  • After researching planners for our wedding at Pippin Hill, I immediately knew Cody from Amore Events was 'the one' during our initial call. Not only was she incredibly detailed in her planning (which I loved!), she took an individualized approach to our wedding and made sure we (and our guests) always came first. Cody knows everyone you need to know when it comes to weddings and was essential to recommending additional vendors for us. She provided great guidance and was never pushy, always leaving the final decision up to me. Cody helped take my piecemeal vision and turn it into the wedding of our dreams – it was seriously PERFECT!!! The day of the wedding, Cody and her team executed flawlessly. I was able to relax and enjoy the day with my bridesmaids knowing Cody would handle anything that popped up. Cody is an incredible wedding planner and even better person – I feel lucky to be one of her brides!

  • We hired Karen McGrath as our month-of coordinator and she was such a huge stress-reliever. I'm a naturally anxious person but felt SO much better after every call with Karen. She was able to help with so many last minute details, like providing table numbers, printing/framing our seating chart sign, and providing pens for our Jenga game "guestbook" when we realized we forgot to bring them. She was able to efficiently and effectively manage our timeline so we remained on schedule and handled the small hiccups that came with our wedding in a way so that I wasn't bothered. The day of the wedding, I felt so calm and was just able to enjoy the day without stress and that is directly because Karen did such a good job handling everything so I didn't have to worry.

  • It’s hard to even put into words how amazing Cody is but here it goes... From the first time we spoke I knew she understood exactly the vision that we had for our wedding, and let me say that she figured it out without the most detailed information from me! I was pretty much the bride with photos of things that I liked and no idea how to bring them all together. Cody designed, planned and executed every last detail more perfectly than I could have ever imagined and I’m not just saying that! Every last detail was stunning and more perfect than I ever dreamed. Seriously, mic drop, PERFECT! Not only did she hit the design out of the park but she was always in communication with me. There was never a time that I had to follow up with her on anything. She made the process of planning the most smooth and stress free experience of my life. My husband and I don’t have enough words to express our gratitude for all that she did to make our wedding one that dreams are made of! O... Read more

  • Words cannot express how incredibly grateful I am to Cody and her team at Amore Events!! If you are looking for a wedding planner - she is IT! From day 1 of working with her I felt like she understood exactly what I was envisioning for our wedding and that she always had my best interest in mind. Cody went above and beyond to stay in constant communication with me, to work seamlessly with my other vendors, and to plan the most incredible and beautiful wedding I could ever ask for. I seriously could not imagine going through this planning process without her and HIGHLY recommend Cody and Amore Events - she is the best!!! Thank you Cody!!!

  • We worked with Karen from Amore Events by Cody and she was incredible. She was so patient throughout the planning process and put up with all of our calls, emails, texts, etc. Her attention to detail and excellent taste ensured we had a BEAUTIFUL wedding and that everything went smoothly. Guests are still raving about how incredibly gorgeous our wedding was and telling us how blown away they were. We are so grateful to Karen for giving us the wedding of our dreams.

  • Cody was, hands down, the absolutely best decision we made when planning our wedding. From the first moment we spoke, I knew she was the woman for us. From day one and through the big day, she was there for me & us every step of the way– attentive, honest, insightful, sensitive to my budget, patient, responsive, and basically my best friend when it came to all things wedding. To be honest, when we first got engaged we didn't think we needed a planner– I'm good at planning things, how hard could it be? I definitely made the BEST call by going with Cody. She is an absolute PRO, and knows how to to make everything you want happen. She knows all the vendors, what's feasible, and what works well. She knows everything there is to know about weddings, and there is no way we could have had the absolutely beautiful and seamless wedding we did without her direction through the year long process, and on the weekend of. On the day of, it unexpectedly started raining (in June!), and befo... Read more

  • Hiring Cody was hands down one of the best decisions we could have made when planning our wedding. My mom and I talked with her early on when we were picking a wedding planner, and after our first conversation, we knew our search had ended. Cody is just incredible. She is so kind, so down-to-earth, so thoughtful, and absolutely phenomenal at what she does. She truly went above and beyond for us. She gave us the absolute best recommendations for vendors, she put together a detailed timeline and list of tasks that we accomplished together one by one, making what is usually a daunting process seem completely manageable and super fun. She gave incredible advice, and when it came down to making sure that our wedding felt personal and unique to us as a couple, she offered creative ideas that just spoke to how well she knew us - it seemed like we knew her a lot longer than just the year and a half leading up to our wedding! Some of my favorite details that were her idea included personalized ... Read more

