    Our wedding coordinator at the Century Center was absolutely wonderful. She was very responsive and professional the entire time. Because of her timeliness and responsiveness, planning the reception was one of the least stressful parts of the wedding planning process. They really had their act together. (Our ceremony was at another location.) I would definitely recommend the Century Center to anyone getting married in the South Bend area.
