The Fabbri family has been creating memorable wedding receptions since October 1969 when Louis Fabbri became co-owner of the Mar Lac House in Oak Park, Illinois. For 20 years Lou and his partner produced thousands of memorable events including wedding receptions, anniversaries, fundraisers, dinner dances, and other community events.
In 1989, Lou’s sons Michael J. Fabbri (currently Executive Vice President) and Robert Fabbri (currently Executive Chef) joined their father at the Mar Lac House and the three planned extensive building and menu renovations. Together, the family developed a strong reputation for quality cuisine and exceptional service. To this day, community events (Easter Sunday Brunch and New Year’s Eve Celebration) that were once hosted at the Mar Lac House are now hosted at the Abbington.
