Couldn't have chosen a better venue. Having a venue that does everything for you while still letting you customize everything seems impossible to find, but the Monte Cristo was exactly that. My friends and family said it was the best wedding they had been to. Ever! There was food and drink the entire day so I think that had a big influence on them too hahaha. I was really worried that it seemed too good to be true but not at all, it was the best, super affordable for what you At first glance it seems about average but it saves you soon much on all the little stuff.. Five stars, but I would give 10 if I could. If you're a bride who is so busy but doesn't want to be gouged on price, check them out, you won't be disappointed.

At first I thought that "all-inclusive" meant more expensive. I did a lot of research and it seemed like putting everything together myself could potentially be less expensive... But after realizing that every company has hidden costs and fees that add up in THOUSANDS of dollars, I decided to go the all inclusive path. Oh. My. God. I wish I could explain how tremendously happy I am that I did so. After all was said and done, my wedding ended up fitting within the budget I was hoping for, and the best part is that I didn't have to put it all together myself. Pretty much 90% of what you need for your wedding is all at this venue, but it's very customizable so don't think that that means you are stuck with a wedding like everyone else's wedding. Wedding planning was a breeze with the planning team here and the day of coordination team put everything together just as I was envisioning it. The entire process from start to finish was so incredibly easy and enjoyable, I would do it all again and again. The DJ was easy to work with and had all the music I needed, the decor package is really extensive and made it to that I had to buy very little of my own items. I ended up using about a hundred of their candles and vases for my wedding, and nothing cost extra. There was no nickel-and-diming whatsoever. I have had friends who have gotten married and went so far over budget because of hidden costs. I kept expecting something to cost more at the venue. Stationary? Create anything you want with their graphic designer. Food and drink? There are like 100 items served throughout the day and this is just how their menu work, no matter how much you spend at the venue. I have to say that was the best part, not having to feel like I missed out because I spent less than another couple. Montecristo made me feel like the actually cared about my wedding and didn't look at me and my fiance as money. The day itself was flawless, my guest all told me they had the best time ever and did not ha

My fiance's Tyler and I just had our wedding and I absolutely had to take time to post a review for our amazing venue, the Monte Cristo Ballroom! While giving this review I am also reviewing my DJ, wedding planner, and catering because the Monte Cristo does it all. If you are looking to save yourself stress while planning and especially on the day of, look no further. I was immediately dazzled when I first came to look at the venue and had a free tour and tasting. There wasn't a bunch of other people at the tasting and it felt really personal. I knew after trying the food that everything was going to be just awesome. We booked that night and made an appointment to meet with our planner right away. All in all, over the course of many months I probably drove my planner crazy because I wanted to meet with them as much as possible. After all, we've never done this before! The planner that I had was so helpful and had great suggestions or what to do for my wedding. Surprisingly, the Monte Cristo Ballroom is very flexible about what they allow used to do in the venue. It is not the type of space where the answer is often "no". Leading up to my wedding, I was absolutely full of nerves because well, after all, it was our wedding day! But I really had no need to worry. When I arrived on the day of, everything looked just as I had hoped. No friends or family had to come and set up decor, because the Monte Cristo took care of everything. As the day progressed I felt less nervous when I realized that my planner had it all under control. The DJ was fantastic and got my guest excited to dance, the food was just as awesome as it was at the tasting, and overall I know that I saved money by choosing a venue that has everything I needed. I would absolutely, one hundred percent recommend this venue and its services to any possible looking to save themselves stress and a lot of money!!!

