I fell in love with La Mariposa as soon as I saw it. I started planning our awesome Halloween wedding with Rita but Francesca took over from her. I liked Francesca much better. She is fantastic! Everyone at La Mariposa was so friendly, helpful, and responsive. They ordered special beer for us, made sure all the food was perfect, and made sure our wedding was perfect in every way. I would strongly recommend La Mariposa to anyone planning a Tucson wedding. Thank you Steve and Francesca!

La Mariposa was our daughters choice for her wedding and reception. Our wedding was awesome. The grounds are beautiful. Green grass, large trees, lighted gazebo and a pond (with ducks). All which makes you feel like you've left the desert and entered an oasis. The owners and staff were great. They made us feel comfortable and handled every request with a smile. The appetizer's and dinner were amazing.
At night, the beauty of this green oasis turns into a soft glow of white lights and a huge fire pit.
This place was truly a magical location for our wedding and all our guests agreed. We will remember this evening always.
Thanks La Mariposa!

Everything about La Mariposa as the choice for my sons wedding ceremony and reception exceeded our expectations.

We had the most beautiful wedding at La Mariposa on 09.27.14. After looking at a number of Tucson venues back in 2013, we chose La Mariposa for many reasons...the venue is beautiful, the staff is knowledgable and flexible, and the prices are very reasonable and competitive.

We were hoping to have both our ceremony and reception outside, and La Mariposa was more than willing to accomodate us. Francesca and Eric met with us multiple times throughout the year to help us plan and were open and supportive of any and all suggestions/ideas we had.

A week before our wedding, we began to worry about the weather and weren't sure that having both the ceremony and reception outside would be the best idea. Francesca and Eric were extremely helpful and supportive as we decided to move our reception inside and helped to make the transition smooth and flawless.

The day and night of the wedding could not have been more perfect. Francesca and Eric were attentive to us, our families and our guests all night. Our guests had an amazing time, and I heard over and over again how fun and beautiful the wedding was, how delicious the food was and how perfect the venue was. It was and always will be a night to remember! Thank you La Mariposa!

La Mariposa is a wonderful place to get married! The food is amazing, the view is wonderful and everyone we meet and worked with were perfect. Everything we wanted was taken care for us. On the wedding day, the food was on time, exactly as we planed. When we e-mailed them leading up to the event, they got back to us within 24 hours. They helped make our day special and I would recommend La Mariposa to everyone!

My husband and I had the pleasure of being married at La Mariposa in June of 1995, and we have wonderful memories and beautiful pictures to remember our day by. When scouting for an outdoor venue for our daughter's senior pictures, we were thrilled to see that La Mariposa is even more beautiful now than I remember it from almost 20 years ago. Being able to have our daughter's senior pictures taken at the same place that my husband and I started our lives together is very special to us.

The staff at La Mariposa did such a fantastic job with our wedding! We did almost everything in house (catering, DJ, florist, cake) and were so pleased with how it turned out. The food was to die for and our guests are still talking about how delicious it was. The DJ was amazing and played exactly what we wanted (we had a vintage theme and played mostly 30s/40s music and instrumentals). As for flowers, I had an idea in my head but couldn't quite put it into words. The florist figured out exactly what I wanted and just made everything so perfect. Our cake was beautiful and so tasty-we actually had a hard time picking flavors because everything was so good. They even helped me figure out how to get my non-traditional aspects worked into the wedding (like my vintage ice cream truck and my full bagpipe band). Steve, Francesca, and Eric made sure everything went smoothly and really took the stress off of my shoulders. My bridal group was well taken care of even before the wedding with food, beverages, and a cute space to get ready. Also, this is a great venue for kids--lots of well maintained grass for the little ones to run around. Everyone was so kind and accommodating throughout the planning process--this has to be one of the best places to get married/have a wedding reception in Tucson. It is a great value for the high quality service and grounds and I highly recommend La Mariposa to anyone looking for a venue!

Our son and beautiful daughter-in-law were married last weekend and the reception was held at La Mariposa. From start to finish, the evening was positively wonderful! The setting couldn't be more beautiful; an oasis in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert. The landscaping is lush and meticulously maintained, the food superb and, most importantly, the staff is kind, patient, competent and thorough.
There were well over 300 people attending and the service was seemless, the financial outlay very
fair and Eric, the manager, delightful and most capable!
