I'm Deanna, the head, heart and hands behind Olive Branch Events Co. My heart is especially happy when I have flowers in my hands and when I get to spend quality time with my favorite people (and my scruffy pup).
I am completely obsessed with my sweet son, my dog (and really all dogs), and cultivating strong marriages, including my own! I've planned events of all shapes and sizes, but weddings are hands-down my favorite!
When my husband and I planned our own wedding over 5 years ago, we wanted to celebrate OUR story. I would describe our wedding as very simple, non-fussy, with copious amounts of food (because anyone who knows me know how important this is). It was totally us! But we knew we also wanted a meaningful marriage, so we made sure to invest in each other during the engagement process. My goal is to honor you and your story, whether you decide to have a small backyard wedding or a big celebration. I delight in celebrating each couple's personalities and freeing them up to love more and stress less!
When I'm not elbows deep in planning, you can find me spending time with my family and loved ones, singing, eating (haha!!!), and looking for great deals at the thrift store!
