Briefly tell us about your wedding experience and how the both of you felt on your big day.

We were thrilled to host our wedding in our neighborhood and at a venue that generations of our families could have reverence for. Both of our parents were married in LA and our community means a lot to us. We wanted a very elegant evening that still felt local. Our goal was for every guest to feel like their best self, elegant and comfortable enough to tear up the dance floor, which we all did!

Jason: I thought I might be nervous, but I spent the day full of excitement and calmer than I expected. 

Erin: I was so happy the day felt easier than I expected too, and spending the morning at home with my bridesmaids and women who I love really made me feel embraced. Seeing everyone happy was incredible.

Wedding song:  “The Way” by Jill Scott. The lyrics evoke the giddy feeling of being in love and remind us of the best parts of our day being each other. It’s poetic and was so romantic to dance to.

What are you most looking forward to as a married couple?

Building our life as a family. We would love to have kids and expand the memories we make together.


Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish them many years of wedded bliss.
