Set among the Cape Fear River, 128 South is a quaint venue in downtown Wilmington. Their staff is professional and knowledgable, giving brides a calm that not many venues do. They handle all your food and beverage, both of which are incredible! We are so grateful to the 128 South team for the peace of mind they give their clients and we love bringing their events to life through design and florals! You'll love 128 South!
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 !
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!!
