Amanda Maria DERVAITIS and Matthew Stephen CASSAN -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
Just one look was all it took for Amanda DERVAITIS to fall for Matthew CASSAN, whose brother, Jim, was the high-school sweetheart of her cousin, Laura VANDERLAAN, and also an acquaintance of hers.
The threesome often visited the CASSAN household, where Ms. DERVAITIS remembers admiring family photos. "I said to Jim, 'Wow, your brother is so cute!' But I'd never met him. It was a weird crush," she explains. Not to mention that Mr. CASSAN was in a relationship at the time.
Then, in December, 2000, the plucky Ms. DERVAITIS tagged along with her cousin to a surprise birthday party for the object of her unrequited affections -- hosted by Mr. CASSAN's girlfriend. Undeterred by that salient detail, she admits to "changing six times" before she was ready for the event. Face to face with Mr. CASSAN, at last, she had to cut the banter short when she realized she had been monopolizing the guest of honour.
The following spring, Ms. DERVAITIS, who has a bachelor of education from McGill University and was working at a Toronto learning centre, was in urgent need of a break after "one of the worst weeks in my life." So her cousin, Laura, and Laura's boyfriend, Jim, offered her solace at his family's cottage. There they encountered Mr. CASSAN, who had just completed his animation studies at Sheridan College. Happily for Ms. DERVAITIS, he was now unattached.
Long-time cottagers, Mr. CASSAN and Ms. DERVAITIS saw nothing untoward in sharing quarters. "We got the bunk room," she explains. All night long, they talked about their lives, commitment to environmental issues and favourite pastimes, including Looney Tunes and Samurai Jack.
"It was like a sleepover, when you were a kid," Mr. CASSAN remembers, chuckling.
"My face hurt from smiling so much," Ms. DERVAITIS says, beaming.
Back home, the magic lingered. Mr. CASSAN resolved "to move slowly," then called before the requisite 24 hours were up. Three days later, on a first date together, they watched animated shorts together at a bar. "Growing up, I loved cartoons," Ms. DERVAITIS confides. "Then Matt came along, I was completely enamoured&hellip and he was an animator."
They were inseparable through the summer, and their love was tested when Mr. CASSAN took a job in Halifax and Ms. DERVAITIS returned to school in Montreal that fall. For further studies in speech pathology, she "only applied to Dalhousie. I wasn't willing to go anywhere else." Denied admission due to limited enrolment, she journeyed to Halifax anyway, clerking in a mall and then working as a tutor.
In April, 2003, Mr. CASSAN's animation studio shut down unexpectedly. Three weeks later, the two packed everything into a U-Haul and returned to Ontario. Their impecunious struggles continued until the following October, when Mr. CASSAN landed a job at Smiley Guy Studios in downtown Toronto. In January, 2004, Ms. DERVAITIS, now 27, began training in order to open her own Oxford Learning Centre in High Park.
In June, 2005, a planned first-ever vacation by Smart car to Newfoundland stalled with reports of frigid weather.
So instead Mr. CASSAN splurged on a Dominican package, using funds he had earmarked for a diamond ring.
Frolicking in the Caribbean, Ms. DERVAITIS assumed a spontaneous proposal was whimsical until Mr. CASSAN's pleadings became so heartfelt that they were both overcome with emotion. In the end, the promise was sealed with an $8 ring, a hotel purchase that has not left Ms. DERVAITIS's hand since then.
December 31, 2005, saw a tripartite event at the Trident Banquet Hall in Toronto: the bridegroom's 30th birthday celebration, a black-and-silver themed New Year's Eve fete and the couple's nuptials, performed by Reverend Tina GABRIEL.
The bride's mother, Lucy BELVEDERE, observes: "They are very much in sync, and their openness keeps them in tune with each other.
"Amanda followed her heart."

Shelly CHAGNON and John DATSERIS -- Match:
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, June 25, 2005, Page M5
Despite co-starring in Eugène Ionesco's Killing Game and being the only two in their 1996 Brock University graduating theatre class chosen as teaching assistants in their final year, Friends Shelly Lynne CHAGNON, and John DATSERIS never explored amour. Opportunity lost, they drifted off, seemingly destined for separate spheres. It was Toronto's storm of the century in January, 1999, that precipitated their romance.
