Christie Brogan, 128 South & Bakery 105
Christie Brogan is co-founder of 128 South and Bakery 105 – two wedding venues and her full-service catering company located in picturesque Wilmington, North Carolina. Christie’s passion for “all things wedding” has shaped the direction of her 15+ year career with 128 South and Bakery 105 celebrating their 7th year of successful weddings and events. Owning not just one but two full-service wedding venues is the ultimate Project Management job with budgets, details, vendors, resources, and timelines to coordinate. “There is a gravity to the business of weddings” she says, “we are constantly discussing how important the wedding day is for each client. There are no do-overs.” The company was founded with one goal in mind…to make each and every wedding truly memorable. 128 South’s team of event coordinators, chefs, and operations crew works tirelessly to exceed each client’s expectations. Honored to be included as a Masterclass Teacher, this self-described “wedding geek” is excited to share her knowledge and experience with couples around the world. Ms. Brogan recently launched an online platform helping budding entrepreneurs take the “next steps” towards fulfilling their own business aspirations. Texas born, this entrepreneurship professional graduated from The University of Texas at Austin.
Christie is a proud Wedding Master at Wedding Masterclass teaching you about wedding venues.
