    My husband and I got married at The Bedford Columns on July 7, 2018. It was literally the best day of our entire lives. Anna, was our planner who was provided through Entwined Events. She was amazing! She was what we called our “quiet force.” She was as sweet as can be, but she makes sure the job gets done and is done to perfection. And when I say to perfection, I mean perfection! Every single detail that we discussed with Anna, even the little things were not unnoticed. She made sure our day went beautifully. When I walked into our ceremony and reception space before the day began, I was absolutely speechless at how beautiful everything looked. Now, the staff provided by Entwined Events was also amazing! We had a great DJ who kept the party going, a great bartender (who was even so sweet to hand me a glass of water before I was about to walk down the aisle- pre-wedding jitters!), an amazing chef that prepared a wonderful meal for all of our guests (which everyone loved), a floral team that prepared the most beautiful centerpieces I could have ever imagined, and a wait staff that surpassed any other! Not only did we feel like royalty that day, but our guests did as well. Any time we needed something during the day Anna or another staff member were there to take care of us and help us with all of our needs. Even our guests, if they needed something a staff member was there to assist. We even had a gluten-free guest and the chef offered to prepare a separate meal for that guest. If something went wrong on the day of, I still to this day do not know of it. It was a stress-free atmosphere for ourselves as well as our guests and it made our wedding day be filled with love and laughter by all guests. I mean seriously Entwined Events really took care of us, and we are so incredibly appreciative for all of the hard work that was put into making our day so special. If I could turn around and do it again there would be not one thing I would change! If you are looking for a be

    Where to begin - my entire day was magical thanks to the team at The Bedford Columns! Kira was our planner and was more than I could have ever asked for. She anticipated absolutely everything and was taking care of it all before I even thought to ask. The food was DELICIOUS. The DJ was fantastic. The flowers - WOW. We used Carla Bruce with Entwined Events and I literally cried when I saw my bouquet. Everything, and I mean everything, was perfect. Just to give you an idea of the level of service this place provides - they put a box of food and piece of your wedding cake in your room for after the reception because they know the bride and groom barely get to eat during everything. If I could do it all over again - I wouldn't change a thing. The staff is professional, which gave me such peace of mind, and the venue is absolutely stunning. Thank you doesn't begin to describe what they did for me on such an important day in my life.

    Kira was absolutely AMAZING! She made our big day absolutely perfect and worry-free. She was on top of everything from start to finish. She repeatedly checked on me, my husband and our bridal party from the beginning of the day to the end, catering to our every need. She handled the entire day with professionalism, promptness and a take-charge attitude... which kept me from having to worry about a single thing. She met every single one of my demanding expectations, and I would definitely recommend her to any bride as their coordinator. Bedford Columns is absolutely beautiful and I'm so glad I picked this venue AND had Kira as my bridal coordinator. Five stars in my book!

Beautiful facility! Gorgeous weddings. One of my brides had her reception at Bedford Columns. They were able to match her cake to the Elegance On The Avenue Custom Satin Bridal Bouquet I made for her. Very lovely!
