Lindsay and Benjamin share an uncommon bond. Their love story is one of deep commitment to each other, a strong foundation of support and faith from their families, and a testament to the faithfulness of God.
As children, Lindsay and Benjamin grew up as acquaintances in the same circle of families. But it wasn't until later into adulthood that their friendship would develop into something deeper. Both of them entered careers as firefighters, working in separate departments, and eventually rekindling their friendship over their shared profession. Benjamin left home for 3 and a half years on active duty with the Marines, and when he returned, they began dating. Eight months after that, Benjamin was on one knee in the snow at the top of a ski hill, asking Lindsay to be his wife.
Their August wedding day was, by contrast, warm and golden-hued. Lindsay and her girls wore ethereal gown and flower crowns, and the family home was thoughtfully decorated with little terrariums, generous blooms, gold-tipped feathers, and an abundance of magical twinkle lights.
