    A Great team to work with!

    The staff at South 128, especially Katie and Rueger were fabulous! They were friendly, flexible to changes and pro active in making the day run flawlessly.

    Incredible Venue and Food!

    128 South is truly amazing! We booked 128 South because the view from the back deck is amazing!! 128 South went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted, even in the middle of a pandemic! They were so helpful when we had to move our wedding date and even helped us personalize our menu. We also used the Cottage on Orange Street to get ready in and it was the perfect spot to get pampered on our special day. I cannot say enough incredible things about 128 South!

    Excellent Venue

    We hosted the rehearsal dinner for our son at 128 South last weekend. Jordan and Katie were so very helpful from the beginning. Their expertise with all the planning (floor plan, food selection, and bar set up) was perfect. They did everything to make sure the event ran smoothly, and no detail was too small. Jordan was always available to answer all my many questions, and did so in a very timely manner. The food could not have been more delicious. We had a duo plate of tenderloin and crab cake which was cooked perfectly. Reugar, the on-site manager for the evening, as well as the servers, and bartenders were extremely professional and very amenable to any and all requests. I can not say enough about this venue. It was the perfect spot to celebrate a very special night.

    Perfect Day

    The day was prefect from start to finish and better than we could have hoped for or expected. Katie and the staff were so helpful and attentive throughout the whole process and everything happened flawlessly the whole day. We received so many compliments from our guests on the beautiful venue, staff, food and atmosphere! We wish we could relive the day!

    9/19/2020 Best Day Ever

    128 South was the very first venue we viewed and knew it was the one for us! We are so glad we chose 128 South as they made our big day the best it could possibly be, especially during these times with covid. Despite all that Covid has affected in the world today, our wedding day was not one of them and we thank you for that! Our wedding happened just as we planned and even more. Katie and the staff were absolutely outstanding and made our big day more than we could ever imagine. From the space it self, the food, dedicated time spent setting up, making all accommodations needed, 128 South was a blessing. We will never forget our big day 9/19/2020, thank you!

    Amazing venue, amazing team!

    I had my rehearsal dinner here for a group of 25 and it was such a perfect night! Jordan and Katie were a pleasure to work with and executed everything perfectly. They were so on top of everything and made planning extremely easy. The wait staff and bartenders were so friendly and accommodating. This is the perfect venue with historic Wilmington charm set right in the downtown area. Would love to host another private event here!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    Truth be told, I actually booked 128 South sight unseen since I was traveling from Pennsylvania for our wedding, and it was the best decision I could have made! I could not have been happier with the way my wedding at 128 South turned out! Katie and Jordan and the team at 128 South were incredible to work with throughout the whole wedding process, especially in the middle of COVID-19. They were so flexible and accommodating and put me so at ease in the midst of all the uncertainly surrounding our wedding day. They truly wanted to make my wedding day the best possible day that it could be. The venue is gorgeous and was absolutely perfect for my intimate gathering! The food was amazing, and all the staff were so professional and helpful! The theme of my wedding was simply elegant, and that is truly what 128 South was. You will not regret booking this venue!! They helped to make my wedding truly the best day of my life!!

    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.

    Highly Recommend

    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!

    Beautiful wedding venue

    So much of me wishes that we got to experience this venue to its fullest potential but the pandemic had other plans. I will say that the venue was far more perfect on our wedding day then I thought it would be during this time. Magnificent venue for love.

    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.

    Professional, Flexible, Great Venues, Could not have been better

    128 South and Bakery 105’s owners and staff could not have been better. The venue was perfect, the food was excellent (guests are still talking about it a month later) and did I mention the owners/staff are awesome?

    We originally booked bakery 105 and loved the space. Then Covid-19 hit and things went completely off course. There were so many twists and turns there isn’t enough space here to write, but the owners/staff did an amazing job and stayed with us through date changes and Covid restrictions. Their flexibility and professionalism saved our event and turned it into the dream we all had. We ended up at 128 South and had a perfect wedding.

    The space is intimate and beautifully done. Outdoor patio overlooking the river and battleship was a perfect backdrop. Would highly recommend either Bakery 105 or 128 South.

