So much help in the planning phase, can't wait to get married here!
Aria is the gold standard. We couldn't have dreamed of a more beautiful venue. All of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. And, it's surprisingly affordable! I loved how flexible they were to work with - especially that they had a choice of several caterers. Kastina was lovely to work with. Even on the day-of when we needed a last-minute place to store our cake, they scrambled to make something work. I would recommend Aria to ANYONE.
Aria is the most beautiful wedding location I have seen and I was lucky to have my wedding ceremony and reception there. I am an event planner and did a TON of research for my wedding location, Aria far surpassed the other 10 venues I visited. Aria is new however the family that owns it has been running a successful catering and event business for many, many years and you can tell in every aspect of their service. They are VERY busy all throughout the CT wedding season, so you must have understanding of this when reaching out to them to answer your questions. I live in Florida but got married in CT and Aria was able to be flexible in planning important meetings leading up the wedding. I would highly recommend Aria to any bride and groom, they do it right and it could not be a more beautiful setting!
I got married at Aria on 9/10/2015. My husband and I were so impressed by this place from the first time we saw it, and the food is amazing! We were originally supposed to have our wedding outside, but it rained, so it had to be inside. I was so worried but the ceremony was just as beautiful on the inside as it would have been on the outside. From the time I pulled up to get ready, to the time we walked out to leave, the staff there was excellent! On top of everything, and there for us anywhere we turned. The atmosphere, and the food exceeded our expectations. I would like to thank Lina and her staff for making us have a wonderful, unforgettable day! I wouldn't have asked for anything better than that.
We had our reception at Aria and it was the most perfect day ever !
We had both our ceremony and reception at Aria on July 25th, 2015. We absolutely loved this venue from the first visit. The food is amazing and the staff was so accommodating.
Whatever we needed, whatever questions we had, the Aria family was there for us every step of the way. We got married outside and our reception was held inside ballroom B (which has a round marble dance floor) absolutely gorgeous! The chandeliers really just sung with their bright and sparkled way all over the venue. The outside fountains and grounds for both ballrooms are absolutely stunning!
We really couldn't have asked for more of a better experience and such a wonderful venue to celebrate the beginning our future together in!
I got married there on 7/23/2015 and it was absolutely phenomenal!!! The staff were all amazing and so attentive to us and our guests! Everything flowed so smoothly. The food was great. I can not say enough positive things about them. Lina is fantastic to work with. They accommodated every request I had. My guests are still raving about what an amazing wedding it was. I had a gueT with a food allergy and they gave her her own server all night who wore gloves and took special care to make sure none of her food came into contact with nuts or nut products. They even went so far as to inspection the label on the cake and bring out the list of all the ingredients to the guest!!! I mean talk about amazing service!!!
Everyone at Aria was amazing! The food was to die for and never came out cold (which was a worry my husband and I had)! The venue was beautiful and the staff were attentive and super helpful! I have zero complaints. Aria was the perfect venue to get married at!
What a beautiful venue! Our guests loved the venue site... the ballrooms really speak for themselves.
Pro's: Great food, staff on the day off was great at accommodating our every need, package prices were relatively reasonably for all that is included, beautiful ballrooms
Con's: They host two weddings at a time in each ballrooms- we could hear the music from the other wedding during our wedding toasts and other important events, making it hard for guests to hear. Also found it sometimes difficult to get responses during the actual planning process of the wedding, sometimes took a day or two to get answers.
We had our wedding 4 weeks ago. We were in the smaller ballroom and wow were we impressed. The changes that took place to the grounds since we first saw it, were spectacular. People couldn't stop talking about the food! Thank you to Joe, Lina and the entire staff for an amazing day! Love, Caitlyn
"Breathtaking" is what I heard most at our wedding. The best decision my, now, husband and I made for our wedding was to put our trust in this spectacular venue. But calling it a "venue" just doesn't describe our experience. It's the place where we celebrated the beginning our life together. It was the place where the event and sales staff prepared and guided us; the banquet staff took care of every detail for us that day. AND the FOOD!!!! What was prepared for us, was fit for royalty. And that's how we were treated all day long! Thank you! Thank you so much for the magical memories. All our best, Deb and Jay
Aria was by far one of the best decisions we made regarding my daughter’s wedding. We visited what seemed to be every wedding venue in Connecticut many of them absolutely beautiful, but once we walked into Aria I had a feeling she had found the perfect place. Driving up to the venue alone just left us in awe and once you get to the top of that mountain the view is just breath taking. The outside was something that was pretty important to us since her wedding was during the spring we really wanted a place that would be both beautiful inside and outside. From the very first meeting down to our last all of our questions were always answered and I was set completely at ease as was my daughter, something that can be pretty hard to do since she’s a bit hard to please. The day of the wedding I was a little nervous because I just wanted everything to be perfect for her and we were not let down. When we pulled up we were instantly greeted by one of the staff members that was with us all night to make sure everything went well which was fantastic. The food was just amazing and our guests enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the pasta and shrimp stations and main course. I really could go on and on about the night, but I can honestly assure you that if you’re thinking about booking there you definitely need to go visit them!! Truly AMAZING place and staff!!!!
WOW! is all one needs to say. Beautiful venue. left my guest in awe. They are still talking about it being the best wedding they have ever been to. The food is fantastic, every single thing that was served was delicious. Lena, our consultant, was always patient, took time to listen and quite professional. During the day of the wedding, everyone working there congratulated us and made us feel so very special. a very kind woman, named Besa was assigned to my Groom and I, she was fantastic. She was also waitstaff yet made sure we had everything we needed. Even came to my rescue when my bustle broke. I was thrilled with the day and thank you for making it so wonderful.
No words to describe this place, and the staff was beyond expectations! Couldn't had a better place to my dream wedding than Aria! Simply amazing!!!
Absolutely perfect!! The team is super accommodating, responsive, and made the entire experience completely seamless! I would definitely recommend this venue for anyone who wants a gorgeous wedding, delicious food and prices you can't beat!
Amazing, beautiful, professional, incredible food and service! I can't begin to describe this beautiful venue and incredible staff! The experience was THE best! The food was to "to die for", the service top notch, and the staff was incredibly personable! Felt like family! Our son was married here on November 16, 2014! We absolutely love Lina and have already referred family and booked two more weddings with this wonderful venue! Can't wait to go back! This is THE place in Connecticut for a beautiful, memorable, and quality wedding! We've attended 4 weddingsand numerous events here over the past year and a half and it is consistently the BEST! ~Kathy R
