Kristin ANDERSONS and Jason VAN BRUGGEN -- Match:
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, March 5, 2005 - Page M6
On January 22 in Halifax, 93-year-old convalescing Zizi ANDERSONS dressed up, poured herself champagne and listened on the telephone to her granddaughter's nuptials in Toronto. Only months before, Kristin ANDERSONS and Jason VAN BRUGGEN had been planning a summer wedding, but brushes with death in their respective families and news of an impending birth prompted them to redefine their priorities and pull together a ceremony in a matter of weeks.
"All of these events occurring at the same time brought everything into sharp focus," Mr. VAN BRUGGEN says.
Products of preppy Havergal and Upper Canada Colleges respectively, both say their families were paramount in shaping their lives. "We had incredible opportunities growing up, family vacations in Europe, at resorts and I practically grew up on the lake," Ms. ANDERSONS says.
Although a reluctant Mr. VAN BRUGGEN moved at the age of 15 with his family to the Netherlands for the rest of his high-school career, he acknowledges today that his parents made the decision with the best of intentions. "I improved my Dutch and French, but was still able to come back here in the summer to go to camp and now understand what my parents were trying to do and how it benefited me.... They gave me lots of opportunity and I embraced every aspect of the outdoor lifestyle."
The couple, now both 32, had instant chemistry when they met in December of 2002 at a party thrown by a mutual friend. They found that they share an inherent love of the outdoors -- Mr. VAN BRUGGEN is an avid canoeist, mountain climber and competitive rugby player while Ms. ANDERSONS danced, competed in tennis, skiing and volleyball and rowed crew for Havergal and the Argonaut Rowing Club.
Each had also recently returned to Toronto after spending years abroad. Mr. VAN BRUGGEN, a graduate of Queen's University in Kingston, was making a foray into filmmaking after travelling and working in international development in Africa. Ms. ANDERSONS, meanwhile, had studied film at the University of California at Los Angeles and attended the L.A. Film School on a scholarship. But she says, "My family and Friends were here. I'd been away a long time and my agenda was to see if I could move home."
By March of 2003, encouraged by her new flame, she did, and decided to pursue a master's degree here in her original discipline, clinical psychology.
The romance didn't diminish Mr. VAN BRUGGEN's wanderlust, but his travels brought their relationship into focus.
He spent the winter of 2003 filming in South America, jaunted home and was off again to India last summer. "It put a strain on the relationship," he admits. The realization that he had travelled to 75 countries gave him pause to reflect and confirm Irish author George Moore's dictum, "A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."
When he returned, the couple purchased a home in Riverdale and Mr. VAN BRUGGEN proposed between touchdowns during Monday Night Football. "It was strategic," Ms. ANDERSONS jokes, "Jason now has an excuse to watch every week."
Plans for a wedding this summer by her parents' cottage were foiled on every front. They had a church but no firm date and nearby reception venues were all booked. There was just one sure thing, Ms. ANDERSONS says. "I found my wedding dress, the only thing that solidified."
In November, the pair was overjoyed to find that Ms. ANDERSONS was unexpectedly pregnant. "I never thought it would be that important to be married before we had a child, since we were spending the rest of our lives together," she says pensively. "If it were somebody else, it would not phase me for a second, but I realized how important it actually was to me."
Ms. ANDERSONS quickly shared her joy with her mother, but it was tempered by news that Grandmother Zizi in Halifax needed an emergency operation.
"My mother was ecstatic," she says, "but our exciting news was soon accompanied by devastating news -- Jason's father had a heart attack days later." Relishing the prospect of a grandchild, he survived his near-fatal condition and subsequent surgery.
The couple decided that now was the time to act, Mr. VAN BRUGGEN says. "We said, 'Let's get married for ourselves, our unborn child, and the sake of our families, with Kristin's grandmother mentally well enough to understand.' "
Within weeks, she and her mother whipped up a wedding, Ms. ANDERSONS says. "Doors just opened, [the University of Toronto's] Trinity chapel was available, Massey College for a reception across the street, the trumpet soloist, the stringed quartet and the choir were free."
On the blizzardy evening of January 22, Reverend John BEACH officiated in a luminescent Trinity College Chapel as celebrants held lit candles. Teary emotions peaked during the processional as the bridegroom's resolute father walked up the aisle with his wife, followed by the bride's maternal grandmother and father, and then Ms. ANDERSONS with her brother Steve. "I'll always remember his squeeze before he turned me over to my parents," the new Mrs. VAN BRUGGEN says.
