According to one of Chanda’s LGBTQ+ couples,”Our wedding, to put simply, was perfect and this was because of A Monique Affair. Chanda and her team were able to help my now husband 🙂 and I create a vision for our wedding that fit us as a couple. She then was able to find vendors that could execute that vision without any flaws. Finding good creative partners was especially important to us as we had already experienced some hesitation with other vendors when we explained that this would be an LGBT wedding. Chanda’s 20 years of experience helped us avoid any issues and we got to interview and work with only the best the Bay Area has to offer. Every vendor she recommended and we worked with was professional and a joy to work with.”

Chanda’s LGBTQ+ weddings have been featured in several national publications, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Munaluchi Bride, The Knot, and Today’s Bride.
