    Fantastic Experience

    We had the best experience with all of the staff- especially Davis, our day of coordinator. Davis made sure that not only my husband and I were taken care of throughout the whole process, but that our guests were taken care of as well. He contacted every vendor prior to and made sure everything flowed the day of. My guests afterwards were saying, “I want his information for my future wedding, Davis is excellent and so professional and fun!” and we couldn’t agree more. The venue was beautiful. We had 60 total and it felt perfect but can hold more if need be. We had our ceremony in the courtyard and held our reception in the building and it was perfect.

    Amazing, beautiful day!

    We were so thrilled when we booked Bakery 105 for our wedding- I mean have you seen the whitewashed brick?? 😍
    The event team was so nice and super flexible when we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID. Our coordinator, Jordan (also with the Bakery 105/128 South team) was so sweet and she went above and beyond to help make our day super magical.

    The wedding of Alison Baxter and Brian Theiss April 23, 2022 Alison and Brian knew right away this was going to be the perfect venue for thierwedding

    Alison and Brian knew right away during their first meeting in the Fall of 2020, with the staff at Bakery that this was the perfect fit for their wedding reception. Our first meeting with Katie Swain, was wonderful. Clearly, she and her team are friendly, fun and organized! I felt totally at ease and was quite certain this was going to be an incredible day and it was.

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 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 :)

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!
