My name is Kim Colombini and I am the Owner of Weddings by the Sea. Weddings by the Sea is unique in that I offer stress-free, affordable and all inclusive packages as well as "Design Your Own Package" to all my couples.

I am the Professional Photographer, I issue the Marriage License, I am the floral designer and I personally coordinate all setups on the beach as well as at the Courthouse and local parks. I am also a recently ordained minister. You show up for your wedding day looking beautiful (and handsome) ready to start your life together as husband and wife.

I am also a Notary and able to issue Confidential Marriage Licenses. I am one of four Notaries in the County of Santa Barbara that can issue Confidential Marriage Licenses. This saves you from having to go together to the Recorder's office, complete an application on the computer and standing in line. I will issue your license, complete the application for certified copies for you and notarize and file all documents. The Recorder's Office will send you a Certified Copy (or more if you wish) directly to you.

I am well versed on unique locations for your Romantic Santa Barbara Wedding Ceremony and I work closely with my couples to plan a beautiful ceremony. I can also recommend many wonderful places for your Wedding Dinner or Wedding Reception and am also a Day of Wedding Coordinator.

Please call me for a consultation in person or on-the-phone at 805-455-9318 (cell) or visit my website at www.SantaBarbaraWeddingsSite.com. You can also email me at weddingsbythesea.kim@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you and being part of your special day.

Kim made our day so amazing! We were renewing our vows after 22 years of marriage. I had a big traditional church wedding the first time and I thought it would be impossible to top. But, Kim made our vow renewal so special that I loved it even more than our original wedding day. She had every detail down perfectly and it was absolutely lovely! The beach was romantic and secluded and the harp player set the mood for our amazing ceremony. I couldn't have have asked for anything more. I highly recommend using Kim and she has terrerific ideas and recommendations! I have decided to always stay in contact with her as I find her to be such a special person.

We can not thank Kim enough for the truly incredible photos she took of us at our elopement. We decided to elope by ourselves, having photos to share later were very important to us.
I am a huge pintrest user and had been looking at photos posted from weddings at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Kim's website and photos instantly made me comfortable that she was the PERFECT photographer for us.
Kim took the time to email us and in person, she put us to ease instantly. She is someone you meet and who you feel that she hears you and listens to what you need.
Every photo sent to us was a gem. She caught incredible details both close up and far away that captured more than we could have hoped for.
She was prompt with getting our papers filed and getting us our photos.
We cannot thank her enough!
Book her NOW!

We think Kim from Weddings By The Sea deserve a lot more than 5 stars. We were passing by Santa Barbara on a cruise from San Fransico to Encenada, Mexico. After checking every location along our cruise for wedding sites and we picked Weddings By The Sea. We would never thought that we can have a nice wedding due to be far away from home and we did not know who Kim was. After emails / texts/phone called we had a perfect wedding. Kim gave us a perfect wedding that we can never for get. You can check out my facebook page by search Benjamin Ethan Thai to see our wedding pictures. Kim is not our wedding planner anymore but she is part of our family now. KIM thank you so much for giving us the best memory of our wedding better than we can dream of. There are not enought words out there that we can thank you, all we can say is WE LOVE YOU. Every picture of us with big smiles on our face is all thanks to you KIM. You made us so happy.

Kim was absolutely, positively amazing to work with. Weddings by the Sea is your go-to for effortless destination wedding planning. My husband and I chose to elope, and with a quick exchange of several emails, we arrived only 15 minutes prior to our wedding time, and it was so amazing! :) Sarah Farmer was a great officiant, and my pictures by Kim turned out so beautiful. I cannot describe the relaxed feeling we had going into eloping, and were extremely pleased with all the details that went into the wedding. Kim is so communicative, personable, and professional, and I wish we lived closer :) Thank you, Weddings by the Sea, for providing us with the wedding of our dreams.

We can not begin to say enough great things about Kim Colombini and the services she provided. Having never been married or helped plan a wedding, we were at a loss on where to begin! All we knew was we wanted to be married on a beach in California! Communication with Kim was great throughout the entire process. She helped us choose a venue and took care of all of the details (applications, officiant, photography, decorations, music, license, etc) and she had some fun and creative suggestions based upon our personalities to customize the wedding of our dreams! Revered Sarah weaved our love story into the ceremony and even included our friends in the ceremony via Skype. It was such an incredible, stress free day that we are already discussing plans with Kim to renew our vows on our one year anniversary!
