Working with Misty was awesome! She and her family took care of everything on a short notice, had recommendations, and made sure I didn’t have to worry about anything. We had a small elopement wedding, didn’t cost us a fortune, but was elegant and dreamy. My fiancé and our children could not have been happier with our day! I would recommend this venue to anyone! We had a perfect fairytale wedding and made wonderful memories for our family!
I work full-time and am new in my career, so though I wanted a fairy-tale wedding, time was not on my side. That is, until I found the lovely family of Sterling Castle! The Binkerd's took my vision of an English Romantic wedding and turned it into something even dreamier. From the flowers to the table decor, everything was perfect. My husband and I are so happy to have started our Happily Ever After at the Sterling Castle! Thank you!!!
My husband and I came to Misty with a Harry Potter vow renewal theme and they ran with it and made it a sight to be seen!! Misty/Victor, and Brennan, were beyond the best hosts, planners, and people (and the Sterling Castle the best location) that we could ever hope for - all in one place! DO NOT underestimate what they are capable of or their abilities to understand EXACTLY what your vision is and so much more than you could ever dream up on your own. I do not mean anything towards the planners out there in the area, but I just cannot imagine ever having a better planner or visionary tha Misty and I am someone who is hard to impress. I truly could not ever express our gratitude to them for making our day perfect! Our family was blown away and had the best time they had ever had at any wedding which is more than I could hope for. Whether you are wanting a themed wedding or something elegant or simple, Misty will dream it up for you; Victor can create the most amazing props and effects; and the whole family will come together to do all they can to make it perfect for you! You may not opt for wands, butterbeer, pumpkin juice, winged keys, and floating candles, but no matter your dream, you cannot go wrong by choosing the Sterling Castle!
The Sterling Castle was everything I was looking for in a wedding venue and more. Misty, the Fairy Godmother, was incredible. We kept in touch through the entire planning process and the flexibility was amazing up until the last minute. Not only is the Castle great for photo-ops, they do the entire set-up and tear-down for you! Your only job? Show up and smile. Thank you all so much!
We had a great gatsby wedding on NYE, and The Sterling Castle gave us everything we had hoped for plus some! I would recommend this place over and over.
The best venue with the greatest people! We have amazing memories thanks to their hard work. Everything was handled for us which takes so much of the stress off. I would recommend this venue to anyone! It's so worth it!
It's a family business. They are very welcoming and make you feel like part of the family. Thru are also very flexible and open to suggestions. Misty is amazing. She is a master coordinator and decorater!
Misty, Victor, Kelsi, and Brennan made our day as stress free and magical as I could have ever imagined. It was the most fun I’ve ever had at a wedding and it’s not because it was my own. Choosing The Sterling Castle as your wedding venue is worth the drive!
The team at The Sterling Castle were the absolute best! Misty, Victor, Kelsi, and Brennan do such excellent jobs. They cater to your every need and go above and beyond what is expected. Our wedding was the most magical night for us, and it was all because of them. I’m so happy I found about the Sterling Castle! I highly recommend anyone desiring a truly exceptional wedding to see them!!
Misty & Victor are amazing!! We set up a time to check out their venue and as soon as we walked the grounds we knew it was the perfect place for our special day. They are with you every step as you plan your big day. We planned our wedding in such a short amount of time and not once did they make us feel rushed or pressured to make decisions. Thanks to Tropical Storm Nate, we were unsure of how our day would unfold. Victor went out of his way to find extra generators in case we needed them but luckily the power came back on and our wedding was absolutely perfect. They make you feel absolutely welcome and relaxed. The Castle is breathtaking and I am so anxious to see the rest of our photos. Thank you Misty & Victor for such a great experience! If you are looking for a venue that is stress free and beautiful, I highly recommend The Sterling Castle!
Where do I start?? The Sterling Castle is a beautiful place to get married! Misty, Victor, Brennan, and Kelsi made sure everything went smoothly and made my day as comfortable as possible! My family felt welcomed, and the ceremony and reception were decorated beautifully. I gave Misty my vision of my dream wedding and she made it look even better than I had imagined. I am truly grateful for everyone at The Sterling Castle. If you are trying to find a place to have your wedding, pick this place!! You will NOT regret it!
There's no words that can express just how Misty, Victor, Brennan, Kelsi, and Baby Binkerd means to us. They're truly apart of our family and hearts. The Sterling Castle is now an extended home away from home, where there's a Lock of Love never to be perforated.
If you're looking for an all inclusive wedding venue that will literally do it all, this is it. This place is amazing and the family that runs it are just as great. They handle everything from A to Z. You won't have to worry about working with 5+ different people for each different aspect of a wedding. Here they can handle it all at one place for one price. It's truly a fairy tale wedding venue. Misty and Victor are so welcoming and helpful. They make you feel like you can have whatever you've dreamed of possible for your wedding. The whole family comes together to make your wedding as amazing as possible. I can't say enough how awesome our wedding was. Only bad thing I can say is that it flew by too fast!
Absolutely magical, fairy tale like, enchanting, gorgeous were all words we and our guests used to describe our unforgettable evening at the Sterling Castle. Misty and Victor and all the staff were amazing, ensuring everything was done to perfection, even beyond what we had asked. They upgraded our seating and table décor just because they wanted it to look more beautiful. I loved all the little details of lights, music, bubbles on the dance floor and excellent food. The sword to cut the cake was a great touch. If you want a gorgeous wedding done right by professionals, look no further.
