About Us

Congratulations on your Engagement!!

This is an incredibly exciting time of your life, and you should enjoy it to the fullest extent! Hiring a wedding planner is the absolute best decision you can make during the planning process and will guarantee that you enjoy the ride. We at Amore Events by Cody are known by our clients and other wedding professionals for our creativity, compassion and overall fresh approach to wedding planning. We take great pride in maintaining a boutique sensibility and a firm belief that with a smaller clientele, we can provide an unparalleled and focused level of service. Our planners are never pushy and encourage personalized concepts by providing recommendations to infuse your wedding with style and imagination. With our broad vendor knowledge and relationships and our understanding of the wedding industry and trends, Amore Events by Cody staff is in top condition to provide you with all you need to make your dream day a reality. We are sensitive to your budget and know the best vendors in the area who can create your vision in an affordable and cost-effective manner. Most importantly, we are available to oversee the planning process and the execution of the wedding to ensure that no stone goes unturned, no detail overlooked, and that your day is entirely stress free for you and your families.

Our Wedding Décor

Amore Events by Cody offers a unique collection of wedding décor, which sets us apart from our competitors. Free access to all these decorations and flourishes is offered to Amore Brides who book our full-planning package. We have spent countless hours researching and purchasing items and we are constantly adding to our collection. Most of our brides take advantage of this opportunity to further save time and money. For brides that book our Wedding Day Management and Partial Planning Package, our décor is available for rent.

How the Decor Works

Amore Events staff will help you select items from our collection to tie into your aesthetic, vision and venue. With our vast experience at many Charlottesville-area venues, we’ll be able to make recommendations for décor and aesthetic to transform the location into the perfect space for your wedding.

On your wedding day, we will transport your selected items to the venue and handle all set-up and break-down of these items at no additional cost. Many brides believe that purchasing their own décor will save them money and they forget the fact that they then need to find someone to bring and set it all up, often relying on a parent or close friend. Let us handle everything. Between our competitive planning rates and access to our décor, you’ll be shocked by the money and stress you’ll save by booking with Amore Events by Cody.

A Sampling of Our Décor:

Our inventory includes a bit of everything:

Glass Pieces: A variety of milk glass, mason jars, turn of the century glass medicine bottles, mercury glass votives, and blue glass lanterns…

Tabletop: Mismatched vintage plates, a 18” silver-plated cake stand, glass candlestick holders, a wine/champagne bucket, and preserved cedar wood slabs…

Signage: Mr.&Mrs. chair signs, wedding directionals, a “Weddings in Progress” wooden sign, chalkboards, frames, distressed wood table numbers, “Reserved” signs for tables or pews,and  wine bottle table numbers…

Boxes and Baskets: Wooden wine boxes, tool boxes, sewing desk drawers (great for silverware at buffets), and woven baskets…

Furniture: Three distressed wood farm tables, a distressed white wrought iron fence, garden hooks, two 19th-century yellow chairs, a crystal chandelier, wooden doors and windows…

…and much, much more!

I cannot say enough good things about Amore Events. From our first email, I knew that I wanted to hire her. Cody was warm and kind from the beginning and has a way about her that puts you at ease. We live 3 hours from Charlottesville, so I knew I needed guidance with vendor selections, logistics, etc. All of Cody’s suggestions were fantastic!

Although we hired Cody for 'day of' planning, she totally went above and beyond! Her expertise with event planning really shined though in any situation. Not only did she handle any bumps quickly and professionally, she also was organized and had fantastic ideas! Another amazing thing about Cody is her response time. I swear, sometimes I didn't have time to blink after I sent an email and she already had responded!

Before I met Cody, I was very nervous about who was going to help execute all the little details I designed for the wedding. On the wedding day, every single detail was executed JUST the way I imagined, if not better! Cody’s eye for design is impeccable and she even added her own touches to enhance the things I made. Our guests are still commenting on what a beautiful day it was. One guest said our wedding was ‘flawless' and it truly wouldn't have been that way without Cody. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and Cody makes you feel like your big day is just as important to her and it is to you.

Hiring Cody was the BEST decision we made when planning this wedding. She’s an amazing and loving person; one I hope to have in my life even after the wedding excitement is over. Our families, bridal party, and any guest who crossed paths with her, just adored Cody. She's a true blessing to anyone she comes in contact with. Cody, Bob and I love you dearly and you will always hold a special place in our hearts. We will be thanking you forever for everything you did to make our wedding the best day ever.
