I'm a classic girl at heart when it comes to weddings and to me, there's nothing more timeless than a day decked out purely in black and white. Sure, I had a bit of peachy blush in my own big day, but when I see a colorless fete like this one planned by Amore Events by Cody? I'm convinced that (even on a rainy day) this good ol' combo does the trick. See more captured by Gianny Campos in The Vault!

From Gianny Campos Photography... News anchor Eve (Tannery) Russo and owner of Capital Printing Corp. Nolan Russo, from New Jersey, were married in a rustic-chic wedding at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards in Virginia. The couple, in their 30s, had been to every banquet hall, country club, and hotel in their area for weddings that were all relatively similar, so they wanted their wedding venue to be something different, memorable, and intimate. The wedding was a "drive-able destination," so guests could spend a few days celebrating the couple and getting to know one another. The big day marked the end of a rare, non-stop week of rain, but it didn't dampen what turned out to be an unforgettable wedding. Because of the soggy ground, and Eve's meteorologists at work warning her of potential downpours, the couple chose to get married under Pippin's long porch, which still overlooks the mountains. It provided a comfortable and stunning venue for the ceremony. The clouds ended up proving to be the perfect backdrop, with a majestic steam developing over the mountains and the colors beautifully complimenting the couple's classic and glamorous black and white color scheme. Because family is so important to Eve and Nolan, they really wanted guests to "feel the love," and they did that through beautiful paper and signage by Poppy and Scooter with personal touches including a custom-designed monogram, lyrics from the couple's "song," clever sayings, and even funny hashtags. Amore Events by Cody created the most glamorous and inviting space for the reception, with candles and greenery (some of which Cody forged herself) and luscious floral arrangements on every table. Stunning lanterns hung from the ceiling to create the perfect ambiance. Guests were able to enjoy various areas - the dance floor, a cigar bar, a fire pit, and even a local donut truck, where workers served fresh, organic donuts for dessert…a "sweet ending" for what was truly a magical day.
