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.Sent on 07/08/2020

The literal best venue.
12/10 recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Wilmington. Bakery 105 was everything my husband and I could have asked for. We used Bakery 105 for our ceremony and reception, and used the Cottage across the street for the bride/bridesmaids to get ready. Katie and Jordan (the coordinators) worked with us to create a day that reflected everything we dreamed of and asked for. We wanted a wedding that was authentic, peaceful, and reflective of the love we share. It was that and SO much more. I delivered my decorations the day before the wedding, and Katie turned it into something out of a magazine. I had some pictures in my mind, but she blew my expectations away. When I walked into the venue, I felt so lucky, listened to, and loved. Sincerely, if you are looking for a picture perfect venue, an incredibly supportive team, and a day that reflects the personality of you and your partner -- choose Bakery 105.Sent on 02/24/2020

Could not be happier with our choice!
We really could not be happier with our choice to have our wedding ceremony and reception at Bakery 105. Katie was our day-of-coordinator and she was amazing from start to finish! Did I mention she helped me plan the wedding with me living in Florida?! When Katie was not available right away to answer my questions, Jordan and Jill were right there with answers. The entire day was so beautiful and perfect and everything ran so smoothly. The food was AMAZING as well! Thank you for all that you did to make our special day so incredible and one that we will truly remember forever!Sent on 01/28/2020

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!
