    Expert Wedding Venue

    I helped plan and coordinate my daughter's wedding at La Mariposa. Every person I had contact with here was helpful beyond measure, professional and went out of their way to ensure we were completely happy. Steve, Francesa and John all have done many weddings and are experts at helping to ensure things go perfect. Day of my daughter's wedding down to the last few hours we were unsure if it was going to rain or not. (Will it be inside or outside?) Francesca reassured us, that we only needed it to be dry for a little bit of time to have it outside. (turned out it didn't rain, but even if it had, inside was beautiful also!) The food was amazing, the DJ supreme, the venue itself beautiful! If I had one bit of advice for others- Before you go get something, ASK if they have it! They came through with so much stuff we didn't have to buy (easel for signage, colored linens, candles, mirrors for the centerpieces on the table) I don't have enough good words to say. My daughter said it best when she said it was "More perfect than she could have imagined."
