WHO ARE WE?
Founded in 2009 by Owner & Creative Director Debby Jewesson, Branching Out Events is a full service floral design and event production company. Our niche: high-end, upscale events with a classic, sophisticated and timeless aesthetic.
We design, manage and produce all the décor elements needed for your big day- including floral (our in-house specialty), linens, lighting, custom furniture and more. From big picture to hardly visible, we rock all the details to transform your special event into extraordinary experience! (Be prepared for a flood of compliments from your guests!)
note: BOE’s services are focused on the floral & decor portion of your special event- any element that changes the original appearance of your venue; i.e. We are not wedding planners and are happy to recommend a wedding planning pro for this undeniably beneficial service.
WHO ARE YOU?
Branching Out Events is perfect for the bride who……appreciates having a voice in a collaborative process, while at the same time recognizes the value of hiring a professional to take the lead.
Our BOE Team takes the time to listen and truly understand what you want. Using 25+ years of combined industry experience, we vow to respectfully guide you toward a cohesive event design. You can rely on our expertise to build on your initial vision and create something that is beyond your imagination!
WHY BRANCHING OUT?
Above all, we are genuinely committed to helping you navigate the (sometimes overwhelming) world of floral and event design. To simplify your journey, we created the tried and true “Branch Bride Process”, a 3-Stage process introduced during the initial consultation. (spoiler alert: Stage 3 includes a custom & complimentary sample session!) With the BBP, you’re guaranteed to have a super smooth, thoroughly enjoyable and refreshingly fun experience from start to finish.
BOE is proud to be the 5 time winner of the “Favorite Florist” Award given by the DFW Chapter of American Association of Certified Wedding Planners, becoming the first Florist in the category to be inducted into the organization’s prestigious Hall of Fame.

Debby is the owner, principal designer and creative director of Branching Out. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Debby began her professional career as a physical education teacher and volleyball coach. In 2000, a desire to change careers inspired the leap of faith that introduced Debby to the world of floral design.
Her true Texas can-do spirit sent her knocking on doors until she got hired at a high-end design company sweeping floors and processing flowers. When the broom handle became clippers, she had the opportunity to train with some of the most talented designers in the DFW area. Debby launched Branching Out Floral & Event Design in 2009, and she quickly developed a reputation for her high energy and creativity.
That same passion and enthusiasm for bringing out the best in people as a PE coach is now channeled into encouraging her staff to work as a team and exceed the expectations for each client. From weddings in a white chapel, receptions on a private ranch or a gala with a grand theme, Debby appreciates the designer’s challenge of bringing each unique vision to life. Her love of flowers is contagious, as is her genuine enthusiasm for each event.
Debby is married to wine-lover, Mike, and is the mother of two terrific kids and, of course, the lovable St. Bernard, Max, and kitties, Rosie and Fritz. When not working, she loves walking, biking and gardening.
DIRECTOR OF COMPANY RELATIONS & OPERATIONS
Katy jumped right into our growing team joining Branching Out in 2014 shortly after graduating from SMU with honors in Journalism and Spanish. With a background including Editor-in-Chief of her college newspaper, working for Southwest The Magazine and on the Red Bull marketing team, Katy is nothing short of a go-getter. Her ambition, composure, and communication skills have been a recipe for her passion and success in this fast-paced industry.
You’ll find Katy at her desk with a cup of green tea and a candle lit, busily typing away on her dual-screen computer responding to client emails and calls, ensuring all the details are perfect! If anyone knows best what is happening at The Branch – it’s Katy! She also keeps her finger on the pulse with what’s happening around town. She is always hip to the newest Dallas eateries and venues, and makes sure we remain in tune to what’s trending with brides of her generation.
Katy is happiest starting each day with 90 minutes of yoga and ending it with a glass of red wine. She is mom to the most precious pup, Hilde.
