A True Tinder love story! Mara + Jason both right swiped, had their very first date, and got married exactly three years later to the day. They still hold the tradition of going back to Bar Louie every year for their anniversary. Another tradition they hold is taking a trip between their birthdays every year. Their first year together they took a trip to Brazil – where they fell in love – and the following year they went to Cuba – where Jason proposed at sunset on the beach in Varadero.

Their wedding was a cold February day, but it was absolutely gorgeous. Bridgeport Art Center set the backdrop, and with the help of Fleur – it was stunning. Mara + Jason were the epitome of a happy couple – eager to do whatever the other wanted, excited to spend time with friends and family, making their way around the dance floor and greeting everyone with a smile, kiss, and a hug. It was such a pleasure to be there with everyone – and we are so happy to have captured these moments for you. Mara + Jason, here’s to a life full of traveling, awesome dance moves, delicious food, and everything else that you’ve ever dreamt of – together. Congrats!