Her husband says he hopes to be able to impart the same strong sense of family to his own children. "Goals change when you start conceiving of yourself as a family," he says, adding that his travels affected his social awareness and religious and cultural tolerance. "I'd love to educate my children by exposing them to the exotic, but within the parameters of keeping them safe."

Long marriage follows accidental meeting
City couple celebrates diamond anniversary
By Jonathon JACKSON, Sun Times Staff, page A3
Helen VERMILYEA remembers telling the minister of her church in Toronto that she had been married for six months and thinking that was a long time
He said that was not a particularly long time, telling her he had been married for 10 years.
That's not a long time either, at least not in the eyes of VERMILYEA and her husband Doug. Thursday was the Owen Sound couple's 60th wedding anniversary.
They celebrated a few days early, with a party last Saturday at Harrison Park. Most of their family was able to attend, filling the community centre beyond capacity.
"Some had to eat outside at the picnic tables, (the hall) was so full," Helen said.
Doug VERMILYEA and Helen McGREGOR met entirely by chance in about 1940. Doug, a native of Regina, was in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was looking for a girl named Helen when he knocked on his future wife's door, unaware the girl he was looking for lived next door.
Helen, an Annan native who was working as a nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, was captivated by the handsome serviceman. He came back the next day to invite her to church and they married about three years later near Annan, at the Johnson Presbyterian Church, which is no longer standing.
After a honeymoon near Bracebridge, she went back to Toronto and he went overseas. She came home after giving birth to the first of their six children and they were reunited after he left the air force in 1946.
"We bought a house from Helen's father and that's why we moved from Toronto up to Owen Sound," Doug said.
In Owen Sound, the VERMILYEAs owned Hatton Hall Catering for 33 years while Doug also worked at the RCA plant. After the factory closed in the mid-1970s, he went to work as a caretaker at the Knox church in Owen Sound, finally retiring at age 77.
"The time goes, raising a family. It was time consuming," said Doug, now 85. "You get old before you realize it, but we still don't feel old."
"I don't know where the time has gone," said Helen, also 85. "We've had a very very busy life."
It was during their career as caterers that they first heard of a couple who had been married for as long as 50 years. As she had done early in her marriage, Helen's commented it was a long time for a couple to have been married.
"1 thought that was wonderful, to have a couple married that long," she said.
The VERMILYEAs, who have 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, are proud of the seven certificates they received in commemoration of their milestone anniversary. They're from Owen Sound Mayor Rick BEANEY, Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Member of Provincial Parliament Bill MURDOCH and Member of Parliament Ovid JACKSON, Premier Ernie EVES, Prime Minister Jean CHRETIEN, Gov. Gen. Adrienne CLARKSON and Queen Elizabeth.
It's very special," Helen said.

Anna Ruth CHRISTIANSEN and Paul Charlton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
After hosting a pool party in the summer of 2003, Joanie SKINNER persistently nudged her divorced brother-in-law, Paul DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, toward her neighbour, tall, blond, beautiful Anna CHRISTIANSEN, a divorcée who was happily raising daughters Corrine and Vanessa, now 15 and 13. Ms. SKINNER would invite Ms. CHRISTIANSEN to her soirees, then insist that a genial Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS escort her on the brief trek home. "Joanie wanted us to hook up, and it got to the point where I was even checking out plumbing in Anna's basement," he laughs.
When Ms. CHRISTIANSEN, who is now 44, downsized from an unmanageable large home and was selling off her furniture, she recalls the furtive glances they exchanged. "Paul came over, stood in the doorway with his girlfriend -- and was uncomfortable because dating wasn't an option at the time."
A year and a half later, free of other relationships, they finally began to see each other, somehow avoiding Ms. SKINNER's radar until October, 2004, when their incandescent glow at the birthday party of Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's niece provided evidence that the mission had been accomplished. "Anna walks into a room, and lights up the place. My Friends call her exotic. She has a great sense of humour and is always smiling," a beaming Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS explains, before going on to describe himself as "a 200-pound, 6-foot-2 inch guy who looks like a Mafia hit man."
Ms. CHRISTIANSEN, in contrast, characterizes Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, who had no children of his own, as "gentle, kind-hearted and easygoing," and delights in the fact he has a great relationship with her daughters. When the two girls chose to experience living with their remarried father in his new home, Ms. CHRISTIANSEN was "crushed." But Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's support helped her adapt to weekend parenting. "Now I know what it's like for a dad -- but I probably see them more than I did, because it is every weekend. We go shopping, have fun, and they enjoy fine dining," she explains.
An honours graduate of Halton Business Institute, and also a graduate of design at Humber and Fanshawe Colleges, Ms. CHRISTIANSEN has interests that are more vroom than Vogue. "I was raised on the water, always had a boat and can carry on a conversation about cars and boat motors…" she notes. Employed in the family business, Bronte Outer Harbour Marina, she was "tired of doing the boy thing all my life," so in 2002 she took on supervisory responsibilities at the marina's new conference centre.
