Romance buoyed by the Thames
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sat., June 7, 2008
Maybe it was a fluke, that each heard the river calling.
But their love is what it is, and the river runs through it.
Sarah BAIER and Walter PARKINSON met by the Thames River, were engaged along the Thames and today, in front of nearly 200 Friends and family, are to marry by the Thames.
It started three years ago, at a beginner rowing class out of Springbank Park in London.
BAIER joined at a friend's behest. PARKINSON signed up after seeing an advertisement for Learn-to-Row while driving home to Lucan.
Turns out, she had her back to her future husband the first time she got a good look at him.
"He was in the boat behind me and I looked back. Then, I did a double take. I looked back again," BAIER said of that moment near a boathouse.
"I noticed her right away, said a grinning PARKINSON.
"After a week or two, I was definitely more looking forward to seeing her than the rowing."
It was a good summer on the river for the two twenty-somethings, who had joined the club looking for nothing more than a new experience.
They got to know each other during the classes, with small talk and secret glances.
"We'd be in separate boats, so sometimes you'd just try to catch a glimpse as his boat went by," BAIER said.
After class, a couple of times a week the entire group would go out for drinks.
Then, they had their first date -- July 23, 2005, when PARKINSON took BAIER to see his family-owned racehorse, Lady D M, compete at Mohawk Raceway in Campbellville.
And that was that.
Two years later, PARKINSON took BAIER to one of his favourite haunts, the Thames behind his grandparents' farm in Thorndale, and proposed.
Today, they're to marry in Fanshawe Conservation Area, along Fanshawe Lake, which as BAIER pointed out, "is still water from the Thames."
The theme is intentional, they say, because the river has been a thread through their relationship.
"I do have this special place for the river now," said BAIER. "When we were rowing, we'd fall into it sometimes and we really wanted to shower as fast as you can… but I still love the thought of coming down to the river."
Asked if they'll continue to mark every special event by the Thames, the couple smiled.
"I think it would be neat, if and when kids come along, to take them here," BAIER said.
I do have this special place for the river now.
Sarah BAIER

HARRIS stuns guests by getting married
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Former Ontario premier Mike HARRIS married long-time companion Laura MAGUIRE Saturday night, surprising guests at their home in Woodbridge, north of Toronto.
HARRIS, 60, who recently divorced his second wife, Janet HARRIS, wed MAGUIRE, 41, in a private ceremony.
Derwyn SHAY/SHEA, a former Tory member of the Ontario legislature and an ordained minister, performed the service.
Insiders said the 150 guests invited for a barbecue were caught off-guard by the wedding, held in a tent beside the pool.
"It was a complete surprise. Mike's brother stood up and said they were getting married," said one friend.
In attendance were HARRIS advisers Tom LONG, Leslie NOBLE and Deb HUTTON, members of provincial parliament Tim HUDAK and John BAIRD, and broadcasters Ken SHAW and Ted WOLOSHYN.
It's HARRIS's third marriage and MAGUIRE's second.

Meghan CHERRY and Jeremy BAKER -- Match
Saturday, February 19, 2005 - Page M4
Travel ardour, restless curiosity and affection for cottage life not only shaped Meghan McINTYRE CHERRY, but were also a conduit to romance with Jeremy David BAKER.
Endowed with those same touchstones, Mr. BAKER, after graduation from Wilfrid Laurier University, ventured to the Netherlands to explore his roots. "I was lucky enough to get a job," he says, "and it kept me there a couple of years."
Meanwhile, Ms. CHERRY donned a backpack after her third year at Carleton University in April of 1999 and trekked to Europe with a friend's directive, "You have to stay with my friend Jeremy."
When she arrived, with scarcely time for introductions, he was off for the weekend. Graciously, his roommate hosted Ms. CHERRY, but it was Mr. BAKER who had seeped into her psyche, and she suggested that he visit her cottage in Ontario that summer.
The CHERRY family had summered on Boshkung Lake in Haliburton for three generations. "My dad had me up on skis since 4," Ms. CHERRY says, adding that her parents, as part of a water-skiing troupe from the lake, had skiied through Ontario's lake and lock system to present a baton-enclosed letter from Toronto's mayor at the opening of Montreal's Expo 67.
