Lisa & Benjamin in Sonoma, CA

Lisa and Benjamin found each other on Match.com. She knew that he was a keeper when he agreed to camp out with her on a cold evening with nothing but a sleeping bag and each other (to help raise awareness for Ugandan children who walk all night to avoid being captured by militants). The Bride Lisa Hardy, 39, graphic designer The Groom Benjamin Imelhaine, 45, investment banker The Date September 12 Then, a year-and-a-half after meeting, Benjamin proposed while the two were vacationing in Greece. For their wedding, Lisa cleverly combined their initials, L and B, and came up with a pound theme. This idea popped up in many of the details, from the programs to the scale centerpieces.
