You have come to the right place!

Some Kind Words From Our Couples:

  • The Sterling Castle is so magical. Misty, Victor, and Brennan are beautiful people inside and out! They made sure everything, and I mean everything was done the right way, and in the most beautiful way. Dane and I had our wedding on October 31, 2015 (yes, we got married on Halloween, and yes we had a theme.) We chose a Game of Thrones themed wedding, with jewel tones and lots of detail. Every single thing they did I was more than pleased with. Victor built us an Iron Throne just for our wedding! Now that is dedication. Misty or Brennan will ALWAYS answer your calls, and if they don't you will get a call back very shortly. Misty made it so easy for us, we really didn't have to do a single thing. It was truly a fairytale. I could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else. I feel like Misty, Brennan, and Victor are family to me in a way now. They make it so easy for you to fall in love with them. They make sure YOU are happy and the most stress free bride. If you chose The Sterling Castle as your venue, you won't regret it.

  • Get married here. You will Not regret it. I came to Misty and Victor with a scatter brained idea of a Wizard of Oz themed wedding. They took this and made my dreams come true in a classy and whimsical way. It was perfect! They are so helpful and amazing. GET MARRIED HERE!!!

  • Misty and Victor make magic at the Sterling Castle. My husband and I could not have asked for a better experience when when planning our wedding. All of our wedding guests could not stop complimenting the food, venue, service and decorations. What an incredible experience! If you are planning a wedding, you must check out Sterling Castle! I will never ever forget my wedding day at the Sterling Castle, or the two most wonderful people who made it happen. Thank you Misty and Victor!
