    Priceless memories!

    We used Distinctive for our bar service for our wedding! They did a fantastic job! They were flexible with their options, and their drink packages can not be beat! People could not believe it was unlimited for the price we paid! The bartenders were awesome (did not catch their names) but anytime the groom and I went up they always made it a priority to serve us! So happy we picked them!

    Worked with Distinctive Catering on New Year's Eve for a wedding at Butternut Event Centre by Lakeshore Events in Holland. They were very professional, the guests loved the food and they left my catering kitchen spotless. Additionally, they provided meals for my staff, the photographer and DJ ~ Delicious. Well done! Distinctive Catering is now one of our preferred caterers!
