    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!

    Monte Bello went above/beyond for our wedding!

    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.
