    Best venue and wedding team around

    The Century House and their wedding manager Phil helped to make my wedding beautiful and the day run perfectly. We had the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception on site. The food for both events was amazing and I have been getting texts saying how great all of the food was. Phil worked with all of my vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page and that everything was set up and ready to go before ceremony time. There was a staff member around me all night make sure my husband and I had everything we needed.

    Venue for intimate wedding and large reception

    I can't say enough good things about The Century House. The food was amazing, the pricing is fair and the hotel is beautiful. But what really stands out is those who help put the weddings together. Phil, Rachel and Myla are literally the best in the business. Phil, the wedding coordinator was so wonderful and flexible with us as we navigated Covid and Rachel and Myla were the sweetest and most wonderful to have around. They all made sure everything went smoothly and that we had everything we needed.

    The Century House's reply:

    Thank you Marissa and Ed. You will forever be a part of our CH family. Love wins for sure and if anyone doubts it they just need to spend 5 minutes with the 2 of you and your families. Here's to many years of love and happiness for you all.

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.
