“Wine With a Wedding Planner” offers an innovative, community-based approach to wedding planning in complete relaxation. It combines the expertise of Certified Wedding Professional and CEO/Founder of Santa Barbara Wine Country Weddings & Events Kerry Lee Dickey and the beautiful wedding locations Santa Barbara and its wine country have to offer with a fresh approach to a “meet and greet” complimentary communal consultation.
Similar to “Coffee with a Cop”, Ms. Dickey will be meeting with potential clients at various venues in the area during their business hours in a public area. She invites anyone thinking of having a wedding in this area – or simply anyone planning a wedding with need for planning, etiquette , or venue recommendations – to stop by, say hello and engage with her at no charge. At all locations, Wine With a Wedding Planner visitors are encouraged to purchase a no-host tasting (at wineries) or beverage of choice and come join her outside for an engaging complimentary communal wedding planning session.
Ms. Dickey will be Tweeting her exact locations at each venue the day of her appearance as well as any change of plans/location due to inclement weather on Twitter as well as Facebook, so make sure you check back regularly there and here on this post for any updates prior to arrival. All social media posts will have the hashtag #WineWithAWeddingPlanner .

Dr. Ms. Dickey,
Please consider this my RSVP for two guests at your January 30th, 2016, Santa Barbara Four Seasons Biltmore, “Wine with the Wedding Planner” event. . Thank you.
Dear Ms. Inman;
Delighted to hear we will see you. I look forward to meeting you! No RSVP is necessary, however, as it is open to the community and is on a first-come, first -served basis. I will already be meeting with a client who has an appointment, but all prospective clients are invited to drop by during the time window for a complimentary consultation. It may be with a few other people in a group setting or it may be alone, it just depends on who comes by. Bring all your questions about wedding planning or hosting a wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore. We welcome you and look forward to meeting you. So glad you are coming! Warmly, Kerry Lee
