Perfect Wedding

La Mariposa was our daughter鈥檚 only choice for her wedding venue and when we saw it we immediately understood why. It is spectacularly beautiful.
Steve and Francesca, received us with warm hospitality and offered thoughtful guidance as we moved through the wedding planning process. They were patient and made excellent suggestions, which contributed to an absolutely perfect wedding day. For that, I and my family will always be grateful.
Great food, great DJ and music, Great fun!
Also, it was a destination wedding and Steve got us very good reduced room rates for our out of town guests at the nearby Hilton East in Tucson; a very nice hotel.

Our wedding was spectacular from beginning to end. The owners were amazing. The venue was perfect. The cost was incredible for what we received. But PLEASE let me brag on our officiant/DJ John!!! If you are thinking of getting anyone else officiate. DONT. John is the most amazing person I鈥檝e ever dealt with. He was friendly, accommodating, the music was incredible. But what we really loved about John was the emotion he displayed during our ceremony. You would think he was family. He made us feel like he knew us for years. I could boast about John and La Mariposa for hours- but see for yourself. It鈥檚 the best place in Tucson. Best place in Arizona!!

Amazing Wedding Experience

My Wife and I had our wedding here at the end of January. Steve and Francesca were amazing getting everything set up for our day! We originally had to postpone our wedding a year, in which they were very accommodating. From the DJ (John Lochert) who they recommended, to the food that was served (LOTS and LOTS of compliment, definitely did not disappoint! ) , to the service that was provided, everything was outstanding. We had a lot of out of town guests and no one could believe this venue is in Tucson. Absolutely beautiful and would recommend to anyone
