Who says backyard weddings are boring? With the help of Pompon Story Events, Sofia and Antonis transformed their Greek farmhouse into a stunning wedding venue that hosted over 500 guests! After tying the knot at a local church, the newlyweds made their way to their home for an unforgettable celebration.
The couple pulled their blue, black, white, and gold color palette from the one they use in their own home and incorporated it in all of the carefully curated decor. The outdoor space was complete with a black marble bar, simple yet elegant florals arranged by Amaryllis, a chessboard-inspired dance floor, and two oversized tents draped in fairy lights that made for the most romantic reception backdrop.
Photographer Upon Two Weddings beautifully captured every well-thought-out detail–from bridal portraits with the bride’s father to sunset images and the extravagant party full of dancing and laughter.

Why A Greek-Inspired Sunset Kozani Wedding
We were born and raised in Switzerland and wanted to celebrate our wedding in our home village in Greece. The venue was our own farmhouse. We wanted our guests to feel like they came to our home to celebrate with us. Our love for gold, black, and white with blue shades can be seen all over our house–which is why we chose those to be our colors for the wedding. We wanted it to reflect us, not only the decoration but also the music and even the food.
A Very Large Guest List
Being Greek, we have a lot of relatives, and being from the same place did not make it not easier. Due to COVID-19, we did not know how many people we could invite to our wedding. We had multiple lists with 50, 100, 200, 500, and over 1000 guests! First, there were, of course, our families and closest friends. Then on the following list were some close relatives which we have a very good relationship with. On another list, we expanded it to even more relatives. We ended up having a wedding with 500 guests.
