HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Hello! My name is Corey. I believe each event is unique and requires special attention. As a wedding professional I will take time to understand your vision and strategically make your dream a reality. 

I take pride in my ability to stay ahead of the curve in this fast paced industry, emerging as a production leader in the Chicago social events & wedding scene.

Hi! I'm Chris.

I am a jack of all trades and a master of ceremonies!
My diverse background, creativity, travels, and love of humanity
have led me to a wonderful moment in my life where I can honestly say that I am living my dream.
What’s more fun than being married to your best friend, being a dad to twin boys + 1,
AND bringing joy to the people around me...as a job?
Friends, not much.

When it comes to our clients’ events, I pride myself in bringing a certain level
of class. How I dress, how I speak, and how I conduct myself
are important to me as I not only represent Highland, but you as well.
I always treat others with respect and kindness. Punctuality, attention to detail, and efficiency
are all qualities I value. I am the entertainer and event producer that understands
it’s not about me. It’s about my clients and their vision.

Marriage is extremely important to me and It shows in my work. I'm like the bottle you throw at a ship before it sets off on it's maiden voyage. I do my best to set your marriage on the right course by christening it with an exciting celebration filled with memories that will last a lifetime.


This is what, I believe, makes me and Highland a great fit for anyone.

Be it a wedding reception, a corporate function, or a private party,
I am the person who can handle the details so you can just relax and enjoy.
Talking with coordinators, venues, and vendors on your behalf
is just a part of what I love doing for you.


Finally, surrounding myself with like-minded individuals (like Corey) is extremely important to me.
We have created a network of people and vendors that we trust.
When you hire us you will also have access to that network and our knowledge of the industry as a whole.


I really believe in what I do. It has led me to entertaining for professional sports teams, high profile individuals, corporate clients like Redkin, and running stages for festivals. My creative work has also led me to be a featured artist for a Paris based software company specializing in projection mapping.


I genuinely care about you, your family, and your friends.
I also enjoy long walks on the beach, quiet evenings at home, a hot cup of coffee, and chill house music.
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to visit and read this!
It means a lot to me.
I hope to talk with you soon.

Cheers!
-Chris
