Glory Barbaris is a creative event and wedding designer, coordinator, and stylist based in Sterling, Virginia. Her work has been featured in various wedding blogs, publications, and Instagram, including Virginia Bride Magazine, The Knot, David’s Bridal, Babetown Collective, Modern Weddings, Whimsically Wed and Zola.

Glory has more than seven years experience in fashion where she worked as a model, as well as four years in hospitality and corporate event management.

Before starting her wedding planning business in 2016, she worked in the IT industry as a senior technical product manager, in executive leadership roles such as corporate event coordinator, senior technical product manager, web project manager and global marketing and communications manager. She graduated from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. She is a Midwest girl at heart and grew up in a small town just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

She is also a wife, mother to a 7-year-old daughter (hugger at heart just like her mama), and she reside in a Mid-Century modern home full of natural light, thirty-five plants, three rescue dogs, a cat, and three fish. She is an animal lover and traveler who loves wine, photography, the beach, Dim Sum and Korean BBQ. In her free time, Glory works as a product + brand stylist and photographer working with international + national brands like Target, CROCS, L’Oreal, to create branded social media + marketing content and photography.

I strongly believe that on your special day, everything has to be perfect down to the smallest of details. I am a detail-obsessive compulsive, Type A personality with a keen eye for details and foresight for the bigger picture. And because I obsess over all the little and big details of wedding planning, my couples can relax, worry less, and trust that everything relating to their big day is going to taken care of by a professional and efficient coordinator.
