Montecito Weddings... Romantic, Elegant, Perfect!

Specializing in Santa Barbara Weddings, Venues, Ceremonies, and Receptions we offer a variety of packages for any wedding budget. With beautiful beaches & ocean cliff surroundings, the majestic S.B. Courthouse, the lovely local gardens, and majestic estate settings we are sure you will find the perfect locale to create the ideal ambiance for your wedding day! Hello and congratulations to you on your engagement! The days between now and "I do" are most exhilarating, filled with eagerness and anticipation of the future and all that it holds, illuminated by the thrill of knowing that true love is indeed more precious than gold! That said, what better place to have your wedding ceremony than California's very own "Gold Coast", Santa Barbara! With average temperatures ranging between 68-75 degrees, Santa Barbara county is the ideal choice for weddings year round.

Santa Barbara’s close proximity to Santa Ynez and Wine Country is appealing to many visitors, as well as the magnificence of our world famous beaches and architectural wonders which create spectacular backdrops for your dream destination wedding.

We are a Christian based organization, but are delighted and honored to offer romantic, heartfelt ceremonies to suit couples of all faiths, denominations, beliefs, and backgrounds. Our hearts are open to all, because regardless as to the path you walk in life, what all couples share in common is love! This love is celebrated in everything we do to create your perfect wedding day!

To date, The Reverend Sarah Farmer has planned and performed over 3,000 weddings! We delight in making the planning process easy and stress free for brides and grooms from around the world, or right here in our own sunny back yard. Our all inclusive wedding packages make event planning a breeze with multiple options to suit every budget and Ala Carte items to customize your ceremony or reception to your individual needs!

From rentals to rose petals, seashells to chandeliers; photos to flowers; no detail is overlooked, leaving you to peacefully enjoy your wedding day pampered, polished, and care free! Scroll through our Ceremony and combo Ceremony/Reception packages today… your dream wedding awaits!

While a picture indeed says a thousand words, words paint a picture of who you are both as individuals and as a couple. Romantic, poetic, and heartfelt custom ceremonies are our specialty, written specifically for you to represent your love, lives, and laughter together. As no two couples are alike, no two love stories the same, no grains of sand on the beach exactly the same color…neither should be your wedding ceremony! Many wedding officiants will charge upward of $500 for writing a ceremony exclusively for you, but from our shared love of the written word, we happily include this service in all of our wedding packages… free of charge!

In addition to our fully inclusive wedding packages and custom written ceremonies, we have also personally developed a myriad of symbolic and ceremonial exchanges and blessings. When added to the body of your ceremony, these heartwarming dedications transform mere words into cherished memories! Together lets paint a picture of your love with words, ones that you and your loved ones will remember for a lifetime!

All you need is love…

…and we will take care of the rest! Montecito Weddings provides a variety of wedding packages for every budget, from the very basics (the “Santa Barbara Special”) to all inclusive (“Lover’s Paradise”). All of our packages can be customized from our Ala Carte menu, allowing you to pick and choose the right options for you.

We not only provide the very best in ceremony packages but also provide receptions as well! Choose from our Ceremony/Reception combos or simply add a reception on to the package of your choice and… voila! Sea, sand, and sky is the limits!!!

Imagine yourselves: Standing surf side, toes in the sand, surrounded by friends and family, fragrant florals, and tropical palms beneath a breathtaking azure blue sky. Listen to the sounds of a classical guitarist serenely wafting in concert with the surf, the sun dancing lightly across the waves…a picture perfect moment in time created just for you!

Or perhaps your ideal wedding location is upon a grassy knoll overlooking a crystalline lily pond filled with jewel toned koi, or high atop a cliff overlooking the Channel Islands and sparkling Pacific Ocean.

At Montecito Weddings, we make weddings “a day at the beach”, taking the stress out of planning your destination dream wedding. For detailed information, please take a moment to look through our list of packages and locations as well as florals, photography, ala carte, and our FAQ page.