    Our "Perfect" Day

    Where do I start? There aren't enough positive things I can say about 128 South and its team. Our original wedding was 5/9 at Bakery 105 (their sister site). We had to postpone because of COVID-19 so Mira and team worked with us to find a new date that fit with all our vendors. We thought we were all set, but the pandemic had other ideas. Bakery 105 was still closed and the limit on gatherings meant we had to reduce our guest list substantially. Mira worked with us to move our event to 128 South,
    and she worked with our vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly. We were *finally* married on July 31st, in a small ceremony at 128 South. It was wonderful down to the very last detail. I honestly can't thank 128 enough for making our day special. After all the cancellations and postponements and menu changes, it came together perfectly. We will always remember our big day and how much 128 South helped us make it happen. PS: Rent the cottage if it's available!

    Katie was my fairy Godmother!

    From start to finish my experience with 128 South was unflawed. They were so responsive, so helpful, and genuinely so excited for Alec and I. The venue is absolutley BEAUTIFUL and all our guests kept raving on how delicious the food was. My best decision was hiring Katie as our day of coordinator. She was MADE for this job! Anything I asked or needed she went above and beyond to take care of. 128 South made all my wedding dreams come true!

    November Wedding

    128 South was perfect for our wedding of about 90 people! It's already a beautiful venue so it doesn't require much to dress it up. Everyone we worked with was always very friendly, responsive, and flexible with any request that we made. And the food was fantastic! The only thing to bear in mind during planning is that the outdoor deck is not ADA accessible, so have a plan if you have guests with mobility challenges. Can't say enough nice things, would definitely recommend them!

    rescued wedding

    Hurricane Florence destroyed the original wedding venue, then we lost my son, the brides brother, with only 4 months to go till the wedding date (invitations were already sent out). We found 128 and talked with Katie (as best we could through tears), She accepted this impossible mission and took care of everything from there. The event was amazing, the venue beautiful and did I mention how amazing our wedding planner Katie was? She was picking up all the loose ends, making sure everyone was fed, happy and details were taken care of. She and her staff turned our hopes into reality. Despite all our heartache, Katie turned our chaos into a magical event. Thank you 128 and our amazing wedding planner Katie!

    Better than we could have imagined

    I'm not even sure where to start about our great experience with 128 South. We booked them initially because of the beauty of the venue. Its historic elements and vibes were exactly what we wanted and minimized the amount of decorations we needed to add. They were even more beautiful in the evening during our reception seeing the sun come through the windows and shine off the stained glass. We also loved that 128 South does its own catering. While some people may not prefer this, it was perfect for us because we didn't have to worry about reaching out to other caterers (yay, less wedding stress), AND the food was AMAZING!! Y'all, seriously I just want to eat there regularly it was so good. Katie and Jordan, our coordinators at 128, were extremely helpful and there whenever we needed them whether through phone or email, for questions and concerns big or small. And perhaps the best part was that on the wedding day I didn't have to worry about a thing. Literally, they had it all handled, and their impeccable planning of the flow and prep for the day were seamless. Everyone told me before the wedding "something will go wrong-big or small-just accept it and move on", but NOTHING went wrong, and I truly believe it was because of the great team at 128 South. Couldn't have imagined a better venue or team to help us on the best day of our lives.

    128 South was a total DREAM!

    I had the most wonderful experience with 128 South. I am a full time law student and truly did not have time to plan a wedding. Thank goodness for Katie. She helped me from day one, until after the wedding concluded. Actually! She helped us hike our wedding gifts up to our hotel and even the morning after the wedding helped us retrieve items we had lost on our own. 128 South makes your wedding day about you. I appreciated that most. There are so many opinions going around, and so many family members ... but never once was our day about anyone but us. The food was impeccable and the alcohol was served professionally and fast. My guests never found themselves waiting in line for a drink. Do yourself a favor and have your wedding here. I can’t express how much joy our wedding brought us, and I know choosing 128 south was a huge part of what brought us that joy.

    The absolute best!

    There is no way possible we could ever repay Katie & the 128 South team! My goodness, they were a gem to work with. As out-of-town brides, we didn't have a clue where to begin, but with Katie as our day-of-coordinator we always felt in good hands. Jordan & Katie were always so professional and also realistic with us. We never felt like we couldn't ask even the silliest of questions. Our guests raved about the food (Charleston Touch) and the service everyone was provided. We both come from a long line of personalities and the 128 South made both families feel at home. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with these professionals. You won't regret it!

    The Perfect Charming Venue

    We LOVED our wedding at 128 South. We only had a 5 month engagement, and our coordinator (Katie from 128 South) was super responsive and helped make everything happen with ease. The venue itself is so charming. Our guest list was only 70 people and it felt like the perfect, intimate size. The brick, white banisters, stained glass, and stunning chandeliers allowed us to keep decor to a minimum. It's already beautiful!! Thanks, 128 South!
