Lindsey Cutshall is shown in the center of this photograph, held by her mother, Kathy Cutshall.

Jason Allen and Lindsay Cutshall didn't just sign their names or leave a perfunctory we-were-here message in a spiral notebook left for visitors on a remote Jenner beach. 'The sun is going down in the horizon,' Cutshall, 22, wrote. 'All I see is the beams shining on the cliff face. And I know that God is awesome.' 'As I stir this Mac and Cheese,'' Allen, 26, penned afterward, 'I think to myself what a wonderful life. I've just spent two awesome days with my fiance Lindsay. Can life ever be so perfect.'
