Perfect for us!
I couldn’t ask for a more flexible and understanding venue! The Century house staff were seriously soooo nice considering the pandemic and the extra precautions we had to take. The day of my wedding there was always someone right there to anticipate my needs and to ask if I needed help with anything. The wedding and reception was all in one place which was super convenient for guests. The hotel rooms were also really nice since they had just been renovated. Phil was my “wedding planner” and he was super sweet and patient throughout the whole process. Highly recommend for an affordable wedding day!Sent on 04/23/2021

Some of my favorite weddings to photograph have happened at The Century House. They know how to take care of their couples, and they are professional but fun on a wedding day. Two thumbs up!
The Century House KNOW how to take care of their clients, couples and guests for any event. After shooting weddings there for over 20 years now, and living so close to their establishment, PLUS getting to know their crew, I feel like family. I can safely say if I were to do my wedding all over again. I'd have it at The Century House.
