    Love team ama!

    We LOVED working with Chanda, Alejandra, and Syrhonda! The entire AMA team is kind, professional and create beautiful weddings. We heard from many of our guests that they were impressed with how smoothly the wedding day went. Throughout our planning process, we were able to see how respected team AMA is in the wedding industry. We received a list of preferred vendors from team AMA. Everyone we interacted with, from the DJ to potential caterers, all had such great things to say about team AMA. It made us feel really happy about our decision to work with them.

It was great working with Chanda at the Wedding Sistahs Event last night! She is a wonderful event planner and so creative and responsive. Her design for the dessert table and the desserts made for an impressive display. The event was very organized and so much fun! I would definitely recommend A Monique Affair to my friends!
