    Just what we asked for

    Everything ordered was on time and correct. A few chairs had to be cleaned, but otherwise it was good. Gabrielle was a pleasure to work with.

    This company provided the tent, tables, chairs and the linen for our wedding. When we met with them we were not quite sure what we wanted, but they took their time and walked us through everything. You can not go wrong with hiring this company. They are great!

    The Distinctive Event Rentals team is incredible and their rentals are gorgeous! Distinctive is incredibly responsive during the entire process, will offer advice on anything you need help with and has no problem with you scheduling time to go take a look at their rentals and find the perfect items for your vision! Their team is so friendly and upbeat, and they did an exceptional job for our wedding! I was unbelievably impressed with the quality of their rentals - the farm tables and x-back chairs in particular have a serious wow factor! Highly recommend!

    We held our reception for around 120 guests outdoors and rented a tent and accessories (dance floor, tables, chairs, linens) from Distinctive. Overall, we had a great experience! My now-husband and I planned our Williamsburg wedding from D.C.—Laura was willing to accommodate our schedule and met with us on a Saturday. The process was smooth and Distinctive was able to bring our vision to life, including assisting with some last-minute weather-related changes. Everything was dropped off and picked up without issue.

We wish you and your husband nothing but the best!

    Distinctive Event Rentals was a great company to work with. They arrived first thing in the morning to deliver the chairs and wine barrels we ordered for my daughter's wedding reception. They put the chairs inside of the venue. The chairs were beautiful.

    Distinctive Event Rentals went over and beyond for our wedding! From the first day we started working with Bill & Norma, our experience was so enjoyable. They are incredibly organized, professional and prompt - unlike many of the tent rental companies out there today. Every detail was executed perfectly and not to mention, a few days before our wedding they even took the time to come back out to our site and string additional lights that weren't in our original plan. They take so much pride in what they do and it's refreshing to see that these days. They are such a wonderful group of people. I can assure you that we will be using them again for any event we have in the future! Thank you Distinctive!!!

    We chose Distinctive Event Rentals for the backyard wedding of our Daughter and Son-in-Law and could not be happier! We communicated with Norma Freesmeirer and she handled everything like a pro! The guys who dropped off and picked up all of the tables, chairs, linens and air cooler were all very polite, professional and friendly. I never got the feeling that anyone was doing this because it was a job, but rather that this is their job and they were going to be the best at it! We will definitely use Distinctive Event Rental again if we have the need!!

    Our consultant, Norma, did an awesome job from start to finish - she knows her stock and is very sensitive to budget - she doesn't just push the expensive items unless that's what you want!! She was incredibly patient will all of my MANY change orders - there were quite a few and some were at the very last minute. Our total order was under budget, delivery was right on time, and we were not missing one piece of what we ordered. The dance floor was amazing and worth every penny - the vegetable cart that we used for the cake and desserts was so beautiful - everyone commented on it, even the manager of the venue wanted to know where it came from. I highly recommend these folks.

    Our experience with Distinctive was exceptional. They were always very responsive and very helpful in making decisions about what we needed. Norma was especially helpful to us in planning and choosing the things that were appropriate for our site and function. The set up and break down crew were tremendous. After the wedding you would not even know they had been there. Everyone is friendly and very helpful. It is a well-run and professional organization and we could not have been more pleased with their service.

    Distinctive handled all the rentals for a family event six years ago which is why I called them for a much larger event this time. They could not have been more flexible and accommodating! The linen selection was much larger than I was expecting based on the website but they looked at our daughter's Pinterest and suggested a perfect look. Things kept changing on our end but they took it all in stride. The delivery crew was polite and respectful and did not damage my yard which we had worked on for months. They really have a professional team!

    Distinctive Event Rentals provided tables, chairs, casual furniture and the tent for our daughter's wedding. The tent was gorgeous, especially with the lights after dark. When I looked back at photos on social media, it seems that everyone wanted to pose on a beautiful sofa that was outside. I was so happy with set-up and break-down. I was able to get my full deposit back because of that!

    Norma with Distinctive is AWESOME!! After picking out all of my rentals, she took the time to talk to me about other various wedding details and provided her advice. I felt like she truly cared about my wedding. We rented plates, silverware, glassware, and 2 barrels. They have a great selection! Excellent quality and service.

    DER was a required vendor for our venue, but it's easy to see why...we worked with Laura from DER and she was absolutely fantastic. She met us on a weekend to go over rental details, kept us up to date constantly via email and gave her honest opinions about things (i.e. setting up a rain plan for an outdoor wedding). I would definitely use them again if we needed them for rentals!

    Distinctive was great! When they came to set everything up and take it down they were very professional and efficient. The people in the office were also very accommodating when I changed my rental list a million times and sent me a new invoice almost immediately every time.

    Distinctive Events was so helpful in creating my vision for our wedding day. They we responsive and had a variety of rentals to choose from for our wedding theme. The rustic/burlap theme was easy with their wooden bars and vintage cabinets and carts which completed a beautiful look for us. They worked seamlessly with Jamie Leigh Events to coordinate the setup and take down. The tent was beautiful along with the lights and stage/table setup. Thank you again!
