Who We Are:


We are Ron and Shelly! We've been in the Valley a long time ~Ron was born and raised here, and Shelly since 1980. Our families are here, and we love and cherish Southern Oregon.

Ron started On The Side in 1990 and has been providing event services ever since. Now with partner Shelly, they work together designing events from weddings to corporate parties to private dinners. Between the two there's not much they can't tackle.

We love the creativity and passion that goes along with styling and producing an event. Nothing feels better than to have a beautiful event and a happy couple at the end of the day!

Why On The Side:

Ron's background is in Hotel Restaurant Management and Banquet Management and design.The level of expertise he provides to make events successful is invaluable. No detail will be missed in planning. From food service and coordination, to making sure everyone has champagne at toast time, the timing of events, to making sure there are enough trash cans. Additionally he is an exceptional designer and decorator.  He has a great eye in display, staging and set up. Shelly has worked alongside Ron for 7 years now. Her love of decor and details mean she is usually the one matching Just the Right shade of pink, designing the tabletop, adding her feminine touch. She also generally handles more of the "business" end since her background is in finance. 

When you get a quote from us for Planning & Design, it includes whatever we need to bring to make it happen. We have a large inventory of decor, vintage pieces, props, table top, catering equipment, and backdrops.  If we need to source pieces, we do that too.

When you hire us for Set Up, Day Of & Tear Down, you won't have to worry about a thing. We will put the chandeliers into the tree. We get the drinks on ice. We bring out the cake when it's time, and serve it. We take care of the garbage. We cue the bride.

We are a professional full service event management company.
