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 805-220-6625 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

The nuances of her business fit our needs perfectly and we were 100% happy with her services. We loved the private licensing, the beautiful photographs, and our officiant (who was also a pleasure to work with). I highly recommend Weddings by the Sea.

We've been married nearly two months now and we're still on cloud nine!
My sweetheart, who doesn't go in for fussy, pretentious events -- and myself, who refuses to do anything on the basis of tradition alone -- well, we probably weren't the easiest folks to work with. We mostly knew what we didn't want for our tiny wedding. Dusty worked tirelessly to help us come up with a ceremony that was authentically ours and came off beautifully. His youthful exuberance and unfailingly sunny disposition were delightful.
From our first email, communication with Kim was prompt and effortless. Even before we met in person on our big day it felt like she was an old friend. Kim and Dusty were patient as we got Skype up and running so that our daughters could be virtual participants in our ceremony, which turned out to be unspeakably lovely and moving. We laughed, we cried, we gazed deeply into each other's eyes like the love-struck goofballs that we are. And Kim captured it all for our album. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted, and exceeded our expectations in every way.
Would I recommend Weddings By the Sea? ABSOLUTELY!

She delivered the service, music, the officiant, flowers, photography, cake, setting--all of these services to meet what we were looking for in a very professional and quality way. It's amazing to me that Kim can "do it all" when it comes to arranging all aspects of a wedding and deliver each of these services with quality and care. She is a joy to work with and accompany you in planning your custom wedding. The value is excellent too! Thank you Kim!

If you want a no stress wedding in Santa Barbara, Alma Rose is the best. She was absolutely terrific along with everyone else on her team...her husband, the photographer, the videographer. I couldn't ask for a nicer group of people and the "elegant" package did not disappoint! The flowers and my bouquet were gorgeous and I loved all the bling! We can't wait to see our final pictures! We had a small wedding but it had all the details of a big event and I would highly recommend Alma Rose!

Thank you Sandy! You and Alex were so easy-going all along and I could not have married a nicer couple. You were a stunning bride and Alex a handsome groom. The photos will tell the story. Kim, the photographer already mentioned how beautiful the photos came out. She is in the process of editing them. You'll be hearing from her shortly.

I wish you and Alex so much love and happiness!!!

me and my husband are from the uk and we found alma via the internet. I got in contact with her and from the off she was amazing. As it was only me and my husband attending the wedding I needed lots of help getting into my massive traditional english dress and kind alma offered me her home and the helping hand i needed. The ceremony was perfect in every way, little touchs that were special and unique, her and her husband did a fantastic job with the photos and they're our memories for life. We are hoping to return to california in a couple of years time and meet with alma again as she made our perfect dream day as perfect and wonderful as she could. Alma and her husband are both wonderful people and I wish them all the best for the future.
All our love and best wishes

Alma Rose married us on 02/19/2010 and it was one of the most magical days of my life! She instantly makes you feel relaxed with her easygoing personality and professionalism. She even came out to Los Angeles to marry us and we were so excited! The price is such a deal for all that she does - a beautiful ceremony that everyone will be talking about because her words & presentation are so lovely, the most gorgeous bridal bouquets, and tons of creative & gorgeous pictures. Alma Rose delivered way over our expectation and then some more! The ceremony was so special and all our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the ceremony was. Everything was Wonderful!! If you want your wedding ceremony to be memorable, romantic and beautiful...you really need to hire Alma Rose. You will not regret it!

Thank YOU Candy! The drive to LA was a cinch and once I arrived at the Bungalow Club (fabulous place), your family made me feel so welcomed and at the ease especially your mother as she greeted me as I was a family member. You and Ivan were so much fun to marry and photograph afterwards. I am only as good as the couple that stands before me. I wish you so much joy and happiness in all your days to come!

Alma Rose made our wedding the most memorable, blessed event that we could have ever imagined. Everything went smoothly, the location was awesome, the ceremony itself, the words she used, the expressions she made - you can tell her entire heart goes into this. I cannot say enough about our special day - I am at a loss for words as my expectations were met way beyond what I imagined. Furthermore, the photographs are gorgeous, and they were very timely. Alma is an angel, very sincere, loving, caring, the kind of person you want to have performing this special time in your life. Thank you Alma.