Stranded at her work at the Canadian Stage Company, Ms. CHAGNON, then a Burlington resident, was rescued by performer Peter JULL, a former Brock classmate who lived nearby, and coincidentally was Mr. DATSERIS's new roommate. Despite having worked all night, Mr. DATSERIS, in an act of noblesse oblige, yielded his as-yet-unwrapped queen-sized bed to Ms. CHAGNON. " Shelly got to sleep in my bed before I did," he laughs.
"We were snowed in, and Peter disappeared. It was two days of Survivor, that was the reality," Mr. DATSERIS says. They played charades, read scripts and reminisced. Mr. DATSERIS recalls that by the time Peter returned, the relationship had begun to blossom.
Still, Ms. CHAGNON says, "it took a while to realize we were dating. March 21, we went to an Oscar party of Brock graduates, and... that was our first official date."
The two had been working next to each other for a while by the time of the snowstorm, but their paths had never crossed. Upon graduation, Mr. DATSERIS took an entrepreneurial path while continuing to write. "I began to pursue film on the production side to greater understand producing and the creative process," he said. With an associate, he opened an animation company, Fly Paper Creations, and set up shop at Berkeley Castle next to Canadian Stage, where Ms. CHAGNON was planning special events and fundraisers.
With only a sister and his parents in Canada, Mr. DATSERIS was drawn to Ms. CHAGNON's large French-Canadian family. "They adopted me right away," he says. "There was this synergy, where I fit in. Falling in love with her family made me fall more in love with Shelly."
His father had hoped Mr. DATSERIS would find a Greek girl. "You don't understand," Mr. DATSERIS told him. "Her family might as well be Greek: They are loud, drink, eat great food, love talk, politics and are emotional." His father acquiesced: "Okay, same people."
Their lives began to mesh, but the pair, now both 32, put marriage on hold as they pursued career aspirations. Mr. DATSERIS worked for Brainstorm, a communications agency that purchased his business, for several years, then he moved on to Capital C Communications, where he's now Director Interactive. Ms. CHAGNON ventured to Rogers Television, where she is a publicist, and she also finds time to volunteer for a Scarborough theatre group, Stage Centre Productions. Her accolades include: two 2003 Rogers Impression Awards for Outstanding Promotional Campaign for the Hometown Hockey Campaign and a 2004 Galaxi Award for a Rogers campaign highlighting coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Their first years together were bittersweet. Tragically, Mr. DATSERIS's mother succumbed to cancer, and a year later his father died of the same affliction. "Shelly committed to helping us, not only emotionally but coming to the hospital," he says.
Meanwhile, as the housing market inflated, in May, 2002, they made a practical foray into home ownership on the fringe of the Beaches. "It's small -- we refer to it as Queensbury Cottage. Of course we were house-broke, and couldn't afford a wedding," Ms. CHAGNON chuckles.
The death of her grandmother, the family matriarch, also pushed thoughts of marriage further away. As time went on and their grief subsided, Mr. DATSERIS took the initiative.
He commissioned goldsmith Leif BENNER to design a ring. It was a princess cut diamond, vines and leaves engraved with smaller diamonds inlaid in the vines and leaves spilling onto the side of the ring, and similarly on the wedding band, channel set with square cut diamonds.
However, creativity takes time, and his intended July proposal became an impromptu November, 2004, event.
On June 5, a snake appeared from the ravine at Mississauga's Glenerin Inn just before Reverend Tina GABRIEL performed the nuptials. That aboriginal symbol of life force and sexual potency mirrored the couple's shift in priorities: to begin a family, grow their roots, get closer to extended family, have fun and travel.

Barbecue guests treated to surprise as HARRIS married
From Robert BENZIE and Richard BRENNAN
Former premier Mike HARRIS married long-time companion Laura MAGUIRE last night, surprising guests at their home in Woodbridge.
HARRIS, 60, who recently divorced his second wife, Janet HARRIS, wed MAGUIRE, 41, in a private ceremony. Ex-Tory member of provincial parliament Derwyn SHAY/SHEA, 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, MAGUIRE's second.

