The Monte Bello Estate is a unique, elegant wedding venue and event space in Lemont, Illinois. The 55 acre estate and charming gardens make it one of the most picturesque locations, with unlimited beautiful backdrops, for a ceremony and wedding reception in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. The ponds, waterfalls, American Oak trees make it a photography dream for wedding day portraits.
Emma and Daniel had the perfect wedding day on Oct 1, 2021. After getting ready at the Aloft in Bolingbrook, the couple shared their first look by the waterfall of the Monte Bello Estate. It was one of the sweetest, most emotional moments of their day. I always love first looks because it’s one of the few times during the wedding day when a couple gets to share some alone time with each other, soaking everything in.
Shortly after, the bridal party and immediate families arrived to the venue for portraits. The traditional Jewish ceremony was officiated by Emma’s brother, and the couple wrote their own sentimental vows to one another.
One of my favorite things about The Monte Bello Estate is the beautiful little “hidden gems” on the inside of the mansion where you can take portraits, such as the library. The reception space, with the crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow you to enjoy the lovely ambiance throughout cocktail hour and dinner. After the heartfelt speeches, it wasn’t long before everyone was tearing up the dance floor to celebrate these two newlyweds. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Beaudoin! Wishing you both all the happiness in your marriage!
