128 South was the perfect venue for our wedding. The view overlooking the riverwalk downtown made for a beautiful ceremony and beautiful pictures. The bridal cottage was perfect and so convenient for myself and my a bridal party to get ready. My wedding coordinator Katie made sure to accommodate all of our needs. She created the exact vision for my wedding. I highly recommend 128 South!Sent on 10/29/2019

From the moment my husband and I walked into 128 South, we felt like we were visiting family. We felt comfortable and at ease from the initial planning stages to the food tasting to the ceremony and reception. Every single aspect was handled courteously and professionally. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. We highly recommend 128 South to anyone seeking a truly wonderful wedding experience. Our relationship with the staff at 128 South didn't end the morning after the reception as we left Stemmerman's Inn. We expect it to continue for a long time to come. Thanks ever so much JJ, Mira, Christie, Brian, and the rest of the staff at 128 South.Sent on 03/26/2012

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!!
