Proceed with caution on hiring this vendor for your event.
With just a few months to go until our wedding, my fiancé and I had to reach out with some questions that needed to be resolved before invitations were printed, and Julie (owner) beca...
me particularly hard to reach and was not at all helpful or interested in dealing with us. Just a month later in early May, she reached out via email to inform us that she "merged" with a local caterer, and that we would need to sign a new contract with them. As we began to do a little digging, we found out that Sterling had actually "merged" with this new company several months prior to us receiving this email, and other brides and events had been informed months before we were about these changes. The details of the "merger" are particularly sketchy, and we have been given no answers to our many questions. After several email exchanges with no info provided to us, we asked Julie for the return of our deposit so that we could move on from this and find a caterer of our own choosing (and on our approved vendor list from our venue), she stopped responding and we are still left with no response at all from her from her a few weeks later.
The way this situation was handled has been completely unprofessional and shady, and I do not wish this frustration or anxiety on any bride, or anyone planning a special event.
If you're looking to work with a catering company that will be organized, up-front, professional, and honest, Julie and Sterling Caterers are not your go-to. There are plenty of other Harford County catering options that are just as willing to work with your budget, serve great food, and will not sketch out on you a few months shy of your wedding.
