    Amazing They Are!!!

    From start to finish it was amazing!! We decided to get married in 90 days. A change from the original plans and they were still phenomenal!! Everything they said they would do, they did. They stayed in contact with me and my husband. They coordinated with my wedding planner to a t!! The atmosphere was as if they were a part of the family. They filled in all the blanks. I don't ever plan on getting married again, but if I ever need an event hall, I will use the Mambo Room. The evening was magical, and the music...WOW!!

    Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so very happy to be a part of your very special day!

    Last Minute Coordinator, Decorator, Director

    Coming into the planning phase of a wedding two weeks prior to the wedding date is beyond stressful but Kianda and her crew made it completely possible. She was extremely professional. She had to merge before covid contracts to the stipulations of our state's and city's guidelines. Where there were gaps, she not only shined light on them but went out of her way to seal ever gap from planning to decorating. She made my Daughter-in-Love wedding dreams come true. Noone knew the journey in which two weeks took us when they walked in and danced the night away. It was stunning!!!!! Thank you Kianda, our bartender, and Mambo Room for the wedding my son deserved and he and his WIFE will use as the New Beginning of their lives together.
