Look of love: Lauren and David celebrated the 13-year anniversary of their first meeting at the Met Gala in 2004 at the high-profile annual event last May. They wed in September 2011
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is such a special place for the couple that when it came time to propose to his lady love in 2010 he chose that very spot.
David suggested that they meet at the Met to look at some new pictures before attending a dinner nearby, but when Lauren arrived at the venue she was surprised that no one else was there but him.
The art work he wanted her to see was actually a series of photographs from their seven years together.
‘I created our own exhibition of our life together,’ David told Vogue in 2011. ‘And I got down on my knee and proposed.
‘Then we went outside and took a carriage ride with a clarinetist and a saxophonist following us.’
Instead of saying ‘I do’ in their home city of New York, the couple wed at the Lauren family’s 17,000-acre Double RL ranch in Ridgway, Colorado, over Labor Day weekend in 2011.
Four years later, in November 2015, the couple welcomed James.