I have always gotten butterflies thinking about my wedding day. It's really important to myself and my family to incorporate traditional Indian wedding customs and I found this venue to be so accommodating to all of my ideas and concerns. On the day of my wedding, it felt like a fairytale. Everything looked SO beautiful and well executed. My friends and family never lifted a finger and we were treated like royalty by all the staff and our amazing wedding planner. The Monte Cristo helped me customise my music with their DJ, a perfect mix of some traditional music that I've heard at so many Indian weddings since I've been a little girl and some hip music that got all my guests moving! The food was absolutely incredible and they let my family bring some very special dishes that they wished to incorporate that day, no extra cost. I really appreciated how easily they accommodated all of our wishes. Many venues I had looked at before did not allow for traditional food, even at an additional cost? I found this very upsetting at other venues. I would highly recommend this venue to ANY bride or groom looking for a perfect and magical experience. I still tear up thinking about how wonderful everyone was. I feel like I had true friends in the staff that was there at my wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Being a very particular bride and groom, my fiance and I weren't sure that we were going to find what we needed to meet our wedding wishes. We actually looked at about 10 different venues before coming to the Monte Cristo. Walking in the front door, we knew right away that we liked the feel of the venue. But it wasn't that that really drew us in, it was the fact that it is so exclusive and offer so much right there. I was always already stressing about how long it was going to take to find all my vendors and how much it was going to cost, I was stressed out before I even started planning! But what the Monte Cristo Ballroom does is really different. They have absolutely everything you need and it's all about your big day. I'm not really sure why I have been reading some reviews about the turnover in staff, because it hasn't affected us at all. In fact everyone that we worked with in order to put on our wedding was absolutely amazing, and we were able to call and come visit as much as we wanted. On the day of, everything was just as I had planned and talk to my day of coordinator about. The best part about it is that there were no other charges after the wedding, and my friends and family are still raving about what an amazing time they had and the food especially. The only other advice I have is to make sure that if you're looking for a date in the next year or two that you get in touch with them as soon as possible, because finding a date can be hard.

I just had my wedding at Monte Cristo just last month, and just getting back now to review after my honeymoon. When I think about my experience over the past year I have nothing but good things to say about it. The staff was always helpful, the facility is gorgeous (think 1920s Great Gatsby meets modern updates!)I was never worried about how the wedding was going to go, and when the day came I felt like all of the normal stress and pressure of planning a wedding was alleviated. Not only do they have an amazing planning team, but there wasor pretty much everything you need when it comes to your wedding and no surprise extra costs later. I was able to meet with someone to create my invitations with a designer, there was a ton of decor to choose from (I barely had to bring any in), I got to customize my music with the DJ, and so much more. Usually when you think of something that is all inclusive or has things included with it, you think of being limited on options. But absolutely nothing was limited when it came to my wedding. On top of all of that, it ended up being an awesome price. I did a lot of research beforehand and at first I thought it was kind of expensive, but it's because everything is all in one place. My friends recently had a wedding and it was double the amount because they did everything separately. The day itself was just as I imagined it would be, everyone had an amazing time and it felt like we spent much more on our wedding than we did. What an amazing experience, I would recommend it to any bride in the future!

Both my fiancé and I flew in for the wedding, and this was the perfect venue because we didn't have to worry about a thing! The wedding package included everything we needed, and they set everything up for us the day of the wedding. The staff was phenomenal from the time we showed up for a tour of the venue, until the time we said thank you so much after the night of a successful wedding :) There's no other venue I would have gone with!!

The Monte Cristo was amazing! When we walked in for our tour my now husband and I fell in love with the beautiful, vintage look of the venue. The Bridal suite and the Grooms Room was awesome, especially providing foosball and video game access for the groomsmen to keep them entertained day of. They gave us a sample meal at the tour and it was cooked to perfection! We signed the contract and started our journey planning our wedding. The wedding planners were amazing, helping us bring our wedding dreams to life! We had a lot of color and a lot of small details we wanted to include without making it look too overwhelming. We provided decorations and some basic instructions of what to do with them and they did amazing. They put together a memorial table for us to honor our passed loved ones who couldn't be there and it was simply beautiful. The Day of Coordinator Sierra was amazing and soooo helpful. She kept us on track and helped us manage our day to perfection. The butlers that the venue provides to see to the bride and groom on their wedding day were godsends. They made sure we got food, drinks and anything else we needed help with. The only hitch we ran into was the DJ not contacting us. When the venue was made aware they jumped into action and hired a new DJ to take care of our event and made sure that even though it was very close to our big day that we were taken care of and had what we wanted. The new DJ and MC were amazing and took great care of us. The food was amazing; all of our guests were super happy with the choices made available. I would definitely recommend using the Monte Cristo for your wedding day.

