Victoria Mireille HOCKIN and Craig Arthur LAURENCE -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
After dating for five months, Victoria HOCKIN and Craig LAURENCE were still proceeding cautiously until a trip to Boston for a U2 concert propelled their romance to the next level. There, as they strolled through an outdoor market, past a coterie of buskers, she describes "a turning point for both of us. One busker was playing, All You Need Is Love, and a group of kids were clapping, singing along. As Craig and I walked by, he stopped, pointed and said, 'There's a couple in love, right there!' He said, 'Kiss her,' and the kids went, 'Kiss her! Kiss her!' Craig grabbed me, kissed me and did one of those little dips you do when you're dancing."
"It was a poignant moment. I'll never forget it," adds Mr. LAURENCE.
Each of them had recently become disentangled, when they met in January, 2005. Mutual Friends arranged a double date with the two, only to opt out at the last moment and leave the couple to their own devices. After a long revelatory evening "out for pints," Mr. LAWRENCE, who is a Chartered Accountant and a graduate of Queen's University and the University of Windsor, was enchanted -- in awe of Ms. HOCKIN's accomplishments and taken with her humour. "It left me wanting to get to know her more," he admits.
Sadly, the following morning she was spirited away to the Palm Springs Film Festival where her Last Mogul documentary on the legendary Lou Wasserman premiered as a smash hit. (It would later be featured in New York and Toronto, as well.) "Craig e-mailed for the whole weekend, checking in and taking a real interest in what I was doing, which was really nice," she recalls. "I gave him a call when I got back."
Products of an idyllic adolescence, the couple had grown up in Aurora, spending their summers at Muskoka camps and cottages. He was an accomplished guitarist and she was a pianist. Together, they saw music "as another language that we speak." She laughs as she shares Mr. LAURENCE's recurring fantasy: "He'd like to say 'rock star,' but he's not."
Their parents knew each other, and Mr. LAURENCE, now 36, had attended St. Andrews College, where Ms. HOCKIN's father had earlier been headmaster. "There aren't that many girls who can talk about what it's like to grow up in a boys' boarding school," she chuckles.
With a B.A. in English from University of Western Ontario's Huron College, Ms. HOCKIN, now 34, is the executive vice-president and a partner at Endeavour Marketing. There, over the past six years -- enlisting her business partner, Barry AVRICH, as a writer and director -- she has produced documentaries.
In September, 2005, Mr. LAURENCE, a new business-development corporate strategist at Canadian Tire Corp. Ltd., planned a Positano getaway for the two of them. Ms. HOCKIN's aspirations soared. But then, in a riveting performance (citing insufficient time to seek her parents' permission, let alone choose a ring,) Mr. LAURENCE provided the reality check: "I just need you to manage your expectations. It's not going to happen in Italy."
"I really bought it," Ms. HOCKIN admits, determined not to be disappointed. She was subsequently astonished, then, on the balcony of their villa in Amalfia -- as they chatted over wine and the dinner she'd just made -- when Mr. LAURENCE proffered the ring.
On February 4, 2006, at St. Paul's Anglican Church on Bloor Street, the Rev. Tim HAUGHTON officiated, as three-year-old Foxtyn STEPHEN, the bridegroom's nephew and ring bearer, performed flawlessly -- despite an unnerving left turn and his disappearance at the rehearsal. A gourmet reception followed at the Toronto Hunt Club, with grilled cheese sandwiches, chocolate chip cookies and milk shooters capping the evening.
"Craig is a mathematical guy, but creative when it comes to music. Doing very different things in our careers gives us a lot to talk about," Mrs. LAURENCE enthuses. Her husband adds, "Tori is a romantic, and it's great to be on the receiving end. I like to think I'm on the giving end, as well."

Tracy WYNNE and David CLARK -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, March 19, 2005 Page M6
David Leonard CLARK was teaching romantic literature at Trent University in 1985 when he encountered a professorial dilemma. Her name was Tracy Lee WYNNE.
The self-described "gaunt, brooding young professor" was struggling to finish his doctoral dissertation and wasn't looking for distractions. He was also well aware of the thorny ethical issues that arise out of student-teacher relationships.
