Irene MONIZ and Liz COATES -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, July 2, 2005, Page M4
Playing Friday evening broomball on opposite teams 13 years ago, their glances were tentative, and neither Liz COATES nor Irene MONIZ ventured a smile. But they were both instantly attracted to "something in the eyes, a sparkle," recalls Ms. MONIZ.
They'd chatted with Friends over drinks after games, usually about their shared love of nature, and within a month they were dating.
"It got pathetic, to the point that we were on the phone late into the night," says Ms. MONIZ, who six months later affectionately welcomed Ms. COATES into her home in Brampton and into her life -- which included her eight-year-old twin boys, Brandon and Christian.
"The transition was so easy that no one was aware that there was a transition," she says. "The boys regarded Liz with as much affection as me. It was a matter of whose lap they'd sit on watching television, or reading a book."
Ms. COATES got Brandon into hockey, both boys into baseball, and with their mother, encouraged them to play soccer and enjoy camping. Soon, their father, whom the boys visited frequently, also fondly accepted Ms. COATES.
"Everything she does she puts her whole being into," Ms. MONIZ, 44, says of her partner of over a decade. "So many people, all different kinds, care for her. Her personality overwhelmed me."
The couple with a fondness for the outdoors also had dreams of owning property in the country. So eight years ago, they "cornered off a little piece of the world where we can hang out," 45 acres atop the Beaver Valley in Collingwood, Ontario "We've taken in backhoes and bobcats, and tailored it to be this fabulous place," enthuses Ms. MONIZ, a construction company manager. "We have trails, trout ponds, gigantic raised gardens, and go up through the winter."
"We spend most of our time and energy there. People know they can drop in any time and are always welcome. Irene is a great cook," beams Ms. COATES, 41, a pre-press manager.
As parents, they'd survived the usual battery of worries raising two young children, as well as some not-so-usual ones. Regularly, large groups of neighbourhood children congregated at the couple's home. "Most of the time there never was a problem," Ms. MONIZ says. But "when the word got out our family was a little different, the boys were picked on and teased."
She was summoned to meet with a school panel: psychologists, teachers, the guidance counsellor and the principal.
"People fear what they don't know. Even though our families are just the same as theirs, most people haven't had a chance to find that out." The school had wanted to punish the offenders, but a conciliatory Ms. MONIZ suggested a more subtle approach. She volunteered for school trips, where she "had the young [rascals] in my group, and ironed it out right away."
Despite vestiges of societal sanctimony, she is a veteran volunteer for the March of Dimes and Co-op Education in Peel. "We do little private things here and there. Just a home-cooked meal, a little note on a voice mail," she adds, convinced that kindness is the greatest gift anyone can bestow.
Brandon and Christian's teenage years proved to be a pivotal point for their mother and her partner as well. "It was a struggle," Ms. COATES recalls. "We were interested in having a solid relationship and felt anything can be worked through. Irene is the only person that I've ever met that when we have an argument it doesn't mean we're breaking up. We made it through kids and that's a tough one when you're not the actual parent. As a couple you're stronger for it."
Last year, the twins hit their early twenties and headed west for career opportunities in Calgary, leaving the couple with an empty nest. Alone for the first time, they renovated their entire house. "We are quiet people, have good Friends and live a really good life," says Ms. COATES. " We've had a great year, having fun, back to who we were when the kids were younger."
"We wanted to be married, in bliss. It didn't have anything to do with the law changing," says Ms. MONIZ.
Ambivalent about what path to follow, and convinced by a friend that they'd regret eloping, the pair formalized a wedding in two weeks. ("What are you doing next Friday?" Ms. COATES asked her family.) Everything fell into place, including rings that fit without sizing. And the delighted couple were both unexpectedly feted with bridal showers by their respective colleagues. "We are very open to our companies and nobody has a problem with it," Ms COATES says. "Act like a normal person. You don't need to hide anything. You are a couple. People see that."
On May 27, at Mississauga Civic Centre, before an intimate gathering of parents and siblings, the Reverend Tina GABRIEL performed their nuptials. A cozy reception followed at Bassano Ristorante in Brampton. "It was magical," Ms. MONIZ says tenderly, "Together for 13 years, we've become family with everybody. Our parents adore each other, mine adore Liz and hers love me. I don't think I've seen so many people cry at a wedding in my entire life."

COFFING m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-04-23 published
Amy WRIGHT and Wright STAINES -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, April 23, 2005, Page M4
The careers of choreographer Amy Elizabeth WRIGHT and lighting designer Wright Harold STAINES intersected on the yellow brick road in a production of The Wizard of Oz at the Grand Theatre in London, Ontario As in that tale, the captivated couple would soon fly over their rainbow, meet the wicked witch of bureaucratic delay and recognize they had the power to control their destiny.
But first, the tornado of fate had to throw them together.
Technically speaking, that happened in December, 2002, during the Wizard of Oz run, but the two didn't actually connect until later. They were too busy concentrating on the demands of their work, which has involved a variety of high-profile celebrities. She has worked with stars that range from Peter O'Toole and Jeremy Irons to Hilary Duff and Woody Harrelson. He has worked with some of the biggest names on Canadian stage.
