We transformed an industrial space, and turn it into a luxury dream wedding venue!
“Oneiro” in Greek means a dream!
Creating sophisticated wedding events in private spaces from scratch has always been and will always be the most fascinating part of our job as event designers and luxury wedding planners. It is truly exciting to design a wedding event and devise the whole scenario of the evening in a fresh new place with no reference to any precedent.
The dream of our beloved Foteini and Thanos was to throw a big party accommodating 300 guests in the parking lot of their industry. We had to perform a wedding venue transformation: take a simple, industrial space and turn it into a luxury wedding venue with numerous elaborate details, within only a few hours!
Dreams do come true!
We had the pleasure to design, plan and produce the wedding of an incredible couple, only a few kilometers off the elegant and highly popular town of Nafplio, one of the most –reasonably- visited places in Greece, all year round.
Every single choice the couple made was unique, starting from the meticulously curated wedding invitation which announced –apart from the very event- the color palette that the couple had selected. Our team carefully designed a luxury purple linen box with the word “oneiro” engraved in gold foil on its cover. On the inside, little dried purple roses and fresh deep green leaves were placed under the acrylic card, leaving each guest with an elevated experience.
The couple’s monogram -their initials in Greek letters- was a real gem, and they both loved it right from the first moment. We used it extensively and integrated it into several special constructions we created; in fact, we made two versions of it, in order to avoid repetition: one horizontal and one vertical. The horizontal version of the monogram resembles the infinity symbol, which stands for the infinite love the couple shares.
We designed an impressive entrance with their monograms and decorated it with wedding flowers, fairy lights and many candles. A special construction of mirrors gave a sense of a foyer to the entrance. There the guests had their welcome drinks and started their tour. The first stop on their tour was the dessert station. Three adjoining round tables made up a tailor-made piece of furniture. At its center we put a special floral arrangement with orchids, gold branches and greeneries and around it were all the desserts in colors of purple, green and gold, as well as fresh flowers in golden vases, wedding bonbons and three stunning wedding cakes. Wedding dessert and cake design is also part of the whole wedding design and planning journey – and therefore a part of what we do. We leave nothing uncurated. At the end of the –wedding- day, nothing can be more satisfying than watching all things discussed and designed during the whole process come to life –exactly as planned and dreamed.
For the dinner area we recruited a mixed set up; long tables placed in spokes leading to a dancing floor with trellises and flowers, and -for a change- round tables with unsymmetrical floral arrangements. The luxury wedding favors stole the spotlight, as they had been designed to be an integral part of the art de la table.
Hanging chandeliers and flowers accented the spectacular dancing floor, designed to accommodate the guests, who wouldn’t stop dancing until the early hours. Naturally, this night would not be complete without the live band playing traditional Greek music and cheering everyone up.
A luxury wedding reception in an unexpected place. This wedding day was true magic! For all of you that you may love bold tones, classic elegance with modern touches and many many personalized details this wedding will be an inspiration!!!
