Why Do Clients Love Our Venues?


The Bond, Linwood Estate, and Historic King Mansion are the three exclusive venues that we, The JDK Group, have the pleasure of working with. Since each of these venues has an exclusive partnership with us, we are able to provide a full-service experience giving you and your guest a one of a kind event! Even before your big day, we have what you are looking for to alleviate your planning stress. We could go on about what we love in each venue but we decided to reach out to our clients and asked them to share with us their honest opinions.


Looking for a venue with luxurious exclusivity? Linwood Estate is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a beautiful scenic view. It expands over 300 private acres of lush rolling hills in the Great Appalachian Valley – a setting perfect for portraits.

On the estate’s grounds sets a 19th-century mansion that was built in 1870. The unique stone exterior paired with elegant landscaping truly sets the tone for the rest of the location. The interior is full of historic charm paired with modern amenities. The Appalachian Ballroom is a stunning space that exudes beauty; from the custom chandelier in the middle of the space to the hardwood floors. This elegant room can hold 250 people. buy arava online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/arava.html no prescription

Our past clients have spoken out about their experience at Linwood. One client, in particular, developed a strong relationship with the venue managers Jess and Michelle. Danielle was all the way from California! She was so excited for her special day, and we made sure it went off without a hitch. Jess and Michelle took care of the planning and developed a family-like relationship with Danielle.

“This venue was exactly what we were looking for, and the ladies that helped us became family… We couldn’t have done it without Jess, Michelle, and JDK“. – Danielle
