Sterling Affairs catered our wedding reception recently, and they did a fantastic job! They went above and beyond to make sure the evening went smoothly. The service and food were phenomenal! Shea was our catering coordinator during the planning phase and she was always super helpful and nice, and very professional. Rainbow and Levi were also in charge the day of the wedding, and they both were fantastic! I would most definitely recommend Sterling Affairs!

We were recently married and worked with Sterling Affairs and Events for our use of The Long Center for both the wedding ceremony and reception. During the time between booking the venue and the actual event, we worked with two different coordinators. This experience was night and day and fortunately for us, we ended up with Emily as the big day approached. She was absolutely amazing! Emily was professional, knowledgable, and incredibly responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She took an interest in our event and made sure that everything was in order and ready for that day. She quickly answered any questions we had, made us feel at ease, and assured us that everything would turn out OK and it did. We can't thank her enough for holding our hand through the process and for letting us simply enjoy our day with family and friends. Likewise, the reception was set up perfectly, our vendors had access when they needed it, and Emily worked closely with our outside caterer, taking care of all the details. We did use the beverage service provided by Sterling Affairs and had several guests complain about the attitude of the bartenders, but other than that, everything went smoothly. Keep in mind that our rating for this vendor is based upon Emily as our coordinator and had we done this based on the coordinator we were originally assigned, the numbers would be much lower. Like many vendors, success depends on who you get to work with and I hope anyone using Sterling Affairs and Events gets to work with Emily!

Everything turn out to be last minute. My uncle died the day of my wedding so everybody was not really in the mood to set up and get ready for the party. They help us set up everything, the food was amazing, I got a lot of compliment about the service (really discrete and always smiling) and they cut the cake even if it wasn't in their contract. I will definitely hire them again for an other event

Shea Johnson and the team at Sterling Affairs were awesome! From the point of initial contact, they were very attentive and quick to respond. We scheduled a tasting and the food was delicious! We selected passed appetizers, a two meat buffet which included a starch, vegetable, and salad, and also added their Mac and Cheese "Fun Station." One of our main concerns was that we did not want to serve cold food. We wanted it to be hot! We were delighted when we were able to sit for our meal and were served a hot plate of food. Also, when we selected our menu, Shea asked if there were any special requests for the bride and groom's meals. We requested to have Medium Rare meat for our plates but Medium for everyone else since we know many of our guests would not like Medium Rare. Our plates were served and the meat was cooked perfectly! Everything was delicious and the guests have all made comments about how good the food tasted.

Sterling Affairs also provided the china, glassware, linens, and bartender for our night. The bartender had a great personality, was quick to serve, and was able to keep a thirsty crowd happy all night.

Thank you to Shea and the wedding day crew from Sterling affairs for helping make our dream wedding come true. The food was hot and delicious. A wonderful surprise for us was also when we got into our getaway car to find that we had two meals boxed for us to take away as a late night snack.

Shea and staff were soo awesome!! From the first day I called a year ago to ask questions to coming in and have a tasting all the way to the day of. The chef was very gracious during the tasting and personable. He really wanted us to be happy. During the day of and after so many guests raved about the food saying how good and delicious is was. That is was some of the best at any wedding they had been to. I agree that's why we went with them. Also as far as costs they provided the linens and glassware and set up all for a great price. The menu choices you have to pick from are endless, they have fun stations and many side stations to add on to make it your own. My husband and I love mac and cheese, so we added that as our fun station. It was a HUGE hit. This staff, this food, the prices are the best!!!
Thank you again for making our day the best, according to many of our guests, and us of course!

My daughter had her wedding and reception at Shoal Crossing this past weekend. Larry Kille and his staff were the ultimate professionals! The evening went seamlessly...and the food was divine! Hard to feed that many people a delicious meal...it was DELICIOUS! (We had lots of options from which to choose.) What great folks! And, kudos to all the people working so hard behind the scene!

What a wonderful memory Larry and his friendly, professional staff provided for me and my new wife! The food was outstanding. So many of our guests actually said they'd never had food as good at a wedding. The hors d'oeuvres were scrumptious. The buffet style dinner was out of this world. I'm not sure I've ever had a more perfectly cooked steak! They designed our wedding cakes in such a unique and delicious way, I might not ever want to eat cake again because nothing will ever top it. If you are looking for a place to get hitched or have any other special event, you must have Sterling Affairs provide the grub!!

