  • 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!

    Christine, we are thrilled you had such a fantastic experience. Laura is amazing and we are so fortunate to have her. We try to accommodate and communicate with our customers at all times. Thank you for sharing and best wishes.

  • 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. I would definitely use them again for another event in the future!

    Rachel, we appreciate your feedback. We know how many details go into a special day and we want our customers to know we will try to go above and beyond to deliver on that. We strive to excellence at every turn. Best wishes

  • 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!

    Thank you Anna, we are so happy you were pleased. It sounds like the day came together magically. We love our rustic rentals and strive to offer the perfect items to compliment our customers visions. Warm wishes for a fantastic future

  • I cannot tell you how helpful Norma Freesmeier and Distinctive Rentals were to us for our daughters wedding. They offered advice, made suggestions, kept us going on a path we had given them as our ultimate goal. It is very easy to get distracted and confused as you continue to see postings of weddings on the internet. Norma helped us keep our design and our objectives in mind with each choice. She was so patient as we made so many revisions to the original selections. Finally, that black and white dance floor is gorgeous! Perfect for dancing under the stars! Thank you so much for all your help!!!

  • 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 got married in his parents' backyard so we had the daunting task of transforming a residential property into a wedding venue fit to accommodate 100 guests. When I met with Norma Freesmeier for the first time, I was a very overwhelmed bride but she quickly set me at ease! She took the concepts I had envisioned and was able to decisively bring them to fruition. Through Distinctive Event Rental's expansive inventory we were able outfit our entire reception and stay within budget. Norma remained focused, excited and accessible during the entire process leading up to the wedding. My husband and I are very appreciative of the input she provided in regard to decor, staging logistics and even day-of scheduling. The delivery and set-up/break-down staff were incredibly sweet and efficient. Months later, our guests continue to rave about our outdoor white-top tent reception! Having worked in the industry for a long time, Norma has working relationships with area caterers, DJ... Read more

  • 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.

  • We were extremely pleased with every aspect of our contact and dealings with Distinctive Event Rentals. From our first meeting with them to the day they came to tear down our rentals, we could not have asked for a better experience. The employees that we dealt with are a huge benefit to the company that they represent.

    Becke we truly appreciate your kind words. We have a great team at Distinctive Event Rentals and each person is a valuable part of delivering the highest level of service we can.

  • Great to work with - they had tons of options on chairs, tents, dance floors, linens, and tables - everything that we needed was available in many styles so that we could choose the look that would best complete our special day. They arrived to set up tents and chairs for our backyard two days early so that we could focus on decorating in the remaining time. They were also great to work with through email and over the phone - they answered all of our questions concerning the differences in items, and made changes to our list as we decided. Highly recommend!
