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!"

"If you are thinking about booking Distinctive
Catering for your wedding, all I can say is DO IT!! We had less than 3 months until our wedding and came across Annette's company. Annette responded quickly and got right to work with us. Her menu items were extensive and she was more than helpful to customizing the right menu for our day. Annette was absolutely AMAZING throughout the whole process, which for us was only 3 months! She was not only helpful with catering but other wedding pointers too. The day of, she treated us and our guests like family; even going to
the extreme of making sure our dog was fed. She and her team went above and beyond the whole day to make sure our day was perfect.