Shea was amazing to work with and very helpful. She was always there to answer questions and to meet our needs. They catered our rehearsal dinner and wedding and everything was super tasty. They were very organized and everything ran smoothly. The food was delicious and we were able to provide a great variety. Everyone complimented on how great the food was. The only unfortunate thing was the bar service seemed a little slow, but just remember to ask about it if you have a lot of guests who drink.

Sterling Affairs was an amazing caterer for our wedding. Everyone was raving about the food all night and they truly take care of everything so there was no stress for my family or me! All the details were thought of from the place settings on the tables to what foods go well together. They even customized the drinks to our liking since we love lemonade and sweet tea. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer for anytime of event in the Austin area!

With the wedding now behind us, I wanted to take a moment and thank Sterling Affairs for all of the hard work for the wedding reception.

Everything came out beautifully, and I truly wished the night had never ended...or at least that it had lasted a little longer!

The food was fantastic, and everything we could have hoped for in a catered meal. The professionalism and personalization of effort were a major part of our success, and wanted to thank Sterling Affairs again. A special thank you goes out to Shea Johnson for her exceptional efforts in coordinating what proved to be a truly wonderful night!

Sterling Affairs provided the catering, bar, and event services for our December 2012 wedding. We worked with Lindsay Blackwell throughout the entire process, and everything was really great! She was there to answer our questions, helped us make the best decisions based on our budget and guest count, and made sure we were happy with the way everything would turn out before it was finalized! She and our wedding coordinator also worked really well together, so the whole night flowed smoothly and the results were beautiful! Food was delicious, bartenders & wait-staff were friendly, and we know our guests loved it as much as we did.

The catering planner, Shea, was so helpful and kind. I wish that she could have been at the wedding. They did everything that I had asked for, all the way down to the fresh cut jalapenos! The presentation of the food was beautiful. They worked with our budget. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Sterling Affairs did an awesome job catering our wedding. Shea was so helpful! I never had to go to the bar to get a drink because she always had one ready for me. She was there before the ceremony to help calm my pre-wedding jitters and was able to find me some snacks. I didn't think that was part of her job description but the fact that she helped out anyway meant a lot to me! She made sure everything from the processional to the exit went smoothly. All the staff members were also helpful with our special requests and were all very nice and pleasant. And of course the food was delicious! Everyone kept telling us the food was the best they've had at any wedding! I HIGHLY recommend using Sterling Affairs and requesting Shea as your wedding assistant. A million thumbs up!

Sterling Affairs did an amazing job on our wedding. The food was fantastic. I was a little skeptical because we ended up picking items that we did not try in the tasting, but everything ended up being perfect. The sterling affairs coordinator ended up being our wedding coordinator because she had worked at the venue before and the venue coordinator was out giving birth to her child. She did a perfect job on the wedding. She is very kind and very patient with everyone. Definitely go with sterling affairs as the caterer.

I was married May 7, and I can’t begin to say enough good things about my experience with Sterling Affairs. I am a very picky person who pays attention to the details and has a good memory, and while I had great experiences with most of my vendors, I can point out little things that didn’t go quite according to plan. “They were great, but…” With SA however, I can honestly say that I am 100% satisfied, and they’re the only vendor I can say that about. No “but”s.

From start to finish, Shea Johnson was stellar with her service. She is very friendly, and took the time to answer every one of my questions (and I had a whole lot of them). She addressed every one of my ideas, and had some great suggestions of her own…you should definitely trust her opinion! I felt totally confident from the beginning that I had chosen the right caterer. The day of the wedding, the food tasted amazing. I heard compliments all night long, after the wedding, and I myself nearly cleaned my plate. I always hear how the bride usually doesn’t eat very much, but no matter how distracted I might have been I could not put my fork down! The food tasted fresh and the steak was perfectly done…no rubbery food here. It tasted like it had been prepared in a kitchen on-site just for me. Definitely the best food I've ever had at a wedding, and many people have told me the same.

Presentation was lovely…clean and simple, really showcasing the food. The service staff were friendly and attentive, but didn’t bring attention to themselves. They always had a big smile for the bride! The food was served in a timely manner too…my guests didn’t have to wait for anything. As for price, SA was actually more affordable than I thought they would be. At my venue’s open house last year, I was able to sample a few different caterers’ offerings. I assumed SA would be the most expensive b/c they tasted the best and had the best presentation. They were actually NOT the most expensive, and Shea was always mindful of any budget I might have set. A lot of things were included in the menu price that other caterers add on to their total.

