We couldn't have done our wedding without the thoughtful care of everyone at tanaRi. Everything was so well thought out and all their advice was perfect. Our wedding turned out fantastic and it's all because all the excellent work and coordination that they were doing behind the scenes. Hire them!

I found RiRi Patel through a piece she was mentioned in the NY Times on Hindu- Jewish weddings. To say RiRi is the best is an understatement. Not only was she an incredible event producer, she was organized, pleasant, the sweetest person ever, was privy to private moments and had to act as a therapist, and most importantly- put together a weekend I will never forget. I was never the girl/woman that spent nights pinning potential wedding ideas on Pintrest or thinking about my dress. I had no idea what I wanted other than an amazing party that wasn't cheesy. But I do work in TV, and event production is just an extension (or so I thought) of what I know how to do, so I figured- why not put this wedding together on my own? I quickly realized I couldn't when my small ceremony for 20 people became a 4 day Hindu-Jewish extravaganza. RiRi helped me find a venue for my Hindu ceremony, helped site check the Jewish ceremony, color coordinated everything from the Mandap to the Chuppah, worked with my on run of show, suggested places for where my husband could get his Indian outfit and most importantly, helped co- produce with my mother who was a ball of nerves. My only regret is that I can't have RiRI executive produce all aspects of my life. She was so amazing my tiger mother of a mom was impressed. If you are reading this and considering hiring other event producers, don't. Just make life easy for yourself and call RiRi STAT. She is truly a class act/ the best.

The thought of our wedding brings wonderful memories. We had the most amazing time! In a huge part, it is thanks to Tanari Events! We worked with Meghan, who was our coordinator and became a dear friend throughout the process. She witnessed our laughs and tears, love and frustration, all the mixed emotions that come along with such a stressful task of planning a wedding. Yet Meghan made this process seem so smooth and easy. She was super supportive to us throughout all the months, before our big day. She's very creative, proactive, understanding, hard-working, detail-oriented, organized and most of all she is the nicest person on this planet. Meghan was our guardian and a mobilizing force. If it wasn't for her, we would have given up many times. On the day of our wedding, we were able to fully enjoy every moment, because we had the assurance that all the details and coordination of vendors, guests, photographers and videographers was patrolled so well by Meghan. Our guests were in awe, because Meghan provided guidance to everyone. She is one person, but her presence was everywhere during the day, making sure things are happening in the right order. Wherever you turned your head, Meghan was there, with a huge smile, but determined to see that everything goes well and according to the plan. Again, I cannot think of one thing that went wrong. We had smiles on our faces from the morning until the night, and we didn't have to worry about a thing. THANK YOU, Meghan!!! You are a superstar! And we really appreciate your dedication and professionalism. It is thanks to you, that we can smile at every memory we have from our wedding day :-)

tanaRi events was amazing to work with. We had quite an elaborate wedding -- 2 ceremonies, a horse + many other elements that were complicated to coordinate! Our wedding was also destination. tanaRi was extremely organized, detail oriented and professional when it came to dealing with our vendors. My fiance and I would have been so lost without the tanaRi team! I am still so impressed with the amount of effort and enthusiasm the girls had at each and every meeting. They took a lot of the stress off of our plates and really let us enjoy the moment.

Most importantly, the day of our wedding went off without a hitch, and I completely owe that to tanaRi. I am so grateful for their help. I highly recommend the team! They are the best!!

TanaRi events provided my day of wedding coordinator for my wedding. I cannot imagine not having one after seeing everything they did for my wedding. I would have gone crazy without them! They made my day go flawlessly and I cannot thank them enough for it. They paid such attention to detail and made the day go flawlessly. They thought of things I wouldn't have thought of to make my day extra special!!

