The Monte Bello Estate is a venue for those looking for more than the “cookie cutter” wedding, social party, or corporate event – they are wanting something unique, intimate, with elegant simplicity. From the exclusive 55-acres of picturesque ponds and waterfalls, to the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the 100 year old early American Oak trees and restored prairies, couples can create their own personalized event.

This is where it all begins.

The location and facility are beautiful and unique. Every staff member was helpful and professional. And the food received rave reviews from our guests. Having just hosted a party/reception at The Monte Bello Estate, following an earlier destination wedding, we highly recommend this hidden jewel in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. A 2016 family wedding on the grounds showed us how gorgeous it looked. Now we know first-hand how well it operates. Abbey, Katie, Sara and the entire staff worked with us from beginning to end, making sure that it was well-planned and yet pressure-free. An overall fantastic experience!

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. They are constantly making improvements to the venue; in the year since we booked, they added chandeliers, an outdoor bar, among other improvements. We looked at 12 other venues in Chicago, but we could not get close to this amount of space in the city. The staff at Monte Bello were incredibly responsive and kind through the entire year, although we knew they had so many weddings before ours. They answered all of our messages promptly, and welcomed us warmly to the venue multiple times when we came to show it to our families or needed additional planning meetings. 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. The day of the wedding, we knew that the staff was there making sure things ran smoothly, but I also appreciated that they trusted us to take care of the space and we mostly in the background. It made it feel like we owned a mansion for the day. Sara and Abbey were especially amazing and made the whole experience stress free, I highly highly recommend the Monte Bello and need one of my friends to get married there so I can go back!

After looking at several different wedding venues around the Chicagoland area, nothing that we saw came close to what The Monte Bello Estate offers. When my now, husband and family went there for our first visit and meeting with Abbey, we immediately knew THIS IS THE PLACE. Not only were we blown away by the beauty of the grounds, but Abbey gave us the warmest welcome and treated us like family. Down to every bit of detail that is involved with wedding planning, Abbey made that process seamless and made sure on our big day that everything that we planned was perfectly executed. And it was everything that I could have ever imagined and MORE! 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. Your guests will also enjoy cocktail hour outside on their newly built outdoor bar and lounge area by their in ground pool. Did I also mention that the food was top notch! Even down to our cake, it was absolutely delicious!! I fell in LOVE with this place and all the people that work there. Best decision that we made when it came to wedding planning was choosing The Monte Bello Estate. This place and their staff deserve 10 stars!!!

We fell in love with The Monte Bello Estate the very first time seeing it. This was the wedding that I had always dreamed of having! Besides having such a beautiful atmosphere, the food and service was exceptional! The girls, especially Abbey, were so helpful and patient with all of our questions and concerns! They made the day go smoothly, and took the stress off of us. My husband and I are so happy with how our day turned out and we couldn’t have been happier!

Monte Bello Estate went above and beyond ALL expectations I had as a bride. My husband and I worked closely with Abbey who helped coordinate the day to make sure it ran smoothly. She made our wedding seamless. The food is incredible and the scenery is like something out of a movie. I am so passionate about this venue and the entire staff that works there. They truly made our dreams come true!!

I was recently married here in June. I cannot put into words how amazing the Monte Bello estate and their staff are! I fell in love with this venue instantly and knew I couldn't get married anywhere else. Abbey was a rockstar! She was so great to work with! She answered all my questions and emails promptly and we had constant contact. She was always so friendly and helpful. The whole staff is so professional. The estate is gorgeous! My guests were so happy and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff, the venue and the food! I wish I could go back and do it all over again because everything went extremely smooth and it truly was the wedding of my dreams! I highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants something other than a banquet hall. Your guests will rave about everything especially the food. People can be so picky with food but I did not hear one negative thing. Shoutout to Ali Tucker! Again, my whole wedding day was amazing, I could go on and on about how wonderful everything was! Thank you to everyone at the Monte Bello!

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!!!

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.

When we signed our contract for the reception.They informed us that they were making some modifications and remodeling. Nothing would change with why we fell in love with Monte Bello. Well they stuck with why they said and we couldn't be more excited for June to be coming !

The Monte Bello exceeded my expectations in offering a beautiful and stress-free wedding reception site. The venue itself is magical! The exquisite views and beautiful décor truly makes this venue one of a kind. The staff was incredibly helpful - specifically Abbey. Her professionalism and upbeat personality allowed me a chance to enjoy the planning process. She made herself available numerous times during the planning stage to meet in-person to discuss every detail. No question or ask was too much and the attention to detail and customer service was exceptional. It was very nice to have an opportunity to meet with the estate owner as well and to my surprise he made an appearance on our special day just to make sure everything was to our liking. The vendors (DJ, photographer, videographer, florist, etc.) all spoke very highly about the venue and venue staff, mentioning how seamless the coordinating was. Guests continue to rave about how delicious the food was as well as the large portions. Everything from cocktail hour appetizers, to dinner and cake was topnotch. The tasting was a blast and the food was just as delicious day of as it was on our tasting day. It was especially wonderful to have the cake included in the package. Again, less stress! The wait staff was very professional and attentive to all of our guests. One even volunteered to get my bouquet from the bridal suite when she noticed I was without it. To say we had a wonderful day is an understatement. I am so very thankful for all of the hard work and dedication that the entire staff of the Monte Bello exhibited. I highly recommend this venue for any upcoming celebration.
