I went to Aria as a less expensive back up venue originally, however i was absolutely blown away. The venue was nicer than any of the other venues i visited abd the price was unbeatable. The staff was courteous and professional and i am so excited to host my wedding here.

We had a great time from the start. My husband walked into aria and didn’t want to go to any other venue. We mostly worked with Lina, who was extremely helpful, always responded timely to emails and would call back if I left a message. Everything was set up exactly as I had pictured the day of my wedding. And they assign an attendant to the bride/groom who was amazing (We had Besa and I LOVED her). She always made sure we had drinks, made sure we ate, helped me with my dress or anything else I needed. The staff at aria helped us pack up everything at the end of the night and were just great.

Everyone who has been to Aria knows it is a gorgeous venue, but what sets them apart is the level of service you get during your wedding. Our bridal attendant was outstanding and was there for our every want and need the entire night. Multiple guests commented on the wait staff and how incredible they were. There was not one detail that was not perfectly planned and executed. Aria completely exceeded our expectations in every way!!!!

Getting married at Aria was the most memorable experience of our lives. We were very nervous when picking a wedding venue because we wanted to make sure that everything would be just what we wanted. The entire process, Aria made sure that we were planning our wedding just the way we wanted. They guided us through every single detail, making sure that we were happy and assuring us there was nothing to worry about. There are several opportunities to try Aria’s great food, as well- such as attending their monthly Monday night dinners. When the big day came, Aria helped everything run so smoothly. Their staff was amazing and our bridal attendant, Besa, was absolutely incredible. We also had an Aria staff member, Kelly, officiate our wedding and she did an amazing job. The food was AMAZING and our guests complimented it so much. We really wish that we could relive our wedding night. We truly thank Aria from the bottom of our hearts. If you are looking for a venue that will make your wedding a dream come true and treat you like family, we highly recommend Aria!

When my husband and I were looking at wedding venues last year, we immediately fell in love with the grounds and ballrooms at Aria. Even the lobby and common areas are absolutely stunning. After meeting with a sales manager, we were pleasantly surprised that their quotes included price per person WITH tax and tip, which we really appreciated. Because we didn’t necessarily get the date we wanted (we had limited options without going into the following year), Aria even gave us free up lighting and a free dessert. We got married on Friday, April 13th, 2018. While we were setting up the ballroom the day before our wedding, Joe (the owner) stopped by to make sure everything was okay. Although we knew it was early to have the fountains on, we asked Joe if he could get them to work. Sure enough, on our wedding day, the fountains and waterfall were running! We were lucky enough to have a gorgeous day (sunny and 70 degrees!) and the fountains just added to the beauty of the day. Joe was even present on our wedding day to congratulate us, and he checked in with us multiple times. Aria completely exceeded our expectations. We knew the food would be excellent, but the service was phenomenal as well. We had some special requests to speed up the process of the courses so that our guests could spend more time on the dance-floor, and Aria was more than accommodating. Not only that, but our guests were amazed at how each time they returned to their table, their napkin was formally placed at the setting. Our butler, Miguel, kept the room running smoothly and Chrissy, our bridal attendant, went above and beyond to make sure we always had a drink in hand (including our parents). We were so appreciative of her checking in on us and helping us get through the night smoothly. The delicious food, gorgeous ballrooms/grounds, and outstanding hospitality from EVERY employee (including the owner, Joe) make Aria, hands down, the number one best wedding venue in Connecticut!

Our wedding on March 31, 2018 was truly one of the best days of my life. Aria is a beautiful venue, the food was amazing and the service outstanding! So many guests commented how good all the food was (awesome cocktail hour!) and how attentive and professional all the wait staff was. To top it off our bridal attendant was the sweetest woman. I couldn't have been happier the way everything turned out. I highly recommend Aria: the ballrooms are beautiful and the outdoors/ view made for some really beautiful photos. Plus the up lighting really turned it into party mode and they allow the sparkler exit there which was so much fun!

