...WHO IS FEARLESS TO LOVE, TO RISK, TO FALL,
TO RISE AND EVENTUALLY TO FLY.

DON'T GO WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD. GO INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson -
Have you ever dreamed of something big? So big, it almost scares you? So seemingly unattainable yet relentlessly unshakable in your heart that you simply must find out what's on the other side of that fear?
We are Mario and Arleth Gutierrez, wedding photographers turned passionate dreamers. In 2014 we sold our home and all that we had to pursue our dream of building a premiere luxury wedding venue in San Diego, California. We moved ourselves into a small bedroom and with the deed of a beautiful 4.9 acre hilltop in hand, all security, stability and complacency were tossed, breathlessly, out the window. Left in their place? The journey of a lifetime.
People thought we were crazy, and we probably were! But sometimes one must choose not to go where the path may lead, but go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
We'd be honored to meet you along the way.
