The most magical night ever! From the food tasting all the way up to the night of my wedding, I was completely impressed. As the bride, I was treated like a queen from the beginning! The food is UNBELIEVABLE and the staff was top-notch. We had approximately 90 people attending our wedding ceremony and reception on a Saturday evening in August in the Imagination Ballroom. I didn't even know the Ameristar had these spaces and am so glad I chose here for my event. It was spacious and elegant and flowed very nicely. Jodie, Samantha, and Miguel were on top of every single detail, I never had to worry about a thing and my glass was never empty! :) The guests were so complimentary, saying they had never been to a wedding more beautiful and how great the food was. Honestly, there was not one moment I would change.
I had both my rehearsal dinner and wedding reception at Ameristar. Everything was wonderful and easy since the moment we booked the venue. Jodie and Samantha are wonderful to work with and they made sure every detail was perfect. The food was so delicious and the service was outstanding. I've received so many compliments from my guests regarding both. The ballroom is absolutely beautiful and provided the perfect setting for our wedding night.
The entire Ameristar Team & Venue exceeded our lofty expectations throughout the week-long celebration with 24/7 support both prior to and during the event! We selected Ameristar Casino Resort as a Destination Wedding Venue to accommodate our out-of-town guests and family members. From arranging Hotel & Spa Packages, Bus Travel to the Wedding & area Wineries, Rehearsal Dinner & Private Trivia Event at the Bottleneck Blues Bar and the spectacular Wedding Celebration hosted at Ryse - their Team handled our quirks and craziness with understanding and compassion! Our guests have not quit commenting on what a fabulous week of festivities that they were able to enjoy and be a part of. More importantly, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall Ameristar VALUE and professional services carried out by their entire staff. This included everyone from the bellman, hotel front desk and our various venue hosts & wait staff. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding a very special and enjoyable event. We truly had a BLAST!
We recently got married at the Ameristar in the Ryse nightclub area. Jodie, Samantha and Miguel were amazing for everything. Everyone keeps talking about how amazing the food and venue were. Definitely the most magical and perfect night ever!
My husband and I got married at this venue and it was everything we could’ve dreamed of and more. The choices for reception rooms and ceremony locations throughout the venue were amazing. We ended up going with the Imagination Ballroom and the way the staff prepared the room for our big day was phenomenal. Words can’t even begin to explain how beautiful and perfect they set everything up. This location is very family friendly and we have guests of all ages. We worked with Jodie and Samantha and they were a godsend! They know exactly what to do to make your big day go as smooth as possible. It was like having two private wedding planners. They’re help and professionalism made everything less stressful on my husband and I. From their assistance with prices, rooms, rehearsals, and rehearsal dinner! I couldn’t have been more pleased. I would recommend this venue to any bride and groom looking for a family friendly (or adult friendly) venue. My family is from out of town, and the Ameristar is the only place they want to stay when they come to visit. I highly highly recommend this venue! I could type amazing things about this place until my fingers fall off, but you have to visit it to see all the things it has to offer both you and your guests.
I couldn’t have imagined anything more magical for our big day! The Ameristar staff went above and beyond to make us feel like royalty. No request was to big or to small. Having Samantha as our event coordinator felt like we had our very own wedding planner. All the stress was taken away from me so I could enjoy every minute. Thank you for all that you did!
We recently had our wedding at Ameristar and the venue is incredible. We wanted an elegant wedding and the Discovery Ballroom was exactly what we hoped for. We had our ceremony and reception all in the same ballroom and the staff were able to transform the room to exactly how we wanted it. While the venue is beautiful and gorgeous, the actual cherry on top is working with Jodie and Samantha. They were super helpful from the very beginning and were even able to accommodate all of our last minute changes. Also, our guests had some much fun at our wedding that when it was time to end our wedding, everyone moved down to the casino to continue the party! Ultimately, we had an amazing experience with Ameristar and would highly recommend to everyone.