Other halcyon cottage memories she recalls are of her "Auntie Zena" CHERRY, The Globe and Mail's legendary society columnist, who died in 2000. "She spent many summers at the cottage. There were singsongs, campfires, hot rum toddies and ukulele-playing. Those were the good old days for my grandparents."
Her aunt's fabled advice, "Marry your best friend, someone you enjoy spending time with and just being around," would prove prophetic when an intrigued Mr. BAKER accepted Ms. CHERRY's invitation in the summer of 1999.
He discovered that they shared the kinetic thrill of water and snow sports. As a child, he had braved the perilous waves of Lake Simcoe at his family cottage to become a pro on the catamaran. While his father had him downhill skiing as a youngster, Ms. CHERRY, now a part-time instructor, was bused every Saturday to Blue Mountain for skiing lessons.
Encouraged by how complementary their skills were, Mr. BAKER returned for a brief December visit. He suggested that they navigate Europe together in the summer of 2000, following her anticipated graduation. Her aunt's advice resonated as Ms. CHERRY fused Friendship with adventure and headed off to explore with cavalier Mr. BAKER, thoughts of marriage on the back burner.
"One of my favourite places was mystical Turkey," Ms. CHERRY says. They also visited her relatives in Ireland, where they stayed in a thatched cottage and had "the real Irish experience." Then, paragliding and rafting in the Swiss Alps, the two began "to depend on one another," she says, and returned together to Toronto a committed couple.
"We didn't have a typical courting period," says Mr. BAKER, now an operations manager in Toronto for Prometric Inc., his employer in the Netherlands. "And although we were close, it took us a while to get to know each other."
After a brief stint in marketing communications, Ms. CHERRY took a postgraduate practicum in special-events management at Humber College and is now a trip director for the Wynford Group.
The couple, both 30, travel extensively as part of their work, so Ms. CHERRY was not surprised in January, 2004, when Mr. BAKER took her to dinner at the Doctor's House in Kleinburg on the pretext that his employer had suggested a compensatory dinner for his excessive travel. He then spirited her to Collingwood, where in a letter he recounted the joy of their shared experiences, expressed his love and proposed.
Their nuptials at Saint John's Anglican Church in York Mills on October 24 conjured much "sentiment" for Ms. CHERRY, as Revs. Mary LEWIS and Hollis HISCOCK officiated. She had been baptized and confirmed and had taught nursery and Sunday school there.
After their reception at the Old Mill in Toronto's west end, the newlyweds boldly tackled the 125-metre-deep Blue Hole, pioneered by Jacques Cousteau, 100 kilometres off Belize. The difficult and dangerous dive is not for the faint of heart. The couple dove 40 metres down, along a sheer wall until it opened into a huge water-filled cave. "It feels like you're entering a Gothic cathedral with its massive stalactites and stalagmites," the new Mrs. BAKER says. Playing down the danger, she adds, "Gorgeous grey reef sharks dropped down the wall to see us, and we swam with them."
A week later in Belize, accompanied by a solitary guide, the pair tested new limits. With only headlamps, they swam, crawled and climbed, water up to their necks, oxygen reduced, to the Actun Tunichil Muknal (Cave of the Crystal Sepulchre), a restricted, technically vulnerable, sacrificial Mayan cave site. Exhilarated, they stopped to reflect in the eerie blackness, skeletons nearby, the bride says. "We were holding hands, listening to the waterfalls, headlights off."
After facing that abyss, new-home construction in Stouffville seems tame.

Nicholle BAKER and John RUSSELL -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, August 13, 2005, Page M6
As he was being gurneyed into surgery for a liver transplant in 1998, John Charles RUSSELL smiled at his tearful family.
After being ill for years, Mr. RUSSELL was philosophical about the procedure. "I was weeks away from dying. I'd either make it or I wouldn't; live or die. I finally had an opportunity to have a life and was ecstatic," he said.
Drained of his vitality, he had succumbed to the ravages of hepatitis C when he received the call from the University Health Network, Toronto General. After the operation, he was told that his liver had been so cirrhotic that it actually fell apart.
