    Krystle was so welcoming and helpful during the initial tour and booking process. We were given a complete video tour of the soon to be built venue. She was so informative of what would be included, the various options and pricing. She worked within our budget to help meet our needs without breaking the budget as well. We are SO excited to have our wedding at the Sterling. the venue and amenities are exactly what we envisioned for our special day. The customer service was excellent and response to questions were always quick and thorough. Highly recommend having your special day here!!