Beep, beep, it's drive-through weddings
Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
A Londoner will alter life at the altar when she opens Canada's first drive-through wedding window this week. "Obviously this is going to be a novelty," Dale BREWSTER, the entrepreneur who brought London the $99 shotgun wedding at her Crystal Wedding Chapel on Wharncliffe Road, said of her latest chapter in the book of love.
She said she got the idea when she married in Las Vegas 10 years ago.
"The one in Las Vegas is very popular. (People) want to do something different, that's the biggest thing. Why get married conventionally?"
Such is BREWSTER's business philosophy, which is built on rental flowers and spur-of-the-moment lovebirds.
The Crystal chapel opened last fall and does about 20 weddings a month. But BREWSTER expects business to pick up, thanks to the drive-through and, well, other high-profile changes to the Canadian marriage system.
Being in the wedding business, BREWSTER is getting no shortage of calls from same-sex couples.
"I don't care if you're gay or straight, brides want to walk down the aisle," she said. And BREWSTER, the consummate businessperson, isn't letting any controversy get to her.
"This is a privately-run wedding chapel," she said. "I'm not doing this for the good of my health here. I've got to make a living (and) everybody's money is the same colour."
Now her focus is on turning a window facing her chapel's parking lot into a Vegas-style drive-through. Two couples are slated to use it in August -- the first passing through in a pickup truck -- and BREWSTER hopes the attraction will start off in an appropriately unusual way this Saturday.
Two London Transit employees getting hitched have rented -- you guessed it -- a city bus to load up their guests for the trip to the Crystal chapel for the ceremony.
After exchanging vows in the chapel, bride-to-be Karen MORDEN said she and her new husband, Alan BERNARD, will start celebrating with a trek through the drive-through.
"We're both really madly in love and it's just going to be fun," said MORDEN, a 53-year-old dispatcher. "We're just going to have a big party."
BREWSTER doesn't expect the wedding window to cause traffic jams, but she's fairly certain the $169 deal will strike the same chord that brings nearly two dozen couples a month into the chapel.
Whether to renew vows or get hitched, perhaps for a repeat wedding, BREWSTER expects the window to be a hit.
"It's hilarious. It's going to be a novelty," she said. "I get a lot of couples that want to do it quick and not spend a lot of money, and why not do it and have fun? I have stress-free weddings."

BERNARDO m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-03-12 published
Megan BERNARDO and Ryan MICHALSKI -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, March 12, 2005 Page M6
If you love something, you can set it free, but it may need a nudge in the appropriate direction. At least that's what Megan BERNARDO reasoned as she "pushed, more than encouraged," a reluctant Ryan MICHALSKI to follow his dream and move to England to play basketball.
The 6-foot-4 athlete, whom she had been dating for five years, had recently obtained his Chartered Accountant designation and a position with Deloitte and Touche LLP. But this bean counter wasn't keen on being tied to a desk. He had been thinking about trying out for a spot on the Northampton Neptunes, ever since Friends from his days at Mount Allison University had ended up on the team and encouraged him to join them. "It was always in the back of my mind," Mr. MICHALSKI, now 26, says, "and Megan said, 'If you don't go, you'll regret it.' "
"I was worried if he didn't go, he'd regret me," Ms. BERNARDO laughs.
His employers were supportive as well, he says, guaranteeing his position for a year, so Mr. MICHALSKI decided to make the move in August of 2003.
He wasn't exactly a stranger in a strange land. "My mother's parents, five of her brothers and sisters and a whack of cousins lived within a hundred miles, and when you come from Canada, a two-hour drive isn't far."
Living and working with his former university teammates helped him feel at home too.
The biggest challenge was being away from Ms. BERNARDO, whom he had met in 1998, when they were both third-year students at Mount Allison, in Sackville, N.B.
"We did stats homework together and became Friends," says Mr. MICHALSKI, who is originally from Saint John's.
The summer after they met, he lined up what he thought was a solid job offer in Toronto, where Ms. BERNARDO lived, and called her.
"My parents always welcomed everyone into our house," Ms. BERNARDO says. "So when they heard Ryan's dad and friend Dave were here, they said, 'Bring everyone.' "
When the families were chatting, they realized that Mr. MICHALSKI's father, a professor at Memorial University in Newfoundland, knew a close family friend, Judy ROBERTS, from when she was a PhD candidate at Memorial. Both families felt an instant rapport.
