Amazing service, food and staff!
"I couldn't be any happier with how our wedding went. Somehow, Annette was able to know what I wanted when I couldn't even explain it myself! Trust her because she will take you from start to finish and you will be so happy! All of my guests raved about the food. Staff are so kind and professional and didn't miss a beat!"

Best Catering in Town!
"Annette and her staff went above and beyond to give us the wedding we have always dreamt of. 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."
