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.

I just had my wedding there last night and have to say it was everything I wanted and more. They nailed everything perfectly. All the little small details tied in everything. I wish I could do it all over again! And the DJ did so freaking awesome. Executed to perfection.Sent on 10/21/2019

Stephanie · Getting married on 08/02/2022
Given the pandemic, we decided on the new and popular micro-wedding as we did not want to further delay our wedding. As if things weren't challenging enough, we chose to get married in the month of February, when it's cold and usually rains. We had to find a venue that was Covid compliant and somehow still kept us protected from the outdoor elements and this was it. The Century wedding venue came up with a micro-wedding package at their location next door called Nine3One. Communication was great, all of our multiple inquiries, concerns and doubts were always responded to in a timely manner. Allison was our main contact person and she was always very pleasant to speak to even when we felt a little lost and anxious. It was hard for me to put into words what I wanted the setup to look like as far as the decorations, but let me tell you, they far exceeded our expectations. Everything was absolutely beautiful. My family said it was the best wedding food they had ever had, and our cake was so good we will return on our anniversary to order another. Allison took control of the flow of things during the whole event and it was nothing less than perfect. If we had the opportunity to do this again with any venue we would definitely still choose The Century. I don't know many people who can honestly say that their wedding day was perfect and went as planned, but I can! Thank you to all of the staff at The Century for making this happen for us. We will recommend you every chance we get.Sent on 03/15/2021

Beautiful and inclusive venue
This venue is so beautiful and its all inclusive!! The only vendors you need to book for your wedding is your photographer and MUA. My husband and I found them about three months before our wedding date 05-20-2021 and they made our dream wedding come true! We had a party of 28 and only celebrated for 3 hours. We were very pleased and happy with the outcome of our wedding, Allison and the team did a great job!Sent on 06/02/2021
The Century's reply:Thank you so much for your review Va! We are so happy you found us and that we were able to host your special day. We wish you an abundance of happiness and good health!
