At OSO IN LOVE, we consider ourselves wedding curators, not planners or coordinators. Why, you ask? Well, it's simple based on the definition above.

At OSO IN LOVE, we take great care of your special day. As a starting point, we listen to you, gathering your thoughts, inspirations and dreams for your wedding day. We then work with you to create a unique and timeless occasion beyond your wildest dreams. A wedding experience that will have your guests talking about your special day for years to come!

Day of, Rob handled setup and teardown in addition to all the day-of coordination. The space looked perfect and everything went off without a hitch! Our parents could not stop talking about how amazing Rob was - he handled everything behind the scenes and we simply had the time of our lives, without any worries. We even heard a few stories from guests after the fact about Rob going above and beyond to help with any minor inconvenience - and we didn't even know. We can not say enough good things about Rob - you will not regret choosing to work with him!

We were initially drawn to Rob at a wedding show because we wanted a wedding planner with similar values to us. My wife and I presented a major challenge to him - planning a completely outdoor wedding on a hilltop with no electricity or running water. Rob was willing to work with us through these challenges to plan a beautiful wedding. We appreciated that he contacted vendors and presented us with various options to choose from during the planning process. Overall, we were very happy working with Rob to make our wedding such a special experience for family, friends, and ourselves.

Rob was amazing to work with! He was kind and patient every step of the way. He recommended great vendors - one being our floral vendor that just exceeded all expectations! Even when we scrapped our table decor at the last hour, Rob pulled through and it turned out AMAZING! I would highly recommend Rob for someone who is looking for guidance and a care-free process with design and day-of coordination. Our special weekend was truly magical & perfect for us in every way…Rob had a huge role in that! We will be forever grateful for him!

I thought I could plan my wedding myself, and then as we were approaching the wedding with only 6 months to go I was in complete panic and needed help.Rob helped me bring my many intricate ideas together to look like the most fabulous decor. One situation in particular, we were struggling with our cater. Our venue let us know they too were having issues with our cater. Rob reached out on my behalf and essentially cleaned up a really giant mess that another company made. The amount of work and stress he took off my shoulders was insane.

We hired Rob to serve as our wedding officiant and he was the perfect match for us. He listened to our requests and made suggestions as appropriate, but at the end of the day he perfectly encapsulated everything we wanted and more. From keeping our wedding party wrangled during our rehearsal to making sure we stayed smiling during the ceremony, to being a fellow pop-punk fan, Rob delivered and then some. Rob is down to earth and wrote our ceremony from the heart— there wasn’t a dry eye in the room! We recommend OSO IN LOVE for any and all of your wedding needs - thank you again, Papa Bear!
