September has been a very special month for G&N Events because G&N Events's very own Giulia Stavropoulos got married! Giulia and Jeb tied the knot on September 7th at the beautiful Riverside on the Potomac. The weather was absolutely perfect so Giulia and Jeb were able to have their ceremony outdoors and their reception inside Riverside's legendary barn.
The entire wedding had personal elements of the couple strewn throughout. Not only did Giulia and Jeb exchange personal vows that they had written to each other, but Jeb's stepfather officiated the wedding! Additionally, as a nod to Giulia's Greek background, the couple used the wedding crowns (or "stefana," as they are called in Greek) that Giulia's parents used when they got married. The DJ (Capital Deejays) played a collection of songs that were personally selected by both the bride and the groom and switched playing music alongside a Greek band (The Pegasus Band) that played traditional Greek songs that everyone Greek danced to. As part of their decor, Giulia and Jeb had their families bring framed family photos that were scattered throughout the barn.
The wedding had an outdoorsy theme with pops of navy blue, accents of blush florals, and touches of greenery throughout.
Giulia and Jeb had one diamond removed from Giulia's wedding band and inserted in Jeb's to symbolize how they will be linked forever.
Giulia's mom, Nora (the "N" in G&N!), gave Giulia a beautiful sapphire ring that was once a gift to her from Giulia's dad. The bride used this as her "something blue."
Giulia's bouquet had Giulia's favorite flowers: white lilies. All floral decor and bouquets were from Ginger & Blooms.
Giulia has been best friends with her bridesmaids since high school!
Giulia had three bridesmaids, while Jeb had six groomsmen. Despite the uneven numbers, it worked perfectly!
Catering, cake, and linens were all thanks to Main Event Caterers.
Since Giulia and Jeb's cat, Holly, couldn't be there in person, they made sure to include her in photos around the venue as well as on their customized cake topper.
