For those hoping for an intimate wedding setting you simply cannot find a better venue than the Aster Cafe. My wife and I got married underneath the Shasta Tent with the reception in the River Room afterwards. Every single one of our guests told us it was their favorite wedding venue/atmosphere and the food was to quote "AH-mazing!"Sent on 10/22/2017
No review of Aster Cafe without mention of Dawn, their event coordinator, would be complete. From start to finish, we could not have asked for a better captain to man the helm than Dawn. She simply was amazing. Professional, accomodating, and super understanding with all the last minute changes and details we decided to make. She went above and beyond for every step of the process. We cannot recommend Aster Cafe highly enough.

Wonderful venue for small intimate ceremony and reception. We had the most perfect wedding ceremony and reception at the Aster and Dawn was a doll to work with!Sent on 07/25/2017

Where to even begin?! We hosted our 120 guest wedding on a very rainy spring day at the Aster. Dawn was our point person throughout the entire planning process and day-of, and we could not have dreamed of a more capable, flexible, unsayably awesome person to put in charge. A lot of people have mentioned the wonder that is Dawn in these reviews, but I cannot express just how amazing this woman is. I produce events professionally and am especially particular, but I had no problem turning over the reigns the moment we first met-- she's just that good!Sent on 07/03/2017
When the skies parted and began pouring down on our outdoor ceremony site, Dawn and her team were quick to rearrange the chairs under the tent so our guests all stayed dry. The food was delicious, the bartenders were hilarious, and we were simply in awe of the naturally romantic, cozy atmosphere that is the Aster. All of their spaces feel like an old haunt somewhere in Prague-- it's truly one of the most beautiful venues in the city. We chose to host our ceremony under the Shasta Tent, reception in the River Room, and toasts in the Grotto. Because of the historic style of these rooms, we hardly brought in any decor-- the spaces truly speak for themselves. We just brought in some lanterns and tossed the bridal party bouquets in empty vases and voila! Instant ambiance.
Aesthetics aside, we continue to have our wedding guests comment on how much they adored our bartenders, Dawn, and the whole Aster crew. If you're looking to host a gorgeous event with minimal stress, look no further than the Aster!
