Design:
Indoor venues include the Elizabeth Ballroom, where you can entertain your guests beneath the grand chandeliers of this 10,000-square-foot majestic space. And toast your new life, for all to see, atop the ballroom stage.

Of course, if your preferred décor is the setting sun or a star-filled Southern California sky, welcome your guests on the sweeping expanse of the 8,000-square-foot Aria Lawn and the Moroccan-inspired, open-air Aria Pavilion. Enjoy fresh coastal breezes as well as stunning views of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and the private golf course.

Or, to create a more intimate setting for your larger party, consider the Manchester Salon and Terrace. This expansive venue, with sumptuous furnishings and drapery, hand-stenciled ceilings and four inviting stone fireplaces, offers a more welcoming, residential feel. Let the celebration spill over into the outdoors on the breathtaking terrace overlooking the Aria Lawn and golf course.

Another option — the Elizabeth Capella — our private chapel is truly a one-of-a-kind space. Beamed ceiling, hand-carved wooden pews imported from Italy, and stained-glass accents create a warm ambiance perfect for your ceremony.

Four Wine Rooms offer romantic lighting and charming ambiance – each richly toned, expertly crafted and evoking an unmatched sense of intimacy. Spend special moments with loved ones under the sun or stars as they shimmer in the pool on the Reflection Lawn. Manicured landscaping, an iron gazebo and a sweeping green lawn set the ideal backdrop for your big day.

Private dining is available in our restaurants, Addison and Amaya. Impeccable personal service is matched by stunning views of the golf course from Addison’s private veranda. Dine at the coveted Chef ’s Table, or reserve the entire restaurant. And Amaya’s Mediterranean-inspired setting lends itself to energetic, memorable dining experiences for up to 30 guests, who will enjoy natural light during the day, crackling fireplaces after dark and beautiful views of the Aria Lawn year round.
