    Indispensable and worthy of all praises

    Hiring Michelle from LOLA Event Productions was hands-down the best decision of my wedding planning journey. I'd never been to a wedding in my life and was apprehensive about planning my own with no benchmarks for what to expect. Michelle was there from Day One, telling me of my options on everything from place card table decor to photo booth placement. Michelle steered my fiance and I through all the planning decisions, always sympathetic and without any judgement. I had a vague idea of what I envisioned my wedding day to be and again Michelle stepped in, took my disjointed ideas and suggested centerpieces and aisle decors that were completely in line with my vision. She also recommended great vendors to us who fit our vision and worked with our budget.

    Then COVID-19 hit and these recommendations became more key as we scrambled to forge a path forward. As a May 2020 bride, we decided in March to reschedule everything to December 2020. I live in London and reshuffling everything two months before the day of from abroad would have been impossible without Michelle. She was our rock amidst this pandemic storm and quickly got in touch with all our vendors, put together a list of potential dates with our vendors' availability and forwarded us any contract amendments needed. Then again, when we decided to pull the plug and cancel the wedding outright in July, Michelle helped us get in touch with all our vendors and organize all the contract cancellation terms in one email for us to digest. I cannot speak highly enough of Michelle; her organizational skills, empathy and creativeness were key assets for my wedding planning and smoothed the entire process down. Thank you Michelle, you've been absolutely wonderful!

    Amazing Chicago Wedding Planner!

    I can’t say enough about how great it was to work with Lori on our surprise July 4th wedding. We had planned to get married in October of this year, but like many other brides and grooms we were forced to reschedule. Waiting till next year to officially tie the knot was not something we wanted to do, so we reached out to Lori to help us plan our small surprise wedding at my family Lakehouse. It was so helpful to have an expert to help navigate the many questions and thoughts we had regarding the rescheduling. Lori was patient with me and answered every question I had and helped me work through some last minute issues that arose the day before our wedding. Having to plan a wedding is a unique experience already but having to rescheduling a wedding during a pandemic is something that no one has had any experience with, but LORI handled it like she had been rescheduling weddings for years. If you are like me and trying to navigate rescheduling your wedding, I highly recommend reaching out to LOLA event pros for assistance with your wedding or event!

Team of LOLA Event Productions

Lori Stephenson

Lori Stephenson

Owner & Principal

It is a beautiful thing when passion and a career come together… That is where my story begins. I started in the wedding and event business 30 years ago when I took my first after-school job in my boyfriend’s father’s tuxedo store. It was love for the wedding business from the very beginning. I attended Parsons School of Design where I worked toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and ultimately decided to bring my creative juices back to the Midwest where I graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin at Madison (Go Badgers!) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Design and a Minor in Business. I paid my way through college designing and making custom bridal gowns and accessories while interning for some of the biggest designers in that business, and was awarded a senior scholarship thesis grant to explore the history and origins of bridal traditions in multiple cultures. My goal from the beginning – to own my own company within the world of weddings and build a team of unstoppable wedding ninjas that manage logistics and design challenges with professionalism, creativity, cat-like reflexes, and that special “LOLA sauce” that clients seeking a FUN and stress-free collaboration seek out and appreciate.

After college, I worked in all aspects of social event planning and personal styling. For me – A successful event is one where your guests feel excited, cherished, and engaged with their hosts and surroundings. My true passion is helping clients plan smart and creative events that say something about them as an individual, couple, business or association and find creative solutions to their individual challenges. Thinking big-picture about every aspect of the look, feel and flow of your event and incorporating small special and meaningful touches unique to your own personal experiences are my signature.

Over the past 15 years, I have managed projects in Chicago for national companies within the wedding space. I have coordinated events that demanded specific results for the involved businesses as well as large social events throughout Chicagoland. I am an editor at large for a national online wedding publication and have spent the bulk of my time and energy building relationships on behalf of my clients that span every aspect of the world of weddings and events. All of the professionals that provide goods and services for LOLA have a proven track record of excellence in product, delivery and customer service.

With my creative background, extensive management experience and many years dedicated to superior customer service, I have learned first hand that the team you build to help you navigate the intricacies of planning any event – no matter how big or small, can make the difference between happy memories and hindsight regrets. I truly hope you will let the LOLA Pro’s and our family of highly qualified creative partners help you create and execute an event that your family, friends, and colleagues will enjoy and cherish always.

In 2019 we celebrate my company’s 13-year anniversary, and my amazing team will have executed over 600 weddings and events for our wonderful clients. What a legacy of love and celebration… and it’s only the beginning! We are a pro-woman and pro-diversity company that passionately believes that ‘Love is Love’ and we are all better together than we can ever be as individuals. A strong sense of integrity and commitment is a part of every professional relationship we cultivate.

Personally, I live in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago with my husband and menagerie of foster failure cats and dogs. As certified SCUBA divers, we spend all our available time traveling the world seeking out new adventures under the sea and in beach bars sipping fruity drinks. I foster bottle baby kittens for a few local rescues so if you are in the market for a kitten I can help with that as well! I’m passionate about paying my good fortune in life and love forward and always love when my clients want to find ways to do the same in their weddings and events.