A branch manager for Yellow Transportation, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, 43, shares her interest in all things automotive, and he is particularly dazzled by the 1958 Biarritz convertible in her parents' collection of 65 classic cars.
In March, 2005, still feeling the effects of an earlier car accident, Ms. CHRISTIANSEN required spinal surgery. Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was panicked by the attendant risk, but obliged her by going to work: "I called the hospital every five seconds, until I was told not to call. My heart was broken. I was on edge -- I thought what would I do if I didn't have her?"
By September, he was determined to merge their destinies. Home from work one day, she was greeted by her pug Lucy (who had a diamond ring affixed to her dog collar), champagne on ice and Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, anxious to pledge his troth.
"We didn't want to put everyone through a second marriage and thought we'd just elope," she says. But plans for a Vegas/Elvis nuptial package were vetoed by elder daughter Corrine. "I've been through seven years of your being divorced and dating, and I want to be in your wedding!" she insisted.
At the Harbour Banquet and Conference Centre, on February 25, in a candlelit ceremony before 90 formally attired guests, the pair were married by Rev. Bethany BEATTY- CHIRE to the accompaniment of a harp and violin quartet. With "feet on the ground," Mrs. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS says, "we get it more than the younger ones do."

It's aye aye for happy pair's 'I do'
Crowning their romantic courtship, a Sarnia couple has won the Tall Ships wedding contest and will say their vows on deck August Carolyn WONG, Free Press Reporter
Watching the tall ships in Sarnia Bay was a big part of childhood for Justin HAYES and Jaime BECHARD. In August, as the majestic ships return, they'll become an even larger part of their lives when the Sarnia couple ties the knot aboard one of the historic sailing vessels.
The Tall Ships Dream Wedding Contest called for romantic proposal stories from couples all across Canada.
Contest organizers chose four stories, including the Sarnia couple's, from more than 250 entries. The stories were posted on the Tall Ships Sarnia Web site for the public to read and choose their favourite one.
"I was shocked and just blown away, BECHARD, 23, said of her reaction when she found out she had won. "I just thought, 'Pinch me.'"
The couples' romantic stories also were aired on television.
"We went for a taping and heard some other great stories," said HAYES, 31. "I had no idea that this would happen."
The couple's story included a surprise horse-and-carriage ride to a Sarnia restaurant overlooking the river, where HAYES ordered a dessert topped with a diamond ring.
He promptly got down on bended knee and said, "Jaime, today we've spent a beautiful day together and there is nothing I would rather do than to spend many more days with you in the future. You are the most important person in my life and I will always love you.
"Will you marry me?"
After BECHARD accepted the proposal, the couple went to the restaurant where they first met to celebrate with family and Friends.
"We were looking for total romantic appeal, as well as the way they spoke about it," organizer Bernie BROCKLEHURST said. "Uniqueness, thoughtfulness and creativity were the main things."
The couple, engaged May 17, can expect a stress-free wedding August 22 with the clothing, hair, makeup, limo and reception all taken care of in a package worth $10,000.
"I always said, 'When we do get married, I want something different, but our options are limited,'" BECHARD said. "But this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Tourism officials expect thousands of visitors when the 13-vessel flotilla of tall ships puts into Sarnia August 21-24. Besides shipboard activities, the festival includes an August 23 concert by the Doobie Brothers, the legendary California pop-rock band.
Tall Ships Sarnia
- When: August 21-24.
- Where: Sarnia waterfront.
- Cost: Admission varies, from $5 daily for adults for access to the grounds to $14 for a weekend pass for grounds access and boarding privileges. Admission is less for children and seniors.
- Information: Telephone (519) 337-4474 or visit the Web site at www.tallshipssarnia.com

Couple ties the knot on Roxy's stage
By Bill HENRY, Sun Times Staff, Page A3
Instead of "get me to the church on time," it was to the theatre for Collene and Sean BULLOCK's wedding Wednesday.
As a longtime member and also the box office assistant there, Collene GILBERT- BECKETT said the Roxy Theatre stage was the natural place for her wedding.
"We're not overly religious, so it was a great place to get married," Collene said. "It's absolutely beautiful but not in a church. It's a great alternate location."
She has worked at the Roxy box office with her mother Jondre BECKETT, the box office manager, off and on for about five years. The couple chose Wednesday afternoon for the wedding because it was the third anniversary of when they began dating, BULLOCK said.
