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. A mere 45-minute drive from Chicago, the venue is nestled on a nature preserve, providing an idyllic backdrop for your wedding. In addition, guests from a number of Windy City suburbs can easily access the site. Celebrate your love and commitment to your partner with an event that reflects the two of you for a wedding to remember.
Facilities and Capacity
The Highland Park Country Club offers both indoor and outdoor locations, and checks all the boxes for your wedding and other events featuring a stunning backdrop of a 100 acre nature preserve and floor to ceiling windows. Traditional seated meals of up to 350 guests with a large dance floor or up to 400 guests with no dance floor can fit in the space. The Highland Park Country Club can be converted into many configurations, so the private event venue is also a perfect space for smaller events and weddings, engagement parties, and showers.
Under a new partnership, as of January 2020, between the City of Highland Park and Catering by Michaels, the Highland Park Country Club has been converted to a private event venue.

Offering chef driven gourmet menus, a curated list of florists, photographers, and other vendors, with striking views of a 100 acre nature preserve, this partnership brings a new level of event experience to the North Shore of Chicago. Catering by Michaels will always take the time to listen and understand not just your event vision, but also your personal taste, interests and likes and dislikes, so we can curate the details that capture the unique flavor and style of your event.

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 processSent on 09/21/2020

The best wedding considering there were limitations due to Covid
As my daughter's original wedding plans were not going to happen due to covid and we still wanted a small wedding that felt every bit like a wedding but with few guests, I happen to gratefully come across this venue. The wedding coordinator that I worked with, Tiffany Otis, was the best. As covid changed, so did the guidelines. She helped us with every aspect of creating a beautiful event that made the day even more special. She helped with food decisions, answering any questions we had no matter how big or small, any changes we came back with, etc., etc. She helped us with every detail. And, she was so nice to work with. I really appreciated that tremendously as well. The wedding was gorgeous! The food was delicious! I honestly can look back and say there was not one thing that we could have or would have done differently.Sent on 09/26/2020

From the beginning, the staff at the HPCC was amazing. They were flexible and did their best to accommodate any request we had. The venue was a little on the pricey side, but for everything included (butler passed appetizers, sit-down 4 course dinner service, champagne toast, unlimited wine, open bar, the list goes on...) it was on par with similar venues. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding (or other event!) Izzy, Kristen, and Kelly made the night memorable and beautiful.Sent on 07/14/2013

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!
