    Daughters wedding

    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.
    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!!

    Thank you so much! Wow, yes that was before we started our journey or the remodel. We appreciate you so much!
