The City of Chicago is celebrating the marriage of its own Mellody Hobson to movie icon George Lucas because they "showed us the money" for their local reception.

The bride wanted a party in her hometown after the ceremony in California last month. The couple rented out the entire park at promontory point on South Lake Shore at 55th Street.

The price tag for ten days of setup, park district crews, clean up and parking lots: $125,000. Since the Lucas fortune is estimated at over $7 billion, a soiree for his bride seems like pocket change.

No word on how much it cost to get Prince to serenade Mellody as she partied like it's 1999.
