My daughters wedding was the first event ever held at Ama La Vita! We booked it coming in from Canada the week before 😬 which is a mother’s worst nightmare.Sent on 12/12/2020
Raymond and Sandra were extremely accommodating and worked tirelessly to make sure it was everything my daughter wanted!!! Gorgeous venue, super affordable, and they do anything and everything to make sure it’s perfect!!!!
Since that event in 2017 we’ve had a birthday party and a baby shower there as well!!
