Many moons ago, Howie and Lauren first met at the IAC building, during a Samuel Waxman Cancer Fundraiser. Both Howie’s friend, Sari, and Lauren were actively involved with the charity. And as you might have guessed, the two hit if off. Fast-forwarding to 2012: Howie’s proposal last year was a heavily-strategized battle plan that required much time and friend finagling (Lauren had a guest staying for the week!), and even some covert negotiations with a security manager (to obtain off-hours access to IAC)! The proposal night centered around a “walk down memory lane” to several of the couple’s favorite date locations, eventually landing them at the IAC building’s outside courtyard. It was there, that Howie proposed, before they shared a fantastic, celebratory meal at Babbo, the site of their first anniversary dinner date.
Both the couple’s wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers–a beautiful venue for events and special occasions. It was an absolute joy to photograph, and I thank you both for sharing your day with me.
