Episode 25 R and R Event Rentals
How To Make Your Special Day Perfect?
It’s simple. Give the décor over to R and R Event Rentals.
In this interview, I ask Raman and Raveen to share their best advice for anyone planning a wedding or special event. Raman says to focus on three things: Really look at what you will be getting from each vendor to eliminate confusion. Be organized. And Relax! Take the time to enjoy the event because it will go by so fast.
Once Upon a Time…. Raman and Raveen got married. When they decided to plan their own wedding they found themselves frustrated with the choices they had. Neither of them wanted to pay the high rental fees for everything they needed to design their wedding celebrations perfectly. Many of the vendors they met with didn’t have what they wanted. So instead they bought everything they needed, thinking they could just sell it later on. That plan backfired wonderfully and the result was that Raman, a former accountant, and Raveen, a loss prevention specialist, discovered their hidden talents for design and execution of stunning, beautiful event décor.
Raman and Raveen have built R and R Event Rentals into the successful business it is today by putting the same care, attention to detail, and love for each event, that they would at their own wedding, birthday, baby shower or special event.
Over and over again their clients say “Out of all the vendors we worked with, R & R were our favorite.” Reviews like theirs don’t happen by accident.
Raman and Raveen both grew up locally, both attended James Logan High School here in Union City, though not at the same time. They met each other while both attending Cal State East Bay. Several months after their own wedding, two of their friends were also getting married.

Do you want us to come and help with your wedding?” The rest, as they say, is history. Now years later Raman and Raveen have become one of the top Indian inspired event décor specialists in the Bay Area.
Raman and Raveen share with our listeners about their most significant challenges such as striving for work-life balance.
In our conversation, I also asked them to educate me a bit on some of the traditions involved with a Punjabi Wedding Ceremony. Raveen explained to me that
