Elopements. Destinations. weekend experiences.
We Plot. We Hustle. We Produce.
We love weddings for their natural ability to spark joy, delight and so much emotion. A wedding is one of the most honest and pure experiences a couple can share with their world. Weddings signify togetherness, memories, adventure, magic, and so much love. We love the way they make you feel. The way they make your guests feel and even the way they make us feel.
We design and plan all kinds of weddings from elopements to destinations to weekend experiences that take your breath away.
We don’t discriminate, we encourage our clients to embrace the wonder their story exudes for their big day and everything in between. We strive to craft our clients’ weddings around these stories, their values, their desires to make or break traditions, creating new ones of their own, and most importantly, their love and adoration for each other.
We are not your typical wedding coordinator or planners.
We are experience producers, amorous storytellers, masters of design, and creators of magic. We are passionate about your celebration—developing it, curating it down to the very last detail, and executing it with meticulous precision and grace. We believe design and planning go hand-in-hand and your experience starts at our very first exchange, continuing through the wedding weekend. We feel our abundant dedication, creativity, patience, curiosity, and persistence are just a few of our unique traits that separate us from our community. Aside from the fact that we have a not-so-secret superpower that alleviates stress and overwhelming emotions.
Your wedding should be your best day. We are experts in the process and advocates in ensuring your wedding experience is nothing short of extraordinary. We want you to have your fairytale—and whatever you wanted that reality to look and feel like. Our wedding planning team is devoted to you, your fiancé, and your family.

“Alex and her team at Sterling Engagements are beyond talented. They were able to execute not only my dream wedding but were able to help me with the emotional upheaval with planning a wedding during a trying time. 2020. When I look back at planning a wedding - I believe one requires someone who is creative, resourceful and great at handling stress, uncertainty and emotions. Alex checkboxes all three of these. Yes I knew the colors/vibe I wanted but Alex was able to communicate and share her vision of how she would execute my ideas. She was resourceful in the sense that she understood my top priorities and then worked with my budget. She showed me the more expensive route but also reminded me of how we could keep costs down. She was realistic and practical. Lastly, she was an incredible mediator between my mom and I. She also knew exactly how to deal with my inlaws. She has a gift for being solution oriented and making sure all parties are pleased with the result. 10/10.

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sterling Engagements and their entire team of professional and experienced staff. We were looking for a wedding planner to help us plan and coordinate our big day at Cielo Farms but were unfamiliar with the area and who to turn to for vendors. Luckily, Sterling Engagements took care of everything. It seemed like whenever an issue came up or we needed a reference, they knew exactly who to talk to, which made the introduction/planning coordination seamless. Our planner, Alexandra, always made us feel important and her top priority which helped during the most stressful times of planning and as the wedding day came closer, we did not worry once because we knew Sterling Engagements had it under control.

“Sterling Engagements exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond when it came to planning our fairytale wedding at Malibu Rocky Oaks. From the first time we met with Alex I knew she was more than capable of making my vision become a reality. She put together the most incredible team of vendors for our special day. They were all extremely professional, reliable and made us feel comfortable on the big day. Alex listens to you, learns your taste and style so fast and will make sure that you have all your "must haves" on your wedding day. On the morning of our wedding I was so nervous, but Alex came and picked me up herself, brought me breakfast, and gave me a pep talk on the way to the venue. I will always remember and be thankful for that. The entire Sterling Engagements team was absolutely amazing and a joy to work with! They all played an integral part on the big day, including taking care of our dogs so that we could enjoy being with our friends and family. For anyone looking for a wedding planner, we highly recommend Sterling Engagements to make all your wedding day dreams come true!”

“Where do I start with Alex? And how do I keep it short without missing any details, because she never would... Alex is Amazing! Her motto should be, "If you think it, I can, and will, make it happen!" Keeping the budget in mind of course. There was nothing that we brought to Alex that she wasn't able to do, even when we thought it was nearly impossible. She was able to talk her way through time crunches and bring down prices just so that we could have what we wanted. Everything she touches is exquisite. Alex was always coming up with ideas and they were always relevant to us as a couple and our wedding theme because she took the time to get to know us. She was more than a planner, she was a friend, a confidant and pretty much a 24-hour service. Alex has a nature about her that she will sacrifice herself to make her bride and groom happy and to get a job done beyond expectations. She is the sweetest person and she knows how to talk her way through anything. But not in a manipulative way, just through her savvy business skills, keeping both her vendors and her client's best interest always in mind. We became a big family. Alex covered every detail and then some, our day was 100 times more organized and beautiful than we could have ever imagined it to be. Alex is the best of the best. She works endlessly so that the bride and groom can simply enjoy the wedding planning process and show up the day of and be in the moment. There was nothing we had to do or to worry about; she handled EVERYTHING. From making sure vendors were in place, to getting me iron pills while I was getting dressed. I know I am biased but she also created THE BEST Platinum wedding episode there will ever be! We stretched Alex and challenged her but she handled it with love and grace. We love you Alex, thank you!”

