    January 2021 Wedding

    Sterling Events provided excellent food at reasonable price during this covid season. The staff was friendly and very helpful in setting up and breakdown the venue. They helped setup our tables and decor, which made the wedding more enjoyable and stress free for this family affair. Lauren was easy to communicate with, offered selections and options when requested, provided excellent customer service! If we had to chose again for another event, we will go with Sterling Events!

    I cannot say enough good things about Sterling. I had them cater my wedding in November of 2015. Prior to hiring them, I did a ton of research on caterers, which included reading every review written, and comparing every category that came along with the service. Of the seven vendors that I could choose from based off of the requirements from my venue, Sterling came in first with reviews and cost.

    At first, the thought "you get what you pay for" came to mind. But from the great communication and constant contact with the coordinator Shea Johnson, to the tasting with the cook, to the menu selections, to the special orders with dietary needs for my guests, all the way through the final product at the wedding, I was all the way around pleased with my decision.

    2 months later, I still have guests from the wedding telling me how good the food was. They all say wedding food is never anything to write home about, but that meal was SO GOOD!

    I was very impressed all the way around, and would HIGHLY recommend this company for your catering needs.
