Chelsea is much more than our office manager and you'll learn that from your first conversation with her.

She works directly with all of our wedding and event clients. But that doesn't say enough about her process - from general inquiries, online planning questions, scheduling appointments, and much more - Chelsea is the a relationship manager that organizes our clients and our staff.

sivon.pichoto

Sivon Pichoto has been editing videos for Hurricane Productions since June 2018. She is naturally creative and has worked in graphic design most of her life, so learning video was an easy leap.

benny.klein

As a host, Benny works the crowd unlike most emcees. He stays out on the dance floor with your crowd and is an active entertainer throughout the night. In our opinion, Benny is the most interactive entertainer on staff.
