Having met on the dating site OK Cupid and bonding over beers at a brewery in Chicago, their engagement at Zion National Park was an unexpected thrill. Steve, a history enthusiast, had meticulously planned the proposal during a nerve-wracking hike. Lindsay's tears turned into pure joy as he dropped to one knee, making their Zion adventure forever etched in their story. Their journey continues today living together on the road in a 250 sqft RV, exploring cities, sipping craft cocktails, and reveling in the beauty of each other's company.