Kristy Diana

Senior Planner

Hi, I’m Kristy. I’ve had the pleasure of being a “lady who LOLAs” since 2008. I have loved growing with this LOLA family and working with so many amazing clients and their families from a wonderful variety of backgrounds. I’ve done over 125 weddings and events as of January 2019, and it never gets old. I learn something with each event!

Prior to working with LOLA, I planned events in a corporate setting. That was a great foundation for moving to a full-time career as an event planner. I learned to anticipate needs, to juggle schedules, and the attitude to work until the job is done right.

Some fun facts about me:

  • All emails I write are edited to reduce the number of exclamation points to an amount most people still consider excessive. I am, in fact, actually that excited.
  • Most people are fooled into thinking I’m laid back because I’m very calm, but I’m actually very type-A.
  • I can have a multi-hour conversation about vegetables.
  • My husband and I were married in 2010 at Salvage One in a cozy winter wedding and now live in Logan Square.
  • I am a mom to two boys, my oldest is a rescue Pitbull and the youngest is a human who is inexplicably blonde!
  • Even if it’s the most traditional vows, hearing the emotion in someone voice as they make the commitment of marriage will always choke me up.

11 years in and I still get such a sense of fulfillment in helping couples find their own unique way of expressing their love and commitment.

Whether it’s black tie in a grand ballroom or cocktails and dancing to a jazz trio on a veranda, a wedding should be a celebration of the couple, their story and their dreams for the future. I love to help a couple decide what their wedding should look and feel like, then manage the millions of little details that will transform those dreams into a memorable experience for the couple and their guests.

Yes, bring on the details! Logistics and event execution are my specialty. My corporate and wedding experience combined has taught me to be calm and precise in event execution. I’m a pro at figuring out how all the moving pieces fit together and often find myself up at night running scenarios in my head – including the all-important (and hopefully unnecessary) strategies for what to do if something doesn’t go as planned. I’ve already covered every scenario, so you can wake on your wedding day confident and calm knowing I’ve got your back!

My ultimate goal? That my couples get to see their wedding vision to come to life and are able to be truly present for each other on their wedding day and focus on the reason for the event – their love and the start of their life together.

Whoever said “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” captured exactly how I feel about my experiences with LOLA. I can’t wait to help more couples find their happy beginnings!

Kirstin Basch

Kirstin Basch

Senior Planner

Hi there! You can call me Kirsty – like Thirsty

I’ve been a member of the LOLA Family since 2012. ‘They’ were right when ‘they’ said “time flies when you’re having fun!” My right brain and my left brain are constantly battling one another for attention, which is why I love this career so much. I’m able to structure and utilize systems to ensure the planning process is organized, efficient and fun all while letting my creative energy shine through. I should mention, you can expect to get an email from me before 8am at some point in the planning process because I like to get up and get my day started. Don’t worry, I don’t expect you respond at that time!

I focus my time to clients who are looking for guidance throughout their entire wedding planning journey- especially those who want someone to really dive into the design portion of their day, and want honest feedback through the process. We’ll talk about your wish list, goals, and expectations (keep in mind, I’ll tell you if they’re unrealistic) to curate a team of vendors to cover our organizational needs, then dive into the beauty of the design process. I’m all about logistics (hello, timelines!) but get really excited when we’re talking about the nitty gritty of your décor; what fork are your guests using? How is the napkin going to sit on the table? Tell me about your favorite flower! What about a cheese fountain with lots of soft pretzels and beer pairings? (I forgot to mention-I also love food). Where can we find your inspiration? It can be from a childhood memory or from an inside joke from your very first date. I want to help bring your vision to life, but make it different than a typical Pinterest wedding

Through the process I like to get to know my clients and their VIPs. While you two are the ones saying “I do”, I’m fully aware there may be friends and family members involved in the process who are investing emotionally (and let’s face it, financially) in your celebration. I want to get to know them, too, and hope you’ll also get to know me through our time together. The day of your wedding I love seeing you surrounded by YOUR people. Interactions with your friends and the excitement brewing around you really amps me up and gives me the adrenaline to pump through the wedding day. Seriously – I’m usually wide away until like 3am from pure excitement. I’ll take care of all of the details and you can just enjoy starting your next chapter.

Here’s a bit more about me: My Husband, Garrett and I love living in Chicago, but our hearts are in Cleveland. Yes, I rooted for the Cleveland Indians during the 2016 World Series (it was a dark time in the Basch household). Cleveland sports fans are the most loyal people you’ll ever meet. It’s not always easy, but one day it WILL be worth it! I’m usually over caffeinated and looking for my next coffee fix. I’ve got the travel bug and I don’t hate it. I’m hoping to knock out a handful US destinations and continue to add to my passport in the next year or two. In my wiser years I am learning that there are few things I cherish more than time with my friends and family – and maybe a competitive game night or two. I’m one of the lucky ones who is still best friends with my friends from childhood and high school, and met some of my closest confidants in college while being a member of Delta Gamma. Last and most definitely not least, you’ll hear me talk about and probably see a hundred pictures of my dog Otis. He’s my trusty home office assistant and probably next to me if we’re ever on a call. He’s inspired me so much; I now even dedicate time being a board member of our favorite dog park.

I can’t wait to hear about your vision and your story, and bring it to life in a way that showcases YOU
