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 came true!!!

Wonderful Wedding Experience
Now, let me turn your attention to the culinary genius, Chef Root. Our tasting session was an absolute highlight (highly recommended!), and from that moment, we were captivated by our wedding menu. Our guests are still raving about the food! I was adamant about steering clear of typical banquet fare, and Chef Root masterfully crafted a personalized culinary experience for us. He made our event feel uniquely special, even bringing to life a dessert my husband had long dreamed of having at our wedding. His commitment and talent were truly an honor to experience.
I must also highlight the incredible work of Leticia, the talented florist who curated the most stunning flowers for our special day. She's an absolute artist. Not only did she bring my vision to life, but she also transformed a collection of brooches I'd been gathering for years into a breathtaking bouquet. Her attention to detail, including the thoughtful incorporation of my late father, was incredibly touching. Leticia's dedication to making our day unforgettable was remarkable.
Every individual we had the pleasure of working with at The Century and Nine3One was exceptional. I genuinely can't speak highly enough of our experience. I loved it so much that if I could, I'd relive it all over again. Without a doubt, any future events in my life will be hosted here. I've been enthusiastically recommending The Century and Nine3One to everyone I know. Trust me, booking your event here will be a decision you won't regret.

The planning process even through Covid was straight forward and Allison made it a breeze. So easy that I often thought am I doing everything I need to be?? Lol.
