My Fiancé and I knew this was the venu for us after our first tour. We actually cancelled all of our other venu tours because we knew after viewing the Sterling in person it was the one for us. If you are looking for an indoor/outdoor venu I would highly recommend. The newly built property is breathtaking as well as the scenery surrounding it. The staff so far has been awesome! They are super organized & very helpful with any questions or needs you may have. Although our wedding isn't for some time I'm looking forward to spending our big day at this beautiful venu!Sent on 10/15/2020

So excited to get married at The Sterling!
My fiancé Nick and I found The Sterling and fell in love at first sight. Krystle took us on a tour and we were blown away in person. The Venue is gorgeous and everything we both wanted.Krystle answered all our questions. She also provided us a packet with pricing details, vendor recommendations and more. We are new to wedding planning so we had many follow up questions. Krystle answered them all very clear and detailed.Sent on 10/08/2020
After booking we met the rest of the team Lauren and Amanda who provided us with more helpful information and tips. Lauren took the time to call me to share in my excitement. The gesture made me feel so special.
Booking our wedding with the team at The Sterling has been so easy and exciting. I can’t wait to continue to work together and plan our dream wedding!

My fiancé and I got engaged last October and knew The Sterling was “the one” as soon as we saw what the final product was going to look like actually. Right off the bat their staff treated us with kindness and compassion and not just like any other customer. Krystal was so welcoming and patient with our questions. Even though our date is a ways away they have been quick to respond to our questions via email surrounding COVID uncertainties. We can sleep at night knowing their staff will take care of us through all these challenging times!Sent on 10/08/2020

I love love! Seeing couples light up when they see our venues for the first time is the highlight of my job.
I love all puppers! I have two huskies and one rescue pup that give the best kisses and snuggles. Favorite menu item: Everything! But if I had to decide I would choose the aged mac n cheese (I'm a soul food type of gal)

My favorite part of the job is when I send my Timberlodge couples down the aisle to finally tie the knot - it's always such a magical moment.I'm obsessed with all things sweets, so I love when couples go outside of the box for their dessert by having a donut wall or cake pops (pls save me one) Our appetizers are to die for, but the BBQ meatballs are my favorite! On the side, I have fun by designing cute Buffalo gear for game day! #BillsMafia

Watching the first few moments after couples walk away from the ceremony area before the bridal party/photographers catch up makes me melt. I'm a sucker for those small, but loud moments.
I LOVE snow. So naturally, I had a winter wedding in all of it's crisp and sparkly glory.My favorite menu item is the Aged Cheddar Mac N Cheese. I've been working on getting the secret recipe out of Chef, but so far no luck..
