We did our reception at the the South Shore Cultural Center, which is owned by the park district. South Shore is a beautiful place to have a reception. We did appetizers and dancing in the Solarium and dinner in the ballroom. The rental fee includes the tables and chairs you need, parking is free, and their staff is really great. We got a ton of compliments on the unique venue and on the view of the lake.
