This venue is one of the premiere wedding venues in Wilmington and I know why. The level of service was exceptional- from Chere, the event coordinator I worked with, always finding a way to say "yes" to the chef creating a custom menu including re-creating a favorite recipe to the attentive catering staff who never left a glass empty. The venue itself was outstanding- we used the second story deck for both the ceremony and the reception. This deck overlooks the river; the Battleship North Carolina; the riverboat and all of historic downtown. We received a ton of compliments from our guests on the setting. We used the historic indoor space for cocktail hour and that was a hit too. I mentioned the chef before, but I definitely want to give a shout out for the food itself. Usually wedding food is mediocre, not here. Super tasty and lots of it. Our guests raved about the food! Lastly, it was nice to be able to utilize the dance floor, lounge furniture and lanterns which reduced the number of rental items to worry about. If you want top quality EVERYTHING and peace of mind, this the place.

128 South is located in historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina on the banks of the Cape Fear River. We offer a unique venue and reception space for your event including: wedding reception, luncheons, bridal or baby showers, business meetings, product presentations, product launch events, corporate dinners, professional association meetings, retirement parties, holiday parties, birthday parties, anniversary parties, art or fashion shows, etc.

Our open floor plan includes a 2nd floor mezzanine overlooking the central lower level.
