Getting married at The Century House in Latham, NY was one of the best decision I've ever made. I could not be happier with my experience. First off, their entire property is beautiful, top to bottom, and every room about outside space provides the perfect backdrop for pictures. On the topic of beauty, the staff has an amazing eye for the decorating a wedding. My wedding was Halloween themed, and we decided to hand boxes and bags of family Halloween decorations over to the Century house to use as they saw fit in the ballroom. When they were done, I was floored! I never knew a Halloween theme could be so elegant! The staff turned the Main Ballroom into a Halloween wonderland that left us all in tears. Walking down the aisle was the most magical moment of my life. There is not a thing I would change. The staff are not only amazing decorators, they are extremely accommodating. If you need anything, they are right there to help with a friendly attitude. In addition,The Century House is also very conveniently located near the Albany Airport. They provide a shuttle service for the hotel guests, which really helped out my family. Lastly, the food is so delicious. All of my guests were raving about it. Anyone planning a wedding should seriously consider The Century House. You will not be disappointed!

We got married this past weekend at The Century House, and it was absolutely amazing and picture-perfect. From our very first meeting with Phil, I knew we would be in good hands throughout the process. He remembered every little detail and even helped me order an ice sculpture two weeks before our wedding, so I could surprise my husband on the big day! He answered every email and phone call throughout our planning process, and anticipated all of our needs. Even though it rained on our big day, Phil did not let that ruin any of our plans. He quickly moved all of the decor that the florist had set up outside, including an arch decorated with ferns and orchids, into the ballroom. Every emergency that we had on that day was met with speed and efficiency - our bridal captain Melissa even sent a seamstress to our cocktail hour to fix my husband's vest! Phil, Melissa, and all of the staff at the Century House were so warm, welcoming, and helpful during the whole weekend. Our stay was amazing – the food was delicious, the rooms were comfortable, and spacious. All of our guests traveled from out of town and everyone who stayed there kept telling us how wonderful their stay was and that they will come back when they return to the Albany area – and we will too!

I have photographed weddings at The Century House for many years, its a beautiful venue with great food and a fantastic staff. I love working there, its a beautiful spot for photos and always a pleasure to work there.

The Century House in Latham is very deceiving. Upon entering, you go from one beautiful room to another. We had so many lovely spots to choose from to photograph our bride and groom, we couldn't decide where to start! Leslie and staff were very accommodating; prior to the wedding, Leslie met with me to show me where the reception would be, point out areas in the restaurant and hotel where we were free to shoot pictures, and even took me outside and gave me suggestions on various locations. The food was exceptional; the staff took such good care of us and the DJ's during the dinner service. I would love to photograph more weddings here!!

This is a wonderful place to have any type of wedding or event. Many different rooms to choose from, great food, friendly & experienced staff! Definitely check them out.

I've had the pleasure of photographing a few weddings at the Century House in the past couple of years and I have to say it is one of my favorite venues to shoot at. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the decor and food is always on point. So if you're looking for a great wedding venue, look no further. Book the Century House today! You'll be glad you did! Scott Rougia CAJ Photography
