Chloe and Hiro were married in a small private ceremony, but still wanted a great party to celebrate their wedding. Enter LOLA Event Productions who helped to create a stellar Santa Barbara vineyard-inspired wedding right in the South Loop at the fab Chicago Illuminating Company.

Think eclectic and lush florals, colorful and rich decor, a delish dessert table,a family-style meal, and 1000 paper cranes danced in the air above the dance floor — a symbol of good luck in the groom’s Japanese culture. Don't miss the hilarious dancing shots and donut truck!
