Aster Cafe-River Room
The Aster Cafe made our wedding so memorable and enjoyable. They have an excellent team- we are STILL getting comments about how great the bar staff and wait staff were. Considering it was the middle of the largest blizzard of the year, staff could have been crabby and late, but everyone was smiling and quick to help when needed. The coordinators were so helpful and reassuring through the planning process, and so kind through the event, handling everything with such grace. The River Room was perfect for our group of about 80.Sent on 05/31/2020
The planning process was also a highlight of the experience with the venue. We toured the room a couple of times, and the coordinators were quick to answer questions and work with our ideas. While creating the menu we changed our minds multiple times but they helped us refine our ideas and it turned out amazing- all of the food was incredible.
January 18th, 2020 was both the coldest and best day of our lives. Despite the storm, it was not at all stressful and that was largely in part to Aster.

Best Groom's Dinner Spot
Aster hosted our groom's dinner, and it was a night to remember! We booked the River room, and it was perfect! The venue has so much character, beautiful view, and very roomy.
The bartenders, servers, and the Chef were fantastic! We had many great drinks, and everyone is still talking about the food. I'm telling you... the food was some of the best I've ever had.
I strongly recommend you consider the Aster cafe for hosting your groom's dinner or wedding, for that matter!Sent on 10/17/2019

We had a smallish wedding of 65 people in the River Room and our day was absolutely perfect. We chose to do a Sunday Afternoon brunch of plated and served Eggs Benedict and French Toast and then had flatbread pizzas served at Happy Hour time about 5:45pm during our dance with our small bluegrass trio. Everything was stunning. If you plan on having your ceremony in the River Room note that the space is a bit tricky for photography and getting a good spot with light. We were fortunate to have an amazing photographer who was there early to help us set up and create the optimal ceremony space. I'll include a picture of how we set it. Hope that helps!Sent on 12/19/2019
