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.
