Testimonials

- Mallory Y.

"I couldn't have asked for anything more from the team at Monte Bello. But I definitely tried. My wedding was beautiful and went so smoothly. Additionally, I can't emphasize enough how beautiful this venue was. I have so many gorgeous photos with a wide variety of locations. It looks as if we traveled to multiple places to get all the photos."

- Cate J.

"All I can say is..Best decision of my life! The grounds are absolutely stunning. I felt like I was in a fairytale. I can't count how many times one of our guests remarked how lovely the reception was. We have so many gorgeous photos of us outside on the bridge overlooking the pond."

- Heather J.

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about our ceremony and reception there. There really is no place like Monte Bello! It was raining out that day so we had to move our ceremony inside but their backup indoor ceremony space was just so beautiful we really did not even mind!! Not like any other back up space I had ever seen. The staff was so accommodating and made the whole day relaxing and enjoyable."

-Danielle Y.

"After looking at several different wedding venues around the Chicagoland area, nothing that we saw came close to what The Monte Bello Estate offers. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind venue that is exclusively YOURS (you will not be sharing any space with any other bride), if you love nature and want an outside wedding, you'll have access to 55+ acres of gorgeous scenery, and if you want your own house with the most beautiful bridal suite for you and your ladies to get ready in while the guys have their own man cave then The Monte Bello Estate is the perfect wedding venue for you!! And, I cannot forget about the enclosed glass tent where the reception takes place is the nicest wedding tent I have been to for a wedding venue."

- Lisa P.

"I cannot say enough great things about the Monte Bello. We had our ceremony and reception here and everything was perfect. The entire venue inside and outside is stunning. We hardly needed any decor because of how beautiful it was. Abbey, Katie, Sarah, and Courtney were so great to work with. They answered all of our questions in a timely fashion and were beyond accommodating. The food and cake were both great. All of our guests could not stop talking about how great this place was and what a gem it was. I could not be more thankful to have found this place because they truly helped our vision become reality. I would recommend them to everyone!!"

"We got married at Monte Bello and it was beautiful. It unfortunately rained, but the staff waited until very late to give us the chance to attempt to still have it outside. We really appreciated that, and other ways that they went above and beyond. The food was simply amazing and we keep getting compliments on it. Of course, the venue itself is gorgeous and you couldn't ask for a more idyllic setting."

- Emily K

"Beautiful venue! Very courteous, prompt, professional staff! Food and natural setting exquisite. There isn't a need for too much decor, because the grounds and venue fairytale-like atmosphere is pretty on its own! My husband and I were very pleased with each time we visited our venue- for everything from the food tasting to the final walk through. The staff is so welcoming- you feel like family. We would highly recommend the Monte Bello Estate for your wedding. It will be unforgettable in every way!"

- Kathleen K

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and all the staff!!! The Monte Bello Estate was the ideal venue for our wedding (June 3, 2017). After the wedding, we were hearing for weeks from our guests that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever been to. The estate has SO much to offer a bride and groom. There are endless backdrops for gorgeous and unique pictures. Abbey, Katie, & Sara were fantastic. They were so patient and courteous with us. They are truly a good team that knows what they're doing. Your wedding day is in safe hands with them!!! I wish we could relive our day over and over because it was perfect. I don't think any other venue could have given us the special day that we had."

- Lauren A.

"We just had our wedding here last Saturday and everything was amazing! First off, the staff is wonderful. Courtney, Abbey, Sara, and Katie were all helpful since day one with planning our special day. There are so many great places to take pictures. Our family and friends are still raving about our wedding and how beautiful the venue was. We want to relive the day! The Monte Bello Estate is a magical place to have your wedding!"

-Michelle C.

"Monte Bello was absolutely amazing. We held both our ceremony and reception at the venue, and our wedding was nothing short of magical. We rented the venue for the day and we're able to get ready in the bridal and groom suites. Food is incredible. Our guests were blown away. Would absolutely recommend!"

-Mary D.

"My husband and I had our dream wedding at the Monte Bello Estate. The Monte Bello is really a perfect venue, it is spacious and gorgeous and feels like you are at a garden mansion estate. You can choose to get married outside or inside, and they have a beautiful glass tent for the reception. We looked at 12 other venues in Chicago but we could not get close to this amount of space in the city. I also loved all the add ons they had to make your event more personalized, we added on s’mores and yard games, and our guests raved about both activities."