But Ms. WYNNE was "a vivacious, gifted undergraduate with freckles and fair hair," he recalls. "I felt there was this kind of integrity about Tracy, with real intellectual honesty, a woman brimming with intelligence. After years of dating catastrophes she seemed too good to be true."
The attraction was mutual. Almost 30 at the time, Dr. CLARK appealed to Ms. WYNNE in a way that many of her fellow students didn't.
"I have to confess I was immediately struck by David's intelligence and intensity, coupled with the kind of maturity that at the time I didn't find in my fellow 20-year-olds," Ms. WYNNE explains. "It had an infinite appeal for me."
Their ensuing relationship, a model of propriety, was confined to long walks, diverse discussions and wistful glances as they weighed their options. She could remain in his class and observe university decorum or choose another course. "When you're 20, a year seems like a long time," says Ms. WYNNE, "so I dropped the course, picked up another and didn't feel that I was compromising my education."
Eight months later, distance and finances challenged the underpinnings of their romance. Dr. CLARK moved to Connecticut after receiving a postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University -- a distinction that led to "two intense years," he says, "where I threw myself into critical theory."
Ms. WYNNE, meanwhile, had run out of money and had to put her education on hold. To raise enough funds to continue, she took a job in Peterborough. "I... did the honourable work of scooping ice cream and managing a frozen-yogurt store to keep body and soul together and collect enough cash to go back to school," she says. "A helpful travel agent would tell me when I could get a flight to Hartford for $79 return, and it seemed like a king's ransom at the time."
Copious letters connected them. Mirroring a Jane Austen gallant, the sensitive Dr. CLARK has kept them. "They're an archive of what we wrote," he says. "Now, we'd be communicating by e-mail and it would just get deleted."
"We are firm believers that distance does make the heart grow fonder," Ms. WYNNE says.
But when Dr. CLARK joined the staff at McMaster University in 1988 the two took up residence together in a modest apartment in downtown Hamilton, surviving a "boiling summer" together without air conditioning. With pluck and poise Ms. WYNNE completed her undergraduate studies in English literature and history there, then began a law degree at Osgoode Hall. "I drove the life out of our tiny red Hyundai for three years," says Ms. WYNNE, "and when I graduated we moved to Toronto in 1993."
Since then, Dr. CLARK has become the commuter, travelling to Hamilton to teach English as well as supervise M.A. and Ph.D. candidates on A.I.D.S. activism. It's a topic that combines his interest in the social and cultural phenomena of disease with his desire to help some of the people he and Ms. WYNNE know "who are Human Immunodeficiency Virus-positive and struggling to live with that."
Ms. WYNNE, a partner in the boutique firm Lax O'Sullivan Scott, also takes an active interest in social issues, volunteering with Second Harvest food bank and serving on the board of the Bond Street Nursery School, which services the Regent Park community.
In their 16-year committed relationship the pair had exchanged rings and were regarded as de facto married, but as they strolled last June near Allan Gardens Ms. WYNNE was "caught off-guard" by a proposal.
Soberly, Dr. CLARK reflects on why he thought they should formalize their relationship: "So much seems to be falling apart. In a world of war and terror, we feel an ever sharpening sense of the preciousness of what we have in terms of the richness of family and Friends."
Clearly they didn't want to take each other for granted.
The sunset, the sound of tree frogs and hundreds of incandescent blooms announced the beginning of their wedding ceremony, which took place on December 29 in the British Virgin Islands.
Deputy Registrar Hugh Allington HODGE performed the nuptials before a party of eight at Toa Toa House nestled in the hills of Tortola, overlooking Sir Francis Drake's Channel.
A month later, at Canoe, the couple hosted a black-tie reception, where 140 guests sipped island-themed martinis and confections by Eat My Words, a non-profit organization whose proceeds go to Out of the Cold.
To those who still don't understand why they chose to marry after 16 years, Dr. CLARK offers this response: "A poem, Two Words: A Wedding by bp Nichol, read by Dr. Marina LESLIE at our reception is the best answer."
An excerpt reads, "There are things you have words for. Things you do not have words for. There are words that encompass all your feelings and words that encompass none..."