The connection even led to an offer of employment for Mr. MICHALSKI, who had just learned that his original job offer had fallen through. Hearing the news, Ms. BERNARDO's parents immediately offered him summer employment at Camp Wabikon, a former Hudson's Bay post near Temagami, which they owned and operated.
That fall, the couple started dating, and by graduation in 2000, they were viewing each other in a starry new light as they toured Europe for a month. Ms. BERNARDO decided to return there after the two came back to Canada, to study Italian and formulate her future. "It was hard because Ry had just moved to Toronto and I was going away. But he was very supportive," she says.
While Mr. MICHALSKI completed his 30 months of accountancy requirements, Ms. BERNARDO searched for her niche. After travelling in Europe, she had returned to Toronto, completed the Canadian Securities Course and found work in the investment field. But she wasn't satisfied with her career decisions. "I was miserable in the city being away from what I loved, and midsummer decided I was on the wrong track. I realized that what I had been trying to get away from was what I loved and wanted to do forever."
Happily, in 2003, she joined her siblings on Wabikon's staff as an assistant director. "It's a family affair," she beams.
Meanwhile, Mr. MICHALSKI was preparing to leave the country. He had the ring and envisioned proposing at Christmas, when Ms. BERNARDO planned to visit him. But when she dashed back to the city to bid farewell two days before his departure, the catalyst of nerves and ardour spurred him to immediacy. He missed his opportunity during a romantic dinner when a group in banker's blue noisily invaded the restaurant they had chosen. He skillfully rebounded, however, and proposed later at home. After her slam-dunk response, they bounded off to his scheduled touch-football game.
Just engaged, they were soon an ocean apart. "It was tough being without Megan," he says. "She came over for a month at Christmas, and I surprised her in April."
After that brief visit, he returned to England and stayed three months longer, coaching in primary schools, a job made easier after he had interacted with campers at Wabikon. And by fall, as their wedding approached, he was back here for good, working once again as a Chartered Accountant.
On October 22, Reverend Deborah HART led the ceremony in Eglinton St. George's United Church. The processional and recessional were two versions of the Trumpet Voluntary, played by internist and family friend Lynn SARGEANT, who had performed the identical repertoire at the wedding of the bride's parents in 1969.
"As soon as it started, all of my emotions came up," says the bride, 27. Among her seven bridesmaids were five housemates from university. "It was the first time we had all been together since graduation, and I needed them with me," the new Mrs. MICHALSKI emotes, adding, "Our Friendship came before Ry and I were ever a couple."
Still, she says, nothing can match the bond she has with her husband. "We have the same Friends, are accepting of each other's lives and dreams and make each other laugh, which keeps us sane."

Sherri Elizabeth BURCH and Lee John BONNELL -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
Seated beside a platonic lady friend on a flight to Mexico in February, 2005, Lee BONNELL focused on a beguiling Sherri BURCH, sitting nearby, "talking up a storm" with her girlfriend.
"Lee's radar was always on the alert for the damsel of his dreams. I knew he was on a mission after checking out Sherri on the plane," the friend recounts.
After they settled into their Huatulco resort, she continues, "he sprang into action, helping himself to a seat at her breakfast table," and hovering around her at the pool. "His persistence drew curious reactions from guests who had seen Lee and me together. They were scouting for scandal," she surmises.
Soon, the twosomes became a foursome, as they took in tourist events, discovered a mutual Friendship and expounded on life. "We had a great time. It was open and relaxed, and we talked about everything," Mr. BONNELL enthuses. Upon their departure, a week later, he and Ms. BURCH glowed, moonstruck, their approaches to life seemingly a tailored fit. Each owned a century home, hers in Fergus, his in West Toronto, and they shared a love of antiques, tennis and dogs. Ms. BURCH, however, was still "cautiously optimistic. There was obviously an attraction, but when you get home, it's different," she explains.
The next weekend, however, when Mr. BONNELL drove to Fergus to cook dinner for his new friend, he was certain, the moment he saw her, that his ardour hadn't paled. "The resort thing was the real deal. I just looked at Sherri and knew it was still there.
