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.

50th Wedding Anniversary
By Bob STEEL, Page 16
June 4, 2005, Saturday, was an eventful day for Mr. and Mrs. C and C CATCHER, the day chosen for a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Christopher Robert CATCHER and Sara Clazien (LEKX) wedding in Trinity Anglican Church, Durham by the Rev. Reginald JACKSON. The matron of honour was Mrs. Patricia JAMES (Christopher's oldest sister) and the best man was David CATCHER (the brother of Chris.) The reception was at the LEKX family farm near Durham. The actual wedding was March 5, 1955.
At their home located on the corner of the Old Durham Road and Grey Road 14, the celebration ran from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with up to 180 people attending.
Part of the day was a renewal of the wedding vows conducted by the Rev. Anne MILLS, very recently the minister for Christ Church Markdale (Anglican). All present took part in the ceremony. Clazien's brother, William (the LEKX family Is from Holland) sang a solo and the LEKX family sang the hymns.
For their honeymoon, Chris and Clazien drove to French River to stay on a farm of Christopher's parents where he built his first house and became a farmer.
One day on the way to Sudbury their first child was born in the car! They stopped at Burwash to get a doctor. This was the evening of December 22, 1955. The baby was Isobel Patricia.
In the fall of 1956 they came back to the Durham/Priceville area. Chris sold for Watkins Products patent medicines, animal minerals, etc.
Their home was the current one which Chris purchased in 1960. Children were Isobel, Tonia, Mary and Thomas. Christopher John was the fifth in 1962. The family have lived there for 45 years come this August.
They have always been churchgoers. At the present time they attend Christ Church Markdale, Anglican. Both have helped in the church. Clazien is president of the Anglican Church Women. Soon their garden flowers are provided for the altar. Chris is a volunteer at Rockwood Terrace, a seniors' home in Durham. Both Clazien and Chris work in their garden and around the house.
On June 5, the weather was sunny and warm. First visitors were Doctor and Mrs. CHAN at 9 a.m. From 10 a.m. it was visitors.
Chris has worn the Scottish kilt and sporran so his piper Friends came and played the pipes from 11 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m. Kaelen MacNEILL, the 14-year old Highland dancer (who lives next door) performed for about one hour and then helped the CATCHERs. She goes to Grey Highlands High School. There was a large tent for food and shelter. There were flowers and guests everywhere. The food was delicious.
There were innumerable automobiles. Visitors came locally and from Milton, Orangeville, Fergus, Stratford, Guelph, Paisley, Wiarton, Owen Sound, London, Gananoque, Kanata, Toronto and Richmond Hill. There were four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
The CATCHERs thank everyone who attended and made the event a lovely, unforgettable event.

Brigitte GOULET and Gabriel CHAN -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, July 16, 2005, Page M6
Surgical resident Gabriel CHAN still ponders whether it was the purported mystical and aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate or his magnetic charm that made Dr. Brigitte GOULET succumb. The couple had met while working in adjacent laboratories at McGill University in 2002.
Her initial impression of him was of a boisterous doctor suffering from "cellphone-itis."
"The first time I saw him if you had told me that I was going to marry him, I would have laughed at you," she says, having then just ended a relationship and of the opinion that all men were fickle Casanovas.
During their routine repartees, chemistry began to bubble up outside the lab, and that October before setting off to rock-climb in Les Calanques, near the southern French city of Cassis, Dr. CHAN asked if he could bring her anything.
Dr. GOULET had literally lived around the world in Seattle, Washington France; Chile; Gabon; and the Ivory Coast, and offhandedly mentioned Mi-cho-ko, a French chocolate candy she was mad about, but hardly expected to see.
Yet, true to his word he recalls his mission with a laugh, "I carted these bonbons up the side of a cliff, carried them around five days and brought them back." His sincerity and generosity reaped the reward of casual dinner dates and piqued Dr. GOULET's interest.
Early in their dating at a friend's dinner party, Dr. GOULET fell ill. Dr. CHAN quickly ushered her home and diagnosed the flu. He drew on his medical expertise and recommended chicken soup or hot honey lemon tea. Then, after brewing the tea, he lingered until 3: 30 a.m.
The possibility of infection yielded to infatuation when he kissed her with abandon, declaring, "I won't get sick," which he didn't. Smitten, he adds, "She has an innocence, is full of life, friendly and an optimist with a hop in her step. I fell in love after about the 10th time I saw her."
In December, she jetted off to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to spend Christmas with her parents, promising to write. At the time, her father, Roland GOULET, was Canadian ambassador there.
When the anticipated mail failed to arrive, Dr. CHAN reveals, "I was expectant, waiting, disappointed, but understood that a postcard from Africa could take quite a while."
However, when she hand-delivered it on her return, explaining there was no mail service in Congo, his flame was fanned.
Early in the summer of 2004, his plan to propose at Niagara-on-the-Lake vaporized when he forgot the ring at his parents' home in Toronto. His next effort on an August weekend antiquing in Quebec's Eastern Townships almost veered into Neverland. "I had had a very bad week, and when we arrived, he hadn't reserved anything and I wasn't the most happy camper," Dr. GOULET says.
A desperate call was made to Francine GOULET, and things brightened when she suggested a ski resort in Sutton with ample rooms. Ironically, fate had the misguided adventurers take a wrong turn and land in Orford, where the frustrated and exhausted pair snared a room, thanks to a last-minute cancellation.
The next morning, Dr. CHAN arranged a massage and brunch for his sweetheart, hoping to heal her fractured mood. When she returned rejuvenated, and much like her upbeat self, "I asked if she was still grumpy, she said, 'No' and I proposed, she accepted and cried," he chuckles of their special moment that played like a non-event.
Dr. CHAN, 31, with a M. Sc. in biochemistry from McGill, and an M.D. from the University of Western Ontario, is now in residency at McGill. He is replicating the surgical odyssey of his father, who now practises at Thornhill's Shouldice Hernia Centre.
He and Dr. GOULET, who has a Ph. D. in biochemistry and is now a research associate in McGill's Molecular Oncology Group, enjoy the social and culinary experience of Montreal's bistros, but their other interests are more disparate. She dislikes hockey, and he loves playing.
"We're more complementary than similar. I would rock-climb; she would read. She goes out with girlfriends; I spend time with Friends from medicine," notes Dr. CHAN.
"I'm like a wildcat he domesticated by slowly gaining my confidence. I'm more extravagant and panic at little things. He's very calm, makes me laugh and I come back to earth," says Dr. GOULET, 32.
On May 22, the holiday weekend enabled guests to travel from Montreal to Toronto, where at Spring Garden Baptist Church in North York the couple were wed by Pastor Rick WUKASCH. Photos on the picturesque grounds of the Shouldice Centre were followed by a reception at Deluxe Chinese Cuisine, where 230 guests observed a traditional tea ceremony preceding dinner.
"When you are not looking, [love] comes like a hair on the soup. Bloop, and there was this one, [Gabriel] and he was different," Ms. GOULET says.