I would recommend to the Monte Cristo Ballroom to everyone. I am usually the type of person who likes to have control of most situations, but when it came to the wedding day I was pretty hands off because the Monte Cristo had proved to me that they would handle everything and make the day go as perfect as possible... and they did! I received so many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful the venue was and how seamless the day seemed to go. There was always some staff of the Monte Cristo willing and able to help you... and they always made sure to check with the bride on final decorations before anyone else could see the rooms. My wedding day was perfect and I know that the Monte Cristo was a large reason for that.

When we were looking for a wedding venue, we wanted to find a place that would make it very easy on us as all of our family and friends are out of state. Monte Cristo definitely fit the bill. It all started when we had our first meeting with them to book. We did feel some pressure to book that night, instead of going home to think about or talk to family, so that we wouldn't miss out on the deal they were offering us. But we couldn't have been happier with signing the contract that night. The team was very welcoming from day one and always readily available. Emails were responded to in a timely manner and answered all of our questions. As it got closer to the big day, they made it easy on us by having the Final Details Packet to fill out to get the little details figured out. Our day of coordinator was Tiemann, and he was amazing, can't say enough about him. He was very calm, organized and professional. Our whole party enjoyed him. Our wedding day was the most perfect day ever. Nothing went wrong, I was just waiting for something to happen, but it never did. The butlers were accommodating and brought us food and drink when we wanted and the whole team set everything up perfectly. Tiemann worked with my husband so I wasn't bothered and could enjoy my time with my bridesmaids getting ready. The ceremony was perfect. Cocktail hour was great. Dinner started, we did buffet style, and our guests could not stop raving about the food. Dancing started and the party went on without a hitch for a few hours. When the night was coming to an end, we got a to-go bag of our favorite foods, the boxed up all of our decorations and had everything ready for us. We wouldn't have asked for a better day. Thank you Tiemann and Monte Cristo Ballroom.

My wedding was absolutely PERFECT!! I don't know where to start... My husband and I were looking for a wedding venue that could be turned into a winter wonder land for our December wedding. Once we booked an appointment we were taken back by the beautiful facility, I mean it’s truly gorgeous; The architecture and charm is amazing but you can see that & The staff is so amazing! We got there they showed us around, we asked questions and then they sat us down we got to try the food(WHICH IS FANTASTIC) watched a video and really gave us the WOW factor; We looked at each other and right then and there knew we needed to have our wedding here! We had 70 people with a sit down dinner with open bar and it was affordable for everything you get! Don't hassle with having to buy everything separate when you can get everything together. There were only two issues we had with them, first off our date was already booked; they book up fast so make sure you get in ASAP, Secondly we had booked our rehearsal months prior and at the last minute they booked an event on that day and we had family coming in town and it made it very stressful and difficult on us but we made it work. Other than those small hiccups our experience was nothing less than exceptional! We had a year and a half engagement and the staff were always staying in contact asking if we needed anything or how they could help us and was truly there for us. The day of I felt like royalty! I mean we had a butler there for us who steamed out dress brought drinks and asked us if we needed help. There was also a wardrobe malfunction with my grooms button on his tuxedo, it had popped off and they sewed it right back up like nothing happened! They relaxed my mind about things going perfect and it truly was my dream wedding! The food was great! The whole event went better than I had envisioned and all the guests loved it and really enjoyed their time! People kept raving about how it had been the BEST wedding they have EVER been to!

We loved MCB the moment we walked in, their services and beautiful venue. It made my life so much easier for being all inclusive and yet i had all the choices i wanted. They are so flexible, they have great sense of what bride really wants and make it all happen. The day of wedding went really smooth, they were there every minute checking up on bride and groom, the wedding party, everything was just perfect. I would recommend to anyone to consider MCB because I was able to have my dream wedding, all thanks to MCB!
