Lindsay Ellingson’s Husband
Lindsay Ellingson is married to Sean Clayton. The long-time couple sealed their marriage on July 12, 2014, at a wedding at The Inn in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina.
They were engaged on Thanksgiving Day 2013 when Clayton proposed at his parents’ home in Ohio. The place was the first place the couple ever talked about getting married, as Ellingson told Brides.com, which documented their beautiful wedding with a pink and rose gold theme.
Ellingson had chosen rose gold to match the pink and gold ring Clayton had given her the day she was engaged. She made her first public appearance with the ring on December 10, when she was spotted at a screening of the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at the Highline Stages in New York City.
On her big day, Ellingson wore a wedding dress by French designer Sophie Theallet, while her husband chose a classic tuxedo by Tom Ford. Ellingson’s two bridesmaids were her sisters, wearing pale pink wrap dresses. The couple danced for the first time as man and wife to Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home.
After their engagement in 2013, reports appeared that the couple had been a couple for 6 years, but according to their love story, which can be seen on Brides.com, the couple met during the opening party of Jay Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne in 2011.
According to their story, Clayton bumped into her on the dance floor and she immediately noticed how cute he was. They accidentally bumped into each other again and somehow met from then on.
Supermodels like Ellingson often fall for Hollywood A-Listers or music superstars, but her husband Sean Clayton has the relatively modest job of a medical sales representative. Ellingson revealed that her most memorable travel experience was when she traveled the Hana Highway in Hawaii with her husband.
