    Absolutely Beautiful

    Every detail of our wedding was beautiful, from getting ready, to the ceremony, to the gorgeous reception hall! My husband and I both have very busy jobs not to mention recently having out first child, so we didn't have a lot of time to plan an entire wedding. Misty and her family worked very closely with us to understand exactly what we wanted, even making custom pieces to fit out theme. The food was delicious, the cakes were amazing, and everyone really enjoyed themselves. They truly are incredible at what they do! I wouldn't change a single thing about that day. We will likely be back in the future for vow renewal!

    More than we dreamed it could be.

    Misty, Brennan, and Kelsey were absolutely wonderful. From the first meeting to the planning and execution their goal was to make the day special for us. They went above and beyond in every phase and made our special day more than we even dreamed. We cannot thank them enough for all they did for us. You won’t find a better group of wonderful people to work with to make your day more than you even dreamed it could be.

    The best day ever!

    Picking The Sterling Castle was the best decision we made for our wedding. Misty is a dream to work with and will make your wildest dreams come true for your wedding. Her entire team handled everything and it was absolutely fantastic. I also loved how transparent they are with their pricing. The food was delicious, the florals were gorgeous and it was just the perfect day!

Victor and Misti make it their personal mission to ensure that your wedding day is nothing short of flawless! Any idea or theme you may have is well within their capable hands to create. You should see the Iron Throne from the Game of Thrones series they made by themselves! And that was just for one wedding. Seriously everything these guys do at the Sterling Castle is a labor of love and it shows. Plus I love shooting weddings there :)
