These 4 Couples Got Engaged at the Boston Marathon (With 2 Finish Line Proposals Included!)

During the Boston Marathon yesterday, it was all about spreading love — literally. Because last year’s bombings had an enormous impact on survivor’s relationships (including The Knot Dream Wedding couple Rebekah Gregory and Pete DiMartino), four sweet couples got engaged during the marathon! Keep clicking to see each couple’s photo — but as a warning, you may need a tissue or two for some happy tears!

Greg Picklesimer and Carla White

Greg proposed to Carla after he finished the marathon and told CBS Boston, "After last year I realized the people you love and your life can be taken so easily, so quickly. I didn't want to lose that so I decided to come back and seal the deal."

John Volkman and Jodi Nili

John proposed to Jodi during his 16th (!) marathon at the top of Heartbreak Hill. "Heartbreak Hill never seemed so easy. Of the 16 times up Heartbreak Hill, this was the most rewarding. It was pretty amazing," John told The Fresno Bee.

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.
