The castle is absolutely gorgeous. The planner, Misty, is extremely helpful and very friendly. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely get married there again.Sent on 06/30/2021

Can’t say enough
Searching for venues We stumbled on Sterling Castle. Instantly this princess fell in love. Never thought I would be able to pull off a fairytale wedding. We looked at tons of venues that weekend. Sterling Castle was our first one. It set an extremely high standard no other place could even dream of competing with! We feel like most brides do. We have this once in a lifetime love. We can’t wait to share our story with friends and family. Meeting the Binkerd family sealed the deal. They have a true passion for love, romance and weddings. Touring the venue they showed us how much love and thought was put into each and every aspect of their place. I’m such an intentional person and everything they did was for the intent to display a love story. Then they repeated that with my family. They had a huge variety of options on the food, ceremony places. It was also going to rain on our day and the last minute we were able to move to our original spot. Tons of adorable picture options. If I had a wish they did everything in their power to grant it happily. The day of the wedding was no different. They even took time to show my family around to show them the hidden gems of this place. Made them feel very special. Every detail exceed my expectations. As if the venue itself wasn’t a wow factor. Misty design for all the flowers and decorations was beyond belief. She has a unique gift. We left there feeling like family. Comparing to the other venues we looked at we were happy to feel the love and romance from Sterling. Someone to join us in our day. Not just provide a space for us. It will forever be a special place in our hearts. We are already trying to find a reason to celebrate at the Castle!Sent on 03/19/2021
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 :)
Absolutely amazing and caring people! The Sterling Castle is the best venue in Alabama. We have worked with them many times and always had the same fantastic experience. We absolutely cannot recommend them enough.
If you are looking for a special place to get married that is unique and different look no further. Misty is amazing and does everything in her power to make your day run smoothly. She is always checking on us while we are setting up to see if we or our brides need anything. The place is fabulous and the makeup and hair room has the perfect set up and lighting. Go check them out!