Jamie LAWSON and Leo RAUTINS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, April 30, 2005, Page M6
Lyricist Carl Sigman's 1950s classic line, "Many a tear has to fall, but it's all in the game," could have been Jamie LAWSON and Leo RAUTINS's theme song until the two met and their romance became a slam dunk.
A basketball phenomenon at Saint Michael's College in Toronto, Mr. RAUTINS was inducted into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame and played 10 years for Canada's national team. He starred with the Syracuse University Orangemen and was a first-round draft choice of the Philadelphia 76ers, for whom he played in 1983-84. Then, after a brief stint with the Atlanta Hawks, his professional play was in Europe until 1992. A career switch to broadcasting led to his role as a television analyst for the Toronto Raptors since their 1995 inception.
Meanwhile, Jamie LAWSON, a native Texan raised in Memphis, was growing up the antithesis of a demure southern belle. "I was very feminine and a pretty little girl, but into sports and competitive," she says. "I was upset I was born a girl and really wanted to be a quarterback."
As a child, she parked in front of her black-and-white television, captivated by any and every sport, and soon became a trivia buff. At university, her associate degree in biology had her dreaming of sports medicine, but a successful dalliance in modelling led her to recruitment management.
When a mutual friend introduced the pair at Ms. LAWSON's alma mater, the University of North Carolina, at a 2001 charity basketball game, their encounter was definitely a three pointer. "We hit it off and went for dinner," she says, and it was she who took Mr. RAUTINS's number. Her 2 a.m. call to his hotel later that evening had them chatting for four hours. "We started talking about basketball, and I think I won him over at that point because I knew more about college basketball than he did, because the National Basketball Association schedule took so much of his time," she laughs.
Ms. LAWSON was emerging from a disastrous relationship when they met, and Mr. RAUTINS was grappling with a divorce. "Neither one of us was remotely interested in having a relationship," he says, "but there was something there, and we became good Friends." Three weeks later, the tug of attraction, reinforced by a flurry of phone calls, had a glowing Ms. LAWSON jetting to Toronto.
"Leo was there for me through a very tough time, and I was there for him," she says. "It didn't take long to realize that we were soul mates and meant for each other."
Mr. RAUTINS's celeb status has deflected the spotlight from the fetching Ms. LAWSON. " I've never been with a man who, when we enter a room, gets more attention than I do," she chuckles. "It's amusing and a relief. People come up, say hi and turn completely from me."
Scarcely a year after they met, Ms. LAWSON was confident enough in the tenure of their relationship to purchase a Toronto condo as her base and the couple's time alternated between their residences here and in Syracuse, where Mr. RAUTINS's children live.
"There are no secrets. She knows absolutely everything about me and vice versa. Those small white lies to avoid problems are not part of our relationship," Mr. RAUTINS, 45, says. His children, 20-year-old Michael, Andrew, 16, Jay 14, and five-year-old Sammy welcomed Ms. LAWSON as part of their team. "They have extended themselves to me and opened their hearts," says Ms. LAWSON, cognizant that she was "marrying the family."
The couple's journey toward marriage was influenced by the mystique of black swans they saw together on a visit to a jungle zoo in Elmvale, Ontario, near Barrie. The swans, which mate for life in secure family units, embody the commitment that touched a chord for the pair and provided their wedding theme. The date for their nuptials, February 19, was scheduled during the National Basketball Association all-star break to accommodate Mr. RAUTINS's telecast schedule.
The bridesmaids in black and the best men -- all the bridegroom's sons -- waited at The Westin Harbour Castle hotel as the couple approached together on an aisle runner decorated with black swans. The 5-foot, 7-inch bride, in a bias-cut black silk gown backed by a subtle train, and her 6-foot, 8-inch bridegroom, in a black tuxedo and black silk T-shirt, exchanged personal vows in front of Reverend Bob HOLMES before an intimate gathering of 60 guests. At the cocktail reception following, confections by 12 Ohh!cakesions of two black swans and two basketballs bearing the University of North Carolina and the University of Syracuse logos, respectively, continued their theme.
Mrs. LAWSON RAUTINS, 33, has embraced her new vocation as homemaker to her husband, the boys, and one-year-old Kujo, their boxer puppy. Mr. RAUTINS has been named head coach of the senior men's Canadian national basketball team, which will begin competition this summer. If the Canadian team has the resolution of Team RAUTINS, possibilities abound.

