I am a wife to an incredible man who pushes me daily in our marriage to be a better person. One of our most notable adventures has been becoming parents through legal guardianship - pretty much as soon as we got back from our honeymoon. I love my small, unique family and certainly am not ashamed to admit that I'm slightly obsessed with my dog. 

When I'm not elbows deep into planning, you can find me cooking, hosting, spending time with family, singing at church or getting excited over my most recent thrift store find.

Although I will always adore a solid plan and pretty details, nothing is more life-giving to me than people gathering together. This brings a deeper sense of purpose and joy to what I do!
I consider it an honor to witness and share special moments with the people I get to serve on their wedding day, and beyond.

I suppose you could say I never intended to be a wedding planner, and especially not a small business owner (go ask anyone who knew me circa 2012 through 2015). 

For someone who thrives in planning and details, my life sure did not go according to plan. In the midst of a challenging season, after spending a few years in the non-profit industry and several personal milestones later (including becoming a wife and mom), I realized that I could offer more.

So, I started dreaming of a way I could help people, to add value and purpose to their lives while also incorporating my passions. And Olive Branch Events Co. was born (but it took about three years and maybe a few tears were shed, if I'm being honest).

If we're getting fancy, I have a bachelor's degree in Event Management and have been planning events of all types and sizes for over six years. My favorite events are the ones that make me cry because they're so full of joy and meaning.
