Before starting Sterling Event Design I was a traveling stage manager, spending months at a time away from home, working on large-scale theatrical productions. Once I got married and had children it was harder and harder to leave home for long periods of time. Either I was missing my children’s milestones because they were at home, or my husband was missing them because the kids were on the road with me. After a particularly rough road trip I decided to stay at home until the kids got a little older. But what would I do for a living?
Fast forward through a few years of odd jobs and stagehand work; I found that I was happy to be doing creative work, but not happy about how hard it was to make ends meet. A chance offer to do a drape job for a decorator who had double-booked turned into Sterling Event Design. There was a niche that needed filling on the Gulf Coast, and we were just the company to do it.
Soon, my theater background came into play and I was able to take on different types of jobs that included lighting, and custom-built pieces for special events. The more oddball the request, the more fun we have making it happen!
Every event we take on is a very important time in someone’s life, so we do our best to pay attention to all the details. Our most amazing events include a unique, custom element that makes it stand out in your guest’s memories. That extra touch of YOU that leaves everyone feeling special to have been invited to share the time together.
