THE ESTATE

Weddings at las mariposas

Imagine a dazzling micro-wedding celebration nestled amongst a sweeping hilltop view. Timeless architecture inspired by the beautiful Spanish Villas of old in an organically romantic setting perfectly fitting for your love to take flight.  

A true labor of love, Las Mariposas is a privately owned estate located in the North Hills of San Diego California, thoughtfully curated by former wedding photographers and owners Mario and Arleth Gutierrez, for couples who fancy the freedom of designing their dream micro-wedding celebration of up to 75 guests with plenty of flexibility.

 

Customize your micro-wedding experience by using the vendors we love or let your creativity shine with your own vendor selection for an elevated DIY celebration. Whichever your style, we'd be honored to fly with you along the way. Let's connect!

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.

Fly fearlessly!