Cathy CHATTERTON and Jeff THURSTON -- Match
By Judith Tenebaum, Saturday, May 14, 2005, Page M6
It was only natural for wedding photographer Cathy Elizabeth CHATTERTON to wonder how and when her own turn at the altar would come, and with whom. The "whom" issue was addressed when she met Jeff Brian THURSTON. The other questions would prove problematic.
"I wanted a distinct memory," Ms. CHATTERTON says. "I didn't want to end up in a place where I had worked."
The respective wishes of each family raised further concerns. Hers wanted an intimate affair, but his huge contingent required a large soirée. Thus, rife with wedding input from outsiders, the two balked. "There was a bit of tension," Mr. THURSTON says, "and it became clear that we weren't going to make it work for everybody."
So the couple decided to do it their way. They picked a venue and date that reflected their fun-loving personalities: Las Vegas, April 1, 2005. Both the time and place had special meaning for the couple; that they were to be married on April Fool's Day would become even more significant as the day approached. They met on April 1, 2000, at a Toronto party Ms. CHATTERTON attended with a girlfriend. "Jeff was 19, and I was 22. I laughed at him because he was a teenager," she says. But a mutual attraction was undeniable. "He was fun, and in a Hawaiian shirt. I really liked him because he was a smiley guy, and it's hard to find smiley guys."
The next day, Mr. THURSTON went out with the two women and another partygoer. "We talked," he says, "but I didn't know if Cathy liked me because of the age difference." Happily, when the hand-holding began, he realized Ms. CHATTERTON was his date.
After their first solo outing a week later, she raved about his jollity and dance moves, while adding a year to Mr. THURSTON's age in a phone call to her mother, who generally believed that mature men were better candidates for her daughter.
The generosity he later demonstrated toward Ms. CHATTERTON, who had completed Sheridan College's photography program in 1999, probably helped endear him even further. By Christmas, 2001, he had graduated from R.C.C. College of Technology and secured his first full-time job, at satellite-communications company Telesat in Allenford, Ontario Despite working to repay a student debt and having only a pittance for groceries, he scraped together enough money to buy Ms. CHATTERTON a prohibitively expensive camera, which enabled her to launch her own photography business in Toronto.
"We never talked about marriage," he says, "but it [the gift] was like a commitment."
The camera "was a ring for me," she notes, remembering the tears that welled uncontrollably at the time. Her gift to him was a lock of hair for the partner she wanted to dance with forever. "We jived and boogied on our first date, are silly together and not afraid to be goofy," she says, beaming.
Ms. CHATTERTON's parents -- who live near Allenford, south of Owen Sound -- ended up falling for Mr. THURSTON just as their daughter had. He lived with them, in their daughter's old "flowery, girly bedroom," during an interminable, 3½-year wait to be transferred to Toronto to join Ms. CHATTERTON.
The couple's romance was characterized by blissful weekends in the city and baleful weekdays apart. Every Friday, Mr. THURSTON barrelled 2½ hours down to Toronto for the weekend, where the two would stroll and rollerblade and take in festivals and other free events -- the only recreational activities available to them on the tight budgets their fledgling careers afforded.
Occasionally, when he wasn't studying part-time for his B.A. from Memorial University of Newfoundland by correspondence, he would assist at wedding shoots, and the pair would become caught up in romance. "It was almost like a Saturday-night date," she says. "We'd give each other little winks, and when someone said something sweet, we'd squeeze hands."
Their first extended trip together was a spring fling to Las Vegas, where on April Fool's Day, 2004, before the dancing fountains at the Bellagio, Mr. THURSTON started to propose just as a loud rendition of Sinatra's Fly Me to the Moon began playing. Unable to hear a response, he remained uncertain about the outcome until Ms. CHATTERTON urged, "Aren't you going to put it on me?"
April Fool's Day a year later was their planned wedding day, but the joke was almost on them. An open invitation had 36 guests keen to attend, although they wondered whether the Las Vegas nuptials would be a drive-through affair. Mr. THURSTON lined up the guests' flights and hotel rooms and a reception with his credit card, but when Jetsgo filed for receivership on March 11, the couple's plans melted down. Ever the optimist, he scrambled to find a new airline, and did. On the plane, attendees received envelopes with Las Vegas trivia and a quiz revealing the ceremony's location.
At sunset, at the Chapel in the Clouds, a venue at the top of the 1,149-foot-tall Stratosphere Tower, the couple were wed by a justice of the peace. An Elvis impersonator performed at the reception following, and the celebrants toasted with champagne at the same fountain where Mr. THURSTON had proposed, before all danced the night away.
The newly transferred Mr. THURSTON, 24, and Mrs. THURSTON, 27, have now purchased an Etobicoke home. "We are used to saving," she says with a laugh, "so we're used to having no money."

