We are three weeks in to 2015 and find ourselves overwhelmed by nods, nominations, and awards. To say “our cup runeth over” is truly an understatement.  We kicked off January 1st with a nomination for “Best Wedding Venue” in Encore’s “Best of 2015” race  (Voting ends January 26th…just in case any locals were wondering.) Followed by the early January announcement that we received  The Knot’s “Best of Weddings 2015” award.   The Knot 2015 Best of WeddingsAnd, rounding out the excitement…we were awarded the Wedding Wire “Couple’s Choice” Award 2015.  Phew!

ww-2015The The Knot and Wedding Wire acknowledgements hold special meaning for us since they are based on the opinions of our past clients who offer insight into their “real wedding” experiences with 128 South and Bakery 105. We are ever-grateful for those who entrust us with the details of their very special day.

Featured in the Winter/Spring edition of Southern Bride & Groom you will find 128 South showcased in the “Apple of My Eye” photo shoot along with a few of our favorite local wedding creatives like One Belle Bakery and Fiore Fine Flowers.  (Good company to keep.) The inspired color-palette beautifully compliments the 128 South venue.

Between the SB&G “Destination Wedding” feature and last Saturday’s Courtyards & Cobblestones event, brides have a wealth of inspiration at their finger tips.

{1.17.15} Saturday marked our fourth year participating in the Courtyards & Cobblestones venue tour. The “sold out” event showcased seven downtown venues including both 128 South and Bakery 105…each “dolled up” for 500 or so brides to “experience”. We are awed by the tremendous feedback we received about both the venues and the food and drinks created by the terribly talented culinary team of our full-service catering division at 128 South.

We look forward to what the next 11 months hold for our little corner in Downtown Wilmington.128S - C&C 2015
