2021 Testimonials


Distinctive Catering was so easy to work with for our big day even through multiple times of postponing our event due to the pandemic. Lindsey at Distinctive answered any questions we had quickly which made the entire planning process so much smoother. The food that we had on the day of was great and we had multiple guests tell us they also thought the food was great. We had went to one of their tastings in 2019 and that really helped us narrow down our meal choices. Overall a great catering company to work with and happy we chose them for our big day!


My wife and I are soooo glad we choose them for the dinner service at our wedding this summer! Good prices and everything was so delicious. The staff was very friendly and helped pack up the leftovers which fed our family for days after!

2020 Testimonials


They did an amazing job! We literally planned an entire wedding in a month and a half and Lindsay was so patient and willing to go back and forth with us to make sure we got everything we wanted. When I told my mom we were doing the chicken pot pie she wrinkled her nose, then after the wedding she called saying she had to eat her words because she (and everyone else) LOVED it!


Ashley Bentley-Lead, Alisa, Jada, Elizabeth, Mike-Cook, and Andrew Keaton-Cook were OUTSTANDING! It was a very warm day and that added to the already COVID situation we are going through right now made for the potential of not such a great experience. BUT, your employees did not act as if either the COVID or warm/humid day were effecting their performance. They were all extremely friendly, went above and beyond to adjust to the conditions of the day, were some of the hardest working people I have ever seen, were respectful of each other and all the guests, were flexible with some last minute changes without any hesitations, worked extremely well together. I think Ashley deserves a huge praise because I believe that she was respected by the others, and yet did her job as one of the others. This is a huge thing when the “in charge” person is working alongside of and just as hard as those she is leading. Kudos to her!!! Overall, this was a great day made easier and greater by the staff that was with us from Distinctive Catering. Your employees have represented themselves and you well!!!

Silent Observer, Waddell Center

I just wanted to give you a huge compliment for providing such a wonderful meal today for our Summit on Safety event. Everyone raved about the food and your facility. It was the perfect venue for this event. I will be sure to use you again. Thank you so much. It was perfect!


The venue was absolutely beautiful and made our wedding vision truly come to life. The venue comes with a fair bit of decoration which reduced the amount of decoration and rentals that we were required to provide. The prices were extremely reasonable for all rentals (tables, chairs, linens, flatware, ect.) included a great menu selection and a great bar package. The staff was helpful, friendly, and provided wonderful customer service. We received so many compliments on the food as well as the overall venue. We are so happy we decided to go with the Waddell Center for our Reception Venue – we could not have been happier with how our reception went!

2018 Testimonials


My husband and I were looking for a venue with an urban/industrial feel with exposed bricks and beams. Waddell Center delivered just that at a reasonable prices compared to other options in the area. They also redid and updated the entire interior of the venue after I booked and it looked amazing for the wedding day! In additional to being a nice location, the coordinator, Sarah, and any other staff I worked with were great. Very quick responses and accommodating to any requests or questions I had. The only hiccup was that when we came the day before to decorate, the tables were set up differently than what we discussed. However, the staff member that was there immediately fixed the problems and got us what we needed, which was helpful. Also, we had a great experience with the food and bar through Distinctive Catering. The food was great and we had multiple guests come up and tell us it was one of the best wedding food and bar service they ever had. All in all, we are so happy we booked with Waddell Center. They made everything easy and our reception was beautiful and a blast.
