Book with Distinctive Catering...you won't be disappointed.
The team at Distinctive Catering was so easy to work with. Trying to plan a wedding during a pandemic was nerve wracking to say the least. We were lucky it was during a time when things opened up a bit. Through all of it though Lindsay was a true professional . She answered all of our hundreds of questions in a very timely manner.Sent on 11/17/2020
The staff who was at our wedding was so nice!! We had the pig roast and added roasted chicken. During the months since we keep getting messages from our guests saying it was the best food they've had at a wedding. We had the option of taking all the leftovers home or they will donate to a local homeless shelter. We asked if we could have half and donate half and they were very accommodating. At several points during the night they even asked us if they could get us anything; they really went above and beyond.

So many compliments on our bar!
We used Distinctive for our bar service. Madeline from sales was extremely responsive. Reasonably priced for open bar. Service was great, bartenders were friendly. Tip jars were requested not to be out so our guests didn't feel obligated to tip, and we would tip ourselves. They were out. Our guests didn't seem to care and this is a common practice in our area. By the time I realized it, I figured it didn't matter. We paid for glassware through dinner. Our venue required plastic after dinner. We were the first to be served dinner. The bartender came and asked us for our drink orders (so thoughtful and appreciated), but she gave us plastic. So really glassware was only though cocktail hour. Not a huge deal, but I assumed we would be served glassware until dinner was over and dancing started. All in all nothing major, great service, and I'd hire again.Sent on 11/04/2019
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!
Have had several great encounters with Brann's. They do a wonderful job. Greg Bugbee Owner- Bugbee's DJ Plus
