Nicole was extremely helpful and invested in our wedding plans right off the bat. In all of our wedding coordination it was clear that she cared and wanted to make our day special. I would recommend having Nicole and Montecito Weddings help plan a wedding to anyone.

My now husband and I wanted a VERY VERY VERY small wedding and our budget is the same. We found Montecito Weddings when we searched for an all inclusive packages via the interwebs. We ended up getting one of the "Blue Diamond" packages that included a ceremony and dinner (score!). Our goal is to have a buddhist ceremony, we wanted our colors to be blue & green ( our favorite colors), have the wedding during a weekday so we don't get grandpa in a speedo sun-bathing in the background of our photos, and our overall goal is to just show up. We didn't want to make any decisions regarding flowers or any of those small details that turn people into bride & groomzillas. Nicole the wedding planner was amazeballs. She made the whole process soooooooooooooooooooooo easy. I mean the only thing I really had to worry about was where to get my hair & makeup done; since we don't live in the area. We initially met her at least a year before our wedding date; which gave us plenty of time to make any adjustments to the package. We did have some restrictions, since my husband does have pollen and food allergies. Nicole was SUPER accommodating regarding those requests. I did have to chose colors and tell her what kind of flowers we could have, I basically gave her my "Soon to be Mrs" pinterest board. I think that made it so much easier in communicating what we wanted/expected.
The day came and everything went like how it's suppose to with the ceremony, and the dinner on the beach. Everything was beautiful down to the little details. Dinner was provided along with the package & photographer too. If we had to pick which part of the wedding we were like "meh" about, is the tri-tip. A couple people didn't like to see pink & wanted it cooked more. Other than that, everything exceeded our expectations, seriously.

Nicole and her team did a fantastic job at our little 40 person wedding ceremony. They set up white chairs, chuppah with fabric and starfish detail, and a space for our officiant which happened to be Nicole at Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California. I couldn't be happier with the services received from this company. In addition to providing officiant services along with ceremony set up, they worked with a florist to create my bouquet, bridesmaids bouquet, boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, and work directly with a photographer that captured the entire ceremony and photos afterwards. I highly recommend them if you are looking for small wedding ceremony services at the beach, courthouse, etc.

Montecito Weddings is AMAZING! Our ceremony took place at Butterfly Beach, the set up was breathtaking. Nicole coordinated our 20+ bridal party perfectly and Sarah gave a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony that left my husband teary-eyed. It was a marvelous day and Sarah really helped to make it that much more special. We appreciate everyone at Montecito Weddings who took care of every detail, from the rehearsal to the set up, music, ceremony, and clean up. Glad we were able to have you do our wedding!

Sarah Farmer was an excellent wedding officiant. She had an amazing speaking voice and was very professional. She listened to us as to what we did and did not want read at our ceremony. She was a pleasure to work with.

Sarah And Kim provided such a beautiful experience for our very small wedding. We purchased the "Santa Barbara Special". Although our package was one of the cheaper ones, they put in just as much effort to make everything perfect and run smoothly as a big wedding package. Without a doubt I would refer them again and again to friends and family. They truly are professionals in the business and lovely people to cross paths with.

I read the reviews before deciding to hire Sarah and when I first started the planning about 6 months before the wedding, she was very professional and responsive. However, after about a month, she became very hard to reach. She would take at least a couple weeks to respond to emails, always out of town or had something else going on. I figured she was just busy though, so didn't worry too much about it. I flew in from out of state so only had a couple days to get final things together before the wedding day, then at the rehearsal dinner, we showed up to the site and she told us it was double booked and we had to find somewhere else. She claimed no responsibility and said it was the parks department and she had taken care of it months ago. I guess she never double checked the reservation though, because we found ourselves without a venue less than 24 hours before the wedding on a Friday night. We spent the time we should have been at a rehearsal dinner running around Santa Barbara looking for an alternate site. After about an hour of trying to find places, she told us she had to leave because she was already 45 minutes late to officiate another wedding ceremony and we were shocked. We then went to find a spot on our own, then told her about it. Not only that, when we drove by the original spot the day of the wedding, it was wide open!

She did end up pulling it together the day of the event, but the stress and uncertainty leading up to it was not something I would recommend to anyone. Maybe we just had bad luck, but I definitely would think twice before using Sarah. I think she has overbooked herself and may not be able to pay the attention deserved to each individual wedding.

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.
