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. 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. Read less

It with with great pleasure and emotion that I give Kim with Weddings By The Sea this review. I wish there was more I could do to express just much she helped save and make my wedding. I was lost in the planning process, making mistakes left and right and just praying that I would figure out where to have our wedding, how to make it beautiful and how to accommodate our guests needs, as well as our own.

Kim rescued me....she took my call even though it's so close to the wedding...she was so kind, so responsive, so personal - and she is already handling another wedding on our day. Out of the kindness of her heart, she agreed to help me even though it was too late to hire her as a day-of coordinator. She took over and called my caterers and saved me money, took care of the balances so I had less to do, she told me where to have our ceremony and is meeting us the day before to walk us through everything. She offered up her beautiful decorations because I had none and touched on all bases where I hadn't even begun to organize or think about.

Kim, you are a wedding angel and genius. I hope that any bride who is lucky enough to have your help, treats you with the utmost respect - I can't believe how you transformed our plans and this process. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We take great pleasure in providing this recommendation for Weddings By The Sea. Because we were traveling to the Santa Barbara area for our wedding, all arrangements were easily arranged by email. The officiant sent us a proposed script for the ceremony and we were able to approve and/or make minor revisions. When we arrived in Santa Barbara, we had precise directions on how to get to the private beach where the ceremony was to take place. Fifteen minutes before the appointed time we arrived at the private beach and were met by Kim, the planner, and Dusty, the officiant. We signed the marriage documents and then were ushered onto the beach where we would say our vows. The sun was beginning to set; there was a slight breeze; the temperature was comfortable; and we stood just several yards from the surf. During the ceremony Kim took dozens and dozens of pictures from all angles, including close-ups of the rings going on our fingers. There was also a beautiful picture of our kiss at the end of the ceremony. Kim and Dusty turned our marriage fantasy into a wonderful reality. We truly valued and benefited from Kim’s expertise and experience. Ours was really a wonderfully perfect wedding. Kim made the whole process effortless and everything simply fell into place perfectly. We recommend Weddings by the Sea whole-heartedly without reservation or hesitation.

We wanted a wedding by the sea and the beach we had originally booked was getting crowded. and had ther issues we were not aware of.
Our planner who is a local, not only warned us in advance of the isue but alos found an almost private beach were we eneded up having the ceremony.

She was very responsive and patient with our lack of responsiveness and made the whole process stress free.

Kim is a fantastic coordinator and officiant who offers unparalleled support for her clients. The dreamy beach wedding that I attended took place on Summerland Beach and was made intimate and romantic by the unity sand ceremony and the sand dollar ceremony. Kim had the entire venue set up long before the guests and bride and groom arrived and provided champagne for a toast after a heartwarming and personalized ceremony. She is a bride's dream when it comes to having a relaxed wedding that is completely stress-free! She handles everything for you in a professional and timely manner and has an infectiously fun personality as well. It's obvious that she is as excited for your special day as you are!

Kim Colombini of Weddings by the Sea is the BEST! We used her for our wedding and her customer service is 2nd to none, period. She is professional, friendly, and extremely patient. We are from out of town and she allowed us to use her garage to storage things before and after the wedding, now that's a personal touch. Kim's flexibility is amazing. She worked with our budget and worked as if we were her only client. I cannot get over how approachable and friendly she is. We met a business vendor with Kim but more importantly we made a new friend. Now every time we visit Santa Barbara from now on we will reach out to Kim to catch up. We strongly recommend Kim to anyone wanting a friendly and professional wedding planner. THANK YOU KIM FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING MEMORABLE!