About 100 people attended the wedding, on stage with a backdrop from a recent play, and the reception after in the Roxy lobby. It's the first wedding there in several years, although another is scheduled later this month.
"It was certainly something very special for us," BULLOCK said. "And the stage was great because with all the light you couldn't see the audience, which helps with the nerves."
The newlyweds live in Owen Sound.

Fiona CARVER and David COOK -- Match:
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, January 8, 2005 - Page M6
In the 1970 film Classic Goin' Down the Road, a pair of Maritimers make their exodus to a Toronto paved with promise. Aspiring Nova Scotian actor David Alexander COOK, odd man out in a family that includes 14 doctors, did the same in 1995 (though with happier results) and enrolled in theatre studies at Ryerson University, taking to heart Bruce Cockburn's lyrics: "It must get better, if far enough I go."
Meanwhile, Fiona Catherine CARVER, a graduate of Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Quebec, and a protégé of Canadian clown duo Mump & Smoot, blasted off with zany comedy sketch troupe the Atomic Fireballs while writing and acting.
Having developed an allergy to latte-flavoured egos, Ms. CARVER found it refreshing when she first encountered Mr. COOK in June, 2001, at an agency party in Toronto, where she moved after graduation.
"We both had the same agent, and as soon as he told me he was from Nova Scotia, a huge 'bing, bing, bing' went off, because I love East Coasters -- salt of the Earth, no façade," says Ms. CARVER, who spent her childhood "all over Southwestern Ontario" as the family accompanied her father, an itinerant Anglican minister.
The couple's initial confab reverberated with seductive subtleties. "We set a second date at Ted's Collision on College Street, both a little nervous how it would go," he says. "We talked for about five hours and not once about acting... a huge plus."
They had been dating for a couple of months when Mr. COOK announced his acting nirvana awaited in Vancouver. A disconsolate Ms. CARVER, fearing at best a lengthy separation, wanted to break it off. "It was bittersweet. Now we were in love and he was leaving."
With more than a month remaining before his departure, he implored her to stick with the relationship and "see what happens."
"My wanting to go to Vancouver had nothing to do with Fiona," he says. "I had never taken any time off to travel, or go anywhere else."
But the fallout from September 11, 2001, had decimated the film industry, and his trip was as rewarding as a losing lottery ticket. "I got a little bit of acting work and couldn't even get a part-time job in a restaurant," Mr. COOK, 27, recalls.
"We were sort of on the cusp of being in love, but after about a month in Vancouver, I knew she [Fiona] was really special to me. There was a hole in my life."
Upon his return in March, 2002, their romantic paradigm shifted. "A kind of tension had crept into our lives and it culminated in a communication that something wasn't working," he says. Where cellphone-to-cellphone had sufficed, the relationship faltered in the reality of cheek-to-cheek, but with a period of introspection they emerged on solid emotional ground.
Mr. COOK's wanderlust resurfaced during the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, when a Hollywood agent convinced him to ply his trade in Los Angeles. He arrived in January of 2003 only to discover those green pastures were well grazed, prompting a hasty retreat. "They sort of blew me off, pretty brutal, and I ran into the common stumbling block of not having my working papers. Los Angeles is a weird place, void of a soul. It made me realize that I would never be as happy without Fiona as with her."
A beneficent Ms. CARVER allows, "I was starting to feel nice and nestled in when he took off again, but I thought it was fine, something that he wanted to do and it was his being away that made him decide to propose."
He returned the next month on Valentine's Day, ready to ask the question, but the timing wasn't right. "I have an aversion to it [Valentine's Day] because it's so commercial," he says. So the next day, he made his pitch, though sans ring.
" 'I have to talk about something but don't have the proper hardware,' Ms. CARVER, 31, recalls his introduction. "Do you need a hammer and nails?" came her witty reply. "We can go to the hardware." They were soon engaged.
Huron Church Camp in Bayfield, Ontario, conjured fond family memories of somnolent summers for Ms. CARVER, so there on Labour Day weekend, before a folksy amalgam of congregants camped out for the occasion, her father, Reverend Neil CARVER, performed the rites of marriage.
Fellow Fireball Samantha BEE -- now also a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show -- emceed the reception, and friend Beau DICKSON/DIXON assembled a band with Ms. CARVER and her sister Sarah singing backup for Hey Man Do You Want to Boogie, the trio's original collaboration when Mr. DICKSON/DIXON was 5. Chef Esan AZORE prepared the mostly vegetarian fare and the Nova Scotia contingent supplied wild blueberries and maple syrup for a pancake breakfast the next day.
