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 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.