"Sterling Engagements went above and beyond to make our wedding the warm, beautiful and fun day we envisioned. A friend of mine hired Sterling Engagements to plan her wedding, and knowing what a perfect event it was, I decided to give Alexandra a call. Alexandra was great to work with, taking time to get to know us and recommend vendors that suited our taste and style. Alexandra knows how much wedding services should cost, has great relationships with vendors and knows how to creatively do more with less. The value in terms of savings on hard costs that Sterling Engagements brought to our event covered the additional cost of hiring a wedding planner. But, more importantly than that, working with Sterling Engagements allowed us to be guests at our own wedding. All details, timing and coordination on our wedding day was flawlessly handled by Sterling Engagements. Three months after our wedding, friends and family are still telling us ours was one of the best weddings they've ever been to. We're grateful to Alexandra and her team for making our wedding even better than we imagined it could be."

" After six or so months of trying to plan our wedding on my own, I was completely overwhelmed. Hiring Sterling Engagements was the best wedding planning decision we ended up making. While I had chosen and reserved our dream venue, wedding dress, and had a general theme in mind, it was Alex of Sterling Engagements that took my jumble of ideas and lovingly crafted them into the wedding of our dreams. She set us up with top notch vendors that understood our vis ion. She saved us money, drafted our wedding budget (and stuck to it!), had an amazing team that executed the day of perfectly, and was generous with her time, concepts, and advice. Alex is a dedicated professional with the best connections, impeccable taste, and a knack for making you feel like a friend. The hours I spent with her discussing design concepts over cups of tea were some of the most enjoyable in the entire wedding planning process. I highly recommend Sterling Engagements. Alex and her team ensured that my husband and I were worry free on the big day and that our guests experienced an event they will never forget."

“I am such a type A person and I was looking for a wedding planner who would pay attention to detail and help me make our vision come to life. We reached out to and interviewed a few other high profile planners but as soon as we interviewed Alex, we knew that she was the right planner for us. She was very professional, friendly and her experience speaks for itself. It was clear that she was well qualified and that she had the expertise and knowledge necessary for planning high production weddings. Alex turned out to be a dream come true! She is incredibly creative and has great organic ideas. She is also great at helping you to develop your own ideas. I hear horror stories from friends about their experiences with wedding planners and the whole wedding planning process. With Alex, I knew that there would never be any horror stories to tell. Throughout the whole process, she handled everything like a true professional. She was so organized and well equipped to handle any potential crisis situation with poise and grace. She made things happen that I didn't think could happen. It was the feeling of knowing that "Alex would take care of it" that made the planning process enjoyable and stress-free for me. She has the greatest connections with the best vendors too! I felt like we had "the Dream Team" for our wedding thanks to the business relationships she has developed with top notch vendors over the years. Her recommendations and referrals were always awesome! Our wedding was everything I wanted a more. I knew we would have a nice wedding and I expected it to be nice. But even with my very high expectations, the way everything came together was totally beyond my wildest dream. It was really a fairytale/dream wedding. We were so pleased with how everything turned out. Our guests still talk about our wedding to this day and my husband always says it was so fun that he wishes we could do it again. It was truly one of the best days of our lives! During this process, Alex became more than our wedding planner but she became our friend. We still keep in touch to this day and I was a little sad when the planning was all over because I knew I would miss speaking with her so much. I am very picky and selective about who I recommend to friends but I would refer Alex and the Sterling team to friends and family in a heartbeat. Her passion for her work and her love for her clients is simply unparalleled. “

" I always thought that I wanted to have a wedding planner, even with all of my crazy organization, and it turns out this was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process! Alex was referred to us by our venue, and after meeting her, I knew I did not need to interview any other planners- she was the one! She immediately understood our likes and taste, and was always was honest with my husband and I, which was so important and really made us feel good when we made our decisions. Her vendor referrals were fantastic, as we were beyond thrilled with each of them. From music to photography to wedding cake- they were all top notch and who knows if we would have been able to find them without Alex. As our wedding approached and the stress level increased, Alex was there to meet, answer questions via phone and send e-mails to us anytime, day or night. No question went unanswered and no detail went undecided. When our wedding day came, I was cool and calm, as Alex had worked with us to make sure all the plans were set. Our wedding day was simply amazing- from the first look to the last dance- we could not have asked for a more fantastic day. Our guests have constantly said that our wedding was the best they had ever been to, and it wouldn't have been possible without Alex and Sterling Engagements!"
