Nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience at The Bond with Abby and the JDK group. The space is phenomenal-we received so many compliments from our guests about how unique it was. Nothing but glowing reviews about the food, as well. Abby was very responsive throughout the planning process, answering emails most often within 24 hours. The bridal and groom suites were a huge help the day of the wedding. They made for great pictures and allowed us to prep without running into each other. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks!
This is a great spot! It looks and feels like you're in Brooklyn with all the industrial feel to the exposed brick walls. It has beautiful bride suite and an awesome man cave like groom's suite as well. The venue coordinator is very responsive. I had a certain vision to the style for my wedding and the venue made it possible b/c it served as an empty canvas for me to decorate it any way I wanted. Unlike the golf course club house feel, this venue has an intimate but yet very modern feel to it. You will see what I mean when you visit.
We just got married here on New Years Eve. I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue. From the very beginning, signing the contract, to every last detail...Abby helped our vision come to life. I was blown away at how beautiful the space was. The staff was amazing and the food was great!! I can't recommend this venue enough. Being from York, but living in Philadelphia now, this was the perfect atmosphere to fit our urban style. This place is amazing and I just want to do it all over again!!
As soon we walked into The Bond we knew it would be the place we said "I do" It was easy to fall in love with the exposed brick and gorgeous chandlers. It was exactly the look we were going for for our shabby chic Black tie wedding. Abby and all of JDK went about and beyond to make sure our day was nothing short of perfect. Abby was very helpful in the whole planning process and made sure our dream wedding came to life. The staff for JDK is amazing! They were very attentive to us and our guest. We had so many compliments on the food. Our day wouldn't have been the same without Abby, JDK, or our beautiful venue!
We fell in love with The Bond as soon as we looked at it for our August wedding. Not only was the venue beautiful with the exposed brick walls and the cute bridal suite, Abby was amazing to work with! She went far beyond our expectations to make sure every detail was flawless. She was quick to answer emails and phone calls and worked with us to create the wedding we envisioned. We are so glad we chose to get married at The Bond. We loved working with Abby and the entire team at JDK!
We absolutely loved having our wedding and reception at The Bond. Abby, Erika, and the rest of the JDK group did a wonderful job helping us to plan and then host a special event. From the first meeting with Erika, we felt in capable hands and this certainly was the case throughout the entire process. Our guests loved the food and the catering staff was so professional. The venue is beautiful -- complete with large windows so there is great light. Our nieces especially enjoyed getting ready in the bridal suite. We can't say enough good things about the JDK group. They thought of everything and were so helpful throughout the whole planning process. We especially appreciated their help at the end of the night when we were packing up and exhausted. We highly recommend this venue and the JDK group. Our guests also liked being downtown and having the ability to walk to the hotel and to the downtown restaurants/bars.
My husband and I feel so lucky to have had our ceremony and reception at this unique venue. The moment we saw The Bond we fell in love and knew this was where we wanted to get married. We loved the industrial feel (esp. the exposed brick, pipes and chandeliers) in the urban setting. We have had so many compliments from our guests, who loved the venue was much as we did. Not only was the venue great, but also Abby was fantastic to work with – she was extremely responsive to emails, is extremely detail oriented, and was really helpful in making our wedding vision a reality. We would highly recommend The Bond to anyone who is looking to get married in Central Pennsylvania.
A million words could not express how insanely happy we were with The Bond. Abby and her team totally exceeded our expectations. Everything was beautiful and perfect. The night before our wedding, I was having second thoughts about the linen color I had chosen, Abby did everything she could to change it for me and it was perfect. The attention to detail is like nothing I've ever seen. The decor that Abby brought in for us was exactly what we would of chosen ourselves. She really listened to our ideas and understood our style. If I could go back I would not change one single thing. The space is so unique and I'm sad our wedding is over! It was a pleasure and I will be recommending The Bond and Abby to anyone that will listen
If you want a venue guests won't stop talking about, choose THE BOND! The Bond was the perfect setting for our elegant and modern wedding. Every detail (and then some) was taken care of by Abby and her team. The planning process couldn't have been simpler, and I felt assured through the entire process that we would have a picture perfect celebration. We were a bit hesitant to go with The Bond because it's a new venue, but trust me...they know their stuff! I was blown away at the attention to detail and professionalism of the staff. We've had the best comments from friends and family, some even saying it was the best wedding they've ever attended. Another great part...the free parking lot directly across from the venue. No need for guests to "find" city parking...it's all right there (and free!). Thank you Abby and The Bond for the best day (and best party) of our lives!
