Perfect Wedding Venue
The owners of this venue are extremely accommodating and VERY easy to work with. I cannot emphasize enough how stress-free Sandra and Raymond made the entire process. They received and coordinated with the florist, DJ, and catering vendors the day of the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly. We have never met more caring business owners! The venue package also included countless amenities, perks, and decorations! This place is absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful view and plenty of parking. This place is huge and the property is gorgeous! The bridal suite and groom's suites are fabulous. We had the best time of our lives here! Highly recommend checking this place out for your weddingSent on 02/21/2021

Ama La Vita is absolutely stunning. It has a rustic feel that makes any East Texan feel right at home, but they’ve added an industrial twist! There’s SO much room to achieve the perfect vision for a wedding! Sandra and Raymond went above and beyond to make my day PERFECT!