We can not say enough about our experience at Aria since day one when deciding to book our reception here. Our wedding on February 24,2018 was absolutely perfect! We felt like royalty all night long and couldn't have asked for anything more. Our guests continue to rave about the cocktail hour, bar, entrees, Venetian hour, and service. We specifically loved being greeted by Kelly at the front desk every time we went to visit the venue. She was a huge part of our decision to book back in April 2017 because of her confidence in what an amazing place it was. We would definitely recommend Aria to others so that they can have the same fairy-tale experience that we had!

WOW. We never could have dreamed of a better place for us to celebrate on our wedding day. Our "Big Fat Greek-Italian Wedding" had over 250 guests, but "Ballroom A" allowed for all of our guests to sit, stand, and dance comfortably. With family and friends traveling from all over the United States and Canada, we wanted to make sure that they had a great time at our reception. Aria has broken the mold. Aside from the beauty of the venue itself, the staff was empathetic, friendly, and supportive throughout the wedding planning process. On our wedding day, my bride and I were treated like royalty. Aria assigned members of the staff to be there for us for everything from drinks to lighting. The quality of the food was phenomenal. You could have sliced the filet mignon with a fork! Since our wedding day, we have been showered with compliments expressing how gorgeous the wedding reception was. And the photos...my God, the photos! Make your photographer happy and choose Aria. Look no further. If Aria is on your list, it should be the only one on it!

Wow is right, Corey! Your review left us speechless! Thank you for such kind words and for letting us know that you have received positive feedback about your wedding. It makes us proud to know that we met your expectations. Thank you so much for choosing Aria, and please stay in touch with us.

We were so lucky to have our reception at Aria. The venue is just stunning. After looking at pictures online, we knew right away we wanted to have our reception there. My husband and I live out of state, but the staff made it incredibly easy on us. The food was absolutely amazing, and the staff could not have been better. We received compliments all night about the food and staff. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any bride. You are bound to have a beautiful wedding at Aria!

We were thrilled to have had our reception at Aria! Everything from the service, to the food, to the atmosphere was outstanding! We had so many compliments from guests on how fantastic the food was and how much they ate! That was very important to us. We both had been to so many weddings in the past, and there is nothing more disappointing than low quality food... that isn't a concern here at all! We loved it so much, we decided to have them cater our Christmas dinner! I had a waitress assigned to me, and there was a waiter assigned to my husband the entire night. Anytime I turned around, she was there to help me with anything I needed! She even helped me take my heels off and put my comfortable shoes on! She was amazing! We had a huge bridal party - 9 guys, 11 girls, and 4 kids, and we all fit in the bridal suite perfectly with room to spare. They brought all of the cocktail hour food upstairs for us which was so convenient. I can't say enough about Aria. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding venue!
Aria Wedding and Banquet Facility responded with the following comments:
We are humbled by your kind words, Lindsey. It was such a pleasure to work with and for you and we certainly understand the joy of comfortable shoes! Thank you for your lovely review. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.

I can not thank the whole crew at Aria enough for making our wedding day so absolutely perfect! As an Interior designer I had very specific visions and instructions to which were all matched 100%. Not only did they accomplish everything I had asked for as far as décor and design but the food and service was AMAZING! We were given a personal assistant from the moment we entered Aria which made our day easy to enjoy. She brought us food during cocktail hour, reminded us when our hot meals were served, filled our drinks as soon as we finished them and even bustled my huge dress perfectly. Everyone at Aria certainly knows how to run a wedding beyond expectation. I would absolutely recommend any couple to use Aria as their wedding venue. They will not be disappointed and your day will be more perfect than imagined. Thank You Aria! Jolene & Chris Kelly

Jolene - Thank you for such a lovely review. You and Chris are a beautiful couple and we were so proud that you chose us for your big day. Doing what we do is easy when we have clients like you. Please come back and see us!!
