Groom gently caresses his brides arm as she positions the needle on an old colorful red record player at their music-themed Minneapolis Wedding at Aria


This was such a fantastic music-themed Minneapolis wedding at Aria. Erica & Marcell are an awesome couple, and their wedding party and families followed suit as well. We had so many belly laughs throughout the day. My kind of crowd!

Being a huge music lover myself, I thoroughly enjoyed all their musical touches sprinkled into their wedding at Aria. It’s about as perfect of a venue to fit their theme as you could get. Aria has long been one of my favorite indoor wedding venues in Minneapolis. The exposed brick industrial feel, along with wide open spaces become a blank canvas for any wedding you can dream up. Visit my Featured Wedding Venue post about Aria for more detailed information.

Big shoutout to three of my favorite Minneapolis wedding vendors who were on board for the big day at this premiere wedding & event space in the North Loop:

Kari & company at The Bliss Life (Wedding Planning & Design)
Chowgirls Killer Catering (Local, Seasonal, Organic, and Delicious Catering)
La Petite Fleur (Awesome Flower Design)