"I was going to impress her by cooking lamb, but I burnt it silly," laughs the account manager at M-qube, who, along with his culinary aspirations, has a master's of engineering and an M.B.A. from the University of Toronto.
Ms. BURCH, 36, a University of Guelph graduate and owner of Sage Benefit Solutions, fared better with her cheesecake, until half of it disappeared. The "usual suspects" included his dog, her two dogs, a drop-in dog and three cats. The comic aspects of the dinner notwithstanding, love flourished.
"Lee is the kindest person I know. When we were first together, I had the red-pencil mentality, looking for something to be wrong. There was no way he could be this fantastic," Ms. BURCH recalls.
Over the following several months, it became obvious the couple's next trip would be down the aisle. Late summer, they visited his family in Edmonton, and on September 1, 2005, after a perfunctory gondola ride up Sulphur Mountain, they tore off to Canmore, where they swooped, by helicopter, into backcountry -- along with a guide. Midway through a three-hour trek, they paused for a gourmet lunch, and on cue the guide took a hike on his own. Then Mr. BONNELL, now 44, produced a Tiffany box he had stashed with his extra socks. "Sherri said yes, we toasted and kissed."
Their search for a century home mutually convenient to their work seemed to be over when they found a Georgetown classic. Other bidders jumped into the pool, but by midnight they were the only ones still afloat. His home sold in a week, hers in a day, and despite a drunk driver crashing into the side of Ms. BURCH's place before closing, everything turned out well.
Almost a year to the day they met, on the evening of February 25, 2006, in the candlelit music room of Hart House at the University of Toronto, Ms. BURCH's young nieces, Hanna and Claire WILES, walked her down the aisle; Mr. BONNELL's nieces, Rhiannon and Kristjaan BONNELL- DAVIES, played Pachelbel's Canon in D on violins as the register was signed before officiant Lawrence BERNSTEIN. A string trio took over as 105 guests mingled at a cocktail reception in the Gallery Grill.
Mrs. BONNELL, who is on the board of directors of Groves Memorial Community Hospital Foundation in Fergus and also sits on the board of an agency dealing with street youth in Kitchener, reflects, "I always say I lead a blessed life -- especially having met Lee, who loves and cares for me."

Danielle Martin BERRY and John Douglas HARRISON -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M4
The Fox Goes Free pub in Pickering inadvertently lived up to its billing as a great place to meet when John HARRISON, a student working for the summer as a bartender, observed Danielle BERRY, a fellow student-cum-waitress, and did a double take. "I recognized her from the University of Toronto, but we had never had a chance to meet. I was immediately and totally enamoured with her," he recalls.
At the time, both were students in the faculty of music. Ms. BERRY, in the education program, concentrated on piano and won the Lloyd Bradshaw Prize in choral conducting, while Mr. HARRISON, in performance, specialized in clarinet, earning scholarships in the Opera Orchestra. "It's a very small faculty and strange we didn't cross paths," she says.
Back in the classroom, the symphonic Friendship that was initiated at work soon had the ivories and woodwind in perfect harmony. "We hit it off right away, became romantically involved because we were such a good match and have been inseparable since 1996," Ms. BERRY, 31, says.
On graduation, the couple's careers would digress. The prospect of a plethora of lengthy auditions preceding any performance contract disillusioned Mr. HARRISON and when a friend suggested he cast his lot with ING Bank, a financial institution launching in Canada, he changed direction and never looked back. Naysayers may refute music as a basis for world finance, but Mr. HARRISON counters, "In music, creative and logical thinking are important, and music has prepared me very well for what I am doing now."
Meanwhile, true to her discipline, Ms. BERRY continued on to the Glenn Gould School, earning various scholarships before beginning to teach piano and musicianship in association with the Yamaha Music School, while finding time to volunteer for the lunch ministry at the St. Felix Centre. She acknowledges family influence, but attributes her performance success to Mr. HARRISON, 33. "He felt I had it in me, and encouraged me in a way that I hadn't encountered before. I don't think I would have taken that step if I hadn't known John," she says.
Happily, the pair relish joint musical and artistic interests while savouring Toronto's diverse dining scene, but frequently find respite from the frenetic urban landscape by embracing the outdoors at his fourth-generation family property near Minden.