The two didn't notice each other until April, 2003, during a production of The Music Man at the Grand, when they bumped into each other in the theatre's elevator. Sparks flew, but the pair tried to keep their mutual attraction quiet. Savvy members of the cast soon noticed their ardent glances, however, as Ms. WRIGHT cozied up to the lighting table.
"Wright was the first person to encourage me to share my feelings, and he's funny," she says. "He's the first guy I really trust and can be myself with 100 per cent, and he'll still love me at the end of the day. Even if I argue with Wright, it's still okay."
The beguiled Mr. STAINES calls her "bright and shiny like a penny, gregarious and vivacious."
By December, he proposed. Mr. STAINES had been married once before, and his divorce papers hadn't been finalized. But with career obligations forcing them to spend much time apart, he says he decided "to risk marriage again because I can't give her up, and if I didn't, somebody else would get her."
He was familiar with life on the move, working as a roadie doing lighting design for rock and roll bands before settling into a long-term position at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and later in his current position as head of lighting design at the Grand Theatre. At 44, he now sticks close to London, while Ms. WRIGHT has a working life that's more peripatetic.
Now 33, she was inspired by a workshop at the University of Western Ontario and "followed her dream as a dancer," enrolling at the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in Toronto. A part-time stint with Stephanie GARIN, casting director for such Toronto productions as Mamma Mia and Rent, led to a modest choreography assignment where her prodigious talent soon became apparent. In addition to many live-theatre productions, she has choreographed two dozen movie and television features, from 1999's Superstar to the coming The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio.
While working on the latter, she taught Woody Harrelson and Julianne Moore the foxtrot. "I ended up teaching Woody, his wife, and two girls how to tap dance at their house after the shoot," she says.
Their wedding was scheduled for August of 2004, but a stray marriage certificate put a glitch in Mr. STAINES's divorce proceedings and their plans appeared to be unravelling. "I was having a breakdown, saying, 'Oh my God, we can't get married,' Ms. WRIGHT says. "I was so upset, and devastated that I was going to call off the wedding."
Officiant Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON, however, proposed a solution: a commitment ceremony. The idea thrilled the couple. "We decided because we had come so far with our wedding plans we would go with it," Ms. WRIGHT says, "and if the paperwork arrived in time to do it legally, fine. If it didn't, we'd have the most important part, committing and saying we love each other."
The ceremony took place on August 23, an off-night Monday for their theatre colleagues, on a sunset cruise in Toronto Harbour aboard the chartered yacht Yankee Lady III. The onboard reception for 110 guests was a summery barbecue, enlivened with red and white gingham and lantern accents. Later, as the vessel headed to shore, a coincidental pyrotechnic display at the Canadian National Exhibition lit up the sky, heralding the occasion.
Almost six months later, the tardy divorce papers finally in hand, the couple staged the legally prescribed finale on Valentine's Day, exactly 35 years after the bride's parents were wed, in a Rosedale home. The principals, minister, vows and wedding dress were a repeat performance. Graham COFFING, who appeared in the musical Bat Boy, stood for the bride, and Jenny KENT witnessed for her brother, the bridegroom. "Who gets to wear their wedding dress twice?" enthuses the bride, delighted with her new name, Mrs. Wright STAINES. " Two Wrights are too confusing."
As for others who find themselves on a tortuous path of marital red tape, the bridegroom has this advice: "Don't wait for love. If it's important to you, just have a commitment ceremony, and finish the legalities later."

Annabel Jane GRIFFITHS and Timothy Stuart FITZSIMMONS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, January 14, 2006, Page M4
While they were still just Friends, Annabel GRIFFITHS wrote in her diary about her affinity with Timothy FITZSIMMONS: " Time we spend together is like we are building a step in a staircase. One day we will complete the staircase, look at this world we have created together, and kiss."
The two met in 1995 at Ryerson's theatre school, but the next year their careers and lives took divergent paths. An English graduate from the University of Western Ontario, Ms. GRIFFITHS established herself as an actor, writer and certified yoga instructor. She co-wrote (along with Alison Lawrence and Mary-Francis Moore) a semi-autobiographical play, bittergirl, a sassy comedy about getting on after getting dumped. The three starred in its London, New York and Toronto hit runs. Mr. FITZSIMMONS, during this time, graduated in English from McGill University and pursued a master's in journalism at New York University.
The two exchanged perfunctory e-mail messages and phone calls, but sustained their Friendship with a Jane Austen-like exchange of letters, where they shared sentiments that tiptoed around romance. "We loved the way we could express ideas and talk about things going on in our lives," Ms. GRIFFITHS says.
Queried as to why he was so obsessed with Ms. GRIFFITHS by fellow student Yon MOTSKIN -- later his best man -- Mr. FITZSIMMONS admitted: "I think this is the girl I'm going to marry. I have to go and see Annabel."
Thus, on a Labour Day visit home in 2000, he arranged a dinner date, shifting their standard scenario from coffee to candlelight as he resolved to "put it all on the table and tell Annabel." Despite an enchanting evening, Mr. FITZSIMMONS was afraid unrequited love would jeopardize their Friendship. He abandoned his effort and, disconsolate, trundled off to visit his parents in Kitchener.