TanaRi events was incredible. We purchased their partial planning/day-of coordination package (I forget what exactly it was called) for our fusion Indian wedding which took place outside on an apple orchard in CA. TanaRi Events did everything they said they would do and much, much more. They were very patient with us throughout the entire planning process, always keeping us on course with the utmost politeness and attention to detail. They did an incredible amount of research on our behalf, stayed within budget, and got us the best vendors, even continuing to look more if their first suggestions didn't work out for some reason. They completely understood the "look" we were going for (although it wasn't at all traditional Indian and was much more shabby-chic outdoor hippie than Southeast Asian) and never once tried to impose their taste on anything we planned, simply taking what we said and delivering options that matched what we were looking for. On that note, while we did have a lot of non-Indian influences in our wedding, we were ultimately still married by a Punditji in a traditional(ish) Indian Ceremony, and Riri's vast knowledge of all Indian traditions/requirements/etc. was invaluable for both of us (even though my husband is Indian!). Her ability to speak Hindi was also a great help when it came not only to working with our Indian vendors, but also in talking with our families/wedding guests. Finally, and perhaps most importantly of all when it comes to wedding planning, the dynamic duo that is Riri and Meghan was completely invaluable when it came to handling/addressing our respective familial cultures and expectations, occasionally stepping in to help where needed by helping to translate expectations/confusions, but also always knowing when to stay out. In short, we couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Riri was an absolute pleasure to work with in the lead-up to our wedding. We are so grateful for all her efforts in helping to make our wedding and reception even better than we could have imagined!

She and her team went well beyond their role of coordinating the wedding on the day of. We started to work with Riri more than two months before our wedding. She walked us through each and every aspect of the wedding to make sure we considered all the necessary logistics, gave us tips, and answered endless questions we asked along the way. As my husband and I largely planned the wedding ourselves, Riri's efforts helped to relieve us from a huge amount of work and stress the last few months before the wedding. She became our go-to wedding advisor, and was more than happy to do what she could to help us in every way. Riri always put our needs first in delivering expert guidance and support. She also did a terrific job in communicating and coordinating with our vendors on key day-of logistics and decision points, so that we didn't have to.

On the day of the wedding Riri and her team, Megan and Nicole, were just as amazing. They coordinated just about every detail to a T, did a terrific job managing all of our vendors and handling difficult issues (including difficult vendors!) that came up so that my husband and I, as well as our families and friends did not find out about or have to worry about anything! They also helped my husband and I to stay calm and relaxed on the day of, which went such a long way towards letting us enjoy the day and have fun! Many of our guest described the day as “flawless” or even the “best wedding/reception” they ever attended. We could not have achieved that without Riri and her team!

In short, if you are looking for a wedding planner/coordinator who is responsive, detail-oriented and well organized, creative, professional, generous and caring, look no further and choose Riri!

I hope I have lots of room on this... because I'll need it!
We found Riri and TanaRi Events in the winter before our June 2013 wedding. We were a long distance couple in DC and Dallas, our families in Connecticut and Texas, with the wedding venue located in NY. So... already a bit all over the place to start! We needed help.

I wish I could take credit for discovering Riri and her staff, but the credit goes to my then fiancé. I consider the day he sent me the link to her website completely blessed.

Where do I start? Riri herself is an absolute joy, pleasure, and inspiration to work with. She is, at baseline, just an extremely good, honest, and empathetic person, who has a true refined talent for eliciting beauty and quality from any part of one's event. Not only that, she is realistic, mindful of price ranges and budgets, and has a fantastic network of remarkably talented contacts that all come together to make your day truly unforgettable. (Even though this review is way overdue, it allows me to share that four months later, I am STILL getting 'that was the best wedding ever!' e-mails :-) )

From helping us to construct our 5 day event (yes, an Indian wedding!), to helping us choose our invitation & programs vendors, to coordinating and facilitating our decor conversations, finding our baker, coordinating with our caterer, going above and beyond and helping with our Sangeet-- when she did not even have to-, to the day- of amazing execution, to helping to arrange the after party that has also been labeled 'best after party ever!' by others.... Riri, Jillian, and her staff continuously went above and beyond at every turn. I cannot-- absolutely cannot- imagine how any of it would have even happened without Riri.

I am just so grateful that we found her and she was able to help us translate the endless moving parts into an event that was enjoyable for everyone. Thank you SO much, Riri & Tanari-- we can't express it enough!

I worked with Meghan Day as my wedding planner from TanariEvents and I can only say that the whole experience was completely seamless. From the minute I contacted them, Meghan made herself readily available to me from beginning to end.

I did not know much about how to plan a wedding and we only had 5 months in which to do it. Meghan had contacts for everything and helped me make decisions on things I never would have thought to consider.

All I can say is that if you don't want any surprises on the big day and want someone who will be there until that last piece of cake has been eaten, go with TanariEvents and go with Meghan! She is incredibly professional, kind and helpful and will make the whole experince as stressLESS as possible.
