WEDDING PLANNING AND DESIGN SERVICES FOR WISCONSIN AND MINNESOTA COUPLES  

Trading in stuffy, boring, and forgettable weddings for celebrations that are fun, memorable, and 100% true to you.

Whether you want a big, lively wedding or an intimate ceremony, we’ll be right by your side to nail down the logistics, “ohh” and “ahh” over all the personal touches you want to include, and make sure that no matter what we’re planning—you two are having a dang good time!

01 - your wedding, your way

We Need To Talk About “Midwest Nice” For A Sec…

Because it’s a thing. And it’s the kind of thing that’s great when it’s holding a door open for a stranger, but not so great when it turns into you making decisions about your wedding that fall under the people-pleasing category.

We’re here to remind you that what’s most important is what you two want.
And we’re happy to help navigate those tough convos.

Because you deserve a wedding that represents you and all the little details of your love story.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way…

Let’s talk about the wedding you do want

Maybe you want to have your wedding at the campground you two met at or one of your favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. Maybe your cocktails are inspired by your beloved pups or your dessert options include the apple cider donuts from your family’s orchard. And maybe you ask your dad to sing that Elvis Presley song you love or your best friend from college to give a speech about how special you two are.

No matter what, from the venue you pick to the traditions you keep, every decision should be true to you so your wedding is better than Pinterest-perfect—it’s uniquely yours. 

And you want that kind of wedding to happen without…

Having to spend months getting lost on Google trying to find the right vendors and decor, battling the unsolicited opinions of your well-meaning friends and family, and waking up, in the middle of the night, stressed that you forgot something incredibly important.

(Like double-checking with your vendors after a few more people get added to the guest list!)

Laid-back Luxury at it’s finest

AND THAT’S WHERE
Olive Branch Events Co.
comes in

We’ll focus on the wedding planning logistics, you focus on enjoying your engagement and letting loose.

And should anything go wrong on the big day, you’ll never even know because we’ll have it sorted out faster than you can say cheese curds.

(Fine, not really, but pretty dang fast.)

Dreaming of having your wedding outside of Minnesota or Wisconsin?

Even though we’re Midwesterners through and through, we’d be utterly delighted to help plan your destination wedding.

And we’ll be there

TWO QUESTIONS: WHEN AND WHERE?—

Sadly, there’s no option to give 6 stars, so 5 will have to do. 

Ellie's proactive, clear, and effective communication, every step of the way ensured that we never felt in the dark on decisions being made. What's more, no question or concern was too small, and her timely responses always put our minds at ease. Her attention to detail and clear communication ensured that we never felt overwhelmed or uncertain about our choices.

Ellie took the time to get to know us, and understand our vibe so she could direct us towards the BEST vendors for us. We are so happy with our choice!

I cannot give enough praise to Ellie and Deanna of Olive Branch!

Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Ellie and her amazing coordination. My now-husband and I didn’t even really know what we wanted for our wedding but after answering some questions to get to know us, Ellie curated the most perfect vision board that really felt like US and then helped us bring it to life. Ellie was incredible every step of the way, from reaching out to vendors for us, creating and adjusting our timeline, and most importantly, helping me manage my anxieties throughout the whole wedding planning process. She was a godsend. And the day off, everything ran so seamlessly, I thought I was dreaming. If you are looking for a planner, please do yourself a favor and book with Olive Branch. You won’t regret it :)

Deanna embraced our vision with enthusiasm and expertise, ensuring every detail was meticulously planned

Deanna's professionalism and dedication were evident as she reimagined our wedding day. She meticulously managed all the logistical challenges of changing venues and downsizing the event, ensuring that every detail was perfect. Her ability to maintain calm and provide solutions during such a turbulent time was truly remarkable.

Thanks to Deanna, our wedding day was not only beautiful but also deeply personal and meaningful. We are incredibly grateful for her exceptional work and the heartfelt support she provided. We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us navigate this journey. Deanna, thank you for making our day perfect and for being such an integral part of our wedding and our lives.

We’ll show up to planning calls in sweats, banter with you and your family, let the whole day unfold organically, and accept your sweaty hugs at the end of the night after you two have been dancing your booties off.

We're laid-back like...

We’ll have an answer for any question you ask, handle every big and small detail leading up to your wedding, and hand you a glass of your favorite drink after you walk down the aisle, after letting you know that everything’s going perfectly. 

But we're luxury like...

If laid-back and luxury had a baby, it would be

If that’s what you’re looking for…
