Great event space with an awesome team.
We did an event with Omar and team at the Candela space and highly recommend it. The space is in a great location, really spacious and can be customized any way you want it. Great food and atmosphere. The best part is the team. They are straight-forward and reasonable. You don't have to worry about being mislead or hidden-costs. This makes it much easier to focus on enjoying the event than feeling like you have to manage the unknowns. Would happily work with them again or guide friends their way.Sent on 02/28/2020

I got married a month ago at the Albertson Wedding Chapel and needed a place for the reception. I reached out to Omar at Candela and from the start it was a great experience. Omar was great and prompt with communication. He was very informative and accommodating. We reserved the upstairs private area which turned out to be perfect to accommodate 40 guests. The setup and layout was as planned and exceeded expectations. The bartender and host, Hector, was also great and felt part of the family. The food catering was delicious and on point. All of our guests were extremely satisfied and kept complimenting us on how great a turn out it was. My wife and I could not be any happier. We greatly appreciate the Candela family owned business. Great family! Great hosts! Great food! Great customer service! We would definitely plan another event at Candela and highly recommend you as well.Sent on 01/09/2020
