Pamela and Bill knew they wanted to wed in the spring—a time of the year that exudes happiness, love and new beginnings. The Monte Bello Estate seemed like the perfect setting, with its intricate interior details and beautiful landscape.
“When we first visited Monte Bello we were blown away by the beauty of the estate and knew from the beginning that it would be our venue. We were so impressed with the entire process and the staff from the beginning. It definitely was one of the best days of our lives and I think back to our time planning the wedding with Monte Bello with only the fondest memories a bride could have.” -Pamela
The couple shared a few moments together before heading to their outdoor ceremony where guests enjoyed the essence of spring while awaiting their arrival. Pamela carried a cascade bouquet filled with lilies and roses in shades of coral and pink as she strolled down the aisle in a cap sleeve lace gown and custom cathedral-length veil. She was met by the love of her life under a gorgeous arbor adorned with greenery and colorful floral. Coral bridesmaids and groomsmen in classic black tuxes added a touch of romance to the outdoor soiree. Following the I Do’s, guests made their way to a tented reception and were met with walls and tables draped elegantly in white. Table markers were hand painted cardboard books donning law school subjects—a nod to the couple’s time at law school. Green table runners and vibrant floral arrangements added striking pops of color to the dreamy white space. After dinner, Pamela and Bill shared a dance, then spent the evening celebrating with family and friends under a ceiling of glowing string lights.
Words of Wisdom from the Couple
“With all the decisions that have to be made from the napkins to the flowers to the songs, it is easy to feel overwhelmed with all of the details. Using a detailed timeline to check off each item that needs to get done helped us stay on track so that we weren’t overwhelmed towards the end. We usually penciled out a few hours each Saturday to do only wedding tasks and it was fun because we were doing it together and doing it for us.”
