Bedford, VA- The former Runk and Pratt nursing home got a makeover to now suit the needs of brides or party planners. The Bedford Columns is celebrating their grand opening this week, and the owners say they modeled the interior of the building after Buckingham Palace.
It's taken them a year and a half to complete the project because they've added a ballroom, bridal suites and a movie theater. They already have a few bookings.
"I think that having the Bedford Columns is going to have a tremendous impact not only on bringing wedding business here and bringing the wedding community into the Bedford area. But, it is also just providing local businesses to entertain," said Katie Lester, estate manager for Bedford Columns.
The Bedford Columns also offers Bed and Breakfast services. You can get more information on their website or by calling 434-610-1456.
