About

On WeddingWire since 2009

Highland Park Country Club, one of Chicago's original and historic event venues, is being reimagined as the newest piece of the Catering by Michaels portfolio as a high-end event venue. Both the City of Highland Park and Catering by Michaels are excited to re-introduce this newly renovated space to the Chicago-land area and have it continue to be a place for your celebrations. A mere 45 minute drive from Chicago, the venue is nestled on The Preserve of Highland Park, a 100 acre nature preserve providing a beautiful backdrop for your wedding.

The Highland Park Country Club offers both indoor and outdoor locations, and checks all the boxes for your wedding. Whether you choose to have your ceremony at the beautiful Preserve of Highland Park or admire all of its beauty inside from the floor to ceiling glass windows, this space is perfect no matter what you choose. Traditional seated meals of up to 350 guests with a dance floor or up to 400 guests without a dance floor can fit in the space. The Highland Park Country Club can also be converted into many configurations, making it the perfect space for more intimate events, weddings, engagement parties and showers.

As the exclusive caterer and event management partner, Catering by Michaels brings over 40 years of experience to offer more than just food on a plate. Offering chef driven gourmet menus, event coordination services, elite level of service staff, and a personalized recommendation portfolio of other event vendors, this partnership brings a new level of event experience to the North Shore of Chicago.

Catering by Michaels offers a variety of affordable price points and menu styles to choose from including plated meals, buffets, family style service, chef stations, dessert assortments, late night snacks, and many other culinary options. We are a custom caterer that prides ourselves on innovation and creativity and can offer many different cuisines including kosher, Indian, and other ethnicities. Since no two events are the same, every event we design and cater is truly a one-of-a-kind experience and customized just for you. We pride ourselves on being by your side each step of the way, guiding your wedding for a truly cohesive and enjoyable experience.

Creative, Delicious, Simply the Best!

We've been planning events for over 15 years and had a wonderful experience with designing in the space and working with the team. It was a gorgeous day for our client and the food was the BEST, as always with the team at Catering by Michael's. Thank you to them for allowing us to push the boundaries on our creativity and being flexible on creating a unique experiences for the guests.

Best Night of Our Lives!

Tiffany and the Catering By Michaels team were spectacular throughout the entire wedding planning and execution process. Tiffany acted as a liaison working with all of our vendors, and the team made sure that everything went smoothly the day our wedding. We would recommend this team to anyone looking to hold an event!

Great experience

Had a great experience with our very small, COVID-compliant wedding! The staff on the day of the event was great and Tiffany was really great to work with throughout the planning process

Planning weddings brings me so much joy to see my clients visions come to life and to create lasting memories for all who attend. I love the diversity and different cultural traditions of my couples and work with my couples to make sure their wedding is a reflection of their journey, and love all of the special touches that each wedding brings. My wife and I love to travel and have a lifetime goal to hike every National Park in the United States! Three down - fifty-seven to go!