A basketball phenomenon at St. Michael's College in Toronto, Mr. RAUTINS was inducted into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame and played 10 years for Canada's national team. He starred with the Syracuse University Orangemen and was a first-round draft choice of the Philadelphia 76ers, for whom he played in 1983-84. Then, after a brief stint with the Atlanta Hawks, his professional play was in Europe until 1992. A career switch to broadcasting led to his role as a television analyst for the Toronto Raptors since their 1995 inception.
Meanwhile, Jamie LAWSON, a native Texan raised in Memphis, was growing up the antithesis of a demure southern belle. "I was very feminine and a pretty little girl, but into sports and competitive," she says. "I was upset I was born a girl and really wanted to be a quarterback."
As a child, she parked in front of her black-and-white television, captivated by any and every sport, and soon became a trivia buff. At university, her associate degree in biology had her dreaming of sports medicine, but a successful dalliance in modelling led her to recruitment management.
When a mutual friend introduced the pair at Ms. LAWSON's alma mater, the University of North Carolina, at a 2001 charity basketball game, their encounter was definitely a three pointer. "We hit it off and went for dinner," she says, and it was she who took Mr. RAUTINS's number. Her 2 a.m. call to his hotel later that evening had them chatting for four hours. "We started talking about basketball, and I think I won him over at that point because I knew more about college basketball than he did, because the National Basketball Association schedule took so much of his time," she laughs.
Ms. LAWSON was emerging from a disastrous relationship when they met, and Mr. RAUTINS was grappling with a divorce. "Neither one of us was remotely interested in having a relationship," he says, "but there was something there, and we became good Friends." Three weeks later, the tug of attraction, reinforced by a flurry of phone calls, had a glowing Ms. LAWSON jetting to Toronto.
"Leo was there for me through a very tough time, and I was there for him," she says. "It didn't take long to realize that we were soul mates and meant for each other."
Mr. RAUTINS's celeb status has deflected the spotlight from the fetching Ms. LAWSON. " I've never been with a man who, when we enter a room, gets more attention than I do," she chuckles. "It's amusing and a relief. People come up, say hi and turn completely from me."
Scarcely a year after they met, Ms. LAWSON was confident enough in the tenure of their relationship to purchase a Toronto condo as her base and the couple's time alternated between their residences here and in Syracuse, where Mr. RAUTINS's children live.
"There are no secrets. She knows absolutely everything about me and vice versa. Those small white lies to avoid problems are not part of our relationship," Mr. RAUTINS, 45, says. His children, 20-year-old Michael, Andrew, 16, Jay 14, and five-year-old Sammy welcomed Ms. LAWSON as part of their team. "They have extended themselves to me and opened their hearts," says Ms. LAWSON, cognizant that she was "marrying the family."
The couple's journey toward marriage was influenced by the mystique of black swans they saw together on a visit to a jungle zoo in Elmvale, Ontario, near Barrie. The swans, which mate for life in secure family units, embody the commitment that touched a chord for the pair and provided their wedding theme. The date for their nuptials, February 19, was scheduled during the National Basketball Association all-star break to accommodate Mr. RAUTINS's telecast schedule.
The bridesmaids in black and the best men -- all the bridegroom's sons -- waited at The Westin Harbour Castle hotel as the couple approached together on an aisle runner decorated with black swans. The 5-foot, 7-inch bride, in a bias-cut black silk gown backed by a subtle train, and her 6-foot, 8-inch bridegroom, in a black tuxedo and black silk T-shirt, exchanged personal vows in front of Reverend Bob HOLMES before an intimate gathering of 60 guests. At the cocktail reception following, confections by 12 Ohh!cakesions of two black swans and two basketballs bearing the University of North Carolina and the University of Syracuse logos, respectively, continued their theme.
Mrs. LAWSON RAUTINS, 33, has embraced her new vocation as homemaker to her husband, the boys, and one-year-old Kujo, their boxer puppy. Mr. RAUTINS has been named head coach of the senior men's Canadian national basketball team, which will begin competition this summer. If the Canadian team has the resolution of Team RAUTINS, possibilities abound.
