Personalized Elements

Arrive in style! We’ve noticed a trend in transportation that makes for some great photo ops. Whether you’re looking for a grand entrance and/or a monumental exit, here are a few ideas we LOVE from our past weddings.

This carriage gave us major Cinderella vibes! So romantic and made it truly feel like these newlyweds were straight out of a fairy tale.

 

We were so happy to host a Lemont firefighter wedding this year! We love that they decided to have the truck be apart of their big day at the estate.

Another great ride was this hot pink hummer limo. So fun and something different from a traditional limo.

Vintage is so in right now. This couple chose to have an old-fashion car as their mode of transportation. Such a classy touch to this picture perfect day!

Looking for transportation for your whole crew? A trolley is a unique alternative to a party bus. What a fun and cute way to include all your close VIPs on your big day. Monique and Rob-1436Photo Courtesy of Eric Gee Photography

Last but not least, a bride and her horse make for beautiful photos. We’re very excited to say this year we have two more couples who have decided to include horses on their wedding day. Our grounds paint the perfect scene- giving off a whimsical, majestic feel.

*Here at the Monte Bello Estate, we love to see couples add personalized touches to their events. Picking a unique form of transportation can make for another memorable detail for your special day.

July 2017 Wedding Recap

Summer is in full swing and we have been having some beautiful weddings here at the estate! July had tons of fun times, tasty food, beautiful colors and of course, romance.

We’re noticing a lot of couples this year choosing to add on yard games to their cocktail hour. We offer, corn hole, giant jenga, connect four and ring toss. The games are a huge crowd pleaser and a fun addition to the party!

S’mores are (as always) the most popular add on this season. A late night snack is a perfect way to end a night full of celebrating. Our staff sets up a beautiful station of s’mores goodies for guests to build their own treats. The Monte Bello Estate has four fire pits outside for roasting marshmallows under the stars. The fire adds an extra touch of ambiance to the end of your event as your guests start to filter outside.

Every season is beautiful here at the estate so we can’t pick a favorite! However, these summer photos have been exceptionally stunning.

One final detail we loved from July was having Heavenly Harps come in to play for a couple’s ceremony and cocktail hour. The harp adds elegance and romance to weddings that we simply adore! We definitely recommend Heavenly Harps if you’re looking to add on some live music to the beginning of your event.