When he was dispatched to the United Kingdom in October, 2002, to assist in ING's start-up, Ms. BERRY joined him after honouring her teaching commitments up to June, 2003.
"I knew that I would have a life with John when we were together," she affirms, since "we had the confidence to be apart."
Their two years in London were magical as they drank in the world-class cultural scene and jaunted to the continent. A highlight was their venture to the original 17th-century Fox Goes Free pub, "which has special meaning for us," she says.
Just before their July, 2005, return to Toronto, she had begun to ruminate on what seemed like a delinquent proposal, but on a March mini-excursion to Greece the answer to her anxiety was tucked away in Mr. HARRISON's camera tote. As the sun set on Santorini, the volcano slept, and the ocean glistened like their future and the ring on her finger.
On May 6 at the Ontario Heritage Centre, a classical guitarist performed as the couple recited vows before officiant Antoine AOUAD. A meet, mix and dance cocktail reception followed.
"It seemed natural we would always be together," reflects Mrs. BERRY HARRISON, who advises others in long-term relationships: "Be oblivious to outside pressure, know what your timing is, and what you are comfortable doing."

Amy OICLES and Ronald GOSLING -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, February 5, 2005 - Page M6
When planning a wedding, some couples want frothy and romantic. Others go for the ultimate in elegance, fun or fantasy. Ronald James GOSLING and Amy Lynn OICLES sought a singular event that reflected their adventuresome, roving spirits.
After all, Mr. GOSLING, a Toronto musician, had spent months over the years touring the United States with his band, Weirdstone, and as a solo artist. Ms. OICLES, meanwhile, ventured farther afield, making forays from her native San Francisco to Alaska, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal and Thailand, where she taught English.
So theirs was a marriage on the move -- on a tour bus.
"Everyone has a different idea about what is romantic, but we wanted the unusual," Mr. GOSLING says.
"Ron wanted to get married in motion because we both wandered around so much," Ms. OICLES, 34, adds, "and we have this dream of crossing the U.S. in a Winnebago."
On the afternoon of January 23, a 40-foot luxury Canada Coach pulled up to their apartment in the Bathurst and St. Clair neighbourhood. Early arrivals decorated the chapel on wheels, cramming in food, drink, the cake and a slew of musical instruments.
The bride and groom, outfitted respectively in traditional white and a $28 thrift-store suit, boarded the bus, which then navigated snowy Toronto streets to collect Friends and family from homes and hotels.
"I was nervous for a fair chunk of it," Mr. GOSLING, 37, says. "I'd never been married before, and the storage bins hit my head, but the danger just amplified the wedding."
With officiant Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON balancing the bumps and curves, the "I do's" took place somewhere between Main and Danforth, and Greenwood and Gerrard. Passengers defied double-digit negative temperatures to tour key Toronto attractions -- the Distillery District, Royal Ontario Museum and the C.N. Tower -- as onlookers rubbernecked the wedding assemblage. At Harbourfront, the celebrants feted the coincidental birthday of the bridegroom's father with sparklers. Aboard the bus, seven guitarists and a toy keyboard that sounded like a cathedral organ heightened the festivities.
Six hours later, the tour ended at the couple's apartment, where Mr. GOSLING's friend Howard BERTOLO tickled the ivories into the night.
The hardy entourage braved a blizzard the next afternoon to hit the dance floor at the Chick'n'deli, where the groom's father, jazz trombonist Len GOSLING, wound up the group with his iconic Climax Jazz Band, a fixture there since it opened in 1983.
The wedding's rolling venue was particularly appropriate since Ms. OICLES actually worked as a tour-bus driver in San Francisco in 1996 during one of her returns from her international wanderings. "I love driving people around," she says. "But there was a lot of pressure. If anything goes wrong, it is always the driver's fault."
For seven years, she indulged her nomadic urge after graduating in 1993 from the University of California in Santa Barbara.
She hung up her backpack to study psychology at San Francisco State University, and by 2003 she was working in the public-school system while also tutoring a student with Asperger's syndrome.
It was during this sojourn home that she met Mr. GOSLING on April Fool's Day, 2003, in a bar in Fairfax, California, where he was playing guitar.
