Love Notes from Our Couples
I love reading all the beautiful letters that I've received from client couples that expressed their gratitude for my services rendered. You have all made a positive imprint on my heart. Blessings to you all! With love, Alma Rose
(espíritu) soul, spirit, heart. That is the definition for the word "alma". Alma Rose is that and much, much more. My husband and I dated for nearly eight years. We decided to get married years ago but could never get it together to have the type of wedding that would accommodated all our friends and family.
In December, Mark decided we would get married. Tie the knot. Express the commitment we share for each other. We would do a no stress wedding. That is when we discovered, no matter how simple you want it to be, there is no such thing.
That is when we called Alma Rose. Alma is so warm and wonderful yet no nonsense. Her years of experience is priceless. She knew exactly what we needed before we did! And she listens, which is nearly impossible to find these days. Alma Rose let us know what we needed to do and she took care of everything else. I kept thinking we left something out it was so simple. All we had to do was show up with smiles on our faces. Alma Rose made our special day exactly that. Special. We were able to focus on making that commitment to each other why we wanted to get married. We were able to bask in our love. Isn’t that what it is all about?"
Thank you truly Alma,
Rita and Mark Christian
(Rita and Christian, your love note made me cry. Thank you for such a heartfelt message. Wishing you a lifetime of happy tomorrows. xo)
This was the happiest day of my life! Alma Rose is such wonderful person with an amazing aura and a good soul and we could feel this during the ceremony! Even though she just met us this day, she already could sense our spirit and her ceremony and the words that she chose were not standard but touching and personal. This is what I appreciated most! It was extremely easy to make arrangements with her. She always and immediately replied mails, phone calls and SMS and is very reliable. And she knows the best wedding locations!!! This truly was our happiest day thanks to Alma Rose!

Alma was the best! She really cared about giving my bride and I the best possible wedding. The setup was beautiful, the photographers took their time and were very professional, the harpist played beautiful music, and Alma gave a really heartfelt Christian ceremony which is exactly what we wanted! We are so grateful that she was able to help us and would definitely recommend Alma Rose again!
Mrs. Lauren Westbay
A heartfelt thanks to Alma Rose. Thanks to her, our wedding ceremony was everything we could have wanted. Tasteful, romantic, sincere and professional. As a doting husband, I cannot express how happy Alma Rose made me to be able to give a perfect wedding day to my beautiful bride.

We had an intimate wedding on the beach in Santa Barbara which Alma Rose organized to a T.
Alma was responsive, professional and kept up with our ever changing wedding plans without breaking a sweat and not charging us an arm and a leg.
Kim the photographer was equally up to the task and our wedding was as seamless and intimate as we had desired.

"Alma Rose made my wedding day perfect. She has a great communication up to the wedding and on the wedding day--she is professional, courteous and just all around amazing. My husband and I were unsure about eloping, thinking maybe we were making the wrong choice, but Alma Rose made our day so perfect that we know we made the right choice. If you are thinking are thinking about eloping in California, you will not regret your decision to recommend !! Our pics were perfect, our day was perfect, and our memories are perfect. THANK YOU ALMA ROSE!"

Alma Rose, and her services were tailor-made for our wedding. We wanted small, low key, and private, beautiful, meaningful, and spiritual. She exceeded our expectations. She was also very affordable and super accomodating. She really went the extra mile and it's so obvious that she believes in love and marriage and is full committed to her clients. I don't think you can possibly go wrong with Alma Rose - no matter what size the wedding or the venue. She was A++
Mr. and Mrs. Orr
I was shocked at how beautiful everything turned out better than I could imagine. Alma made the day of the wedding stress free. The ceremony was very intimate and she made everyone feel included. Alma was very easy to work with and open to any ideas you might have. Thank you for making our special day so wonderful!
Mr. and Mrs. Anonymous
We were so very pleased with Alma Rose’s wedding service. She worked hand and hand with my husband and me in choosing and editing our ceremony. She kept contact throughout our planning stages and gave us great recommendations. Day of – she came early with her humor and focus (and the arbor and lovebirds) and helped us keep our humor and focus! Inspiring and professional – I highly recommend Ms. Middleton.

"If you want a no stress wedding in Santa Barbara, Alma Rose is the best. She was absolutely terrific along with everyone else on her team...her husband, the photographer, the videographer. I couldn't ask for a nicer group of people and the "elegant" package did not disappoint! The flowers and my bouquet were gorgeous and I loved all the bling! We can't wait to see our final pictures! We had a small wedding but it had all the details of a big event and I would highly recommend Alma Rose!"
"Me and my husband are from the UK and we found Alma Rose via the internet. I got in contact with her and from the off she was amazing. As it was only me and my husband attending the wedding I needed lots of help getting into my massive traditional English dress and kind Alma Rose offered me her home and the helping hand I needed. The ceremony was perfect in every way, little touches that were special and unique, her and her husband did a fantastic job with the photos and they're our memories for life. We are hoping to return to California in a couple of years time and meet with Alma Rose.
Again as she made our perfect dream day as perfect and wonderful as she could. Alma and her husband are both wonderful people and I wish them all the best for the future. All our love and best wishes."

"Alma Rose married us and it was one of the most magical days of my life! She instantly makes you feel relaxed with her easygoing personality and professionalism. She even came out to Los Angeles to marry us and we were so excited! The price is such a deal for all that she does - a beautiful ceremony that everyone will be talking about because her words and presentation are so lovely, the most gorgeous bridal bouquets, and tons of creative gorgeous pictures. Alma Rose delivered way over our expectation and then some more! The ceremony was so special and all our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the ceremony was. Everything was Wonderful!!

"Alma Rose made our wedding the most memorable, blessed even that we could have ever imagined. Everything went smoothly, the location was awesome, the ceremony itself, the words she used, the expressions she made - you can tell her entire heart goes into this. I cannot say enough about our special day - I am at a loss for words as my expectations were met way beyond what I imagined. Furthermore, the photographs are gorgeous, and they were very timely. Alma Rose is an angel, very sincere, loving, caring, the kind of person you want to have performing this special time in your life. Thank you Alma Rose."
"My husband and I were looking for a simple, but classy ceremony for just the two of us. Alma Rose gave us exactly that! The ceremony was perfect and Alma Rose and her photographer worked with us to capture many beautiful photos to share with our out-of-state family. Her price was the best compared to officiants in Orange County, CA. She and her photographer were professional and fun. The Santa Barbara Courthouse was the perfect venue. A very positive experience. Our wedding could not have been any better. :)"

"Alma Rose did a great job catering to the needs of our wedding. We were able to pick a package that we wanted and substitute and add different things that we wished to incorporate without a hassle. The flower arrangements that she did for our arbor and the toss bouquet were perfect. She also decorated the beach isle with beautiful pedals and natural sea shells. I'm positive that she could easily substitute for anything that you prefer. She was very understanding regarding our marriage situation and how we wanted family members involved. But the message she says is absolutely perfect. She did a marvelous job and I would highly recommend her service to any new Bride and Groom."
Cassandra and Jonathan

All the guests commented on how beautiful her ceremony was and how nice she was to all of our guests."
