Geia sou Eleni, It was wonderful talking to you today. I have emailed you the shutterfly website created by my Koumbaroi. Please let me know if you can view the photos. I just wanted to express how grateful I am for your beautiful work in handling the entire baptism of my two special goddaughters on March 14, 2009. You run a very professional business and your attention to detail was admired by everyone - particularly by the twins' mother. From the shoes to the dresses, lathopana, holy oil bottle with the icon, martirika on the satin pillow to the gorgeous candles and keepsake chest that you custom decorated...were all stunningly beautiful. You made the baptism a truly memorable and cherished event in New York. I appreciate your efforts in putting everything together as you relieved my concerns as an "out of town godmother." Thank you again.

We want to Thank you for the personal attention that you gave us with our order from Portara, and also Thank you very much for the lovely gift, we have already found a place for it.

I received my baptism order today...everything is beautiful, and I'm very happy with the whole package...the lampades, martyrika, ladopana...very nice! Thanks so much for your help...I will keep you in mind for the next baptism!
Many thanks to you and your staff for the wonderful items I ordered. The baptism was this past Saturday here in the Poconos. Many people were from New York and I was sure to tell them where I ordered from. Everyone was very impressed with the undergarments, ladopana, pins and candles, especially the baby's mother who was terribly nervous. I'll be sure to send a picture when they are ready. I have given your website and address to several people and I wish you much success. If you ever need a referral please feel free to call me or use this note
Hi Eleni, Thank you for the gift blanket- it is very kind of you. Just wanted to let you know that the baptism went very well yesterday and you have no idea how many compliments I received on all the items I got from your store.The icons that I thought I had too many of were all gone and I was only left with 2 for myself and my family- they were quite the sensation! Thanks again for everything, Chrisoula
I wouldn't feel right if I didn't tell you how pleased I am with the lampades and the boubounieres. The lampades are truly lovely, and came out better than I envisioned. The icons even look better than they do on the website and everyone I have shown them to agrees.Overall, I am very happy with everything and you did a really nice job.
The christening outfit that I purchased for my soon to be godson is stunning. I've checked out dozens of web sites over the past month, and I did not find anything that comes close in beauty and quality to the suit. I am so proud to give him such a beautiful outfit. Thank you.
This is our second wedding in a year! We ordered the second set of crowns and they are even more beautiful this time...the Royal Wedding Crowns are stunning and look so beautiful in the Heirloom Collection oval case - both crowns are visible through the glass...it is perfect! Thanks for your suggestions and also for the silver icon in the case! June E. Santa Barbara, CA...St. Athanasius Orthodox Church
My family and I are joining the Greek church, and I was so over whelmed and nervous and wanted eveything to be perfect for my family's big day. I searched fo weeks until I found the Portara Gallery. Once I found what I wanted the Portara representative was very kind and helpful through the whole process. I just recieved the witness ribbons and they are more beautiful then you could imagine or then the pictures are. It is true quality and it brings tears to my eyes knowing that this day will be first class. Portara has a new customer for life. We have a wedding in June and we will definatly be back to buy more things. Thank you Portara Gallery and staff for everything.
I received my stefana yesterday and I love them!! Thank you very much for all your help and your great response. The stefana are truly special! Best Wishes, Sophia
Wishing Portara Gallery a Merry, Merry Christmas and may you have a healthy, happy and prosperous 2006! Many thanks and much appreciation for the great service, professionalism, timely responses and true old time business spirit! We look forward to continuing to enjoy our shopping with you in the New Year!
I received the lambades and they are just beautiful and elegant. You really did a wonderful job. You also had them packed very nicely and they arrived in very good condition. Many thanks for helping to make our upcoming event so special. Helen
I ordered some baptism pins for our God daughter's baptism and when they arrived I was so excited. They looked perfect and we got so many compliments. A representative even called me after I placed the order online to confirm my choices. It was so easy and I highly recommend this site. The quality is above what I expected. I can't say enough good things, and I am always recommending Portara to anyone that asks where to get good quatlity, beautiful baptism supplies. They will impress you. So many things to worry about when you're planning parties, but this is one area you won't have to be concerned about. You'll be glad you ordered. Don't even bother trusting anybody else with your important day.
Thank you so much for all that you did to ensure the beauty and preciseness of our order. The completed white Capodimonte rose buds for our daughter's July 3rd Baptism were absolutely gorgeous! Thanks again! Sincerely, Krisztina
The martyrika ribbons were delivered quickly and they are beautiful!! (MA 115). Thank-you so much for your patience with me for being undecided about the extra ribbons. Your determination and time spent on the phone getting my order correct really paid off for another satisfied and grateful customer. I hope I will be able to do business with you in the future! Take care and have a prosperous summer!
Ta stefana eine panemorfa! Absolutely stunning. They all came safe and sound and I am thrilled.THANK YOU thank you, s'efharistoume.
Hello, thank you very very much for the Christening pins... They were albsolutely fantastic.......perfect.The picture martirika made the day.
I have a question, i received the beautiful four season dolls as a wedding present. i would like to know if there is a proper way to display them. besides their beauty, they are enchanting and my guess is there is more to these dolls than their looks. do they bring balance, peace, or any other benefit according to their mythology? thank you in advance
The Vaftistika items arrived home on Wednesday night and they are absolutely beautiful! Oh boy, you really outdid yourself and they look phenomenal! I absolutely love them: martirika, lambades and bombonierres -- the designs are truly gorgeous and they all coordinate so well! BRAVO SOU!
