Run Down the Aisle to "I Do"

If you're a regular--or somewhat regular--follower of the Today Show, especially tuning in to watch the features that stray from generic news clips and updates, then you might know what today brings on the Today airwaves. Today Throws a Wedding caps off its 10th wedding during this morning's coverage, featuring the vineyard-themed wedding for runners Nick Cordes and Leigh Daniel. The key word here is runners, as I'm sure Liz and I can both attest that the wedding countdown wouldn't have been as exciting this season if these two runners weren't among the competitors or then selected as the wedding couple.

Liz--she beat me to the punch--shared her excitement over the news months ago when Nick and Leigh were still competing for America's vote (speaking of which, did you cast a vote for this couple?) and we both quietly followed them through the competition rounds and daily wedding choices in the past weeks. Admittedly, I fell off the wagon just before the final couple was selected, but loved checking in again to see my faves watching their choices for wedding dress, attendants' attire, rings and honeymoon. And I was pumped even more when Natalie Morales casually mentioned how Nick proposed to Leigh: strolling up to her and asking her while she was cycling on a stationary bike. Not only do these two have a sweet proposal but they also have a less-than-ordinary courtship thanks to meeting while in the Olympic development program and getting kicked off the team for falling in love (or something like that--here's the story told by Today). Talk about true love to put their goals of one day competing in the Olympics aside.

I can't wait to check out the ceremony, and see if there are more runners among the attendants. Stay tuned to NBC for more coverage, or follow their Twitter feed online. I'm curious to see who goes for a run before walking down the aisle. Photo grabbed from today.ttu.edu. Posted by Kate
