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!

My mother and I met Joey and Lori back in April of 2012 when I first got engaged, which was about a year before Aria would open. Aria was a pile of dirt and drawings on paper, but the Geloso family had an amazing concept. To be honest, I had no interest in going to visit Aria, my dream wedding would not be at a place that was not even built yet nor did I want to have our reception somewhere where we would be one of the very first weddings. We went in to talk with Joey just to get a feel for the place and their concept. By the end of the meeting, I was calling my fiance and telling him we were booking Aria. He thought I was kidding, how could we book a wedding venue by only seeing blueprints and ideas. Two weeks later, we booked Aria with 150% confidence in the Geloso family as their reputation in the wedding and banquet arena speaks for itself and we knew that we would have one of the best venues around. When the day finally came for our wedding reception, we could not have been more thrilled. Our families were there each step of the way watching Aria be built and their dreams come alive. Aria opened three months prior to our wedding and you would have never even know come our wedding day. The Geloso's and Lori and all of the staff at Aria went above and beyond our expectations, our wedding was perfect and I would not have changed a single thing about our wedding! We highly recommend Aria for anyone's upcoming wedding/event, etc. The venue is beyond gorgeous and the food is exceptional! The Geloso's and Lori treat everyone like family and work with you every step of the way- you will have full confidence that come your wedding day, nothing will be overlooked and everything will be taken care of!! Our wedding was almost eight months ago and our family and friends are still talking about Aria! We look forward to going back to Aria for many Monday night dinners and other weddings and events!!!

I recently got married and had my reception at Aria. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the food was outstanding. The staff was very attentive and on top of everything, especially with the fine details that some places tend to overlook. Definitely will be telling my other friends that are looking for a catering hall to have their reception!
