Catherine is the Best!
We were extremely delighted to work with Catherine Forester and Weddings by the Sea. Catherine made our wedding day at the Four Seasons Biltmore a warm, beautiful, and memorable experience for us, and ... Read more and for our family and friends. Catherine and her team created an absolutely stunning and elegant Chuppah in the Mariposa Gardens for our Ceremony. We were all amazed at the exquisite florals Catherine and her team created which adorned the Chuppah as well as the reception tables, and the gorgeous bridal bouquet. Catherine attended to each and every detail for us. She provided us with top notch vendors, and collaborated with the hotel event staff which made everything more than perfect all around. Her warm and caring service brought us much comfort and ease well before, and following, our special day. After our wedding day, Catherine went above and beyond to assure that our marriage certificate was expedited through Santa Barbara County. We highly recommend Catherine and Weddings by the Sea to anyone who is looking to have all the best in a Santa Barbara wedding.

After going back and forth a million times on the timing and sizing of our wedding with our families, my now husband and I decided to go with what we had envisioned for our wedding. With such a short ... Read more turnaround (4 months from the decision date), we immediately started looking for help and I was so lucky to have found Catherine and her amazing expertise. Catherine was extremely responsive and helpful from initial contact to the day of our wedding. We live in Huntington Beach so planning a Santa Barbara wedding ourselves would’ve taken much more time and effort than we had for our jam packed schedules. Catherine provided us with a suite of services and made our day so beautiful. She took care of seating, decor, florals, the officiant, photographer, and a was with us with any other details or questions we needed to address. The day of our wedding the ceremony went off without a hitch, and received so much praise from our families. She truly pulled off our vision of an intimate wedding ceremony. If I could do it all over again, without hesitation, Catherine would still be a part of it. Our reception and dinner was even a recommendation from her! She’s such a great partner to have if you’re needing someone to support coordinations for your wedding ceremony.

Can’t say enough good things. We planned a wedding less than two months out and everything went very smoothly. Catherine was easy to communicate with and had great suggestions for locations. We had ... Read more our ceremony at Manning Park and it was perfect. Would recommend Weddings By The Sea to anyone looking to plan a ceremony in the Santa Barbara area. Thank you for helping us with our big day!
