Perfect ceremony and reception from start to finish!
Our daughter looked at both 128 South and Bakery 105 first on her list during her search for a wedding venue! Once she had seen the Bakery she would not look any further...We booked that weekend without knowledge of the food, service, staff etc. Katie Swaim, our day of Coordinator, the bakery staff, and the menu selections did not disappoint. The team at the Bakery exceeded our expectations!!Sent on 05/14/2019

Perfect Wedding Day Venue
My husband and I cannot thank Bakery 105 enough! Katie & Jordan truly helped make my wedding dreams come true! Everyone who works with Bakery 105/128 South is extremely organized, efficient , and responsive. They were so efficiently with all of our other vendors, and helped make sure we had every detail and aspect of the timeline planned. I would highly recommend renting The Cottage on Orange through Bakery 105, as well. It was such a peaceful, little haven to get ready in for our special day! After our ceremony, we had a beautiful cocktail hour in the Bakery 105 courtyard, followed by a rustic/elegant wedding reception indoors. They also catered our food, which tasted delicious. Overall, we received so many compliments from our wedding venue. Everyone raved about Bakery 105, saying it was one of the most beautiful venues they'd ever seen, and I couldn't agree more. I would definitely recommend this venue!!!Sent on 07/08/2019

Wonderful Wedding and Reception
The whole staff at Bakery 105 are amazing. Anytime I would call to ask all the silly questions they were helpful and also let us stop by a few times to check out the space when family was in town. The food was amazing, we still have people raving about the fried chicken!Sent on 06/12/2019

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!
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 :)
Bakery 105 is hands down one of our favorite venues to work with! We've had the opportunity to do floral design at Bakery 105 for many weddings and its always so great to see how versatile the venue is. The staff is so wonderful to work with and the food is AMAZING! This is great venue for a ceremony, reception or any other event!