If you have the option of choosing Sterling Affairs for your catering, I highly recommend you do so! This aspect of the wedding and of the planning process was by far the one I’m happiest with. My husband and I wish we could go back to SA for dinner one night to have our wedding meal again!

We had more compliments about our food than anything else. The staff was friendly, approachable, flexible and fun. The guests said they had never had better food at a wedding before in their entire lives. The director worked with us to make a drink specially created for our wedding to pass out to guests before the food was served and any requests we made were honored. It even rained on the wedding day and the caterer took care to make sure our stations were set for any weather. If I could give this caterer a score of a 10 I would.

We are somewhat picky food people in that we didn't want to have some of the usual wedding foods such as BBQ, mexican, pasta or finger foods. We had the braised short ribs and chicken imperial. Our guest loved the food and we got the most compliments on the chicken...... people said they could of just gotten seconds of the stuffing. I would recommend sterling and shea for any event. They did a great job and took care of everything.

We were very pleased with Shea and her ability to make our vision a reality. She was open to all of our ideas and went above and beyond to make everything happen. Our only complaint is that we have a guest who is unable to swallow solid foods due to cancer. We specifically ordered and paid separately for a bowl of creamy soup for him. I provided his name and table number to ensure that he would get his soup but found out after the event that he never got it and, therefore, was unable to eat during our event. Disappointing.

Their staff was very sweet to my husband and I always making sure we had the food we wanted and would never let us go get our own food ;) Read less

Shea was great to work with and the event manager did a wonderful job. They are very flexible and timely in responding to issue or changes. The food was fantastic and I had many excellent comments on how great it tasted. The kids meals went over very well and all the servers were very helpful to make sure everyone got what they wanted.

We had a family style dinner (platter service) in our contract, but the dinner was served plated instead. We planned our table layouts and centerpieces around the family style dinner. This also made serving dinner slower than planned. Overall it was not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to know that they could not accommodate a family style dinner ahead of time for planning purposes. We have had a completely positive experience working with Sterling Affairs. Shae was wonderful as far as communication prior to the event, and the food was wonderful.

Sterling Affairs provided the excellent quality linens, china, glasses, etc. for my wedding. The staff at the receptions was abundant and quick. I was very pleased with every aspect of their service. The food was wonderful, and they did a fantastic job of helping me narrow down my choices. I was so pleased with all of they advice I took from them. My only tiniest complaint would be with their flexibility. I was an out of town bride, and they only offer planning meetings and taste testing at limited times during the week. Because of my work schedule (your typical M-F job), it was impossible for me to meet with them face to face without taking vacation from work. Also, they do not offer taste testing before you've made your food decisions, only after. I didn't like that at all, but because I was unable to make a taste testing at all, it didn't matter for me. Regardless, they spent a lot of time helping me make my decisions, and I loved all of the food I chose.

I was pleased with the service provided by Sterling Affairs. I had worked with Shea up until the wedding and she was great to work with. She was helpful at the tasting and the meeting before the wedding. She was great. The quality of the food was good. The only downfall was that some guests reported that the food had run out and they were waiting for some time for the food to be replenished. Also I had ordered children's plates for the kids and guests were not aware of that and many children were eating the adult plates because the children's food was not on display and was not offered. Overall, I was very pleased with the catering and would recommend them to others.

Sterling Affairs put together a great menu for our wedding reception. The only thing I wish could have been different was the tasting meeting. You only get to pick two entrees and two sides or appetizers to try. We weren’t real happy with a lot of what we tasted so it was tough picking a full menu sort of blindly. But Tedi and Emily helped us make some good choices and it all worked out in the end. People are still telling us how great the food was.

Let me start by saying that the food was incredible! Shea was my main point of contact and was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. The agreement (and our conversations) stated that she would be there on the day of the wedding to oversee everything. I never saw her. I was told by the coordinator that she stopped by for a few minutes before the ceremony to make sure everything was set up. That was a little disappointing. Lori, the day of coordinator through Sterling, was very friendly, but didn't seem organized or to have many answers about how things would work on the day of. Also, there was supposed to be a walk through at the facility 30 days prior to the wedding with Shea and the day of coordinator. Shea showed for this, but no coordinator so I had to go over all of the logistics a second and third time. Finally, they were supposed to clean up before they left. I was told they would even gather our linens for us so we could easily grab them to return to the rental company. When we went back to the facility the next day to pick up our things, we found the place to be a mess and none of our stuff was gathered...So we cleaned up ourselves. The staff on the day of were wonderful and very attentive! Overall they were very flexible and very friendly. I would highly recommend their catering.

