We recently had a little weekend getaway at the ARIA in Las Vegas. Located at the heart of CityCenter. It also happens to be one of the largest hotels in the world! Featuring a combination of amenities, high-end services, spectacular architecture and sustainable design. Everything in the entire resort is eco-friendly!
We were so lucky to experience, and share with you, what it would be like to get married and have your reception and this luxury Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. We Started the day with a trip to their soothing spa, followed by a tour of their new romantic wedding chapel, and ended the evening with an intimate dinner at Michael Mina's American Fish. Such a fantastic place to relax with friends and family, and of course, get married.
The Aria Spa is one of those places you could just hang out for the day and be content. With over 80,000 square feet, a Shio salt-infused room, poolside spa cabanas, Japanese stone beds, and an outdoor infinity-edge pool — which you can see below. If you wanted to add to the bliss, their spa treatments are top-notch. A perfect pace to unwind before your wedding.
The Aria Chapel is not your stereotypical Vegas wedding venue, it is an ultra-luxurious setting with all the amenities. Featuring a reception area that is beyond stylish for post-ceremony festivities and includes a bride and groom suite for getting pretty. As you see below the groom’s private lounge comes complete with a pool table and a wet bar.
With accommodations and seating for up to 60 guests, and they also have the ability to broadcast your wedding live online in real time. Fabulous for those who are unable to make the ceremony. The lighting is completely customizable to match colors with the bridal party, theme or tone of the wedding.
Ranging from $2,300 to $10,500, all packages include photography, floral, limousine transportation to and from the Clark County Marriage Bureau and an officiant to perform the ceremony. They have you covered from start to finish.
We must admit that one of the highlights of our trip was our intimate dinner at Michael Mina's American Fish. A cozy restaurant filled with light woods, birch trees and, the coolest Polaroid wall we have ever seen. It really is the perfect place to have your wedding reception after your ceremony at the Aria. It's only a few steps away from the Chapel, and has some of the best food we have ever had.
We arrived to a warm and friendly staff followed by a tasting menu that even had our logo printed on the top. They are able to put together a refined menu filled with flavor for you and your guests. Start with a Grand Shellfish Platter or perhaps some tasty New England Lobster Rolls, follow that with some delicious Cioppino and end with a Fillet Mignon or Fish & Chips. Of course they can fill your table with flowers, escort cards or whatever you may need to make your event personalized.
And don’t forget about the cocktails! Their in house mixologist can whip up a signature wedding cocktail, or you can have one of their signature Moscow Mules in a copper cup (personal favorite). For the more refined folks you can opt to have Pabst Blue Ribbon that comes in an American Fish beer koozie. So much fun ... right?
