I have been to about a dozen weddings in the past five years and was so happy to hear about Aria, (when it was opened for only about 5 months.) When I got engaged in November 2013 we went to look at Aria in December and fell in love right away, from the grounds, to the immaculate interior and complete WOW factor when you drive up the big hill. I loved that at that point they were just getting their name out and that people hadn't heard much about it. From being in so many weddings and attending so many I definitely wanted something different, that no one had been to a bunch of times before. Throughout the 18 month engagement Aria grew in popularity and people then started to comment on how gorgeous it was and how they heard the food was amazing. As a soon to be bride, hearing these things made me feel great and knowing my big day would take place there, made me feel like a princess. Everything went smoothly that day and we were very happy with the staff who was with us during the entire process; Lina, Joe and Kelly. They were easy to work with, easy to get a hold of and were very accommodating. We loved our experience at Aria and are still in awe at how elegant and regal looking it is. We highly recommend this venue with it's delicious food and beautiful ambiance. Any bride, go look at it and it will speak for itself!

Our wedding at Aria 3 weeks ago was absolutely amazing. From when we booked to the minute our reception ended was superb. Any time I needed information they were hands on ready to help. I never realized how much went into a wedding and they guided us through, never missing a step. The staff was so attentive and very professional. The food was outstanding our guests are still talking about it. Seeing the room that night took our breath away. Even though our wedding was early spring the view was still gorgeous. We recommend Aria to any future bride and groom.

We had the best night of our lives. The staff was so attentive, we wanted for nothing. From our ceremony to our last dance and everything in between was superb. The food is fabulous. Our night was everything we dreamed and more. The beauty of absolute luxury that Aria gives off when being there is more than we could have imagined. I will continue to highly recommend Aria to my clients and friends.

I would HIGHLY recommend Aria for your wedding venue. We immediately felt like family at our initial meeting and knew we were in good hands. The service and food is exceptional. People are still talking about our wedding and how delicious their meals were. The venue itself is breath taking. Our reception was on New Years Eve and we were lucky enough that the Aria was still decorated from Christmas. As if the venue couldn't get any more beautiful, they make it look even more stunning for the holidays. If Lina, or Joe could't find myself or my husband throughout the night of our reception, they went right over to my parents to make sure everything was OK. They are amazing! You would not be disappointed with the Aria :)

Everyone at Aria is amazing. From the first time you meet with them to the night of your wedding the Aria makes you feel like family. I felt as if they were my family making sure I was planning the best day at their facility. Joe gave me a binder to work with and in the back it had a checklist to make my wedding planning easy. They were flexible with everything I asked for. They made sure everything was perfect. Arriving there after my ceremony was amazing had an attendent waiting to help my husband and I. The ballroom was also set up better then imagined. Rozanna checked on us personally the night of the wedding multiple times. The food was amazing, all my guest were raving about it also. The look of the facility is absolutely amazing also. Beautiful is an understatement. The way everything is set up is perfect.
Great place!
HIGHLY recommend ARIA for any event your having. I would have my wedding there again.

I want to start by saying that Aria is an absolutely beautiful place to get married and have your reception. With that being said, that's pretty much the only thing that's good about it. I recently got married there and there was a ton of miscommunication between myself and the people at Aria. They said for an additional fee they would've helped me plan my wedding. Wasn't I paying them enough already?! Well that's not even what I want to write about, I want to explain my actual wedding day. We got there at 4 and started taking pictures with our photographer and the person in charge of our wedding argued with the photographer because he needed me to go make a decision about chairs. Its a 34 million dollar venue and the don't have an irrigation system so the grass was flooded where the chairs were supposed to go because it rained the day before. It wasn't something I wanted to stress about so I told him to put the chairs anywhere my guests wouldn't get their feet wet. Our ceremony was supposed to start at 6 and the cocktail hour was supposed to begin around 6:20-6:30. Well the ceremony didn't even start until about 6:30 because they were still setting up tables inside. It was pretty much dark by the end of the ceremony which is the reason we were able to take any pictures outside. That was one of the biggest reasons we chose Aria!

3 gift envelopes were "missing" after our very small wedding of only our closest family and friends. We had video footage of an Aria employee hovering over the gift table (with the gift box open) holding what appeared to be an envelope. We then tried to mail the video via thumb drive to the Aria and the thumb drive was stolen out of the envelope. We tried sending the video again, but it was stolen for a second time before reaching our contact. The Aria argued all aspects of the video and essentially told us tough luck and suggested one of our closest family members or friends stole the envelopes. If you have your wedding here: 1) make sure to have someone watch your gift table and 2) do not expect to get your money back if employees are suspected of stealing money.

Aria was a beautiful venue for our wedding reception. We took a chance, booking before the place was built, but it was worth it. The food was good and plentiful. Lina was great to work with.She was very flexible and just a really sweet person. Joe Geloso was also always very welcoming and friendly to work with also. Overall, I had a very good experience with Aria and would highly recommend.

I can't say enough about our experience with Aria and its staff. From the very first time we stepped in the venue for a tour to the very end of our wedding night, everything went perfectly and smoothly. Lina took such great care of us and even with the 100's of questions I threw her way during the process, she always had a positive and sunny attitude. These people are wedding specialists and they know what they are doing! Leave everything in their hands and rest assured that you are in the best hands possible. The food was AMAZING, the open bar served strong drinks, and the night flowed perfectly without me having to worry or stress about it at all. Because they did such an amazing job, my husband and I were able to actually enjoy our wedding and dance the night away without a care in the world. They handled all our vendors and I never once had to intervene or wonder if things were getting done. My guests all left saying it was, hands down, the BEST wedding they have ever been to. I know we will be talking about how amazing our wedding was for years to come. Antonella was the best bridal attendant on the planet! It was like she was reading my mind and she was always one step ahead of me. Thank you to all at Aria, we couldn't have been any happier. Choose Aria, you can't get any better than them!