Speaking to her friend Jen COMISH, Ms. GRIFFITHS lamented: "He's going back to New York. It will be months before I see him, and am I always going to wonder?" Ms. COMISH -- her future maid of honour -- persuaded her to call him before he left Kitchener, and she cast her fate with a message.
"I met him at the bus stop. We were grinning from ear to ear, went for a drink, and had our first kiss," she says of their decisive moment.
That fall, Ms. GRIFFITHS visited Mr. FITZSIMMONS several times. They walked all of Manhattan, enjoying Central Park, the East Village and Broadway.
By 2001, he was back in Toronto working as a website writer and editor until he entered Osgoode Hall Law School the next year. By December, 2004, they had moved "from hesitation to certainty." So after requesting Ms. GRIFFITHS' hand from her parents with a written declaration of his love, he surprised her with a weekend at Niagara-on-the-Lake's Oban Inn.
Mr. FITZSIMMONS recounted fond memories of vacations there as they crunched past his grandparents' former home, to the lake, where he proposed. "I said, 'Of course, but will you marry me?' " she recalls, teary-eyed. "We put the ring on, jumped in the snow, hugged and held hands just as the sun was setting."
On October 9, the Pillar and Post welcomed her English family and his Scottish family to their rose garden wedding, where Rev. Derek RYMARCHUK officiated. Their gifts to one another reflected a Victorian sensibility: He offered a love letter and diamond necklace in exchange for an engraved pocket watch.
Today, Mr. FITZSIMMONS, 32, articles at Fraser Milner Casgrain, as the new Mrs. FITZSIMMONS, 34, who will retain her maiden name professionally, juggles her artistic career while directing OmZone, a yoga and wellness company. "It's almost as if our souls were circling one another and when the time was right we came together," she says.

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.

Thomas COOK and Brenda COOK --
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, April 16, 2005, Page M6
Thomas George COOK's eyes welled with tears when he saw his bride in her ivory wedding gown, descending the staircase at Grande St. Lucian Resort in St. Lucia. "She looked so beautiful I was breathless and started to cry," he says.
Onlookers cheered the couple as they walked down a pathway to exchange vows in an ocean-side garden before a local registrar.
Finally, after four children and a quarter-century of marriage, Brenda COOK was wed in the traditional dress she had missed out on the first time around.
On December 30, the residents of Georgetown, Ontario, renewed their vows to mark their 25th anniversary, the first time in their marriage that they had ever been on a holiday without their children.
"We were worried about how we were going to interact alone together without kids," Mr. COOK says, but his wife enthuses, "We fell in love with each other all over again."
The ceremony fulfilled a long-held wish of Mrs. COOK's, her husband says. "Over the years of our marriage I have always asked her, 'Had you any regrets about how we were married?' and she said, 'The only regret I had was not wearing a white wedding gown.'"
They met in 1977 when she, then Brenda May LAW, was 16 and he was two years her senior. His older sister had been enlisted to supervise her and two siblings while their parents vacationed in Florida.
Mr. COOK says he thought he "shouldn't go out with her because she was too young," but her parents supported the relationship and the romance flowered.
Although they envisioned a traditional wedding three years later, the pair were married in a quiet civil ceremony after the new Anglican minister at her family's church posed an impediment.
"He didn't know our family or me," she remembers, "and thought Tom and I were far too young and wanted us to take marriage classes at the church."
But Mr. COOK rebelled upon learning the minister himself was not married. "What does somebody who isn't, or hasn't been married, going to tell us, whose parents have been married over 25 years?" he says. "I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Brenda and anything he told me was not going to change that."
So she enlisted a family friend, Supreme Court judge John GREENWOOD, to marry them in his chambers at Osgoode Hall in Toronto on January 18, 1980. It was the first and only time he had performed a wedding. "We were happy just to get married," Mr. COOK says.
The young couple also surprised their new neighbours as they moved into their first home, in Port Credit. When asked when their parents were going to arrive, Mrs. COOK responded, "We are not helping our parents move in. This is my, and my husband's, home."
They would be blessed with four children, Tom, 23, Robynn, 22, William, 14, and Katelynn, 12, all of whom demonstrate academic and athletic excellence. They share their parents' love of the outdoors and respect for the environment. The two younger children and their mother regularly cycle the Martin Goodman Trail to Toronto.
When the couple decided to renew their vows, she explored the bridal salons with her daughters. "My youngest daughter picked out a Cinderella dress," laughs Mrs. COOK, an administrative assistant at Extendicare.
Wearing the gown was a highlight of the trip for her. "I wasn't allowed to see it until the day of the wedding," says Mr. COOK, a supervisor with Toronto Hydro, adding that she dined and danced in it until 4 a.m.
Before the trip to St. Lucia, their children arranged a surprise party to mark their parents' silver anniversary. Robynn encapsulates the couple's journey: "My parents have never had things easy. From day one of their marriage at such a young age they have strived to stay afloat even when the going got tough. They have supported me along the way in every goal that I have achieved -- and even those I've failed."
