The Most Perfect Wedding Venue
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.Sent on 10/06/2019

August 2019 Wedding
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!Sent on 12/16/2019

Outstanding planners, the most beautiful venue we have ever seen, amazing food!
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 to be canceled or not. We debated postponing but there were, unfortunately, no summer dates left for 2021. Monte Bello was so amazing with the constant change of plans and even held a tentative date for us in the spring of 2021, but we were all still hoping we could go forward with our wedding on July 11th. Finally, about 2 weeks before the wedding we got the go ahead from the mayor and the team at Monte Bello to go forward with our wedding with some adjustments. We also had another change of plans in that we were originally supposed to have our ceremony in a catholic church but were unable to do so with their Covid restrictions. Monte Bello helped us plan an entire ceremony in a matter of only about a week and I'm so happy we had this change of plans because it was the most beautiful outdoor ceremony in the woods. My parents and family kept bringing up that this was the smoothest wedding they have ever been to, down to the cocktail hour, dinner, late night snacks, and everything in between - every server was friendly and brought things out in a timely matter. I have to bring up that the food was AMAZING. We had the option of filet mignon and champagne chicken for our guests and everyone was raving about the food and how they could cut their steak with a butter knife. My husband is vegetarian and I am pescatarian and they even made special entrees for the two of us upon request. My husband said his pesto tortellini was amazing and my shrimp were THE BEST shrimp I ever had! All of our guests said that this was the best and most beautiful wedding they have ever been to and we definitely have Abbey and the Monte Bello Estate to thank for that. We wish we could re-live our wedding date over and over again at this amazing venue :)Sent on 09/23/2020
