The Board of Directors

Chase Nobis

Executive Director 

Chase started working for Complete Music as a DJ in the early 90’s and loved it so much he bought the company!  After starting with just two other DJ’s working for him, he grew Complete Weddings + Events to over 50 employees and added Photography, Videography, Photo Booth and Up-lighting departments.  Today, Complete Weddings and Events does between 600 and 700 events every year.

Chase attributes his success to his awesome staff, but also the awesome network of vendors that refer Complete to brides.  With this networking idea in mind, Chase started the West-Michigan Wedding Association with the help of several other wedding professionals over 15 years ago.  The WMWA grew to over 100 members and evolved into two of the most popular bridal shows in West-Michigan.  Complete Weddings + Events flourished with referrals and connections with the brides.

In 2009, Chase organized a group of leading wedding professionals in Lansing and launched the Lansing Bridal Association.  This group of dedicated wedding professionals have helped make the LBA the leading bridal website and bridal shows in the Lansing area. 

“When you help other’s reach the right brides, the referrals come back 10 fold!  Good things come, when you do good things” – Chase Nobis.
