On October 20, 2012, eight years after meeting, and just seven blocks from the apartment they share now, Lauren and Jason got hitched in an elegant celebration befitting the season.
A couple hours prior to their arrival at their venue, The Green Building, Lauren and Jason saw each other for the first time that day. A pre-wedding scouting trip resulted in picturesque locations around Red Hook, Brooklyn. The couple’s nerves calmed down shortly after a few snaps of the camera.
Lauren and Jason shared their first private moments as husband and wife in the speakeasy room at their venue. Jason shot Super 8 footage of his new bride, and Dara and Trent shot footage of the couple, which was incorporated into the pair’s final video in a split-screen format.
Vintage postcards were set on a table with pens and a sign that read: "To forever remind us that you were here to celebrate our special day, please take a moment to write us a note. Place it into the box or take one home to write and send at a later date." The cards were hung, and Lauren's mom has since sent a few to the couple on a sporadic basis.
To personalize the speakeasy area of their venue, Lauren worked with her stationer to create a series of framed prints. The artwork took its cue from the song "Autumn in New York," with the lyrics of the seasonal song on display. One verse now hangs in the couple’s apartment.
