ARIA WEDDINGS - MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING VENUE
Aria Weddings, in Minneapolis MN, are dramatic, vintage-modern affairs. The venue is located in the urban Warehouse District just outside of downtown Minneapolis. The building was designed as a warehouse and storage building by Cass Gilbert, who also had a hand in a wide number of important buildings across the country including the US Supreme Court Building in Washington DC as well as the Minnesota State Capitol in St Paul MN. The building is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places!
Aria weddings are as unique as each of the couples celebrating with them. The venue is extremely flexible and customizable. Outside is a beautiful, vintage red-brick warehouse facade. Inside are old bricks and stone, modern art, chandeliers, beautiful unique lounges, and wonderful lighting. The rooms themselves can be completely transformed. There are three main locations used for weddings - the main room, stage, and foyer. Wedding ceremony layouts can be completely customized using any or all of these three areas. You can customize locations, seating arrangement, the way the couples arrive into the rooms, etc. I have even photographed a wedding-in-the-round at Aria. It was so beautiful! Individual curtain panels can be arranged at will. Different types of lighting can be chosen. (Are cafe lights or chandeliers your thing?) Any variety of vintage furniture can be brought in and arranged at your choice. A variety of caterers can be brought in. Such an amazing, flexible, dramatic, gorgeous venue!
Take a look at the images below to see how beautiful Aria weddings can be! And then give Aria a call if you would like to schedule a tour or would like more information. And of course, I would be so honored to work together on your Aria wedding. Please keep me in mind to partner with to create gorgeous images on your big day!
