Hey there! I'm Deanna. As the original head, heart, and hands behind OBEC, I’ve planned events of all shapes and sizes. Hands-down, weddings are my favorite.
Not because of intricate planning and meaningful details (but make no mistake, my strong suit is definitely organization and logistics!), but because of people like you. Nothing is more life-giving to me than people gathering together.
My husband says it’s my servant’s heart, and he's right! I love weddings because I love people.
When I’m not elbows-deep in planning, you’ll find me spending time with my husband, chasing my 2 sons, hitting up the local boba place, or raving about my most recent thrift store find!
Hey! I'm Renee, Founder and Creative Director of Renee Breanne Design + Co. My passion and experience in interior design developed into planning and curation of fine art events. My talent lies in my ability to understand and execute my clients' spoken and unspoken vision for their wedding celebrations. With nearly a decade of experience, I fell in love with dreaming up immaculate events, big and small. With client and guest experience at the center of my artistry, I work with couples who have a penchant for great food, beautiful entertainment and spectacular environments. At my core, I believe that there is nothing better than my clients walking into their wedding day with zero stress and that capturing the smallest moments truly makes the best memories.
I am a modern calligrapher based in Madison, Wisconsin. I have had a passion for creating and making for as long as I can remember, but never knew what my medium was until I found my love for calligraphy.
I am inspired by connection and detail. I love all things creative, unique, and organized. Joy is sparked for me when I am spending time with my people, creating, and exploring. I believe that we can spark connection and express our unique selves when we really pay attention. I specialize in wedding signage, stationery, and custom projects. I also serve as a lead planner with Renee Breanne Design and Co. (RBD). It is a true pleasure for me to get to support different couples through RBD, learn all about their unique love stories, and see them celebrated on some of their biggest and momentous days.
You're used to being the hostess - charming the room and running around making sure everyone is taking care of. Let us take care of you this time! There will be no shortage of food and drinks and good times! You deserve it!
It's one thing to learn something and another to put it into practice. We'll make sure you leave with confidence on how to design and style an event with hands-on sessions. Pretty things are important, but you'll also leave with tangible ways to automate your business and how to uplevel your client experience.
The workshop experience includes an opportunity for updated headshots for your website and marketing materials. Dress for your brand and choose between two photography styles:
fine art or more moody - whichever suits your business best!
