The Monte Bello Estate

Wedding and Event Venue Chicagoland

16501 135th Street
Lemont, IL 60439


The Monte Bello Estate is a venue for those looking for more than the “cookie cutter” wedding, rehearsal dinner or bridal shower– 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 early American Oak trees and restored prairies, couples can create their own personalized event. Monte Bello provides the most picturesque setting with our enchanting estate and breathtaking grounds that are the perfect backdrop for your unforgettable ceremony and wedding reception. Monte Bello offers an outdoor ceremony site and a gorgeous indoor backup ceremony site in case of poor weather. The Monte Bello Estate also offers three distinctive food and beverage packages to choose from.
All our weddings and events are allowed exclusive use of the estate grounds, mansion, and tent during your event. We have an elegant Bridal Suite complete with furnishings from Restoration Hardware and Z Gallerie, and a place to display your wedding dress. We also have the perfect Grooms Suite that is a man cave like no other with a poker table, craps table, foosball table, pool table, and guitar and sports memorabilia. This is where it all begins.

Sara Nili
Director of Marketing & Special Events

I have firsthand experience with all things wedding related after planning my own wedding in May 2015 (yes, wedding planning can be really fun!). My favorite part of being in the event industry is helping clients add personalized details to create unique, one-of-a-kind events. My degree in Communication and Public Relations benefits me in specializing in marketing and social media at The Monte Bello Estate. Our staff would describe me as a positive person who is committed to making sure you and your guests have the most unforgettable day!
