Nina was amazing to work with. She was so fast at responding to any email or call I made to her and was so accommodating to help me make this dream venue my own.
Annie and Mike were amazing at the bar. So fast and friendly and made sure my entire bridal party and I were always taken care of .
Every guest had so many compliments about the venue and food. From the appetizers to dinner to cake and desserts everything was delicious.
The dance floor is huge which was perfect for our 170 people who attended.
Planning a wedding can be very stressful and working with Nina took the stress away. She is so on top of everything I never worried or had to follow up. I had my dream wedding at the Bond thank you for making it happen Nina!!