My husband and I were looking for a simple, but classy ceremony for just the two of us. Weddings By the Sea gave us exactly that! The ceremony was perfect and Alma Rose and her photographer worked with us to capture many beautiful photos to share with our out-of-state family. Her price was the best compared to officiants in Orange County, CA. She and her photographer were professional and fun. The Santa Barbara Courthouse was the perfect venue. A very positive experience. Our wedding could not have been any better. :)

Alma did a great job catering to the needs of our wedding. We were able to pick a package that we wanted and substitute and add different things that we wished to incorporate without a hassle. The flower arraingments that she did for our arbor and the toss bouquet were perfect. She also decorated the beach isle with beautiful pedals and natural sea shells. I'm positive that she could easily substitute for anything that you prefer. She was very understanding regarding our marriage situation and how we wanted family members involved. One thing that I found as a little irritating was her lack of annunciating words. but the message she says is absolutely perfect. She did a marvelous job and I would highly reccomend her service to any new Bride and Groom.

We are from out of town and finding a wedding coordinator that was local to the area was difficult, but then we found Kim's website. The website was so easy to navigate, get tons of ideas from and we were able to find a wedding package that was easy to accommodate us as a couple. Her responsiveness to emails and phone calls and her knowledge about weddings was powerful and helpful. She guided us through every little detail and in the end, made our wedding so special and memorable. Everything was beautiful and we couldn't be happier to have had Kim help us in making our wedding day so amazing!!

You can’t beat the price for what you receive, but you really have to keep on top of them and expect little things to go wrong since it is a really laid back approach. Overall, I would recommend them

My partner, Kim Colombini, took over the business and that is why I referred you to her to finalize the details of your wedding. All your paperwork was turned over to her. Otherwise, the ceremony was beautiful, the photos came out stellar and your wedding package was very affordable. Not once did we drop the ball on you. Everything went well as planned. Sorry you were caught up in the transition process.

The photos were fabulous! There was only the bride and groom. Everything went great...Kim Colombini

According to the dictionary, a free spirit is a person with a highly individual or unique attitude, lifestyle, or imagination. A free spirit in the cosmic sense...I am not. I am, however, very friendly and creative and not to be misconstrued as unprofessional. I create ceremonies are unique that include choreography, rituals, blessings that I have personally designed to make your ceremony that much more memorable and unique. I thought you were such a lovely couple and was happy to have played such an important role in your celebration. I wish you all the best and wonderful tomorrows.
p.s. I was not late for the wedding.

While the day of our wedding went very well, it was the weeks leading up to it that I did NOT feel good about the services I was getting. I have never used an online organization for a wedding so I had no idea what to expect. I asked many questions and felt like Kim was being bothered to answer them. There were many email exchanges where my questions were not directly answered. There were phone conversations where I didn't get the feeling that my special day was important. I didn't know whether we should meet in person to go over things or not so I asked. To that Kim said..."I don't know why we need to meet in person as your just doing an elopement package". The officiant Sarah was very sweet but I didn't know what my vows were going to be as she never sent me my final copy. In fact, there were a couple of things I specifically wanted said as part of the ceremony that did not make it in. Kim did the photography as well and actually snapped at my husband when he said he wanted a certain pose. She said she was the professional that had been doing this for years! Overall not a good warm fuzzy experience and I was not made to feel special on what was supposed to be a special day for me and my family.

It is blowing me away that people actually liked this woman. She was HORRIBLE. She showed up to our wedding back in 2008 1 hour early thinking it was for the wrong time, rushed through our ceremony, messed up our unity sand colors without even asking me what color I would like since she was out of the color I had chosen, had a horrible PA system, skipped over 2 segments that were to be very vital to us in our ceremony. All because she had overlapped booking for her next wedding after messing up our time. She had said that we needed to get the wedding underway because she has to get to another wedding. SHE SAID THIS TO ME, the groom. You have got to be kidding me. She also at one point lost our certificate and never gave us any of the legal papers that we needed .Because of her we are now going to have a wedding renewal for our 5 year anniversary. I would never recommend her to ANYONE. What a waste of money.

She showed up to our wedding back in 2008 1 hour early thinking it was for the wrong time, rushed through our ceremony, messed up our unity sand colors without even asking me what color I would like since she was out of the color I had chosen, had a horrible PA system, skipped over 2 segments that were to be very vital to us in our ceremony. All because she had overlapped booking for her next wedding after messing up our time. She had said that we needed to get the wedding underway because she has to get to another wedding. SHE SAID THIS TO ME, the groom. You have got to be kidding me. She also at one point lost our certificate and never gave us any of the legal papers that we needed .Because of her we are now going to have a wedding renewal for our 5 year anniversary. I would never recommend her to ANYONE. What a waste of money. Read less
