Amazing service, food and staff!


"Annette and her team bent over backwards to ensure that our day was a success!  My family was extremely particular about how they wanted the bar service to happen and Annette went through extensive efforts to meet every demand.  She was patient, kind, and a pleasure to work with.  Thanks to Annette our wedding day was seamless!  We did not have a single thing to worry about as Annette and our coordinator worked together perfectly.  We absolutely give Annette and her team the highest recommendation possible and would happy to tell anyone about their phenomenal service!"

Best Catering in Town!


"Annette and her staff went above and beyond to give us the wedding we have always dreamt off. From the food being 10/10, to all of their help planning a backyard barn wedding and making the process that much easier on us. All of my guests are still talking about how delicious the food was months later. My husband and I will always recommend Distinctive Catering."
