her that I thought something had happened to her or that she was no longer available. Plus, we had traveled so far just for this day and had been in contact with all other vendors including the photographer, classic car rental, restaurant, etc.

Could you believe that she got upset with me? She accused me of being "needy" because we wanted to have a brief conversation with her before the wedding day about our vows, etc., which made my fiance furious. She even told us that we could "sue her if we did not like it." What?? How does 1 initial conversation, 2 brief one paragraph emails, and wanting to speak with your minister a few days before equal being needy?? My fiance said that he did not want a person like her to marry us and that after waiting 6 years to get married in our dream location we could do much better. Well, I was hurt and disgusted, but I agreed and we put off the wedding because it was so upsetting.

Guess what? Initially, she was not willing to return our security deposit, but after much discussion she reluctantly agreed - but we haven't seen the deposit yet!

Please stay away unless you want someone where you just show up, say a few words, and get married. However, if you want a meaningful ceremony by a person who makes you feel special no matter the wedding size I would find someone else.

Montecito Weddings responded with the following comments:

I don't generally respond to negativity, but I would like to address this review honestly and with grace. I had communicated with the bride for many months prior to the wedding and every detail was attended to. It was to be a simple yet elegant elopement, what we specialize in. There may have been more calls and emails back and forth than most brides, but I accommodate for that because I understand how stressful planning a wedding can be. During our communications, I had told her that I would be out of town for the four days immediately prior to her wedding, but that all of our plans were firmly in place and that she could rest comfortably knowing that she could simply show up on her wedding day and everything would be perfect. Unfortunately she never had the opportunity to experience how heartfelt and meaningful our ceremonies are, and how detail oriented as a whole Montecito Weddings can be. Her reaction to me being out of town was unusual... I don't have a problem with the "diva" thing or with a person wanting to feel like a princess on your wedding day but screaming at me and insulting my company is not something I tolerate. I put a lot of love into what I do, but jusdging from the reviewer she is more focussed in life on vitriol and anger. It's a shame, I don't want anyone to feel unhappy, but I am pleased to read that those who have entrusted their sacred day to us have such glowing and lovely memories to show for it.
