The staff at Distinctive, especially Norma Freesmeier and Bill Cabell, were so wonderful to work with as we planned our daughter's wedding. Despite constantly shifting weather forecasts, they were available to advise and make changes that helped to make our daughter's day so very beautiful. Distinctive worked with our outdoor venue to ensure our guests would be surrounded by warmth and beauty on a particularly windy and cold day. We will definitely be delighted to work with Distinctive Event Rentals again for any upcoming events!

We had to rent everything for our wedding day due to holding our wedding on a farm. Distinctive made this process so easy and offered such a wide variety of items for us to choose from. The tent was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for better service.

My husband and I are both extremely happy with Distinctive Event Rentals! We were planning things ourselves - needless to say, we were overwhelmed but Norma helped us every step of the way. Honestly, we couldn't have done it without her! She offered insights into the planning process, logistics, suggestions, common sense info, etc. She was a wealth of information and we attribute everything coming together so well to her guidance. She absolutely cares about her clients and we are so thankful she helped us!! We also met Bill, the owner, on one of our visits to the office and you can tell that he genuinely cares about his company and making customers happy. We happily recommend Distinctive Event Rentals to anyone because of their above and beyond customer service, attention to detail, and high quality rental products. Everything looked absolutely beautiful on our day! Thank you Distinctive!!

I recently had to plan a rehearsal dinner for my son. A friend recommended I call Distinctive Event Rentals for the items I needed. I made an appointment and was helped by Norma. Norma was wonderful. She was such a big help with ideas and suggestions. I was very impressed with the quality and selection at Distinctive. Even though the colors we had to use were unusual, they had everything we needed available. Norma even helped with table decoration suggestions. We chose a rustic lantern. Everything was beautiful. I was so pleased. The planner for the venue took photos of our dinner to use in their advertising packet. Distinctive made everything so easy. Pickup and return was a breeze and their prices were so reasonable. I had never thought to use a rental company before. I will use Distinctive again and I will definitely recommend them to others.

Distinctive Event Rentals provided the tent, tables, chairs, bars, and all of the catering rentals for my reception, and everything was wonderful!! From the start, Laura was so great to work with - she was helpful in answering my questions, patient as I changed my mind probably more times than could be counted, and always positive and optimistic about the weather as I worried about my outdoor reception. The week of, as the forecast called off and on for storms, she was a huge help in guiding us to the best decisions with cancellations. When the set up guys came the day before, they were flexible and kind as we made a few small adjustments to where the tent would be set up. It did in fact downpour at our reception, but we had the time of our lives, and the tent was PERFECT for protecting us from the elements! When the crew came to break down, the yard was a disaster with ankle-deep mud, but I never heard one peep of a complaint from them - they instead told me how happy they were that we had a great time despite the weather. Their positive attitudes, given the task ahead of them (hours of break down in the mud), were really and truly appreciated. Overall, we were thrilled with everything about Distinctive. Thanks again for being such a big part of our wedding day and helping everything come together so well!!

We cannot believe how satisfied we are with Distinctive Event Rentals. We rented the scuba chair covers for our wedding at CNU and they really made the reception ballroom look beautiful and modern along with the lighting. Our point of contact at Distinctive was Alison McPherson and she by far made our experience with Distinctive painless. She was very professional, timely, and pleasant to speak with via email and phone. Their operations were extremely flexible for our wedding time frame, as well. We made adjustments to our contract numerous times (due to the change in the amount of guests coming to the wedding) and we did not encounter any issues asking for those changes. To top it off, we did not have to be present at CNU for the crew to drop off or pick up our rental equipment, which made scheduling around the wedding easier. We will absolutely recommend Distinctive Event Rentals to anyone who is having a wedding in the Williamsburg-Norfolk area.

Distinctive Event Rentals was top notch from the awesome event specialist Laura, to the ground crew and everyone in between! As a mother of the bride who had to plan this event many miles from home they were extremely helpful to both myself and my daughter! They were always flexible with work schedules, helpful in making suggestions and keeping cost in line with the event, they even took the time to meet me and my daughter at the venue! The ground crews were equally as impressive, timely, professional and set my mind at ease. I highly recommend this company to anyone planning an event! I do not often take the time to write reviews, but they deserve high praise from helping to make my daughter's wedding a big success!!!