"She struck me as terrific," he says, "and we made a date for the next day."
Several months of sun, surf and sparks made the two a pair. "Ron is incredibly funny. His music, sense of adventure and high level of honesty make him unusual," she says.
Mr. GOSLING plaintively admitted being homesick and missing snow, however, just when she was ready for the road again. "I was itching to get out of the Bay Area," Ms. OICLES says. "It had become expensive and everyone was working with no time to relax."
With a stop at the Grand Canyon, the duo drove across the country, pulling into Toronto in August.
Mr. GOSLING, who frequently took on work as a house painter ("for the bread part"), is now the superintendent in the couple's upscale apartment building. When not nursing its cranky boiler, he practises: guitar, piano and trumpet. "I'm kind of a Jack of many [instruments], but the bass is my forte. I play on demos or do a gig if someone needs a sub. I just love music."
Despite the new responsibilities, the couple's travels continue, as they cross the border every few months to make sure Ms. OICLES stays on the right side of Canada's immigration laws.
"We go for weekends in Buffalo and Niagara Falls," Ms. GOSLING says. "It is really ridiculous, but we do what we can to stay legal."

Will you Mayor-y me?
London's Anne Marie DECICCO and Tim BEST are planning to wed after a whirlwind romance.
By MARY- JANE EGAN, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., November 3, 2005
Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO cuddles with fiance Tim BEST, a London native now living in Dallas, Texas, yesterday after the couple announced plans to marry next year. BEST proposed Sunday during dinner in Port Stanley. (Morris LAMONT, The London Free Press)
London Mayor Anne Marie DECICCO dropped a bombshell -- but this one was purely personal -- at city hall yesterday: She's getting married.
Dressed in a red suit and flashing a glittering diamond and a broad smile, the 40-year-old, never-wed, two-term mayor invited reporters into her office to meet the man she plans to marry next year.
"We do have a date but we're finalizing it, so I don't want to jinx too much of that right now," DECICCO said as well-wishers arrived with congratulatory hugs and to view the diamond.
Tim BEST, 44, a London native now living in Dallas, Texas, and the owner of two Texas Junior B hockey teams, met DECICCO May 22 at a Memorial Cup hockey game at the John Labatt Centre.
The whirlwind romance that ensued -- kept carefully under wraps -- culminated Sunday when BEST proposed during a romantic fireside dinner at Port Stanley's Kettle Creek Inn.
Port Stanley was chosen for "sentimental reasons," DECICCO said, noting one of their first dates was a walk along the Lake Erie beach.
"Yes, he got down on one knee," DECICCO confirmed, prompting BEST to quip: "I slipped."
BEST, who plans to return to London in April after hockey season wraps up for his teams the Dallas Titans and Fort Worth Texans, said he will maintain ownership of the teams.
BEST said he will give up his role as general manager of Hockey Group LP to his coaches.
The two teams are ranked third and 19th in the U.S.
"I'll take a trip down (to Texas) once a month for a couple of days but as president of a company like that, it's very easy to monitor from up here," BEST said.
After the wedding, they plan to live in the London house DECICCO bought a year ago.
DECICCO, who plans to seek a third term as mayor next year, has already recruited BEST to co-chair one of her campaign teams.
"I feel like I've been blessed in so many ways in my life with a great family and great Friends and this is just an amazing job. But this completes my circle in a lot of ways," DECICCO said of the engagement.
"We definitely want to have a family and I'm really looking forward to that, but we've also talked about running (for election) again and Tim's 110 per cent behind that."
BEST and DECICCO went to the same high school, but he didn't know her then. He was in Grade 13 at Catholic Central high school when she was in Grade 9 there. He went to school with her brother, Dom, while DECICCO shared classes with BEST's sister.
It was after a Memorial Cup game BEST approached DECICCO for directions to an automated teller machine.
"I knew Anne Marie was the mayor, but it was dark and I didn't recognize her and she had all her (London) Knights stuff on and she was wearing this big badge, so I honestly thought she was working at the game," said BEST. " She gave me directions and, later, we were introduced in the Molson tent."
