  • The Monte Bello Estate was the perfect location for our wedding. We were looking for something unique and elegant, surrounded by nature that felt like home. The service offered was top notch from the very beginning. Courtney and Abby made sure every detail was covered and they put together a really special and memorable tasting day. The day of the wedding, Courtney was there to ensure that all moved smoothly. Our families and friends were so impressed with the quality of service and how charming the venue was. The food and cake were absolutely delicious! The photos turned out beautifully on the grounds of the estate. The entire day really felt like a dream come true. We are so happy to have chosen The Monte Bello Estate for the most special day of our lives.

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Monte Bello Estates. My husband and I had our August 24, 2019 wedding there and it was exactly as I had always dreamed my wedding would be. We worked with Courtney and she was always extremely responsive and helpful. We had our ceremony in the outdoor wooded area. There is so much natural beauty out there that there is really no need for any extra decor. Our cocktail hour was outdoors, and our reception was in the four seasons tent. The Monte Bello photographs extremely well and all our pictures came out beautifully. The food was absolutely amazing as well. We are still receiving compliments on how beautiful our wedding was!

  • My husband, family, and I were beyond impressed with this venue. I am SO happy we picked this place to have our ceremony and reception. When initially looking for wedding venues I knew that I was going to be very picky. I work in the wedding industry as a florist and have seen dozens of venues in the area but have never been here before. After seeing pictures online I knew I had to see this place. When pulling in, our jaws dropped - it was even more beautiful than the pictures and the property was massive. One piece of advice I would give is to book this place fast because spots fill up quickly (rightfully so since it is gorgeous). We booked our July 11th, 2020 wedding date in January 2019 and had about a year and a half to plan. Abbey was our coordinator at Monte Bello and she was wonderful with the planning process. She was kind, organized, and always replied in a timely manner. By the time of spring 2020, we were panicking about our wedding due to Covid-19 and whether it was going t... Read more

  • Monte bello is the best wedding venue around! My husband and I looked at over 12 places at the beginning of our venue search, and the moment we saw Monte Bello we knew it simply could not be beat. Not only are the grounds beautiful but the staff are amazing. There are so many options when it comes to photo spots, ceremony location, room set-up, food, etc. so you can truly personalize your special day. We worked with both Courtney and Abbey, and we never could have planned a wedding (especially during the pandemic) without them. They remained calm and professional throughout the process, and helped us plan the most beautiful day. The food is amazing and the tasting was so fun! The cocktail hour spot was awesome too! They are always doing upgrades to make the place even more beautiful (in the time I was working with them, they got a new dance floor and redid the entire indoor cocktail hour/ceremony space). My friends and family absolutely loved it. We highly recommend Monte Bello for any... Read more

  • When my husband and I first saw Monte Bello during our venue search, we immediately knew that this was where we wanted our wedding to be held. From the very start, Abbey was absolutely amazing! Not only was she extremely helpful and professional, she always made us feel like a priority. Once it became apparent that we were going to have to alter our plans due to coronavirus, Abbey helped us through all the challenges of postponing, and gave us peace of mind as we figured out what to do. We ended up moving our original church wedding to a small outdoor ceremony at Monte Bello, and it could not have been more perfect! Once again, Abbey was so patient and helpful in making sure everyone was where they needed to be, and helping the ceremony flow smoothly. Our guests loved the venue and couldn’t stop commenting on how beautiful it was (pictures don’t do it justice)! We had our postponed reception a few weekends ago, and as usual, the Monte Bello team went above and beyond everything we ... Read more

  • My husband and I ultimately chose Monte Bello as our wedding venue because of the beauty of the estate itself, the flexibility it offered with its packages as well as the staff's overall responsiveness to our wants/needs. We felt confident that our wedding would be executed smoothly because Monte Bello is a "well oiled machine" when it comes to weddings. We were not disappointed. Monte Bello went ABOVE AND BEYOND when it came to planning and executing our wedding. The venue's coordinators and directors were incredibly responsive, impeccable with details and very organized. We did not experience any issues throughout the whole process. Having our wedding at Monte Bello was by far the best decision we made with our wedding.

  • Wow! What an amazing venue. Since day one, the girls at Monte Bello were so helpful and great all the way through our day. Abbey is a rockstar. They put on a great wedding. From early access, to set up, to end of night s’mores. Couldn’t of pictured our wedding anywhere else. So sad we won’t be able to have that experience again. Worth every penny.

