Welcome! I am so glad you are here. I am Alyssa Glorioso, the owner and lead planner at Glorious Weddings & events. I am a rare native Virginian, wife to a handsome Italian husband, and the middle child of six children. While thoroughly an extrovert (an ENFJ //Sanguine - Choleric // Enneagram 2), I far prefer to be behind the scenes than in the spotlight. I am passionate about a seamless flow to your day and a well-executed timeline. On wedding day, you’ll see me me sporting my apron (with all of the tools) and binder in hand. Current obsessions include gorgeous barware, napkin folds, and proteas (seriously, look them up). In the evenings, you’ll probably find me with a glass of red wine and making a mess in the kitchen.
My daily routine often includes a walk or an escape into nature when I am in need of inspiration or just to reset. Beach or mountains? Please don't ask me to pick; both are my favorite. I firmly believe in following your curiosity and that no skill or experience is wasted. I am energized by new ideas and interests and love finding ways to incorporate them and better serve my couples.
While I love the design and the planning, the logistics and the timeline, nothing brings me more joy than being a part of those moments of true connection and celebration on a wedding day: Seeing the joy in the parents’ eyes as their daughter walks down the aisle, or listening to the toasts. I always learn new things about my couples from the toasts -- and these moments reconnect me to my purpose, and passion. I love being around people and consider helping others to be the highest calling, and the most fulfilling aspect of my work.
