Tanari Events have delivered a wedding that went beyond my expectations and dreams. Since I had gotten engaged, it was very important for me to find a wedding planner to help execute so many things that lead up to the big day. What was even more important was someone who could understand and respect the complexity of two cultures coming together so both of our families would be happy. Not only did that happen, but they did so with the THREE back to back events we had. Our guests asked us who we hired because they definitely noticed the amount of detail and work that went into planning the big day and we were very happy and proud to tell them about Tanari Events!
Our main planners, Riri and Meghan who are not only extremely professional but the sweetest and most genuine people you will meet. It never felt like I was planning a wedding, just me gushing about the vision and dreams I had for my wedding. I am a Bengali and my now husband is Guyanese. We have similar backgrounds but our cultures could not be more different. Riri and Meghan went out of their way to research and make not only us but our families comfortable. My father who is a very anxious (and angry) person by nature was my biggest worry from the beginning. I knew that as we closed in on the wedding, especially the big day itself, it wouldn’t take much for my father to snap. However, as of by some miracle, Riri and Meghan tamed the beast and to this day my Dad never fails to mention how impressed he was and how beautifully they handled the wedding. I don’t know what they had said to him or how they were able to calm him without me there, but he had the biggest smile on his face since they walked through my door that morning.
The level of commitment and attention that Tanari Events has shown was extraordinary. They picked up items, purchased ingredients from a grocery store to fulfill my signature cocktail drink dream (Harry Potter themed) when the venue said they wouldn’t. One of the assistants, Erica, even had a pretty bad accident during my wedding but they never blinked, all the while making sure that Erica was taken to the hospital and gotten the care she needed. Who can you think of are that professional, prepared and can handle so many situations like a boss?!
My heart is full and I could not have done it without them, that is the honest truth. They have handled our wedding with such ease, grace and utmost respect, it makes me almost sad because I won’t be able to relive those three perfect days again. Thank you Riri and Meghan!

tanaRi is the BEST!
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. Halfway through the planning process, I engaged them to also plan a welcome party the Thursday prior fo 60 people which was a huge hit. I'm obviously partial, but my wedding was an absolute dream and I can say without a doubt that tanaRi events is the reason (along with, ya know, my husband haha). tanaRi held my hand every step of the way, with Riri literally holding my hand right before I walked down the aisle. I say with zero reservation that tanaRi is creative, professional, and worth every penny. I even joked with Jillian after the wedding that I wish I could take her with me into the rest of life too. 100% recommended.Sent on 08/12/2019
