Bride: Joanna Biasini

Groom: Thomas Crawford

Date of Wedding: 3/7/15

The Proposal : Joanna and Thomas love to be active and go on runs together at a trail in Nashville so it was no surprise when they decided to go on a run on a Friday evening. Thomas had a different idea for a run on this night though. Thomas had set up 3 different signs along the way about a mile into their run earlier that day. As Joanna was coming around the corner (in the zone) she completely missed the first sign but turned around to look to see the last part of the sign that said "keep running." Joanna didn't think anything of it, assuming it was motivation for other runners on the trail (que Thomas' panic of Joanna missing everything). Joanna then comes around to the next sign and this time paying more attention reading "someone wants to meet you," which left Joanna intrigued and wondering who these signs could be for. When she came to the last sign that said "Jo, my name is Huck, can we be a family" and saw her new little pup sitting there she knew it was for her but thought it was the sweetest way of giving someone a new puppy. As she was loving on little Huck she saw a little tag attached to his collar and when she opened it, she read "will you marry my daddy." Joanna turned around to see Thomas on his knee popping the question....and of course, she said yes! On a day that was forcasted to be 85% rain at the time they were headed to go on the run, the sun came out with no rain in sight.  Could not have been more perfect of a proposal!

As the Editor & Event Stylist, I have been to several weddings and seen couples that love each other and enjoy each other’s time. Every once in a while, I will meet a couple that really inspires me. Tom + Jo have a deep passion with a mutually respect & care about each other in a way that is hard to describe. It is something that I think every couple should strive to have connection Jo + Tom do. I think is perfectly expressed in these pictures and will be featured in our Issue out this end of this Summer.
