    Patrice is great.

    We are so grateful for Patrice's thoughtful words and support at our wedding ceremony. Her guidance and calmness made our wedding exactly what we were hoping for. Over several preliminary phone calls, Patrice guided us through the logistical details of the license process (made additionally complicated due to the pandemic) and collaborated with us on the details of a thoughtful ceremony. Patrice crafted a personal, meaningful ceremony for us which made our wedding day incredibly special. We are so glad we found her!

    Being married during a pandemic can be a daunting experience, but somehow this couple seemed to sail through the process with the same careful, deliberate way they approach most things in life. Getting to know them, although it was long-distance, was a true pleasure...not only because of the planning involved, but because they are really, truly in love with each other's spirits. I am so blessed to have been able to contribute to the beginning of what I see will be an extraordinary marriage!

    Warm and personalized service

    Patrice officiated our small wedding at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and made the ceremony so special. She is very warm and caring and delivered our selected readings and poems in such a meaningful way. From our initial phone conversation, she focused on personalizing our ceremony and making it the most special moment for us. She was very responsive throughout our communication, has an easy booking process, and offered a lot of resources to us to customize our ceremony. Her expertise and experience made our day stress-free and our few guests all raved about her. I highly recommend her services!

    Since this pandemic began, our policy at Santa Barbara Classic Weddings has been to do everything we possibly can to bring happiness and joy to a marriage ceremony. So a review like this makes me SOOO happy. Kara & Dimitry were made for each other...there's no way around it. It's as though they've known the heart of each other since the beginning of time, and I can't be more honored that I got to share their special day!

    Amazing! She captured everything we were looking for!

    Patrice did such an amazing job! She did an incredible job communicating and helping us out with any questions we had throughout the whole process. Not only did help us have the most laid back, stress free wedding we were wishing for but her personality is what really sold us. You can really tell that she’s passionate about what she does! She did an amazing job capturing our love story. All of the guests loved her beautiful speech and nice touches that she added to the wedding. All around she was amazing and I would definitely recommend her to anyone! You will not regret it!

    What can I say about a couple like this?! Even though they asked for a simple ceremony, they chose very deep and sensitive poems and the tenderest of personal vows. They clearly see each other in the light of love...there's nothing "simple" in what they share! A marriage like this is a gift to our world!

    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.

  • Natalie Gelman Wedding Musicians

    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!
