The best decision we made when planning our wedding was to choose Bond. Bond provided us with the most special and magical day of our lives. Nina and her team worked tirelessly to make sure everything was just right for our big day. Bond made us feel special from the initial booking, through our private tasting and the whole planning process. Bond continued to make us feel incredibly special through our wedding day with so much attention to detail and extra touches for the event.Sent on 06/16/2019
Bond also provided us with convenience. We wanted an all in one venue. We ended up receiving countless compliments from our guests of how smooth and easy the day felt by having everything at Bond. The distinct spaces within the same building, including Chapel, Cocktail Room, Ballroom, Bridal Suite and hotel rooms, was amazing. Nina and the team worked especially hard to get the new Chapel opened and looking beautiful for our wedding this past May. We were thrilled with the top floor Ballroom for our reception. The view of Hartford towards Bushnell Park, the Capitol and the Arch was magnificent. The chandelier, high ceilings, large dance floor and historic setting were stunning. The large dance floor stayed full all night. We went with one of the Bond’s preferred vendors Audio Media Solutions as our DJ and event lighting which worked perfectly for us.
The staff, chefs, and bakers for the Bond team were wonderful. All of the food was incredible. The cake looked elegant and tasted delicious. The oreo buttercream filling was a big hit! The bar was incredibly stocked and many of our guests noted how friendly the bartenders were to them through the evening.
We wish we could relive our wedding day again and again. If we could do it again, we would choose Bond. We are so grateful for the day that Bond gave to us. Book your wedding at Bond to have a convenient all in one venue with gorgeous distinct spaces and a team of hard-working, kind and fun professionals.

Bravo. A majestic ballroom, great views, delicious food and a staff that went above and beyond our expectations, all came together to create a magical night for my daughter’s sweet sixteen celebration. Our guests were amazed at the splendor of the room and spacious dance area while also highly complimenting the food. Event director Nina was very resourceful and accommodating. I highly recommend The Bond Ballroom for any celebration.Sent on 10/15/2018
