Care at Sterling Event Design offered me help when she found out I was getting married and was having trouble picking a DJ. She recommended a few to interview and gave suggestions as to what to look out for and how to choose our perfect DJ. We ended up going with one of her suggestions and were very pleased with the outcome. Any time I had a question, Care was there with helpful hints and suggestions. Planning a wedding is difficult because most likely you have never planned a wedding before and there are so many choices and options. Care is a valuable asset to anyone planning a wedding as she has tons of creative ideas, knows how to negotiate costs, and is always very responsive to calls and emails. I highly recommend Sterling Event Design to anyone planning a wedding!

Care and her team were nothing short of amazing from the day we had our first meeting until we left the venue after our wedding day. I honestly cannot imagine planning a wedding with our Care; she was professional, kind, funny, and a great advisor. She listened to what Tim and I wanted for our wedding and then took it a step further. The 14 months of planning flew by without a hitch and everything was flawless on the day of. She was always open with communication no matter how large or small the question. Care assembled a great group of vendors for our wedding which fit into our budget and the end result was perfect. Our “modern southwest” wedding was just what we had envisioned from the start. If you are considering a planner, look no further than Care with Sterling Weddings and Events.

Working with Care and Sterling Wedding Design was a last minute decision for one, but one that I am so happy that I made. I literally had nothing to worry about for my entire wedding day. Care and her team took care of everything and made me feel extra special on my special day. I was so happy each and every time I got a call or email from Care during the planning process because I loved knowing that she was in charge of everything and I knew that if she was taking care of it, it would be handled. I would recommend Sterling Weddings to anyone who is hoping to have a day with no problems and have everything handled and well done. Thank you to Care for making my wedding even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. You made my visions a reality!

We were recommended to Care Schmidt by my work because we had done some short videos with her, and I am so glad we found her! I got in contact with her over a year before our wedding, and I chose to do the "part-time" option for her, since I didn't need someone to hold my hand every step of the way, just someone who I could call with any questions I had.

She was always willing to meet whenever I was uneasy about something, and always gave me a call or email back regarding any questions I had. She is a busy woman, and I really appreciate all the small details that I had no clue about that she helped me out with...like who is "presenting" the couple on the invitations, where to go to get various things, and when dress shops weren't telling me the whole truth.

On the wedding day, the groom was very nervous about how things would run, and I tried to explain to him that that is why we have Care, but he wouldn't listen. But, he soon found out that she was worth every penny! Anything we had questions about or needed help with, it was done before we could even finish our thought about it. She knows her stuff very well!!! My father was really happy to have her on board so that he could ask her about anything as well throughout the wedding as well as any time before. She made sure that all of our belongings were packed up and ready for us to pick up the next day before she left, which was a very big help in the morning.

I was so happy with Care's service and calm attitude about everything, it made us feel very well taken care of! I would recommend her to anyone I know that is getting married, or even just throwing a big party! Totally worth it!

Care Schmidt, owner of Sterling Event Design, is the ultimate in a Wedding Planner. We had a destination wedding in Phoenix to plan, with the bride and groom in Seattle, the groom's parents in London, England and the bride's parents in Tucson, AZ. None of us had a clue regarding Phoenix wedding vendors and resources. Choosing Care Schmidt and her associates was all we needed to do, since she had extensive experience and contacts in Phoenix. All vendors she introduced to us were very professional and well-known in the area. Care outlined the choices available in each category and we made the decision.
She was especially good in introducing us to on-line spreadsheets for timeline planning and budgeting. Care acted as an intermediary with the bride, groom and parents, so that decisions could be made amicably. She helped schedule items, so we could split the responsibilities among us and she made sure everyone met their due dates with her organized, but diplomatic manner.
Of course, the wedding was wonderful, no glitches were encountered, all was so seamless that all of us really enjoyed ourselves without worry. An important reason we chose Care was that she has a solid staff supporting her, so that we were not depending on only one person to coordinate such an important event. She was also thought very highly of by every one of the vendors we used. Especially important to our affair, was that there were unique dietary and cultural issues that needed to be addressed. Her suggestion of a venue which could handle these special needs was on the mark. I would recommend her to a friend without hesitation.

My number one piece of advice for any bride/groom: get a planner. But not just any old planner, you want Sterling Wedding and Events! We hired Care to help us with planning (partial planning package) and she was a life saver! She was incredibly helpful in the planning stages of the event: she had great suggestions for vendors, good tips for saving money (and she saved us a lot!), and would always respond to questions quickly. I knew that if I had a question, no matter how big or small, Care would reply to me immediately and with great insight!

In the days leading up to our wedding, Care was on the ball: sending reminders, finishing up last minute details, and making sure everyone was organized. She sent out detailed timelines to all our vendors, bridal party members, and immediate family so everyone was on the same page. (Several of my recently married friends marveled at that timeline!) On the day of our wedding, Care was so calm, even though we were running late, and everyone who interacted with her (family, friends, vendors) had fantastic things to say about her! Perhaps the best endorsement I could give her is that I had complete confidence in her abilities to make the wedding day move smoothly. I was not stressed at all about the details of the big day because I knew if there was a problem, Care would handle it…and her judgment is impeccable so I knew she would solve it appropriately! If you are looking for someone organized, knowledgeable, professional, and connected, she is your gal! Thanks Care and the Sterling Wedding & Events Team for making our wedding day perfect!

Care at Sterling Events was phenomenal. I hired her over a year out from my wedding as a partial planner. She was there every step of the way. She would let me know when I needed to have things done and was very responsive to any needs I had. As the day got closer she put together all the small details, contacted each one of my vendors, and made sure that everything was in place. The wedding day was a dream come true. Care showed up and made sure everything was in place and. I did not have one ounce of stress and got to completely focus on the moment. I highly recommend Care and her team to anyone looking for a wedding planner. Care is attentive, flexible, and always one step ahead. I am thankful for all that she did for me on my wedding day.

As a bride, I chose to hire Care three months before the wedding because I was overcome with stress. The minute I met her, I knew that she was going to do a great job. She felt more like a friend than a vendor with her flexibility and always knew the right thing to say to calm my nerves. I didn't have to worry about anything.

We absolutely loved Sterling Weddings and Events!! Our wedding was not the easiest and had a ton of moving parts. Care and her crew were there every step of the way, providing valuable insight and made sure all of our ducks were in a row before the big day. We'd have to say that we were most impressed with great attention to detail, and fast, heartfelt responses to all of our questions before the wedding.

On our big day, the staff was there early to ensure that the day we waited our lives for would be perfect, and it really was! Most weddings have glitches, but we can honestly say that we aren't aware of ANY. That is more proof that you can't go wrong with Sterling Wedding and Events.

We received so many compliments during and after the wedding from our guests who were very impressed with the outcome of the coordination and effort put forward by Care and her team.
