Perfect Wedding Day
Dearest Sarah, I almost do not know where to begin with what a PERFECT wedding event you provided for Lindsay and Stephen! From our initial planning session at Starbucks to the ending moments leaving Stella Mares, we just had the most wonderful experience working with you and the Montecito Weddings crew. So many of our family and friends said it was the best wedding they have ever attended – and my husband and I totally agree. The ceremony was sweet, personal, meaningful and intimate – you chose the perfect words about love and marriage and the starfish story with the bride and groom sending their starfishes back into the ocean was so fun and unique. Again, perfection. Thank you also for arranging to have Tony Ybarra play during the event and for having Henry Umana take the photographs. Henry’s preview postings are amazing and I know he captured the joy and fun everyone was feeling.
The Butterfly Beach setting was amazing and welcoming – it was so heartwarming to see everyone arrive and just immediately relax and enjoy the wedding. Some adorable little girls in swimsuits even ran up the beach to congratulate Lindsay just before the ceremony began – so cute. Nicole, Sebastian and Joel were so nice to work with at the wedding site and the end result was charming. Our little cousin even helped Nicole toss the rose petals in the aisle – the whole atmosphere was one of family, close friends and love.
You were so right about Stella Mares – the greenhouse was magical and we absolutely just had to show up to our own little French bistro with fresh flowers on the tables, candlelight and the most wonderful food and drinks. All our guests raved about how good their dinners were and then came the cake – best ever wedding cake!!! Sarah, your decorating was beautiful with so many white roses and the starfish, too. It was like eating a fluffy strawberry shortcake cloud – just the right amount of sweetness. Lily’s cookie favors were so cute and yummy – and again the personal touch of having a homemade gift to send home with each guest helped make the wedding even more special. You definitely must add Lily’s cookies to your wedding service selections – Lindsay called me late last night to say, “Oh, my goodness, the cookies are delicious!” I just knew we were in the right hands when we met with you to be our wedding planner. Our experience with Montecito Weddings was fantastic and stress-free from start to finish.
Thank you for a perfect wedding day,
Lynn and Allen Roberts
P.S. The crew really did work their butts off setting up the perfect wedding site!