The Sterling Castle has the best venue in Alabama. I would even stretch and say one of the top venues in the country. They are tentative to every detail of your wedding! It doesn't matter if it's a DIY package or the biggest package they have. Misty and Victor Binkered along with their son Brennan and his wife are the most hardworking people I've met! They really care about your happily ever after.
It was worth the investment to have this beautiful, all inclusive venue. We enjoyed the entire journey with the Binkerd family. They ensured that the wedding was exactly as our daughter and son-in-law desired. We enjoyed the process and the wedding day to its fullest. A joyful, perfect day!
What a wonderful family and a wonderful venue. They did everything in their power to make our wedding the best day ever! Everything was so beautifully done, and all logistics were handled so seamlessly!
Thank you for everything! You are the most incredible fairy godmother!!! ???? The wedding was so much more than I dreamed of!!! Every single perfect detail was breathtaking. The day went by smoothly without anything going wrong. I felt so well taken care of and attended to throughout planning as well as during the wedding day. Despite my hectic work schedule, they made the enire process effortless. Their professionalism, creativity, and passion shines through in every aspect. Everyone who attended the wedding has told me they had the best time, and that this was the greatest most magical wedding they've ever attended. If you or anyone you know needs a wedding venue, look no further than Sterling Castle. All expectations were exceeded!!!
There's really not enough space. Which is why it took me so long to share a review. I was trying to condense in my mind (lol) what I could say about the staff of The Sterling Castle without being too wordy. It's impossible. There's so much that they do to make your wedding, perfect. We are very detailed and the staff here are so on point with details & excellency. We were so pleased with the quality of service. Compared to other venues in the area we definitely got more for our buck. We are simply in awe of how well they planned & executed everything. In our opinion they went above & beyond to make our daughters day perfect. Not only were they exceptional but all other vendors they connected us with were awesome as well. They are so professional and I highly recommend them. We left feeling like Misty, Kelsi, Brennan & Victor were family! They certainly took the load off. They are the best. Hands down! The accommodations at the Castle are luxurious. The venue is perfect. Our expectations were exceeded. In a Nutshell??
Wow I cannot say enough to thank Misty Victor Brennan and Kelsi for everything they did to make our wedding magical. There is not a single thing about our day that either of us would change. We had a rather unconventional elopement type wedding. I say unconventional because the Binkerd team went above and beyond, breaking some stereotypical rules for what makes an elopement to make our wedding the most beautiful and sentimental one that either of us have ever seen. We are eternally grateful from the bottom of our hearts and cannot recommend the Sterling Castle strongly enough. They really put the bride and groom first and make the whole family feel so special.
Where do we start - Between two working parents and a newborn, we were not the most involved wedding planning participants. I created a Pinterest Board and Misty breathed life into my vision!
The crew at Sterling held our hand through the entire process and words cannot describe how beautiful it was in the end. We had a 5:30 wedding and spent the entire day there. Both the bridesmaids and groomsmen + their families noted the overall comfortably and beauty of the the grounds and accommodations at Sterling Castle. To say the green space was stunning would be an understatement - fresh blooms everywhere which made for a beautiful night and some really great photos. The food was AMAZINGLY GOOD (literally people kept talking about it and asking for seconds), and the love lock was sentimental touch that we enjoyed and will cherish forever.
Spring for the fireworks (we did it as a surprise option) they are definitely worth it. We wanted a fairy tale wedding and Sterling definitely delivered and then some! Misty we can't thank you and your family enough for making our day so special!
I could not have asked for a more beautiful venue for our wedding or a more professional and helpful crew! Misty, Victor and their team is the absolute best!! They were so accommodating to my requests and they were always there when I had questions. It really made planning this wedding 10 times easier! The day of, everything was set up perfectly and their entire team worked so hard to make sure our big day was amazing. I cannot thank them enough for what our friends have called the best wedding they have ever attended.
Every bit of my Wedding Day was absolute perfection!!! Every detail of decoration, floral design, layout, catering etc. was breathe taking! Let me tell you Pinterest ain't got nothing on Misty! All our guests are still raving over how gorgeous our wedding was!
My husband and I opted for the "sterling package" for our wedding in March and it was the best decision we made. You won’t be able to duplicate this anywhere else especially for the price. Plus, I never had to feel an ounce of stress because they handle everything, that alone is priceless!
There just isn't space to leave a review that reflects my wonderful experience with The Sterling Castle! I had the time of my life :)
Stop questioning it, and book this place immediately. Misty and Victor are beyond amazing. The venue is one of the nicest, if not THE nicest places you'll come across. It is very large with plenty of different places for people to congregate and never feel cramped. Their responsiveness and professionalism is beyond compare. They offer a multitude of options for your special day. One thing I would recommend is that if you're planning a DIY wedding, and just want to rent the venue, just bite the bullet and pay for one of their packages.
We tried to DIY ours to save money and wound up spending just as much and it was beyond stressful and disorganized. No fault of The Sterling Castle's, but we really wish we'd have bought a package instead.
Book this place immediately. You won't regret it.
It went by so fast! Thankyou so much for all the work you and your family put into making everything perfect - that was definitely the best wedding I've ever attended and I don't think I'm being biased just because it was my own! Everything was absolutely beautiful and more magical than I could even dream of ??
