The Century House made our dream wedding come true! I can not say enough wonderful things about them. They were on top of everything from the beginning of our wedding planning. Brittany answered all of our questions quickly and made the planning process so easy. I knew everything was in good hands with them setting up and taking care of the decorations and food. The room looked beautiful. They used everything we brought in to do center pieces and made the tables look perfect. I couldn't have been happier with how they came out. There were candles everywhere and the room just glowed. The food was delicious and I wanted to eat everything! there was so much to choose from and it was all amazing. We had our own reception with the bridal party, and the room we were in was beautiful. We had all of the appetizers and a drink station with our signature drink. The waitstaff made a point of checking in with all of the tables and making sure the guests and ourselves had everything we needed all night long. There was always someone around to answer a question or get you something. They had a smile on their face and treated everyone with kindness. I can't think of a better place to have a wedding. It was perfect from beginning to end. I loved it so much I would do it all over again!

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 recently had our wedding at the Century House. We had our ceremony in the outside tent, the cocktail hour in the hotel and the reception in the white ballroom. I cannot say enough about how incredible everyone at the Century House was. Our wedding coordinator, Phil Brown, kept us on track from the beginning and was always willing to help with suggestions and work with any crazy ideas I threw at him. We had multiple meetings with him to go over the details and he was always calm and easy going which helped me a lot. As the wedding date got closer I emailed him numerous times and he responded right away and anything that I wanted changed Phil was incredibly flexible to make our wedding day memorable. The day of the wedding weather was iffy and Phil kept me very calm and had a backup plan just in case. He reassured me that everything was fine and kept checking the weather hourly. In the end the weather turned out great and the wedding even better. On the day of the wedding our wedding captain Myla was a savior. We had a dress issue with the maid of honor and she came in and rescued us in a big way. Everyone was so wonderful and so easy going and helped make our day perfect. Also a huge thank you to our banquet manager Stephanie, she and Myla did an amazing job during the reception. The food was outstanding and they made sure I had my choice of wine always at hand. I cannot recommend them enough for anyone thinking of having their wedding day at the Century House. They truly went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and I felt that our special day was as important to them as it was to us.

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.
