Our wedding day was magical and memorable, and Patrice played a role in making this so. Patrice is a delightful lady who takes the time to get to know the bride and groom well so she can truly personalize the ceremony with heartfelt words and readings for the couple. I consulted several officiants before selecting Patrice for our wedding, and we're so pleased we went with her. As it turns out, in speaking to a work colleague, I learned that she too had Patrice as her officiant a few years ago, which was further reassurance that we selected the right person to be part of our special day. - Vicki L.
I could not have been more relieved and thankful to have Patrice marry us. She is the ultimate professional, and relieved our anxiety entirely upon our first meeting. She makes figuring out the ceremony and help with deciding on vows a simple process - which I can only imagine would be a supreme headache if we were working with anyone else. So many guests said it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever sat through. We laughed, we cried and it was all so perfect and so personal - just for us. The only thing I regret is not writing this review sooner. I wish I could give her ten stars. Thank you so much Trice!! - Pretty P.
Being a wedding photography, I have had the pleasure of working many, many times over the years with Patrice. She is a consummate professional with beautiful words to match. I am always truly excited to see that she is the officiant for the wedding I'm shooting because I know it will be a heartfelt and deeply touching ceremony. I recommend her often! - Cherry T.
We accidentally happened to come across SB classic weddings while looking at the Santa Barbara courthouse as a wedding venue and got in touch with Patrice. This was one of the best choices we made as Patrice was so accommodating, understanding and warm giving us multiple options and poems for our ceremony and conducted the ceremony with such grace and warmth that everyone present at the ceremony was touched with her approach towards conducting the ceremony. She also walked us through all the official formalities involved in processing our marriage application. All this at an extremely reasonable price. We would recommend her to everyone who wants to get married in Santa Barbara. - Anita N.
Patrice was absolutely wonderful. From day one, she kept constant communication with my wife and I. She also sent us reminders, but also relieved our stress when we realized that we were short on time. During the ceremony, there was a lot of commotion and last minute details that Patrice went over with us. Although time was running short, she had the patience and guided us through everything. As a result, our wedding was perfect and just the way we wanted. - Mike H.
Patrice was amazing. I wasn't sure what to expect from an officiant but what ever expectations I had, Patricesurpassed them! I really appreciated Patrice's genuineness, thoughtfulness and experience because they all contributed in making our ceremony beautiful and personal. - Omar A.
We found Patrice on the knot. My husband and I were having a wedding outside of our county and went looking into Santa Barbara to get married in their beautiful courthouse. Patrice provided officiant services for that area, and she was exactly what we were looking for! We were having a small wedding of 16 people, something very intimate. We wanted someone that would be able to provide the warmth and capture the intimacy that my husband and I were looking for. Patrice was so sweet from the very beginning of our phone meetings! We were very comfortable with her! We didn't actually get to meet her in person till the day of, but she was just as pleasant in person as she was over the phone. She was also very awesome in handling our crying fur-baby, Marley. It didn't seem to phase her at all! She stayed focus to our ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone! - Tiff I.
My wife and LOVE Patrice! She is so wonderful and has an amazing spirit. She always chooses words wisely and really gets a great feel for each couple. We are wedding photographers and have seen many officiants. Patrice is by far our favorite in the industry. You can't go wrong with hiring her for your special union. - Ryan C.
Planning your wedding is difficult. Enjoying your wedding is even more so. But Patrice was a bright spot in our process and ceremony. She was both timely and pleasant. She commands respect in the most subtle was possible, she entertains and engages a crowd, and she looks good doing it.
My wife and I are particular about who we surround ourselves with. We wanted a wedding officiant that could just as easily be a guest at our wedding. Patrice was just that.
- delivered more than we could have asked for
- I am running out of good adjectives for her..
If you're planning an SB wedding and you want the best officiant, stop shopping and call Patrice. - Maxwell H.
