    Friendly, accommodating, and gorgeous wedding venue and staff!

    When beginning the wedding venue search process, I had to idea what to expect. Once contacting Krystle, her professionalism was apparent, and the importance she placed on my needs and my wedding was beyond what I had experienced at other locations. Once stepping on the premises, the feeling felt by my fiance and myself was that which I had only imagined before. It felt like a wedding venue, like my wedding venue. The feeling coupled with Krystle's knowledge and expertise was exactly what we needed to feel comfortable in securing a date at the venue of our dreams.

    We cannot wait for November 2020 and cannot wait to show off our wedding venue to our family and friends. The menu options, the value, the scenery, and everything else included was too amazing to pass up. Thanks again Krystle for helping us and answering ALL of my questions along the way, no matter how crazy or farfetched they seemed. You have been awesome to work with thus far, and I cannot wait for our wedding day!!

    Krystle is a dream come true! From day one I wasn’t sure I’d find the place I needed for the amount of people and within my budget, but I confided in Krystle and she made all of our dreams come true. I feel so honored to be married at the sterling!! It’s a dream come true!!
