Noth and Tara, who is 27 years his junior, started dating in the early 2000s, after first meeting at Manhattan's The Cutting Room, a concert venue he co-owns. Tara was working as a bartender at the venue. They got engaged in 2009, and their wedding ceremony took place in April 2012, in Maui, Hawaii.
