The Founder's Story - Amanda @ Baci Designer

When moving back to Northeast Ohio after starting Baci Designer, I felt the local area deserved more - more credit for the presence of truly talented wedding vendors who believe every wedding should be unique to the couple getting married and not just about what is expected of them or what the couple before them had.  The vendors who believe in thinking outside of the box to create a personalized and storytelling event for each couple.  Handpicked was born to showcase those fabulous vendors!

Beginning in 2016, hosting Handpicked alongside my dear friend, Melanie of Oak & Honey Events, is something so exciting for us both.  Our brains work perfectly in sync when it comes to design and planning so the end results are nothing short of amazing!

The Handpicked Family

Handpicked has a lot of moving parts and we couldn't pull it off without the very kind and generous help from these folks we're lucky enough to call our family!  Here are a few of the friendly faces you might see!
