Shannon and Cory's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be in Santa Barbara...so much so that we hope to travel back to Santa Barbara for future anniversaries! Everything went perfectly even though I planned everything from San Diego...let me know if you need recommendations, I did a LOT of research before deciding on my vendors and it paid off, they all exceeded my expectations and my guests all said they had a wonderful time and were surprised at how well everything flowed. Even though it rained all morning, Santa Barbara delivered us perfect weather and a deserted courthouse for the happiest day of our lives!

Molly was amazing, she adorned my champagne flutes with gorgeous vintage jewelry and made us a matching serving set and monogram cake topper. Very open communication and very customized, so happy with the end results!

Santa Barbara Trolley

Limos/Shuttles

Everyone loved this idea, the trolley took us from our hotel to the ceremony and then from the ceremony to the reception. Great photo opportunities and a fun way for everyone to be together and not worry about driving!

Coordinators/Planners

Kelly is amazing! Hired her over the phone/email and couldn't have been happier with how smoothly everything went and this was in large part due to her! I wasn't going to hire a day of coordinator but I am SO glad I did, she's the best!

Florists

My flowers were one of my favorite things about my wedding, April did a fabulous job of hearing what I wanted and delivering it without me needing to micromanage the process. She's awesome!

He was very warm and funny, did a great job of helping us tie the knot and making us both cry and laugh. Couldn't have asked for a more personable guy to declare us husband and wife!

The Santa Barbara Courthouse
Santa Barbara, CA
Ceremony Sites

Our ceremony was on a stormy day so the courthouse was deserted and the rain cleared about 2 hours before our wedding, the pictures could not be more gorgeous of the clock tower views with blue skies and puffy white clouds. Everyone I show these pictures too can't believe it's free to get married here. The only downside is it is a public place and there were some people watching our wedding, but it wasn't that big of a deal to us...perfect spot for a small wedding (clock tower only holds 25 people, we had 16).

Epiphany Restaurant
Santa Barbara, CA
Reception Sites

Epiphany was a great restaurant and they ended up meeting my expectations, however, the closer to the wedding it got, the harder it was for me to get in touch with the owner regarding our menu. This was frustrating and even my wedding coordinator thought it unprofessional and troubling. Everything turned out perfect anyway, but it added to me stress a bit. Very well priced reception at a very quaint small restaurant.