  • My daughter's wedding was last weekend, and I am still lingering over how wonderful it was, all because of Cody. We enjoyed about 18 months of planning the event, with Cody's help, and I knew from the first call I placed to her, when looking for a wedding planner, that she was "the one." My daughter chided me a bit, saying we needed to talk to several, so I just asked her to call Cody too. After she talked with Cody she called me back, saying those words every Mom loves to hear, "Mom you're right." Cody was totally on top of everything...she knew which vendors would work best....she loved working with the venue we chose.....Cody was just so easy to work with. If either of us had a question, we'd email Cody and usually get a very prompt response. She was so fun at our design meeting, and the food tasting, we just very quickly became very good friends with her and I think the world of her. I knew Jessica's wedding was in the best hands. The day of the wedding Cody was there with u... Read more

  • Cody is the best of the best. Her professionalism is unparalleled. Every thing in our wedding was so meticulously laid out from day one. She kept us up to date on all of our vendors, everything she was doing, what we needed to do and the time frame it needed to be done in, and laid out a design plan with updated visuals so we never questioned how everything was looking. Because of her tenure, connections, and tireless work ethic she was able to give us our dream wedding while staying in budget. She saved us so much money while still giving us everything we wanted. Even up until the day of the wedding she was negotiating to make sure everything was above and beyond our expectations. She even has her own inventory of items that added unique details to our wedding without having to find and purchase them ourselves. Cody made the entire process enjoyable and stress free (well as much as possible, lets face it, you’re still dealing with family). I am naturally a very stressed ou... Read more

  • Our wedding was gorgeous, and it's because Cody is a creative leader with the patience of a saint and the professional tact of a Fortune 500 executive. If her 500+ perfect reviews haven't convinced you of her skill, then you should know that I had to change my original venue 60 days out and Cody magically took my heaping mess and transformed it into the best day of my and my husband's lives. We held our ceremony at the UVA Chapel and then hosted our reception at Common House on the mall. Cody planned the first-ever wedding at Common House, leading not only her own staff, but also working seamlessly with the venue's entire staff + my external vendors to ensure everything from music to flowers to food to drink to toasts and so much more were amazing. I can't put into words how incredibly amazing and hardworking Cody is. She went above and beyond thinking of details I couldn't even begin to forecast, making our wedding absolutely beautiful, personal, and unique. This woman recreated K... Read more

  • Karen McGrath at Amore Events served as our day-of coordinator. She was positively flawless and we couldn't have done it without her! She really took the reins about a month before the wedding. We had weekly calls, and it felt weird at first to surrender control over some of the vendor relationships and things, but it was a real joy to not have to worry about the small details. She also helped us in a pinch when we couldn't find bus vendors because so many were booked up. She was great at getting us through rehearsal with as little stress as possible, and helped us think about all the details we might have missed. On the day of our wedding, she seemed to be both everywhere and nowhere - she and her team of assistants were taking care of everything seamlessly without feeling like they were underfoot. There was a minor medical emergency with one of our guests - and Karen made sure there wasn't a big production stopping the whole reception. At the end of the night, everything that needed ...

  • If you are looking for an impeccable wedding planner, look no further. Cody was absolutely fantastic in every way possible. I remember the day we hired her, my mom called me and said, "I found your planner - there's no need to speak to anyone else, we must go with Cody." Right off the bat, my mom and I could tell that Cody knew what she was doing. Over the next 10 months leading up to the wedding, Cody made me feel as if I were her only bride. She is extremely attentive, organized, and detail oriented. She answered calls, texts, and emails immediately no matter the time of day. Cody was reassuring but honest throughout the whole process. She has amazing relationships with vendors in the area and connected us with the most amazing team. Cody gets the job done - she is 100% on your team throughout it all. With any hiccup or potentially difficult decision that came my way, Cody guided me through it with grace. As an added bonus, Cody has unbelievable taste and she helped me design every l... Read more

  • I was BLOWN away by Cody! She was recommended to me by the event planner at Pippin Hill and I could not be MORE satisfied with her services. I plan corporate events at a hedge fund in NYC and have very high standards/can be a bit particular. Cody knew exactly what I wanted and gave me EXACTLY what I envisioned. All my friends who got married told me to prepare for something to go wrong on my wedding day and honestly, it was absolutely flawless. All of my guests told me it was the best/most beautiful wedding they have ever been to - and I wish I could do it all over again with Cody as my planner!
