Inspired by the diversity of the lines of couples at the New York City Hall Marriage Bureau (which are about to get even more diverse, hooray!), Executive Producer Jonathon Tisch wanted to document this “microcosm of the world” in a film that anyone can relate to.
On the youthful end of the spectrum of couples, we are presented with high school sweethearts, Gabriel and Danielle. Read More
