    Amazing experience

    We had such a good experience working with Katie (the wedding coordinator) and the crew at Bakery 105/128 South. We had our wedding set and planned out and then the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Katie did such a great job working through countless variations of what the day would look like with us, trying to figure out what would be allowed during all of the restrictions, while still trying to have our dream wedding. She more than succeeded our day at 128 South was perfect! The food was amazing, as were the bartenders and staff that worked at the event. Katie more than exceeded our expectations as a planner during the whole process, but especially the day of, she took care of so many things that we didn't even think about- her attention to detail is top notch! I would highly recommend Bakery 105/128 South and would work with them again.

    Our once-in-a-lifetime event was PERFECT!

    November 13. 2020

    On October 2, 2020 we hosted a Rehearsal Dinner for 55 guests at Bakery 105. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of our event! Planning an event during a pandemic, in a city where you do not live, just weeks prior to your event date could have been totally overwhelming—if not impossible! The owners and staff at Bakery 105 made it seem easy and they helped us create an evening for our family and friends that was exactly as we had envisioned!

    The team at Bakery 105 is extremely organized and has excellent, ongoing communication with their clients. We were able to quickly make decisions on all food and bar options and on vendors needed to provide additional services such as linens and music. They coordinated all of the work with the various vendors to be sure everything was delivered and available as planned. They even provided maps of available nearby parking options that we were able to include in the invitations for our guests.

    They were very aware of our need for safety during the pandemic. Katie helped us in planning how to serve the hors oeuvres safely. Rather than having self-serve stations, she worked with us to have our selections prepared so they could be served individually on skewers and these were passed by the servers. We chose The Charleston Buffet for dinner and our guests loved the food! They raved about the fried chicken and both the Eastern and Western BBQs! Many of them went back to the buffet for seconds. The servers at the buffet also helped to keep the environment safe. I was pleased to learn that Bakery 105 ALWAYS has servers for their buffets, rather than allowing guests to serve themselves--- not just during the pandemic. We were able to select which beers and wines were served. The bar service was quick and efficient and they continued to provide table service during the dinner. We also liked the option of having the bar service priced per person and by the number of hours for our event. This allowed us to manage the costs well.

    Bakery 105 also arranged for additional staff to sanitize the restrooms after each guest’s visit. They worked with us to safely design an indoor environment with appropriate spacing to maximize safety.

    Our event was beautiful and very well-run! Bakery 105 had developed a time line that included all parts of our planned evening’s activities and were available to manage any changes as needed. They provided all of the necessary equipment for background music and a wireless microphone for the toasts! The lighting and décor were perfect for our event—all we had to add were the table decorations and linens. We were able to enjoy the outdoor patio during the cocktail hour and our photographer was able to capture some wonderful photos or our family and friends during this time.

    If you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime special event, you want it to be perfect! Bakery 105 provided this for us!

  • Event Excellence Light And Sound Wedding Decor & Lighting

    The bakery is a fantastic venue with a wonderful staff to be around! what more is there to say about this rustic venue in the heart of downtown Wilmington! As a lighting designer, I couldn't hope for a better venue to work in. The brick walls to the exposed beams and plenty of power all around the room makes me a happy guy!

  • Marcus Anthony Photography Wedding Photographers

    Absolutely GORGEOUS and unique venue in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Fits a LARGE wedding guest list and has both indoor and outdoor options. The original acid washed brick in the bakery is a photographer's dream :)
