How Kevin Lazan Met Rachel?
Kevin Lazan has always been interested in music and movies. He met Rachel Platten in New York in 2006. She was an aspiring singer at that time. The two got on well together. However, when they started dating, their first date didn’t go as smoothly as they expected. Lazan inadvertently took her to a place which turned out to be a gross, dingy, and lower Eastside dungeon type of a bar. Rachel later recounted that probably his friend had played a prank by misguiding him. Lazan was absolutely embarrassed and kept saying, ‘Oh my God! This is not what I meant to bring you to… Oh my God!’
Platten was impressed with Lazan’s kind nature and his love for music and movies. The two dated for nearly 4 years. He proposed to her along a tree-lined carriage walk in New England.
The Traditional Jewish Wedding
Rachel wished for a homely wedding and didn’t want another ‘instant wedding-in-a-box.’ She took pains to plan a unique occasion to remember.
In 2010, Lazan and Platten got married in a traditional Jewish wedding at ‘Mount Hope Farm’ in Bristol, Rhode Island. The bride wore a plain white one-shouldered gown, while the groom was in a tuxedo with grey tie. The wind-swept farm setting provided a distinctive backdrop for the ceremony.
The Supportive Husband
Lazan has always encouraged Rachel. Platten didn’t achieve much success with her first two albums, ‘Trust in Me’ (2003), and ‘Be Here’ (2011), but he believed in her and encouraged her to show perseverance.
In 2015, her ‘Fight Song’ proved successful and brought her fame. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton played the ‘Fight Song’ during her campaign rallies in 2016, which made it even more popular.
Platten’s song ‘Superman’ from her album ‘Wildfire’ is special for her as she wrote it for Lazan when he was away looking after his ailing father. She expressed her feelings, ‘I couldn’t be there as much as I wanted to be there. I felt really selfish and like I wasn’t being a good partner. And the only thing I could do was write him a song, right? I’m like 3,000 miles away, and I wrote him that song, being like, you have been there for me, very loving and very supporting. And look, you don’t have to be strong right now. I got you. So I’m really glad I got to include that one.’
The Lazan Family
The couple initially lived in an apartment at Battery Park, New York. In mid-2018, Platten announced through social media the good news of her pregnancy. The two then moved to a house in Santa Monica, California. Their baby girl, Violet Skye Lazan, was born on January 26, 2019.
