The Century is a chic, urban venue located in Modesto, California. Built in the early 1900s, this historic building has exposed brick walls, tall ceilings, beautiful crystal chandeliers and gorgeous acacia wood floors. Couples looking for a modern venue with a touch of vintage glamour need to look no further than The Century.
Facilities and Capacity
At The Century couples can accommodate up to 275 guests for a reception only, and up to 175 for a ceremony and a reception. In addition to the grand ballroom there’s also an amazing patio with a spectacular brick wall and vintage mirrors and exclusive VIP suites on the premises.
We do have a second event space available called The Alcove at Nine3One. This space is located next door to The Century and has a max capacity of 65 guests. This space is a more affordable option for couples with smaller guest counts.
The Century is owned by Erin Doran who has been in the wedding industry since 1999. She along with her experienced staff will make sure your wedding is flawless from start to finish. Their services include:
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

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.Sent on 10/01/2019

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!!!Sent on 11/20/2018
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!