The couple will continue to pursue their acting careers from Toronto. Ms. CARVER has just completed a commercial for the Ontario Lottery Corporation and Mr. COOK, with numerous Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio plays to his credit, can be caught in a forthcoming episode of CTV's The Eleventh Hour.

Kelly Lynn Irene BELBIN and Lee Garrett Patrick MYSKA -- Match:
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, January 21, 2006, Page M4
A mutual friend, convinced that Kelly BELBIN and Lee MYSKA would hit it off, shaved a few years from his age, added several to hers and persuaded the pair to meet in February, 2002.
The ploy didn't entirely work -- "I think he thought I was younger than I was supposed to be," recalls Ms. BELBIN, now 28 -- but intrigued by his conversation, she gave him her number, which led to dinner and a movie.
The pair were soon an item. Although their lives meshed with a plethora of common interests, a semi-generational gap occasionally reared its head. Mr. MYSKA, now 41, is a devotee of seventies and eighties television. "It was funny she didn't know anything about shows I'd watched when I was younger: Sanford and Son, The Rockford Files or Bob Newhart," he says. However, shared evenings watching cable enhanced her appreciation for these small-screen classics.
Still, Ms. BELBIN wasn't sure how serious he was -- until he introduced her to his now 89-year-old grandmother. At their first meeting, "she was quiet, listening to what I had to say," Ms. BELBIN recalls, "but the next time, she asked my religious background and how I grew up." For the future bride and groom, both from close-knit families, it was an important sign.
Ms. BELBIN felt mutual respect and compromise bridged their difference in age. "At parties, I was nervous. I didn't know his Friends, and they'd talk about their kids and the old days," she says. Yet she fondly notes that Mr. MYSKA encouraged her to tread her own path. "I think it's understanding you are in different spots in your life," she says. "My Friends still like to go to clubs, and Lee's done that."
Earlier, work at a summer camp for adults with disabilities had Ms. BELBIN abandon two years of psychology at Trent University to enroll in the development services program at Humber College. That led to her present position with Community Living Toronto, where she instructs in a variety of subjects including social and life skills. The union activist and steward says her philosophy and politics can clash with those of Mr. MYSKA, a manager of trust accounting at Manulife Mutual Funds.
Fortunately, the pair have learned to separate labour relations from personal relations. "Sometimes the discussions do get a little heated," Ms. BELBIN says. "We… have an open mind about each other's views. If it gets too tough, [we] drop it and revisit it.
"We balance each other."
On October 22, at the Toronto Board of Trade's Airport Centre, officiant Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON performed a non-denominational ceremony.
To the rhythm of This One's for the Girls, the bride's aunt, Nancy PAUL- DUDDY, presented a slide show of women whose influence had helped sculpt the bride. Her inspiration came from the valiant effort of the bride's grandmother, Cara PEACOCK, who succumbed to cancer September 9 without realizing her dream of attending the wedding. "The girls in our family have an unbroken bond," asserts Mrs. PAUL- DUDDY.
Less than a minute into their first dance to Van Morrison's Sweet Thing, Mrs. MYSKA, who will retain her maiden name professionally, lost a shoe, but didn't miss a beat. "I knew if I kicked the other one off, I would have fallen on my dress for sure," she laughs.

Accident not able to crash wedding
By Jamie NGO, Sun Media, Sat., August 4, 2007
Toronto -- Jennifer BELL's dreams of a perfect traditional wedding came crashing down in a nightmarish motorcycle accident on Friday the 13th.
The 36-year-old and her fiance Kevin WOOD, 37, of Brampton, were on the way to a rehearsal for their Haliburton wedding that was set last month for the next day, July 15.
Kevin glanced in his rear-view mirror to see his fiance losing control of her bike and sliding across the shoulder.
"All I got was a glimpse of the chrome glistening in the sun as it rolled," he said yesterday.
She ended up with torn muscles and tendons in her leg and multiple breaks in her arm that may be paralysed for life. But the couple was still determined to get married.
And they did, yesterday in an informal outdoor ceremony at the health-care facility where Jennifer is receiving treatment.
In a wheelchair with her arm in a sling, Jennifer came down the aisle as Kevin waited under a gazebo decorated with lace and flowers. The groom also chose less-traditional wedding apparel -- a Hawaiian shirt and black cotton shorts.
As Kevin knelt down on his knee to place the ring on her finger, he shouted, "It's about time" and Jennifer shouted, "It's done!"
Medical staff blew bubbles instead of throwing rice.
"I didn't care if it was bedside, I wanted to be married to Kevin," Jennifer said. "This is all I ever wanted."
Despite the accident she hopes to ride a motorcycle again.
"I have no doubt that if we can make it happen, I'll get back on a bike," she said.
