tanaRi events’ wedding: Madhavi and Kunal

tanaRi events had the distinct honor of showcasing Madhavi and Kunal’s love story. The more we got to know about the two, the more we fell in love with their love story! The charming couple are not just two of the sweetest people we know, but are a power couple; Madhavi is a scientist and Kunal is a finance managing director! Apart from that, Madhavi and Kunal are a Jain couple, followers of a religion that preaches tenants of harmlessness. Adhering to their cultural values and preferences, tanaRi events were given strict orders on making sure nothing during the wedding weekend is wasted.

They first kicked off their pre wedding celebration on the Aqua Azul yacht with family and friends at sunset, setting a beautiful and romantic start to their wedding weekend. The next day on the way to the wedding ceremony at Tribeca Rooftop, family and guests followed the specially made pedicab from Rickshaw Revolution, dhol player, and band into a fun filled celebration. Over 200 guests were first served delicious food from Kailash Parbat pre-wedding and then  watched the exchanging of the vows surrounded by natural ornaments.

Cress Florals used earthy tones and inspiration from environment, and let nature truly be at its best with adornments like imported succulent plants from California that were placed under terrarium glass containers. Retro styled glass bulbs were also used to enhance the mandap area for an artistic vibe. Keeping the decorations to a minimum, the couple had requested to use second hand flowers instead of fresh ones, knowing that usually flowers get thrown out after the wedding day.

The wedding venue place had then shortly transformed into a reception area, where Dimple Bombay Talk served their famous savory dishes and Erin McKenna’s delectable vegan Dessert Doughnuts. The beautiful night then ended with the couple rolling out of the wedding in style, with a Rolls Royce where Kunal surprised Madhavi with a penthouse loft in Brooklyn at the Wythe hotel  for their honeymoon night!

We are grateful to all the guests, vendors, and the lovely couple for helping put on such a magical night!

Top 10 Bollywood item songs on tanaRi events’ list for your wedding reception!

So it’s time to select a play list for the DJ at your wedding.  You have a variety of guests from grandparents to teenagers, so you definitely want to incorporate new Bollywood and also the classics.  But there are so many songs to choose from, how can a bride decide?  Don’t worry tanaRi events can help you!  Here are our top ten Bollywood item songs we love to get the party started with!

1)    Chammak challo – Ra One: This popular song is about a charming “moody girl” who is not ready to listen.  With Bollywood beauty Kareena Kapoor and Akon’s vocals for the chorus, this song brings Bollywood and hip hop together for an awesome dance fusion!

2)    Sheila Ki Jawani – Tees Maar Khan: This song will definitely get all the young women on the dance floor to strut their stuff!  Although this film did not do well in the box office, this song was the biggest hit of 2011 with Katrina Kaif as the leading lady.

3)    Kajra Re – Bunty of Babli : This is probably the item song of the decade!  Groups love to perform this song in front of a bride and groom.

4)    Mera Naam Chin-Chin Choo- Howrah Bridge:  A great choice for the elders in the family!  From the film Howrah Bridge, it’s sure to bring back some memories! 

5)    Piya Tu Ab To Aaja- Caravan  –  The quintessential cabaret item number by the legendary Helen.  This is one of the most culturally important Hindi film songs, thanks to our all time favorite dance queen!

6)    Ek Do Teen- Tezaab:  A timeless song that’s still loved today! Our personal favorite, Madhuri Dixit, the Maharashtrian beauty had captured the hearts of many in this upbeat item song.  We love watching Anil Kapoor in the 80s before his SlumDog Millionaire and Mission Impossible 3 fame!  A sure hit amongst the crowd who will be counting on their fingers through out the chorus!

7)    Yeh Mera Dil- Don – This Bollywood remake from the 70s will make the parents and young adults want to dance!  Kareena Kapoor did a fabulous job in this super hit movie Don.

8)     Deewangi Deewangi – Om Shanti Om : This is a great song for the bride and groom to walk out on!  The video featured some of the hottest Bollywood celebrities such as Rani Mukherjee, Kajol, Priyanka Chopra, and Karisma Kapoor!

9)    Love Mera Hit Hit – Billu Barber – It looks like Shah Rukh Khan has the midas touch when it comes to hit songs!  This song was a break out hit, and fun to dance to!

10)  Shuba Hone Na De (Tu Mera Hero)- Desi Boyz  –  Desi girl is out and Desi boyz are in! This is today’s latest hit that is upbeat, fun, and everyone can sing along to the chorus!  This features John Abraham, Akshay Kumar & Deepika Padukone
