Now that Handpicked 2014 is officially over, we are already excited for next year! Thank you to everyone who participated, including all of our fabulous vendors who helped make our visions come to life! Our guests deserve a big thank you for coming out as well! And of course a huge thanks to Baci Designer for hosting the second annual Handpicked Event. None of this would have been possible without Amanda, the founder of Baci Designer, who's inspiration and creativity made the event as amazing at it was!
If you didn't get to make it to Handpicked, so many amazing things went down: Boozy snow cones made by our interns, Alyssa and Brigit, chandeliers hanging in trees and amazing lighting by Anna-Jeannine and Justin of Something New Entertainment, breathtaking floral arrangements from Jessica of Blush Custom Weddings, unbelievably tasty gourmet food from the folks of Totally Cooked Catering, unique and timeless china from Carol and Susan of China Cupboard, vintage and eclectic furniture and décor from Anne of Borrow Rentals, the highest quality linens around from Amanda and Jeramy of Sitting Pretty Linens, and our amazing outdoor venue, Hines Hill, thanks to Brittany and the crew from the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park!
Your sweet tooth would have definitely been satisfied with a delicious and very fun donut bar by Peace, Love and Little Donuts, to-die-for macaroons, chocolates, and dessert shooters from Bittersweet's, and fresh funnel cake fries paired with french toast ice cream from the always so delicious Sweetie Fry!
Aside from all of the delicious and beautiful things going on at Handpicked, we also had meet and greets for our wonderful wedding planners, Melanie of Oak & Honey Events, and Anna of Pretty Miss Events!
In our Styling Suite, there were stunning brooch bouquets and jewelry by Susie Kay's, dress fittings with Karin and Rebecca of Something White, handmade Spanish lace wedding veils by Gloria of The Mantilla Company, and Caroline from the Wandering Wardrobe made an appearance with her trendy truck full of fabulous fashion!
We cannot forget the talented photographers, Renee of Studio Elle Photography, Lauren of Lauren Gabrielle Photography, and Tiffany of Tiffany Luc Photography, and the raddest cinematographer around, RAD Cinematographer, who helped us capture the essence of Handpicked!
If you did attend the event, don't forget to "throw & grow" your seed bomb favors complimentary of Baci Designer!!
