  • Riri and Jillian were the absolute best planners I could have asked for. After getting engaged, I met with one other planner and looked at a few venues on my own, not clear on guest count, budget or even vibe/ceremony style. I was overwhelmed and trying to navigate unknown territory. Enter Riri and Jillian. These two women provided me with so much advice, guidance and general support that I literally barely stressed during the planning process. Their vision and organization allowed everything to fall into place, assuring me every step of the way that everything would be fabulous, and it truly was. tanaRi events did everything from coming up with a beautiful vision, helping me find and choose vendors, coordinating with family, and tackling items that needed more coordination with grace. Above all, they were extremely organized and kept a constant eye on the overall time line, which is crucial. My wedding venue was perfect and each vendor went above and beyond my expectations.

  • There are no words that can capture my gratitude to the planners at tanaRi events. Meghan was my planner for my wedding and she is an incredible one! Throughout the wedding planning process, Meghan was attentive, smart, detailed-oriented and most importantly, kind. From the day we met, Meghan was understanding about the complexities of a mixed-culture wedding. She heard my concerns and continued to provide solutions and suggestions through the planning process. While my contract with tanaRi was for month-of and day-of planning, Meghan continued to check-in regularly as we prepared for the big day. When it came time for walk-through's Meghan spent a full day with us finalizing details at the hotel, venue and after party locations (even though this was well beyond her scope). She helped us with a full itinerary and reviewed it with me prior to the wedding day. On the day itself, Meghan arrived with her team punctually and ready to take on the day. My sisters even commented o... Read more

  • I am really glad we choose tanaRi events for our wedding planning. Jillian took care of everything. She and her team were reachable at all hours and adjusted to our changing needs to make our wedding perfect. We did not have to worry about a thing on the day of the event and were able to relax and have a good time. There vendors were professional and competent in their fields. I would like to give a high praise to Jillian- she payed attention to detail and took care of the little things that made a difference. She is organized, cheerful and has a calming presence making her a great person to work with. Thanks. If you are considering a wedding planner, I would recommend it. We were grateful we did and felt it was well worth the money.I highly recommend tanaRi!!!

  • Let me start by saying that tanaRi was the best money that I spent during the whole process of my wedding. To give you a little background, my husband and I are a bit older (in our 40s), very busy professionals in New York City and from different cultures (he's a nice white boy from Michigan and I'm the Indian-American girl whose parents immigrated to the US in the 60s). That said, we were really looking for someone who would not only take care of wedding planning for us, but also help us to put together a sophisticated wedding that would be age appropriate for us and also a wedding that would bring together elements of both east and west...and accommodate 500 people. This was a very tall order, and to add to the complication we were planning to get married in Harrisburg, PA (my hometown), where the amenities and services aren't quite what they are in New York or Philadelphia. tanaRi events absolutely rose to the challenge! I chose tanaRi events because of all the wedding planners I... Read more

  • When we were planning our wedding, we decided that we wanted to celebrate our respective Catholic and Hindu background all in one weekend here in NYC. Of course, we didn't know where to start....and then we met Riri. We can honestly say that Riri took our simple idea and turned it into an epic extravaganza that our friends and family are still talking about! Riri has access to some of the most creative minds and vendors in the area, all of whom are first-class people. She not only listened to our ideas, but thought of ways to enhance them, all while staying within our budget. Taking into account multiple locations, friends and family from different backgrounds, and a timeline which left very little room for error, tanaRi made our wedding weekend the best weekend of our lives. As a couple we're pretty big dreamers, and we can truly say that tanaRi events made our dream wedding come true! Thank you to Riri, Jillian and the tanaRi team for giving us the stars and the moon!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Jillian from Tanari Events over the summer to plan a wedding at our venue. She was absolutely amazing. We worked with her to plan her client's wedding of 170 guests that took place at Vista Sky Lounge and Ballroom. She is very detailed oriented and quick to respond to emails and telephone calls. The day of the wedding she worked with my staff to set up the room exactly how the client requested. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a perfect wedding day! Thanks for being so great!

  • 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!

  • Riri, Meghan and the team at tanaRi were excellent and a great help with planning out wedding. We only had a few months to plan, since we decided on a date very late, but tanaRi was able to accommodate all our requests. From liaising with our aunt in India, to arranging for a tailor last minute to sow buttons on the groom's wedding outfit, our planners handled it all. Our guests could not believe what we had pulled off with such little time - everything was perfect, and just how we imagined! We highly recommend using tanaRi's services, especially for an Indian wedding. Thank you Riri, Meghan, and the rest of the team for all your invaluable help, and for making our special day such a whooping success :) Aarti & Pratap Pandit

  • 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... Read more

  • 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,... Read more

  • 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... Read more
