Aria at The Whitcomb:
An Elegant Outdoor Venue

Celebrate your love surrounded by the open air and grand arches of the 1928 Mediterranean-style veranda overlooking scenic Lake Michigan in the heart of downtown St. Joseph, MI

Aria translates to air and is befitting of our romantic and vintage Mediterranean-style venue that is surrounded by open air and space. Aria is a unique outdoor wedding venue that is attached to the historic building, The Whitcomb.

Aria consists of three venue spaces located on the bluff of Lake Michigan including the majestic rooftop, open veranda, and breezy garden.

Let's Begin!

Say “I Do” in the stately garden, which can accommodate up to 120 guests, or on the romantic rooftop, which can host up to 250 guests. After your wedding ceremony, celebrate your love as a newly wedded couple with cocktails on the rooftop, a decadent dinner, a champagne toast, and a night full of dancing with Lake Michigan sunset as the backdrop on the veranda, and wrap up the day with late-night snacks in the garden.
