Ajay Manaktala is no stranger to DJ'ing, corporate events, emcee'ing and just also happens to be one of the best Indian wedding DJ's in America.


There's a reason brides are constantly asking about Ajay but full credit goes to his team that makes him successful like Parag, Bhavin, Ali, etc.. (AND MORE).

Every DJ says they're THE best, but Ajay knows this industry is always changing and humility and ego need to play hand in hand.  It's not talent, it's just constantly trying to make each event better and more special than the last. 

There's a reason why


  • Quora recognized him as a most viewed Indian Wedding Expert

  • He blogs about Indian weddings and wedding planning in general,  

  • Tries to spread the gospel of Desi culture and entertainment wherever he goes. 

Our culture is awesome. 

— Ajay planning his own wedding in Tulum, Mexico!

Trends and Tradition are something we at Special Occasions are constantly trying to balance. ​

We're used to all the Desi culture growing up, but we also want to have a super cool-swag filled wedding. Hip hop or Bhangra? Jazz or Sufi? 

Ajay gets it. He grew up Anaheim, in Orange County California and has been DJ'ing since he was waiting tables at an Indian restaurant in Brea.

Our team gets it.  They have done everything from birthday parties to million dollar weddings. 

We all grew up juggling Paratha and Pizza too.

We grew up asking relatives in India to bring clothes, yelling loudly on international calls and we live and breathe Desi culture. 

Why cant Indian weddings or Desi weddings have both?

Let the work speak for itself and please make the choice that's right for you.
