Cody is not just a wedding planner, she's an amazing and passionate human being FIRST. It just so happens, she's PRETTY DAMN GOOD at wedding planning. I'M TELLING YOU, BRIDE TO BRIDE, WOMAN TO WOMAN, YOU NEED HER.
Every bride needs the positivity that Cody exudes. Her enthusiasm, her love for you and your ideas, everything, is contagious. In the times where I ever doubted anything, freaked out over nothing, she was there to tell me everything was going to be O.K. and not to stress out. She understands the process and she WANTS to be a true friend to you and she WANTS you to be able to tell her anything. Because she WANTS to be that for you, because THAT is the person that she is.
The actual wedding planning and logistics seemed almost too easy because of Cody. In February, she heard all my ideas; by April we had talked to all the vendors; and by October we were just waiting until the wedding February. She knew exactly what I wanted, she knew exactly who to go to, she knew exactly what to get. And I just needed to show up!
The day OF the wedding, went off without a hitch!!! I mean, I cant believe how much I DIDNT have to do. All my guests told me, "that was such a good Idea!" ...That was cody. "Oh I really like how you put [these] there"....That was cody. Like I said, she made a vision come true. to every last detail! And I didn't have the typical country-rustic wedding. We had FULL RED CARPET, full GLAM, and FULL GRAND wedding. Which was no easy feat!! She has such a good rapport with vendors which made everything SO MUCH easier.
I honestly don't know what I would have done without Cody. Stop wasting your time looking for wedding planners and just get Cody. There will never be enough words to describe all that she has done and all that she is. I will be forever thankful.

I truly do not know where to start in describing how incredible Cody is. She is the most passionate person about her job and her brides. While knowing all along I was, of course, not Cody’s only bride, she ALWAYS made me feel as though I was. We spoke weekly for 1.5 years leading up to the wedding, and I can honestly say I looked forward to those calls not just because she is a BOSS at getting things done/keeping me on schedule, but she is truly a delight to chat with. She is unbelievably organized and has this wedding planning thing down to a science - from all the incredible spreadsheets and contacts she has, you are set from the get go. My husband and I were very adamant about our budget, and Cody set honest expectations from the beginning and met our goals FLAWLESSLY. I could go on and on about Cody the wedding planner I had and Cody the friend I now have. It was the absolute best wedding planning experience I could’ve ever asked for, especially as an the admittedly anxious former bride I was. I loved her, my parents loved her - she is so special. Work with her and you will not regret it for one second!! :)

There are too many good things to say about Cody, I don't even know where to start. I found Cody a year ago through her incredible reviews on WeddingWire. Cody was available to chat immediately when I reached out. She took her time to explain her services, answer my questions, and was honest with me about what to expect in the wedding planning process including all expenses to expect for our chosen wedding venue. After that, Cody poured her heart into the year long wedding planning process. She set up conference calls every single week to answer questions, and keep me on track with various tasks. Cody really cares about each of her clients and will do everything in her power to exceed your expectations! Cody is super accessible, and replies to your emails, texts, and calls within minutes. We had our wedding one week ago and it was simply magical. Everything turned out so much better than we ever imagined, thanks to Cody. She kept me calm and reassured me every day during the week of the wedding, despite the stormy weather from Hurricane Florence heading our way. She is extremely organized and had the most detailed timeline to make sure the day goes by seamlessly. She is also very talented with wedding styles, design and decor. She made sure our wedding looked stunning while being mindful of what we envisioned and considering our budget. We will always appreciate Cody for her hard work, dedication to her job, and her friendship along the way. Thank you Cody!!
Cody is such a sweetheart, and we frequently send our inquiring brides her way if we are not a good fit or have our dates booked.
When I know I have a wedding that Cody has planned I always know it's going to be something special and I can't wait to get there on the day-of to see what she has created. Cody is talented, kind and the most genuinely enthusiastic person I know. Cody lives and breathes for her brides and any one of them who has the opportunity to work with her is a lucky girl... in short, she is the best at what she does!
Cody is one of the most amazing event planners I have had the pleasure to work with. Her love and passion she has for her work and couples definitely shows with everything she does. You can't go wrong trusting Cody with your wedding or any special event you may be having.
