Dear Lila, Vanda, Despina and all at Heliotopos

We hope you are all well. Nick and I are still trying to get back to normality after such a brilliant wedding and holiday and we wish we were back in Santorini. Nick and I would just like to thank you all for making our wedding day so special.We were so impressed with everything as were our guests.We could not have asked for anything more.

From the first moment we met with Vanda to go through the plans we knew that we had chosen the right company. Vanda went through every single detail to ensure that the wedding was exactly as we wanted. We were so impressed with the practical suggestions that were made and the advice that was given. Everyone at Heliotopos was friendly and helpful.

The view from Heliotopos was spectacular and we will remember it for the rest of our lives as will our family and friends. The flowers were amazing and the service was beautiful. We enjoyed the whole experience so much more than we could have anticipated and we cant stop looking at our photographs.

We would also like to thank you for suggesting that we have our reception at Pygros as it was a brilliant location for a party of our size. The food was absolutely beautiful and the decoration was exactly how we wanted.All of our guests commented on how nice the food was and what a great venue it was. We were also impressed with the fire works and thought the DJ was great. We all enjoyed his choice of music and danced all night.

Overall, the wedding was spectacular and the best day of our lives and this was all thanks to your planning and organisation and we cannot thank you enough for all that you did. We would highly recommend Heliotopos Weddings to anyone who is thinking of getting married in Greece. You really did take the stress out of everything and ensured that we enjoyed every minute of the day.

Thank you so much. We hope to return to Santorini in the future to renew our vows and it would be lovely to see you all again.

Dear Lila, Vanda, and Yiota!

A year ago we set out on a voyage to get married. The big question was: which location would fit to us and our wishes. After going through several countries and many local venues, we finally ended up in Heliotopos on Santorini.

This decision was the best decision we could have made. Furthermore it even topped our expectations!

The professional, and always friendly care, made us feel completely safe that our visions and expectations would become reality, and they did. Starting from the wonderful scenery, to the venue, the support, the flowers, the decoration, the superb food, the service, the music, photographer, videographer, musicians, and the “replaced” civil servant ;)), and all the small details, made the wedding an unforgettable event not only for us but also for our guests.

We want to thank you for making this the best day of our life! (after of course the birth of our daughter Mia – “Zouzouni”)

Chances are very high that we will return for our vow renewal!

Best wishes,

Dagmar, Mia, Robert

My dearest Lila, I don’t know how to begin to say thank you properly for bringing to life the vision I had for our wedding, for walking me through every step of the planning, for assuaging my anxieties (since we both know that like you, I not only have very definite ideas of what I want, but I am also a perfectionist!) and for doing all of this in such an organized and efficient manner while at the same time pouring all of your time and heart into our wedding. I feel silly calling you our “wedding planner” when I now feel like I have extended my family in Greece!

I remember the first email I sent you inquiring about your services.. I still have that email! It was a few pages long detailing everything we wanted, from the location and decor to the music to the boutonnieres! When you sent me back an email less than 24 hours later responding so confidently and eloquently to each and every single request I’d made, I knew we were a match made in heaven! Especially for our wedding, for 120 guests, both Greek and American, at the Grand Resort Lagonissi in Athens, let’s just say that I still have no idea how you juggled our intricate wedding with even one other wedding! But, as soon as I described to you what we wanted, maybe it’s your artist’s instincts that kicked in, but it’s almost as if you had the same vision in your mind as I had for our wedding and it was happily ever after from that point on. I know many brides experience a great amount of stress while planning their weddings. I was planning a wedding in Greece from Chicago, and the most stressful thing I encountered was travelling once we landed, I knew we were in good hands!!!!

I will always treasure that special time we spent together, you, Niko, and I driving around Athens to meet with every vendor and go over every detail the week before the wedding. Our wedding was in one of the most beautiful places in the world, but it would have been absolutely impossible for us to have such a beautiful wedding without your help. The funny thing is everything went so smoothly because of your hard work that I think people failed to realize just how much planning went into every detail!!!  And, we were lucky enough to visit you during our honeymoon on what I think is THE most beautiful place on earth Santorini. As first-generation Greek-Americans, Greece has always held a special place in our hearts. And after having our wedding and honeymoon there, it is even more special to us as are you thank you for everything Lila!! We love you and can’t wait to see you in a year hopefully! I apologize to your 2007 brides, but I am going to pull you away from them so we can share a frappe and reminisce!

And thank you to Katerina and Yiota and everyone else who helped with our wedding for working so hard to make sure our day was flawless and special!!

Love,

Despina & Niko
