Armando was my trusted Genie! He made our 3-day weekend wedding in Montecito, CA so perfect! He worked with me for almost a year, and he was really patient and dedicated about everything. He respects and executes what we truly feel. He helped us with everything and anything under the sun. All our family and friends were very impressed with all of his work and speak very highly of him. He went over and beyond to offer his services me, my husband, and my family. Exceptional! Thanks so much, Armando! We've truly found a friend in you.

Shauna & Armando, the words "thank you" are inadequate to express our gratitude for all you both have done to make our wedding dream come to life! We appreciate the hours and hours you put into making this day so special. It has been an honor to work with you both. You two are an amazing team! We were beyond impressed with your work - it is truly amazing. The credit for this day goes to you both.

Armando was magic! We recently got married at Bacara Resort and Armando (along with Shauna) were an integral part of our dream wedding! Armando was a pleasure to work with along the whole process and offered so much advice that was truly KEY in executing our vision. Armando worked well with us and was a true professional. He is very well known in Santa Barbara and it was always reassuring to hear that he was great to work with! His recommendations and sage advice kept us in line and on target with what we wanted. We were very particular about A LOT of aspects of the wedding and he really was amazing at negotiating and compromising with our goals in mind. Shauna and Armando really were very organized and on-point come wedding day! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Armando and his team had a hand in every single part of our wedding. He helped us to pull together a cohesive look while staying on budget and leading us to the best vendors. He even helped me with my dress fittings. The week of my wedding I was relaxed knowing that everything was taken care of and that Armando had it covered. I would highly recommend Alegria by Design!

The moment we first spoke with Armando, I knew I needed his services and knew he was the one that was going to pull it off exactly how we wanted. He read me perfectly! The event was classy and perfect. Armando listened and worked with our vendors when we needed him to. He was our "strong", so I could just enjoy the planning with him rather than be the bossy one. He and Shauna both came to the rehearsal and were so fun to be with; my whole family loved working with them. On the day of the wedding, Armando and Shauna were also both amazing. They kept everything under control and we just showed up! They told us when and where we had to be and everything just flowed seamlessly. I can honestly say that I don't think I could have pulled this off with Armando. Our guests all commented on how smooth everything went, no glitches at all. I highly recommend Armando and his team to anyone who is just starting to plan a wedding. He just made it so easy!

There are not enough great things I can say about Shauna Timmons, our wedding coordinator. Shauna was my dream come true for our wedding! From the first moment I spoke to her I knew she could be trusted and was very good at what she does. We hired her for a month of coordinator and I have no clue what we would have done with out her. She handled everything so seamlessly. Contracts, coordination, timelines, every little detail Shauna was proactive and took care of. She was so professional and enjoyable to work with. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

Shauna was an absolutely fabulous choice as a wedding planner. As a highly skilled and dedicated professional, I see Shauna moving quickly into the front ranks here in Santa Barbara as a leader in her industry. She is on time with everything, and lets nothing interfere with getting the job done. Seriously, she was recommended to us by a meticulous professional, and I recommend her to anyone who wants a synchronized and stress free wedding day full of style and beauty. Thank you Shauna for giving us your best and making our day extraordinary. You are absolutely wonderful!

Armando is a very talented individual. He has so many fabulous ideas to make your day special and unique. I knew from the day we first met him that I could trust Armando with everything related to my wedding day and that he would be very professional and helpful. Our experience with him was that he was prepared for everything and always had a solution for any hiccup. My husband and I are very happy with Armando and could not have asked for anything more on our wedding day! I must say that I am proud to be an Alegria bride!

My husband and I had a non-flexible date planned for our wedding - all of our important days fall on the 19th of the month. With that said, the last 19th of the year to fall on a Saturday gave us 3 months to plan a wedding. Enthusiasts of love we are. Planners of large events we are not. I met with Shauna soon after getting engaged with a few details in place but needed much guidance in organizing the day of - lists, vendors, scheduling etc. The day of your wedding you need someone with experience and a very particular presence to help keep everyone calm. Shauna did this for us, having her at our wedding helped make the day beautiful and stress free (she even sent her husband to get my bouquet that had been left in the fridge at my house!). Shauna's experience was evident in all aspects of her support.

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Shauna Timmons as our day-of-coordinator. Our wedding was like a dream, with zero 'surprises' or regrets, and we owe this in large part to Shauna. At first, planning our wedding from 3,000 miles away seemed like a daunting task, but Shauna was able to make the process not only manageable but actually enjoyable for us. She was incredibly friendly, professional, helpful, had wonderful insight and recommendations for other local vendors as well. We are both so thankful to have had her involved in our wedding day and all the work and effort that went into it.
