Sterling Gardens is the perfect place for any wedding. Sal and Jay are both such a pleasure to work with. Very professional, accommodating, kind and generous. The garden area for the ceremony is beautiful and the ballroom is elegant. My husband and I are still getting tons of compliments on the venue choice and food. The food is absolutely wonderful and their different packages made it very affordable for our budget and we got a lot of food for the money. Our wedding was completely perfect and a large part of that was because of Sterling Gardens!

This was not a wedding , we had a 65th Church Anniversary Banquet. I have planned many affairs but I must say the owner, his son and staff was the best I have ever dealt with. They were very courteous and professional making sure all of our request was fulfilled. I most certainly would recommend and use this venue again. Job well done Sal and Jay.

Sterling Gardens was the perfect place for my ceremony & reception! Jay was excellent to work with and a true professional! Very responsive and attentive to my needs as the bride and planner. I was able to make special requests for food and drinks which made my reception extra special and more of a reflection of us as a couple. The guests loved the food and how beautiful the venue was. We had our ceremony out in the garden and it was the perfect. I would definitely recommend this venue to all brides.

Right from the start, it was a pleasure working with the managers and staff. Venue was beautiful, FOOD WAS AMAZING, staff was well trained and professional. Changed timetable on usual hours, gave personalized advise, adjusted menu, include a veggie meal for anyone who wished it. Coctail hour was unbelievable. Some of our guests thought that was the meal! Some of our guests had dietary conditions that we did not know about, and at table asked staff to consult with chief about what they could have and everyone was able to enjoy their meal without worries. Ran smoothly from beginning to end. SEVERAL people told us it was the BEST wedding they had ever been too. Custom wedding cake was included, and I gave them a picture of the one I wanted. It looked perfect, and tasted wonderful! Worth every penny for great memories that will last a lifetime.

This place was a bride's best friend. I live in North Jersey, a very expensive area to plan a wedding. Lucky for me, my family's church was located in Central Jersey. I went back to my home town and stumbled upon Sterling Gardens. It used to be something else and wasn't any place that I had intended on looking at, but figured what the heck. I fell in love almost instantly. The renovations by these owners were fantastic. The interior fit my style to a T, which was simple modern elegance. I felt like I was walking into my favorite Italian restaurant instead of some over the top banquet place (I started describing many of the others as looking like easter eggs that just exploded). The colors were all neutral (browns, tans and blacks), so they worked with my colors perfectly!

Once I decided to go with them, things just kept getting better. I was on a very tight budget and they worked with me throughout. Made it less stressful, even when there were times when I wanted to cancel the whole thing (which if you haven't yet, at some point you will when the totals start coming in).

When it came to the actual event, who needs a wedding planner!?! I dropped off all my favors and centerpiece parts on Friday. They were there to get everything and go through my instructions. I was prepared to stay and put the centerpieces together (I did empty wine bottles with my own label and then spider mums in them), the bottles and the flowers were separate at the time. They said just do one so we know what you want and we will take it from there. They added water and the flowers to all the bottles and set everything up even better than I had envisioned. On Saturday, the wedding day, they were there at my beck and call. We had one of the owners and a maitre d' available to us the whole night. The food was amazing and we have received nothing but compliments.

Needless to say could not ask for more...at the price or any price for that matter!