What an amazing place to have a wedding! Our wedding was in the Imagination Ballroom, and was just so beautiful and perfect. Also the staff was phenomenal. Samantha is a such an attentive venue coordinator, I couldn't have asked for better. Also the staff that night for the wedding was amazing. Everyone took special care to make sure every detail was perfect! 10/10 venue!
We had our wedding ceremony outside on the lawn by the pool. It was absolutely beautiful. Samantha was amazing and incredibly helpful. She helped the day go smooth. She helped add extra rooms to our room block and guaranteed that my husband and I were happy with the event. There are lots of activities for guests to go, rooms are reasonable and the environment was so much fun! Thank you Samantha and the rest of the Ameristar crew for helping us have an amazing day!
Samantha and Jodie were absolutely amazing from when we first booked our ceremony and reception, to the tasting, to the week before when I started freaking out, through the day of. They took their time to get to know us and what we wanted for our wedding, answered all of our questions, and took care of so many details we never would have thought of. When putting up our decorations they exceeded what I had envisioned. Everything was streamlined and so easy. I wouldn't trade our experience for anything! Thank you so much Samantha and Jodie!!!
I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at Ameristar in St. Charles and had the best experience! We worked with Samantha for over a year planning all the details for our big day. Samantha was highly responsive and always tried to accommodate every need we presented her with. She was extremely calm and attentive the day of the wedding and I loved working with her. The Ameristar staff was also unbelievable during the reception. My husband and I were waited on like a King and Queen. They were so friendly and prompt. The venue itself was also stunning! We were married on the event lawn and had our reception in the Discovery Ballroom. All of our out of town guests also stayed in the hotel. They raved about how amazing the venue was and said they loved how there was so much to do within the property! I would highly recommend this venue & their staff!
Our wedding reception was all planned to be at Bogey Hills Country Club. Seven weeks before our big day it burned to the ground. We reached out to Ameristar and luckily my date was available. Not only did Ameristar price match, but also reached out to Bogey Hills for recipes that we had picked out. Samantha and her team were amazing and made re-planning part of the wedding so close to the date so much easier. 4 months later and we still have guests comment about how amazing our reception was, especially the food! I can’t say enough great things about Samantha and Ameristar.
We recently had our wedding reception in the ballroom at Ameristar and can't brag enough about the staff and the service we received! Not only was our reception BEAUTIFUL, but Samantha and the staff were amazing to work with and very accommodating! Throughout the planning process, Samantha was very organized, responsive, and extremely helpful! She went above and beyond to create the most perfect reception for us, and always made sure we were happy! Everything from the planning, decor/setup, food, staff, and hotel was beyond what I imagined. When booking our reception with Ameristar, one thing I was excited for was the food. I had heard from many previous brides that the meal from their wedding was amazing, and they were definitely right! Our guest raved about the food and how incredible it was. And I personally don't think I have ever had such an amazing wedding meal! Ameristar definitely goes above and beyond for their bride and grooms! Little things, such as bringing us drinks throughout the night, carrying/delivering gifts and decor after the wedding , and having champagne and strawberries in our room, made our experience such a memorable one! I am so thankful for the Ameristar staff, they made our wedding such an amazing day and definitely impressed us and our guests!
Such an AMAZING Ceremony & Reception Space!Reviewed on 11/22/2015 Jessica R
We had our ceremony and reception at the HOME Nightclub inside Ameristar Casino. It was no doubt the best decision we made for our wedding plans. The space is contemporary, sleek and very versatile. I feel like it was made to host wedding events. The cocktail hour, ceremony, and reception were all held in the 3 different areas that make up the nightclub. The lounge was transformed into a beautiful and intimate space for our ceremony. The cocktail hour hour space is so fun and beautiful but the real amazement of the space is the nightclub itself where the reception was held. The entire staff at Ameristar bent over backwards for me, my husband and all of our guests. Anything we wanted they made it happen. Samantha Hoester, my coordinator was so attentive to every thing we wanted to accomplish and had such great pointers along the way. They will customize anything you need from menus to table setup and even hotel room reservations. Our guests were blown away by the space and the staff and told us that we held the wedding of the year! I wish I could do it all over again!