  • We had our wedding at the Monte Bello Estate in September 2019 and it was INCREDIBLE!!! Abbey was our coordinator and we loved working with her and all the staff at the Monte Bello. She was knowledgeable, responsive, helpful, easy to work with and kind. We had the use of the full mansion and grounds from noon until midnight and we took full advantage! The bridal suite and groom suite are both amazing and very different. There was plenty of space to get ready in both and take some pictures. The interior of the mansion and the grounds are just beautiful and well taken care of. We were married under the gazebo on the grounds and we took all our wedding photos there as well. Our photographs are incredible, and we will cherish them forever. Abbey made sure that all the details of our wedding went smoothly. She personally went above and beyond to make sure that our guests that needed a little extra assistance received it. We will always be grateful for this. The me... Read more

  • Monte Bello was hands down a perfect wedding venue. It had everything we were looking for and the day turned better than we could have imagined. We worked with Courtney in planning our wedding and she was beyond helpful. One of our favorite things about the venue was the idea of the outdoor cocktail hour since we wanted our guests to be able to enjoy the beautiful grounds. We had some rain the morning of our wedding, but rather than moving cocktail hour inside immediately, Courtney waited until the last possible moment to make a decision in case the weather cleared up- and it did! We were able to have a perfect outdoor cocktail hour. Courtney also helped us arrange ideal seating for our guests- including being able to choose where everything was located, from the DJ to the dance floor to the head table. All of our guests were impressed by just about everything at Monte Bello, but we especially received a lot of compliments regarding the food. The filet and chicken were both excellent o... Read more

  • From day 1 of working with The Monte Bello Estate it was a breeze. The ladies are amazing at making you feel at ease throughout the whole planning process. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful but it is a timeless experience. Everything is done in house for an easy planning perspective.. one stop shop!! We got married on August 3rd of 2019 and the landscaping was a dream. Every guest from our wedding is still talking about how amazing the food, venue and service was. We cannot thank the Monte Bello enough for how amazing they were and how beautiful our wedding was. We highly recommend having your wedding here, you will not be disappointed and who doesn't loving having a wedding where your guests cant stop talking about it!?

  • The Monte Bello Estate was nothing short of perfect for our wedding. The grounds were absolutely breathtaking. Everything was stunning and ran so smoothly. We got so many compliments on the venue, the food and the cake. Abbey was so amazing to work with throughout our year and a half of planning. She was helpful, sweet, organized & passionate. We loved our wedding at Monte Bello SO much! Highly recommend!

  • I cannot recommend Monte Bello Estate enough! This venue is not only absolutely beautiful, but all of the girls that work there are so extremely helpful and very good at what they do! My husband and I instantly fell in love the moment we toured this venue and had so much fun working with the MB team to execute our perfect wedding day! Despite not being able to have our wedding outside (it rained AND snowed on our April wedding day), it was still the most magical wedding. Abbey deserves a very special shout-out for all of her help - she went above and beyond helping us plan our wedding and was extremely patient and kind with answering every email/phone call that was sent to her. We are so extremely happy we chose to have our wedding at Monte Bello and want to say a HUGE thanks to everyone that helped make it happen. You guys are the best!

  • I still have dreams about my wedding because of how beautiful The Monte Bello Estate is. I could not have asked for a better place to have my wedding. My husband and I had family flying in from Arizona as well as family that was local in Illinois and everyone was blown away by this venue and still talk about how gorgeous it was. It is timeless and stunning, inside and out, and my husband and I could not have been more happy with our magical wedding location. Wedding venue's are everywhere and relatively easy to come by, but if you want a gorgeous venue AND an amazing support system to get you through this wedding planning process, you NEED to use The Monte Bello Estate. Courtney Troyner is not only one of the best Venue Coordinator's out there, but she is truly just the sweetest person. I live in Arizona now and she was willing to have non-stop communication with me throughout the entire planning process. Courtney was so patient with me when figuring out our guest count and floor plan ... Read more

  • Overall, we had a great experience and a dream wedding at The Monte Bello Estate. Many of our guests commented on how special and beautiful the space was. We were also able to capture lots of one-on-a-kind pictures on the grounds. We had to move the cocktail hour at the last minute due to rain but there wasn't any impact to our timeline or guests' experience. The servers, bartenders, etc. were also all great and made sure the bridal party and family were well taken care of. The team was easy to work with, we started planning with Sara, then worked with Abbey, and finally worked with Courtney for the day of. Everyone was very responsive to email questions and special requests (for example, we asked to bring in a custom sweet table, a tradition with Greek weddings). Would highly recommend the Monte Bello for your wedding or event, unique space and great team!

  • Monte Bello was the first and only venue my husband and I visited. As soon as we got out of the car and saw the beautiful grounds with big, mature trees, we knew that's where we wanted our outdoor wedding. The entire venue is gorgeous, both inside and out. I loved the tent-feel of the reception area without actually being outside. June 15 was, unfortunately, a rainy day, but moving everything inside worked out perfectly. Courtney was our coordinator and she was extremely helpful from beginning to end. I lost my dad unexpectedly the week before my wedding and she took initiative and did whatever she could to help my family and me with whatever we needed to finish planning. The food was delicious and we still have guests talking about it. I think the grilled cheese shooters were everyone's favorite and the late-night burgers were perfect for the dancing fools! The only reason I gave 4 stars was due to the cost. Like most venues, the extras really add up and the packages a... Read more
