Love and the Olympics: 3 Tear-Jerker Videos

Olympicproposal2

Talk about igniting a flame! Check out these videos of three Olympic couples broadcasting their love (and proposals) to the world.

David State proposed to his girlfriend, Christine Langham, while running in the London 2012 Olympic torch relay. Langham was expecting to just watch him run by with the rest of the crowd, but instead he stopped, pulled out a ring — and then continued his journey with the torch!

Even though it’s not a proposal, this video from 2010 Winter Olympics gets us going. Two key moments to watch for: the sheer joy in Marianne St-Gelais’ face when her longtime boyfriend Charles Hameline wins gold for the men’s 500 meter short track speed skating; and when he jumps up and kisses her. Get your tissues ready!

If you’ve ever wondered whether those gorgeous ice skating couples are really just platonic teammates, you’re going to love this one. Not only were Rena Inoue, U.S. Olympic skater, and her partner John Baldwin dating — Baldwin actually got down on one knee on the ice after the pair performed in the 2008 U.S. Figure Skating Championships! We love watching Inoue slowly realize what’s happening. That day, Inoue went home with some bling on her finger and a silver medal around her neck!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