Bridal showerReviewed on 7/13/2015 dayna f
One of my best friends had her bridal shower at an Ameristar banquet room. The room was gorgeous, and I would recommend it to anyone. The service was excellent, and they really seemed to care about the party and the guests more so then getting my friend's money.
Terrible service- not worth your moneyReviewed on 6/27/2015 Kate K
My husband and I stayed at Ameristar the night of our wedding and it felt like a chore to change our reservation from a room with 2 queen beds to a room with 1 king bed. Our reservation was for 1 king bed to begin with but the front desk acted like we were being done a favor to get a king. We had a few other things come up with our stay which lead to our request to speak to a manager who refused to refund us our room should we leave. He said we could take it up with his boss who didn't work until the following morning. Overall, the lack of service and empathy by the staff was extremely disappointing and we will not be giving Ameristar our business ever again. For the money, I would strongly suggest another hotel for your wedding night or any other night.
We recently had both our ceremony and reception at Ameristar Casino and we are so happy with our decision. Samantha was assigned to our event and was absolutely FANTASTIC to work with! I had a million questions and she had a million answers - with a smile on her face the entire time! Our guests loved having everything in the same place and it was so convenience for us too! We also received several compliments on the food, and I have to agree - delicious! Our reception was in the Nightclub Room and it was amazing! The team did an amazing job setting up the room and it looked even better than I could imagine. The room was beautiful and we had an amazing day - thank you Samantha and team!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDReviewed on 5/29/2014 Tim K
We had our wedding in the ballroom for 180+ guests. Jodie Parker (the event coordinator) is great to work with and the entire staff from the chefs to servers made it a night to remember. We can't say enough good things about our experience!

Simply Perfect!Reviewed on 8/20/2012 Tammicka B
My reception for 180-190 guest was held at the Ameristar night club. I worked with their event coordinator Jodie Parker, and she is awsome! -The deposit and payment schedule for this venue is affordable and very easy to manage. -We did have a food tasting and all of the options were great! It was so hard to choose. -The night of the reception the wait staff was proffessional and FAST! My guest were served at a rapid pace, while the staff paid great attention to detail. -The bartenders were friendly and courteous and they had a good time along with the guest. Two weeks after the reception people are still talking about how nice and fun the staff was. -The atmosphere just created a fun time -You are given a free room for your wedding night, I used the room for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in before the wedding. The suites are spacious and comfortable. I would suggest to any bride if you want a nice place, that does not have a banquet center vibe, give Ameristar a chance. It felt so good to not have to worry about things at the reception. Pay for your peace of mind!
Great VenueReviewed on 7/29/2012 janetta w
I had my wedding and reception at Ameristar in the Home Nightclub on 07/21/2012. Everything was amazing. Jodie was excellent to work with and the staff did a wonderful job. I am still hearing from family and friends that my wedding was the best one they ever attended. The venue is very beautiful and so unique.
Get the most for your money!Reviewed on 10/17/2011 Courtney P
We had a large guest list so we shopped around to find a venue that could fit us all. We truly got the most for our money at Ameristar. Not to mention the staff was amazing!!! Everything we wanted was taken into consideration. THe food was amazing and the bar offered medium self alcohol without having to pay extra, compared to other venues. Also, the rooms were beautiful so I did not have to have a lot of decorations. I had simple, elegant centerpieces and the room looked beautiful. I received a lot of compliments. I really enjoyed working with the Ameristar staff and having my reception at Ameristar. No regrets!
Meet The Manager
I have been an Executive Sales Manager at Ameristar Casino Resort Spa since August 2006 and, honestly, cannot imagine myself ever doing anything else. I love Pinnacle Entertainment, the Ameristar Property and, most of all, my family of clients that I have had the pleasure of assisting with planning their special day over the last decade. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing all the details come together! I cannot wait to hear about your plans!