Sterling Affairs was very professional with the handling of their clients from beginning to end. Their new office is well set up to make the client feel comfortable while in a tasting. Their presentation is one to envy, and the quality of their cooking is memorable. Their quality and services are top-notch, my only complaints are that while the food served at my reception was beyond delicious, it was not what I had asked for in our final draft; and they allow their employees to keep/or throw away, the very expensive food you paid for your friends and family to enjoy--they do not allow boxing up the leftovers. Additionally, while their recipes are deliciously good to your taste-buds, the prices are little steep (ranging from $35-$50 per person). If you're not concerned about cost and simply want good food and presentation, I highly recommend Sterling Affairs.

Sterling Affairs was great! The food was wonderful and they went out of their way to create/ make items that were not on their menu to accomodate family taste and desires. Everyone raved about the food, one of the other vendors even blogged about on their personal blog! The the timing was great, the event planner they provided that day was on the ball and things ran so smoothly. I would have liked better feed back and quicker response time though. The contact I had with the company always contacted me back, but sometimes it was a week later and I had already had to make a decision without her input. that was my only concern

I had a sit-down dinner for my wedding. Sterling Affairs prepared some amazing dishes. People still talk about the food.

A couple of negatives: (1) You have to turn in your headcount EARLY. If your guests cancel last minute or don't RSVP in time, you still pay for those meals. We ended paying for a lot of extra meals. (2) We opted for a signature drink. We wanted to taste a few of the drinks during our tasting, but were only given one drink.

The food was absolutely delicious! The setup and presentation were astounding and they were very up front about what they provided. The only complaint I have is that they charge for more than two people attending the tasting. Since you are basically interviewing THEM, I think this is a little absurd. Especially since we had my parents, my then fiance, and myself - not an unusual number or combination of people - and it cost $20. But, it was still worth it.

We did buffet to cut down on costs, but the food was great and kept warm. They set up everything, and it was beautifully laid out. They allowed us to purchase own breakfast pastries, wedding cake, and ice cream cake, and helped serve it.

The wait staff and servers were all professional and great. The tables were set up beautifully. There was an small accident of a dropped salad bowl, but it was quickly cleaned up. We ordered new potatoes as a side and some of them were hard and some were soft, so basically they were cooked inconsistently. Either our guests eat a lot or there wasn't enough food served because most of our guests were still hungry afterwards. We ran about 30 minutes behind schedule because the food took longer than planned to come out. When the table with the bride's parents were served, they didn't serve the fish that they ordered so they wait while everyone else ate. There were just minor timing issues, but overall they did a great job!

Overall we had a fairly pleasent experience with Sterling Affairs. We did not select Sterling Affairs, they were the sole source caterer for our venue. We were very pleased with the food. The food tasted great. The service the day of the wedding was also very good. We had no mishaps and everything was handled very professionally and went smoothly. My one complaint is that they were not very flexible in the planning leading up to the wedding. I live out of town and was forced to take several days off of work leading up to the wedding (with was quite difficult for me to do) in order to get everything planned properly. So they were quite inflexible on several matters. But the quality of food and the day of were both great.

We were very disappointed with the service. We had asked for the wine to be served at the table. There were no wine goblets. Since it was a formal wedding we had also asked that beer be served in glasses. We didn't want to see bottles of beer on the tables and when we saw the photos we noticed that our requests weren't respected. Coffee was not served, which was also one of our requests.

Both the wedding planner and Tedi seem to be in a rush since the first interview!

The food from Sterling was amazing. However, our contact, Lindsay Blackwell, was not very responsive with email and messed up our order several times (always overcharging). I would recommend Sterling catering but with a different contact.

Terribly disappointed with the service. The bar service was terrible. I paid for an extra bar and only one bar was open at a time. They ran out a Miller Lite Beer (when we told Shea that's what we drink). Even the bride couldn't get one!!! The help was sitting in a lounge chair behind the bar at one point (totally unprofessional). The passing of hor'deurves was negligent (I had to ask where they where, and was told they were all gone, then they brought out a tray from the back. A full tray and another tray half full. The help did not come by to the tables at all to see if everything was o.k. or if anyone needed anything. I was told they'd pass around beer and wine to guests, but never saw any quality service.

The food was just ok, nothing super, no guests commented how delicious it was and I was very disappointed. Overall, I was so disgusted because I paid Shea some EXTRA MONEY, SO SHE WOULD SEE TO IT EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT...and it was awful.