DECICCO has dated off and on, but said her last serious relationship was when she was in her 20s. She kept her relationship with BEST quiet until "I knew he was the right guy."
Since they met, he's made several trips to London and she, too, to Dallas.
BEST let slip they took a vacation together, but DECICCO made it clear that topic was off limits.
"I've always been really serious when it comes to relationships and, obviously, I have a very responsible job and you want to be sure that when someone becomes a part of your life that they understand it fully and this job is important not just for me but for the community," DECICCO said.
Early in their relationship, DECICCO said the couple began talking about the future.
"We have the same values and the same morals and we're both Catholic and there are a lot of things that bind us together and he really understands my job and he knows it's not 9 to 5 and he's going to be eating dinner by himself once in a while. But he doesn't have a traditional job, either, so we understand each other and are supportive -- and you know I'm a huge hockey fan."
BEST was married in 1982 at 21, a relationship that lasted only a year and a half and produced a son, Ryan, 22, who will be his father's best man.
Ryan coaches one of his dad's teams and DECICCO describes him as "just terrific -- he's my buddy."
BEST, who visited DECICCO's parents, Frank and Bettina, the night before he proposed to ask Frank for his daughter's hand, said both families have become close.
"I told her dad this can't happen without your blessing and he said he saw a lot of the same things in me as himself and he lived his life for Anne Marie and he could see I would do the same," said BEST.
"Our families are really emotional," DECICCO said. "Everyone's been crying at various times, my staff, my Friends, my family."
DECICCO, only the second London mayor in recent memory to wed in office -- Deputy Mayor Tom GOSNELL was the first -- said she believes marriage will make her happier and enhance her role as mayor.
"I think just about every other mayor that's been doing this job has been married, so it's not like I'm breaking new ground here.
"I spend a lot of time at events and now Tim will be there and that will be an enhancement to the things I do. This job has been the best experience I've ever had, but like everyone else, there are days when you just need someone to be there for you and I've seen that in the months we've been together and it's just going to be a bonus when he's actually living here and we're married."
BEST's parents are lifelong Londoners. His father, Ted, retired after 30 years as a blacksmith at GM Diesel and his mother, Carolyn, is a retired porter from London Health Sciences Centre. They own a four-hectare hobby farm on Dundas Street East.

Mayor a Mrs. today
By Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporter, Sat., June 17, 2006
When London's mayor ties the knot today, she'll be making history.
Among the three female mayors the city has had, Anne Marie DECICCO is the only one to get married while in office.
The only other sitting London mayor to get hitched was Tom GOSNELL, whose wedding in 1986 to Laurel STROPLE was kept under wraps until the day after it happened.
"Mayor managed to keep lid on wedding until it was over" and "GOSNELL wed in secret" screamed the headlines in the April 19, 1986, edition of The London Free Press.
There was no keeping a lid on this party, though.
Yesterday, while DECICCO, her bridesmaids and fiance Tim BEST were busy setting up a banquet hall at the Marconi Club for today's post-nuptial reception, city hall staff were buzzing with anticipation.
"It's like the Queen getting married. (DECICCO) is the No. 1 person in the city," said Vilia ZOCCANO, who has worked at city hall since 1972.
ZOCCANO remembers GOSNELL's wedding, which she -- with everyone else -- found out about at the last minute when she was asked to put out a statement about it.
"He was a different personality than Anne Marie. He wanted to keep it private," said ZOCCANO, who will be attending the reception.
Yesterday, DECICCO was putting the finishing touches on the big day and getting congratulations from every angle.
She picked up her wedding dress -- traditional white -- and was driving home when two women began gesturing wildly in the car beside her.
Rolling down her window, DECICCO said she heard: "You're the mayor. That's your dress! Congratulations."
At the Marconi Club, she and three of her bridesmaids were setting up centrepieces and joking around with BEST.
"He appreciates Italian," DECICCO joked.
"What can I say -- good company, good food, good soccer," BEST replied.
"I'm hoping to get the pictures done in 20 minutes so we can get here to watch the soccer game," he added, referring to the World Cup soccer game between Italy and the United States that will be going on today while the bridal party is getting wedding photos done.
"I think at some point (on Saturday) it will hit me. Right now, I'm just planning. It's another day," DECICCO said yesterday.
