A journey full of love and light - Majestic Baptism at Vienna
All family and estimable guests from all around the world aboard for an exceptionally unique baptism journey
through the picturesque landscape of Austria!
The invitation immediately predisposed the guests for what was about to happen: The double faced card was illustrated with hand drawn sketches of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Vienna and the Majestic Imperator Train de Luxe stream train.
The gold foil monogram of the soon-to-be baptized child’s name against the royal blue linen fabric background was the detail that added the luster and prestige needed to the invites for such an outstanding event.
The name Philippe Xander is not only an exceptional one: It was the inspiration for a happening highlighting its royal feel, and connecting it to Vienna’s vast musical tradition. The color palette was fitting to Vienna’s glorious aura. The monogram was embroidered on all towels and linens necessary for the ceremony and etched on the golden plates decorating the candles. It was also encased in the royal blue and gold keepsake bracelets: a great gesture from the family to all guests present.
The awe-inspiring Byzantine Church was appropriately decorated with fresh flower bouquets,
composed of white and blue flowers and greeneries.
Once the ceremony concluded, everyone headed straight to the platform where the 19th century steam train Majestic Imperator, bound for Wachau, Austria, was ready for departure. The wagon Equipage was exclusively disposed for the baptism reception, complete with a tea kitchen and bar inside the train’s walnut walls. The luxurious one-of-a-kind box holding various kinds of gourmet sugared almonds that awaited the guests in the wagon, was given as an additional keepsake; reminding everyone of the breathtaking journey. The imperial dinner -served along with exquisite wines- composed a culinary experience on the most luxurious furnishings aboard the steam train, for a truly “Fin de siècle” experience. The adventure reached its peak in Wachau, where the family and guests viewed the flamboyant fireworks illuminating the skies as celebration for the Midsummer festival on that very day.
The positive energy of the family, along with the royal sensation of splendor and elegance gave rise to a journey full of love and light;
the journey of a lifetime!
