History
The Century was built in 1912 as a theater by William R. Mensinger. It was dedicated in 1913 by Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance.” Unfortunately, a fire ruined it later that year, but it was rebuilt and rededicated in 1914. It lasted until 1934 when it was eventually turned into retail shops. It’s been the magnificent wedding venue it is today since 2014.

    Dream wedding

    It was a beautiful place to get married. This place was a gem, I never knew a place like this existed in Modesto. All I can say is, I really had my dream wedding. They take care of everything. They offer full service, from staffing, decor, flowers, music, bar, security, planner, and on-site suite. They made it so easy I really didn’t do anything. Plus, they offer financing. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Nailed my vision for my wedding!!!

    I had both my wedding and reception at The Century and I can't thank Erin Doran, Trina and the Century team enough for making my wedding so perfect!! They nailed my vision and accommodated our requests perfectly!! We wanted both Italian and Indian food and they found the best vendors...I'm still getting rave reviews from our guests about the food!! I wanted a very regal wedding and they all listened and executed my vision perfectly (I asked for lots of bling and king and queen chairs)!! I couldn't have asked for a better experience...they exceeded all expectations!! I highly recommend The Century. I also went through Erin to book our honeymoon at Sandals and had a wonderful experience. Erin even threw in Club Mobay as a wedding gift. We can't thank them enough for everything!!!

    The Century's reply:

    Thank so much Dana for your kind words! We are so happy that your wedding day was just as you imagined. Wishing you a long and happy marriage!
