  • Catherine, our wedding planner, was so amazing! She stayed right on top of everything and always had a plan B at the ready, which was very useful when we had rain on our big day without warning. Yet, our ceremony went super smoothly thanks to her! We highly recommend!

    It was a beautiful wedding at Alice Keck Gardens! I'm so glad the rain held off during the ceremony :) The photos are gorgeous.

  • My boyfriend and I wanted to elope in Santa Barbara. I needed to figure out how to do that. I had a specific date in mind and a time. But, since I do not live in Santa Barbara I needed help. Catherine could not have been more professional, more kind, more caring and more knowledgeable. She has been doing this for a long time and her vast experience and honest advice helped me to make the right decisions. Catherine was always available to answer my questions and she suggested options that I did not think of. In short, Catherine was absolutely the reason that our wedding day was a huge success. I highly recommend this Catherine and her super professional team to make your wedding day memorable and happy. My photo's are so much better than I could have imagined. This is one satisfied customer.

  • Our wedding went perfect! Weddings by the Sea did a great job, they were very accommodating and made sure that everything we wanted to do during the ceremony was done how we wanted. We have no complaints and would recommend this company to anyone thinking about having a beach wedding in Santa Barbara where we had ours.

  • Deciding to book with Catherine was the best choice we could've made! From the first call with her, she was willing to listen to our situation and helped come up with a clear plan on what we could do given the current public health guidelines. We were able to meet her and see the location ahead of time. She was always quick to respond by email or text. She helped make the day of go as smoothly as it could've gone. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you Catherine and team!!

  • Catherine provided excellent services that kept both myself and my fiancé able to enjoy our day. Because of COVID-19 we canceled our larger reception and eloped. Our day was so perfect and intimate, Catherine’s suggestions and vendor recommendations all worked so well and it showed in our photos and videos. Catherine set up our venue with touches from our decorations but made it very organic. For our toast we did scotch and donuts, she found the most delicious bakery in Santa Bárbara that we can’t stop think about. We had the most beautiful and memorable ceremony. We highly recommend her services.

  • The event was private, held on the beach. We showed up and all the details were handled for us. It was perfect! We were able to just relax and enjoy the moments together as we became husband and wife. I would definitely recommend this to any couple looking for a Santa Barbara wedding!

  • Getting married during a pandemic is a rollercoaster. After needing the cancel the big wedding I originally had planned, I was looking for a company that could help me with an elopement. I was completely devastated and defeated. Then, I came across the Weddings by the Sea website and contacted Catherine for more information. She immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease as she took on the responsibility of planning my elopement. She was attentive, sweet, had great recommendations for our small reception dinner, listen to my wants/needs, and overall made my elopement a perfect day I always dreamed of. I’ve already recommend her to a few friends and raved at how easy she made it for us. And the package we chose was totally affordable! Thank you so much Catherine for making our wedding elopement a memory we will cherish forever!

  • Catherine was amazing. We originally were planning a wedding of 70 people. Covid changed our plans rapidly. Our wedding date was August 23rd we didn’t decide until June that we were going through with our day. Catherine was very solution based and presented many options when we could no longer keep our original venue. Catherine made sure our ceremony was within Covid compliance. Catherine was amazing with coordinating everyone we had a beautiful ceremony on the beach with food on the beach Catherine allowed us to use the chairs to eat on the beach. I loved that Weddings By the Sea was a one stop shop. My bouquet was stunning and was designed by Catherine. Our wedding photos are amazing Catherine also provides the photographer!!!

    It makes me so happy that despite all the obstacles, the biggest being a major pandemic, we were still able to make your wedding happen on the original date. It was a beautiful ceremony! Wishing you and your family all the best xoxo Catherine
