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.

    I had my wedding there in June and it was beyond AMAZING. I feel like I didn't have to do anything. I dont remember ever stressing off anything. The staff took care of just about everything. They lay out the times you need to set up appointments for things and like food tasking, cake tasting and DJ. The flower team they have is amazing and put my vision together better than I imagined they could have. All my guest raved over how beautiful everything was and how good the food was and how effortless everything looked. I have zero complaints and appreciate the whole team at The Century for holding my hand through an experience I have never been through before and being extremely patient with me with all my questions and last minute adjustments. When you book this venue you also get a hard working team of people with it. That combination alone makes this venue work EVERY PENNY!.

    The impeccable detail was insanely wonderful! Erin is remarkable and her staff are amazing as well. I am thrilled that this is the venue my daughter chose for her wedding and rehearsal because it enabled me to give her the wedding of her dreams!!!
