Five-Star Review

Rob made my Boho Disco dreams come to life! He was so wonderful to work with and made our day so easy and made it possible to enjoy every moment. I went back and forth on whether I needed a day of coordinator and am so happy I moved forward with Rob! I could have never pulled it off without him!


Five-Star Review

Rob was fantastic. He handled correspondence with vendors well, but my main appreciation was everything that he handled the day of the wedding. Between setting up table decor, putting together our last-minute wedding arch purchase, and actually handing the payments to other vendors, we had nothing to worry about that day. We had an all-vaccinated wedding and were checking proof of vaccinations at the door, and Rob and his assistant Jenny handled that checking and were so helpful (even if a few of our guests gave them some trouble at the door). Rob also handled the arrival of our late night bites, facilitated the fix of a silly napkin error on the part of our caterers, and was just generally super helpful and kept us in the loop without constantly bothering us with minor things. Fantastic experience, would highly recommend.

Rob came in at the perfect time. My husband and I hired a wedding planner a year and a half in advance to our wedding. We got to within 5 months of our wedding date and were having issues getting any response out of our original wedding planner. That's when we learned that Rob was in the same business and I had reached out to him to ask him for advice on what to do. He immediately responded with what should have happened up until that point and advised us to go a new a route. Rob told us he was available that Saturday of our wedding and he would love to jump on board. We did and never looked back. We had lots of ideas in our head that were having trouble bringing to life. We told Rob what we were thinking and he immediately sprang into action. We had a demo board within 2 weeks of hitting go! He was bringing our visions to life and we were getting even more excited! For us, design, decor, and day of planning is what we needed most. Rob knocked it out of the park! We know for a fact that our day wouldn't have gone so smooth if it wasn't for Rob. If there was a problem we had no idea about it! We trusted Rob to make the decisions that needed to be made and we are truly honored that he was able to be there for us during this process! Give Rob and OSO in Love a huge thought when thinking about your wedding. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

Thank you Rob for going above and beyond to make our wedding successful in 3 weeks. It was wonderful to work with Rob from the beginning to the end, Rob planned our wedding, coordinated it on the day of, and provided sound system. Rob found us the vendors that provide exactly what we need in timely manner. And he is especially thoughtful about decorating the venue, he knows the key questions to ask and created a beautiful space that is just like what we envisioned. During the wedding, Rob is such a wonderful coordinator. He made sure the wedding happen on-time even though there was an unexpected incident. The wedding went smoothly and elegantly because of his coordination.

We had a great experience working with Rob on our wedding in May 2022. We were interested in working with OSO IN LOVE because it was a LGBTQ+ owned business. Rob was helpful in finding us local vendors that could help us bring our vision to life, as we lived in New York City at the time.

He listened to us, offered insight and helped create a very memorable experience for our guests from across the globe by incorporating personal elements that celebrated our American and German heritages.

We would highly recommend working with Rob!

Rob did an amazing job as the day of coordinator for our wedding. We hired him a couple of weeks before our wedding which is pretty last minute. We were lucky that he was available. Rob was very meticulous in everything he did.

He met with us online and told us exactly what to expect. He understood the vision of how we wanted our wedding to be. He made a detailed timeline of wedding, and communicated it with every vendor we had hired so everyone was on the same page. We had a lot of vendors including a strings quartet and a magician! He visited the wedding venue with us prior to the wedding to learn what to expect.

On the wedding day, Rob arrived at the venue before the first vendor arrived, met the venue staff, and coordinated everything. He was very professional. Everything (really everything!) went to plan due to his meticulous planning. All our guests and family were very impressed by how smoothly everything went, and how kind and professional Rob was. Rob was the last person to leave the wedding venue. He organized the clean up and consolidation of materials to be returned so that we had very easy pick up the next day.

Overall Rob was simply amazing. If we had to redo the wedding, we would rehire him without any hesitation!

Rob was great to work with and helped a lot with both the design and execution of our wedding. He and his team did a great job executing a complete flip of our ceremony space to make it ready for our reception in a timely manner. He also has great connections within the industry that really saved us some money. Thanks Rob!


Five-Star Review

My husband and I had the privilege to have Rob be our officiant and work with us on our wedding. He was amazing!! He served as our officiant and he made the ceremony very personal to us and our story of love!! We even had tons of our guests tell us that it was one of the best ceremonies they have been to.

Not only did he serve as our officiant, but he also coordinated all of the decor for our ceremony. I let Rob know what colors and flowers that were part of the wedding and just let him take control. I was blown away with how beautiful it was.

I can't say enough how amazing it was to have Rob a part of our special day and would highly recommend him to everyone I know!!


Five-Star Review

Highly recommend OSO IN LOVE to help with planning your special day and making it one you and all your guests will always remember .

From start to finish Rob was wonderful to work with. From the first contact to the special day he made sure the planning was as stress free for me as possible. From design to details of ceremony, music, reception, dance, no matter how big or small Rob made sure it was just how I envisioned it. He has an exquisite and creative eye for design and offers many ideas. He loves and enjoys what he does and was dedicated to making our wedding day truly amazing.


Five-Star Review

We feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Rob on our "Starry Winter Wonderland" wedding. Everything went absolutely perfectly thanks to Rob's expertise. One of the most important things to us was that our wedding feel personal and uniquely ours. Rob did such a good job listening to us and not only bringing our vision to life, but elevating it. He immediately understood what we were going for, and was our partner at every step of the way. He offered expert guidance and had connections to other vendors, services, and supplies that helped us save a ton of money. That left more than enough room in the budget for some charming little touches he dreamed up - like a "Warm Welcome" hot cocoa bar when guests arrived or a "starry night" backdrop with hanging Edison bulbs. Rob also designed and printed all of our paper materials, and they all looked phenomenal. His creativity and eye for design were so valuable and appreciated. He also, of course, helped make sure we got all our vendor contracts in place by the right time, and made sure nothing got missed or fell through the cracks. Wedding planning is overwhelming (more than we realized at the outset), but we felt confident knowing Rob was there to advise and direct. 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!
