    Happiest Place on Earth

    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 as we had several family hardships that came up towards the end. She offered so many helpful suggestions that I wouldn't have even thought about, AND when my makeup lady bailed 9 days before the wedding, Courtney was able to suggest an awesome makeup artist and SHE did the research to see if she had availability. It meant the world to me. The staff, all around, goes unmatched at The Monte Bello Estate. My husband and I, as well as my family, couldn't have been any more thrilled with how our wedding went at their venue. All of the support from the staff was unlike any other, the venue is absolutely beautiful and the food and extra services was worth every (incredibly reasonably priced) dime we spent. I cannot say thank you enough to them for making the entire process everything a bride could ever dream of. If you are looking for a place to blow your guests away and have a magical wedding, The Monte Bello Estate is the place to be!

    A Fairytale Come True

    We got married on October 20th of this year, and I have nothing but glowing things to say about Monte Bello! The food is fantastic, the venue is both beautiful and unique, and every staff member is a delight to work with.

    Abbey was such an amazing coordinator; she answered my (many) questions and made planning an out of state wedding a breeze. It was no problem at all for me to communicate everything to Abbey and then hand over the "logistics" to her the day of so we could take the time to enjoy the day. Our day was our own little fairytale and we couldn't be happier! Don't hesitate to book with Monte Bello; they will make your wedding day one of the best days of your life!
