The "Gold Package" is NOT a Cookie Cutter Wedding; your design and vision are paramount to our final product. No problem if you don't know where to start, We do! We will be here to guide you through this wonderful journey of expression. Every great wedding has a theme, perhaps not a Movie or Song, but a theme like Love, Family, Friendship or Togetherness. This "Theme" should be experienced by all of your family, and guests, and will remain in their memories for a lifetime. Allow us to take a peek into your imagination and dreams, and we will project these visions into your one-of-a-kind personalized Celebration of Love!

    We needed to pull our wedding together in a relatively short period of time. Victor and Misty both made this task possible and did so with what seemed like such ease, which lifted a lot of stress and pressure off of us. They gave input and advice when our imaginations would come up short, and they worked mercifully well within the budget we had. What they helped create for our perfect day certainly could not be achieved by ourselves and would have cost us so much more elsewhere! Their recommendations for the cake vendor (was delicious and beautiful!) and our photographer vendor (BEAUTIFUL and they were so fun!) was a perfect fit and so memorable. The Sterling Castle was a tremendous blessing to us!

    Misty and Victor are absolutely wonderful. Some of the sweetest people we have ever met. We planned it out of state and contacted misty through email, phone, and Facebook messenger. She was so personable and wanted to see pictures of my dress which I thought was so sweet! She took care of the cake, officiant, and decorating, champagne, and our snacks and our music! They have many more options if you are looking for a grander event than ours but we wanted a small intimate gathering :) Everything was so perfect. I was floored when I walked in the day of. There were pink ribbons by the gazebo, gold ribbons on the swing and the inside looked like a princess' private dinner party!!!! It was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. They were a ball to work with!! Nick and I wanted to do surprise songs and they totally respected our privacy and made sure to keep everything extra secret :) we both had Facebook message threads going! My husband and I had no idea where to start with planning and Misty was such a tremendous help. She knew just where to start to get us going! I recommend everyone go with the Sterling Castle!! If you want southern hospitality and a fairytale wedding this is the place for you!!! :)

    These people make wedding dreams come true!! This is such a beautiful and unique venue and you won't find more wonderful, creative people. They really care about their clients and go FAR above and beyond to ensure you have the best day ever! The packages may seem a little pricey on first glance but when you start comparing what is included against what you'd have to pay for separately at other venues, you'll quickly realize that they are very reasonable. They are also flexible and will help you make the most of your budget. And it's a CASTLE! It doesn't get much cooler than that. My guests are still raving about it. Have a theme or idea that is a little different than the wedding norm? No problem! They can create anything you want! Don't waste your time with other venues...book The Sterling Castle and let Misty and Victor design your special day!