As he convalesced, his heart was captivated by the "warmth in the eyes" of Nicholle Elizabeth Anne BAKER, a nurse on the transplant team. "She was cute, and had a wholesome look, someone I could see myself with, but at the time we were both in relationships," he says.
His condition required ambulatory visits during which the pair maintained a rapport, and as he recuperated, Mr. RUSSELL would often sneak peeks at Ms. BAKER working in her hospital office. In March, 2004, now unattached, he sent out his new e-mail address and an immediate mouse click from Ms. BAKER queried his well-being. "I looked down at my desk, saw a pair of Colorado Avalanche tickets, knew she liked hockey, and asked if she'd go."
Emotionally fragile after a past relationship, and circumspect about dating a former patient, she accepted but kept it platonic by meeting him at the game. Despite living only blocks from the Air Canada Centre, he optimistically parked his car there, and persuaded Ms. BAKER to accept a lift to the Oakville GO station.
"As we sang along with the radio, I felt strange. Those little endorphins were going off. When we said good night, I had butterflies flying around in my stomach," he recalls.
Euphoric, and contemplating a second date, he then floored it to Whitby, where his Friends were playing a rock 'n' roll gig. Noting his early arrival, they concluded, "The date must have sucked," but he exclaimed, "It was the best I ever had."
Ecstasy turned to agony when the following Friday he read her e-mail. The decorous Ms. BAKER had decided that dating a former patient mandated a velvet brush-off. "If I were in a different role.... I don't want to be construed as hurting you in any way.... you are a wonderful person," she wrote.
Mr. RUSSELL, who had been a successful developer before his illness, was not ready to capitulate and fired off an impassioned response: "I'll go to another doctor. I'll switch to the transplant unit in London."
"I poured my heart into it," he recalls, pleading, "It's about taking a chance in life. Whatever happens, happens."
At the time, Ms. BAKER felt defined by her snappy convertible, home in Oakville, her decision to adopt two girls if still single at 35, and her career as a transplant co-ordinator. Yet, in a rare display of vulnerability, she shared his poignant e-mail with colleagues, and her mother, who, all moved to tears, urged her to follow her heart. Her mother's proviso to the gourmet cook: "If you're not quite certain, don't impress him; just have him over and order pizza."
On their second date at her home with the hockey game as a backdrop, Mr. RUSSELL could hardly contain himself. "I wanted Nicholle to know everything there was to know about me, the good, the bad and the ugly. I gave it all to her in three hours, this is who I am and I'm not changing," says Mr. RUSSELL, now 45, who had emerged from a divorce and had no children.
Ms. BAKER was left without doubts and shortly took him to meet her mother. He wheeled up in a silver-bullet muscle car. Surreptitiously, with maternal concern, she noted down his licence-plate number but now asserts, "I love him because he makes my daughter's spirit soar."
It was Oakville's historic lighthouse at the end of the pier that illuminated the couple's commitment in July, 2004, only a few months after their first date. In response to Ms. BAKER's "I love you," Mr. RUSSELL posed, Does that mean you'll love me forever?" He then dropped to one knee and proffered a ring.
Family and Friends were thrilled although Mr. RUSSELL could not resist self-parody. "Nicholle dated academics who went to the U of T. I went to the University of the Street. My Friends think something's wrong with her if she's with me, and suggest she check her eyes," he laughs, but admits he's redefined his life.
A recent honours graduate in Human Service Counselling and winner of the Award of Excellence from George Brown College, he now plans to work with addicted youth.
Ms. BAKER, now 33, left the transplant unit, moving to Public Health as a high-school liaison in injury, violence and substance-abuse prevention for Halton Region. But with a master of science in nursing focused on transplant hepatology, she stays apprised of progress in the field. "I changed so that should anything happen to John I could be at his side," she says. "And living and working in the same community has made me more politically active, and socially aware."
On June 25, candles flickered to a string-quartet rendition of Over the Rainbow at the Carlu. The bride in a silk blush Justina McCaffrey gown, clasping white peonies, was escorted partly down the aisle by her father, and then led by her stepfather to the Rev. Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON, where the couple exchanged personal vows.
