“Loved Centennial. The space is amazing, large enough to feel lush but earthy enough to feel intimate. The staff know their stuff and put any worries to ease. Getting married in Covid changed a few things, but we really worked to make it as special as possible within the regulations; the team was both professional but accommodating. The food was delicious, service on point, wine was perfect, the setting was divine. We had a winter wedding, so to have the fireplace on the inside was beautiful!” - Amy G.

“We had our reception at Centennial Vineyards, and our events coordinator was amazing and beyond helpful! We were very lucky to be able to have her help. The set-up was all very easy, and we didn't need a lot of decorations for the venue. It's all very personal, and the chef came out to talk with us, and with the vineyard, we were able to do wine tastings with them as well. All the staff were very happy and friendly on the night, and everything just ran so smoothly!” - Lucinda M.
