The owners of The Sterling Castle, Misty and Victor, truly made our dreams come true. They were not only vendors but also became dear friends. I loved that I did not have to worry about a thing, Misty did everything. The Sterling Castle will do as much or as little as you need them to which makes things run so much smoother. The caterer, flowers, officiant, DJ, wedding cake services they picked were perfect. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my wedding and reception. They made sure everything fell into place nicely. Misty added details to the reception and ceremony that I would have never thought of. And to finish it off they can even light up your night with fireworks! The Sterling Castle gave us a night to remember forever and made our fairy tale come true.

Misty and Victor did a fabulous job with our wedding!! It was the fairy tale we had dreamed of. It's almost been a month and people are still raving about all aspects of the day! It was so stress free Misty took care of everything! I can not recommend them enough! The venue is absolutely gorgeous!!
Misty and Victor were unbelievably awesome. They were there every step of the way. Our wedding planning was stress free with them by our side. We couldn't have been more blessed and happy with this venue and the Binkerds. THEY ARE AMAZING. If you are looking for a beautiful place to get married it's definitely the Sterling Castle. We can't say Thank You enough for making our special day one we will remember for the rest of our lives.