This newer venue has all you need and more to pull off your perfect industrial chic wedding. The raw beauty of the space, paired with an amazing staff made for the wedding of my dreams. There are so many great things to say about this venue, starting with the people. All of them are insanely nice and friendly, and the best part is, they are insanely good at their jobs. Abby, did an amazing job coordinating all things related to the venue. I have to say, my wedding was filled with tons of details (a lot of which I brought in) and she got it all perfectly. From the setup of the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, she was thorough, knowledgable and detail oriented. Erika- the florist. This woman is beyond talented. She not only built an insane backdrop i dreamed up but she added her own details throughout as well. If you have something specific you want, she will execute with perfection, but my advice is to give her inspiration and let her creativity take over and run free. you will not be disappointed. The Food- Fantastic. Everyone raved about it all. Originally I was a bit worried because you had to use their caterer, however, when you taste it, you wont be worried anymore. There are lots of options and the chef will also work with you to make your food everything you could imagine and more. They are also great with dietary restrictions! Some other great perks for this spot- -You provide your own alcohol. Originally, I thought this was not going to be good because I had no idea how much I needed, etc. But it actually was a huge cost saver. The staff was amazing about not opening anything before it was needed and at the end we were able to return what they didnt use. We had 150 guests and an open bar for the cocktail hour and reception and ended up costing us $9/ person with top shelf liquor and craft beer. AMAZING. -on site bride and groom suites- great spaces you can hangout in before the ceremony. Only down side is there isnt a bathroom in the bridal suite, but it didnt end up being an issue at all! -Great local places around the venue to capture awesome pictures -An amazing garage door that will fulfill all drama needed for the Bride's grand entrance. Over all, the Bond is a special place and the staff is incredible to work with. You wont regret having your wedding here.
Very early on in to the engagement, my now husband and I knew that we wanted to throw this once-in-a-lifetime celebration in a very unique venue. South Central PA has a plethora of hotels, country clubs, and rustic barn settings to choose from but not much outside of that. Which is why we were ecstatic when we met with Abby Roche, who is the event coordinator for JDK Weddings at The Bond! It is just absolutely gorgeous and the perfect backdrop for those, "think outside of the box" couples! With JDK Weddings, you certainly get a very pleasurable, personal experience with wedding planning. This company takes great pride in the presentation and quality of the food and decor. We had a 4 course tapas style meal and were worried as to the potential size of the serving. Well, when we went for our food taste testing session, our concerns were easily quelled as the portion size was just about the same as a regular meal! We walked away with full bellies from that session! Abby was so easy to work with, as well. The Bond is a relatively new venue, as it opened its doors in May 2015, so Abby and the other folks from JDK Weddings really want this investment to succeed (and it shows). Abby was relatively responsive to her emails (as the wedding date approached she really picked up), had amazing suggestions with the table settings and over-all concept we were going for, and an easy-going, calm attitude. We had rented farmhouse tables from a local company and realized two weeks before the wedding that we ended up being one table short . Panicked, as that vendor did not have any to spare, Abby reassured that we could rent the farmhouse table JDK Weddings had from that same vendor. So we were able to maintain our soft romantic decor that was juxtaposed against the harsh industrial tone with that extra farmhouse table! Abby and The JDK Wedding Group are also very flexible, as they permitted us to leave some larger items behind for pick-up a couple days later. Come the wedding day, we received so many compliments from the guests about the venue. Given that the neighborhood that The Bond is located in, is not the greatest, Abby reassured that the side door would be locked and the gifts would be moved to inside the bridal room. They did just that. Also, the parking lot for The Bond is directly across the street with ample lighting. The guests and the bridal party felt very safe walking to the cars late at night. The ambiance inside The Bond was just beyond perfect, the servers were extremely attentive, and everything ran smoothly. Throughout the night, Abby would pop over to us, as well as our parents to check in and make sure there were no issues. There was easily enough space so that the guests were not bumping in to one another. The Bond offers two separate rooms for the bride and groom to change and relax in both before and during the celebration. The bridal room is huge with places to hang dresses, a wall with a mirror to apply makeup and do hair, as well as a mini refrigerator to keep drinks nice and cool. The bathrooms were huge and clean, while maintaining the industrial chic-look! We just cannot sing enough praises about this venue, the event coordinator, and the catering group. If you are a couple that likes to think outside of the wedding box, then this place is for you! It is a must come-and-see!
