    If I could give 8 stars, I would have

    Patrice is the most special human being. We were so fortunate and blessed to have her officiate our wedding. It seemed that she was able to perceive exactly what is unique and meaningful in our relationship and our history together, and she wrote a ceremony that could not have been more perfect for us. I cried when I first read it. The ceremony itself was pure light-hearted joy for me, in part because of Patrice's amazing presence and love that she infused into it. I could not ask for a better way to start my marriage journey.

    Claire and David's wedding was so wonderful I had to write a poem about it. They married at Firestone Winery in the Santa Ynez wine country, under the oak trees, surrounded by all the people who love them. David's father read a hilarious poem; Claire's grandmother sang a song that gave everyone the chills. This wedding couldn't have been more personal, especially since they read the tenderest things to one another...including, "I love that you are the most beautiful person I have ever met, inside and out." That says it all...

    Amazing Person/ Outstanding Officiant

    Patrice made our wedding absolutely amazing. From the first consultation, my future bride and I were put completely at ease by her knowledge, patience, and ability to pull together the story that would be told on our special day. When it came time for the wedding Patrice delivered surpassing all expectations. She eliminated any anxious feelings my wife and I were having allowing us to actually experience and enjoy the moment. Planning and executing a wedding can be hard, but working with Patrice is not. She is the real deal.

    Chris & Melissa were a joy to create a ceremony for — they laugh at everything! Their wedding at the Santa Barbara Polo Fields cottage garden was enchanting, including the horses who stood behind the white fence quietly listening during the entire ceremony. It was ethereal! The Polo Fields sits between the mountains and the sea — a most gorgeous place for a couple who have achieved such harmony and humor between them to come together in marriage. A magical beginning for a magical couple!

    Patrice is one of my favorite people to work with on weddings here in Santa Barbara. The ceremony is the most difficult part of the wedding -- to get it right, for the bride and groom, as well as their family and friends, is a gift. On such an important day you want to have a team who are not only professional but also who truly feel joy and gratitude at being part of your day. Patrice is that and more.

    As a musician I perform often at weddings where I don't know the couple that well. I'm always very excited for them but it wasn't until I performed at a wedding where Patrice from Santa Barbara Classic Weddings officiated that I felt really connected to the Bride and Groom. Patrice has a way of telling the couples story and a grace about her that is truly elegant and sincere. It felt like all the words Patrice spoke were tailored just for the couple as they and their families had everything in the ceremony from touching moments full of gratitude and joy to laugh out loud moments with inside jokes and stories. Patrice facilitated a heartfelt and meaningful ceremony from start to finish I hope to work with her on my own wedding one day!
