event preview & GIVEAWAY: 2017 Handpicked | A Bridal Event

If you know someone getting married, you know there are A LOT of decisions to make and that can make it hard on all involved in the planning process. Let’s make it easier on you brides-and-grooms-to-be, shall we? Join me and some of my favorite fellow Northeast Ohio wedding professionals at the 2017 Handpicked | A Bridal Event, taking place on Tuesday, August 15th from 6-9pm at the HiHO Brewing Co. in Cuyahoga Falls.

Founded in 2013, Handpicked is a unique bridal experience highlighting the work of local boutique-style businesses. Guests attending a Handpicked Event enjoy a styled shoot-esque cocktail party environment while mingling alongside talented vendors showcasing their editorial wedding skills.

Amanda of Baci Designer (above, on the left) and Melanie of Oak and Honey Events (above, on the right) are the hosts of Handpicked. Amanda started Handpicked in 2013 and Melanie joined in to host last year.

Each year, their creative minds find a way to blend the concept of a bridal show with a styled shoot — you know, all those Pinterest worthy images you see when dreaming of your perfect day. All of the looks have been outstanding, but I’m partial to the 2015 MOCA Cleveland event’s — mostly because it has one of my favorite linens from the L’Nique Specialty Linen Rental collection, our formal black and white satin stripe tablecloth. How lovely is this look?!