"It's been like a fairy tale," Mr. RUSSELL says. "I was broken down and sick, fortunate enough to receive a transplant, and Nicholle happened to be there. I thought I knew what love was, but never did until now."
A thankful new Mrs. RUSSELL urges readers to visit the Trillium Gift of Life Network at http: //www.giftoflife.on.ca.
I've already signed up to donate. But then, I could hardly say no. Mr. RUSSELL is my new son-in-law.

Naomi Malka SHUPAK and Mark DRIMAN -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, August 27, 2005, Page M4
Born just nine days apart and together since they were teens, the only thing Naomi Malka SHUPAK and Mark DRIMAN seem to be at odds about is how they met. "I remember distinctly being introduced to her on the beach my first year at [Timberlane] summer camp," Mr. DRIMAN says. Ms. SHUPAK, on the other hand, says she didn't notice her future husband until 10th grade at the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto.
But since the pair's first official outing -- to their Grade 10 prom -- they have been exclusive. "I don't really know anything about dating, because I never really dated," admits Ms. SHUPAK, 25. "But I don't feel at all like I'm missing out."
After graduating from Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto in 1998, he did a year at Thornlea Secondary School, while Ms. SHUPAK began studying at York University. The following year, they both enrolled at the University of Western Ontario in London.
Mr. DRIMAN graduated with an honours degree in business administration and was awarded the University of Western Ontario Scholarship of Distinction in 2000. Ms. SHUPAK completed first a B. Sc. in psychology, then an M. Sc. in medical biophysics and won both the University of Western Ontario Chancellor's Prize in Social Science and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Canada Graduate Scholarship in 2003, as well as several other research awards.
Despite hard work at school, the couple did find time to spend with Friends, attend charity balls and participate in a memorable, and moving, tour called March of the Living, which brings Jewish youth from all over the world to Auschwitz and Birkenau on Holocaust Memorial Day and then to Israel for Independence Day.
Upon graduation, the couple were separated again when Mr. DRIMAN took a position as an investment banker at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Toronto. On weekends, Ms. SHUPAK, still at University of Western Ontario, visited him, and he spared her the lonely schlep home by accompanying her back to London on Sunday evenings. On Monday, he would wake up early and whistle back to the city on the train just in time for work.
On March 18, 2004, on the eve of Ms. SHUPAK's master's dissertation, Mr. DRIMAN made their separation that much easier -- by bringing her an engagement ring. "I think we have known forever that we wanted to get married," Mr. DRIMAN says. "All the things that happen in life, the big steps -- moving away to go to university, going on your first trip without your parents, graduating, moving out, milestones in one's life -- we've been through them together."
Mr. DRIMAN has been helping Ms. SHUPAK with yet another milestone. Following in the footsteps of her father, aunt and uncle, Ms. SHUPAK is currently studying medicine at the University of Toronto. To keep her at her best, Mr. DRIMAN provides some "chicken soup for the fiancée." Says Ms. SHUPAK: "On many occasions, he'd come from work to prepare a meal while I was studying for exams and then return for what could result in extremely late nights for him at the office."
The two were wed on July 10 at Adath Israel Congregation, with Rabbi David C. SEED officiating. Included in the wedding party was four-month-old Madeline Anne, the bride's niece, who was carried down the aisle by her parents Debbie and Marc BAKER. The bridesmaids held rose bouquets, each in a different hue of pink. The bride wore a strapless dress adorned with crystals and pearls, designed by Jim Helm, underneath a bolero jacket.
The celebration was not without some sadness. Ms. SHUPAK's grandmother passed away in January. "They had talked on the phone many times a day," Mr. DRIMAN says. In tribute, the ceremony was performed with her wedding ring and the bride wore her heirloom pearl earrings, complemented by a pearl necklace from the bridegroom's grandmother, Ray CHUDY.
Under the chuppa, the bride symbolically circled her bridegroom seven times. This tradition is said to represent creativity (the earth being created in seven days) and a sevenfold bond between the couple and their families. Now, the two just need to agree on their own creation story.
