    9/19/2020 Best Day Ever

    128 South was the very first venue we viewed and knew it was the one for us! We are so glad we chose 128 South as they made our big day the best it could possibly be, especially during these times with covid. Despite all that Covid has affected in the world today, our wedding day was not one of them and we thank you for that! Our wedding happened just as we planned and even more. Katie and the staff were absolutely outstanding and made our big day more than we could ever imagine. From the space it self, the food, dedicated time spent setting up, making all accommodations needed, 128 South was a blessing. We will never forget our big day 9/19/2020, thank you!

    Amazing venue, amazing team!

    I had my rehearsal dinner here for a group of 25 and it was such a perfect night! Jordan and Katie were a pleasure to work with and executed everything perfectly. They were so on top of everything and made planning extremely easy. The wait staff and bartenders were so friendly and accommodating. This is the perfect venue with historic Wilmington charm set right in the downtown area. Would love to host another private event here!

  • Atrium by Ligon Flynn Banquet Halls

    We love being a block away from 128 South Events. We often share clients with 128 South or the Bakery 105. Couples will have their ceremony and champagne toast in the Atrium courtyard. A quick walk up the street for guests gets them to Cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. It is always a pleasure working with them in the neighborhood !

  • High Performance Lighting & Power Wedding Decor & Lighting

    The people at 128 South are so very easy to work with and very accommodating to our events. We highly recommend them to our clients!!
