Our wedding at La Buena Vida was absolutely perfect. It is the perfect location for a wedding and it was really fun and laid back. Heidi and Santos made sure everything was taken care of and we couldn’t have been happier. Everything was perfect – the venue, the flowers, the food and drinks, the cake, the dancing, the mariachi band and most of all – the celebrant. Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