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.

CHIRE m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-04-01 published
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."

CHO m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-07-08 published
Christine CHO and Jamie PARK -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M4
For Christine CHO and Jamie PARK a platonic test cruise soon had their transmissions in overdrive.
They met at church, where she played softball on a co-ed team that he coached. Eventually they became part of a group that explored the Toronto scene.
On Valentine's Day, 2002, their paradigm tilted. "About four of us were all single at the time and decided that we'd hang out, have a nice dinner and enjoy each other's company," recalls Ms. CHO.
The following day when the pair, who rarely chatted on MSN, connected, she confessed that as a girlfriend she would be difficult -- high maintenance, and with lofty expectations. Risking a wounded ego but looking for validation, Mr. PARK suggested a week-long experiment, in which he "would play her boyfriend."
Despite misgivings about spoiling a great Friendship, Ms. CHO agreed: "Both mature adults, we'd test the waters and wouldn't tell any of our Friends. Because if we broke up they might feel awkward having to choose sides."
Early that summer, Mr. PARK recalls, "I meant to say I like you," but instead his heart spoke, "I love you." Two weeks of torment ensued as Ms. CHO pondered her response. "I didn't want to say it unless I really meant it," she explains, adding, "Jamie was extremely patient, understanding and concerned with my being happy."
Born in Etobicoke, Ms. CHO, who is a prodigious violinist with virtuoso potential, exhibits many exceptional attributes. She was Canada's representative in the Miss World competition in 2000, and as the first woman of Asian descent to win the Miss Canada International title in 2001 she was feted here and in Korea.
After an honours B.A. in English from the University of Toronto, she considered a masters degree, but pursued a certificate to teach English as a second language instead. "Teaching new adult immigrants made me more appreciative of being Canadian and the immigrant struggle."
Meanwhile, when her mother began O'Happy Day Daycare, Ms. CHO again switched direction and became its administrator. Accustomed to rendering support to family enterprises, she observes: "You plan your future, but you have to be flexible."
A financial planner at Scotia McLeod, born in Korea and with a Bachelor degree in Science from York University, Mr. PARK, 35, says, "I knew Christine before and after she ran for the pageants. It was an accomplishment for her, her family and the Korean community, but never a deciding issue as to why I was attracted to her." Their philosophical interconnectedness includes respect for their Korean heritage, faith as their bedrock and volunteering at Mil Al Church and the Woodgreen Red Door Shelter.
Playing on her empathy for the underdog, Mr. PARK concocted a tale about sharing a lonely friend's birthday, luring Ms. CHO to a table set for four at the Fairmont Royal York's Epic restaurant on June 10, 2005. Asked to critique the spelling on the birthday card, which included the question "Will you marry me!," she noted he'd used an exclamation mark in lieu of a question mark -- and then accepted the proposal.
On May 20 at Garden Korean Church, personal vows were exchanged before Rev. Danny CHUNG. "It was a good exercise to think about why you are marrying and what you promise. It wasn't just to ourselves but to God, as well," says the bride, 27, who designed her ivory lace gown and the yellow silk charmeuse bridesmaids dresses.
After a luncheon at the Mandarin restaurant, dinner at Kleinberg's Copper Creek Golf Club was revved up by the Lady Kane band and surprise pyrotechnics. "Initially, we both thought that it wouldn't work. But when a relationship is meant to be, a lot of things just fall into the right place," says Mr. PARK.
