Naomi Malka SHUPAK and Mark DRIMAN -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, August 27, 2005, Page M4
Born just nine days apart and together since they were teens, the only thing Naomi Malka SHUPAK and Mark DRIMAN seem to be at odds about is how they met. "I remember distinctly being introduced to her on the beach my first year at [Timberlane] summer camp," Mr. DRIMAN says. Ms. SHUPAK, on the other hand, says she didn't notice her future husband until 10th grade at the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto.
But since the pair's first official outing -- to their Grade 10 prom -- they have been exclusive. "I don't really know anything about dating, because I never really dated," admits Ms. SHUPAK, 25. "But I don't feel at all like I'm missing out."
After graduating from Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto in 1998, he did a year at Thornlea Secondary School, while Ms. SHUPAK began studying at York University. The following year, they both enrolled at the University of Western Ontario in London.
Mr. DRIMAN graduated with an honours degree in business administration and was awarded the University of Western Ontario Scholarship of Distinction in 2000. Ms. SHUPAK completed first a B. Sc. in psychology, then an M. Sc. in medical biophysics and won both the University of Western Ontario Chancellor's Prize in Social Science and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Canada Graduate Scholarship in 2003, as well as several other research awards.
Despite hard work at school, the couple did find time to spend with Friends, attend charity balls and participate in a memorable, and moving, tour called March of the Living, which brings Jewish youth from all over the world to Auschwitz and Birkenau on Holocaust Memorial Day and then to Israel for Independence Day.
Upon graduation, the couple were separated again when Mr. DRIMAN took a position as an investment banker at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Toronto. On weekends, Ms. SHUPAK, still at University of Western Ontario, visited him, and he spared her the lonely schlep home by accompanying her back to London on Sunday evenings. On Monday, he would wake up early and whistle back to the city on the train just in time for work.
On March 18, 2004, on the eve of Ms. SHUPAK's master's dissertation, Mr. DRIMAN made their separation that much easier -- by bringing her an engagement ring. "I think we have known forever that we wanted to get married," Mr. DRIMAN says. "All the things that happen in life, the big steps -- moving away to go to university, going on your first trip without your parents, graduating, moving out, milestones in one's life -- we've been through them together."
Mr. DRIMAN has been helping Ms. SHUPAK with yet another milestone. Following in the footsteps of her father, aunt and uncle, Ms. SHUPAK is currently studying medicine at the University of Toronto. To keep her at her best, Mr. DRIMAN provides some "chicken soup for the fiancée." Says Ms. SHUPAK: "On many occasions, he'd come from work to prepare a meal while I was studying for exams and then return for what could result in extremely late nights for him at the office."
The two were wed on July 10 at Adath Israel Congregation, with Rabbi David C. SEED officiating. Included in the wedding party was four-month-old Madeline Anne, the bride's niece, who was carried down the aisle by her parents Debbie and Marc BAKER. The bridesmaids held rose bouquets, each in a different hue of pink. The bride wore a strapless dress adorned with crystals and pearls, designed by Jim Helm, underneath a bolero jacket.
The celebration was not without some sadness. Ms. SHUPAK's grandmother passed away in January. "They had talked on the phone many times a day," Mr. DRIMAN says. In tribute, the ceremony was performed with her wedding ring and the bride wore her heirloom pearl earrings, complemented by a pearl necklace from the bridegroom's grandmother, Ray CHUDY.
Under the chuppa, the bride symbolically circled her bridegroom seven times. This tradition is said to represent creativity (the earth being created in seven days) and a sevenfold bond between the couple and their families. Now, the two just need to agree on their own creation story.

Nancy LAU and Jeremy TAMM
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, January 15, 2005 - Page M6
'What's a girl like me doing in a place like this?" was the thought that flitted through Nancy LAU's mind as, numb, drenched and exhausted, she and boyfriend Jeremy TAMM forged the slithery slopes of Mount Washington in New Hampshire. At 6,288 feet, the inhospitable peak is reputed to have the world's worst weather and winds -- and a trail marked with memorials. So for Ms. LAU, a cosmopolitan Toronto native, the ascent was tough.
"Before I met Jeremy, my only experience with the outdoors was hailing a cab on King Street," she says.
The pair became painfully aware that the rosy view that had seduced them as they motored a paved road to the peak a few years earlier was an illusion. On this hiking trip, in late June of 2003, they encountered a harshly different reality. "We were expecting it to be like the Bruce Trail, dirt and some boulders, but the whole thing is rock and steep. You are stepping up boulder after boulder," Ms. LAU says.
"It was 30 degrees at the base, beautiful, sunny," Mr. TAMM adds. "But it started raining, we hit clouds and at the top it was four degrees."
His idyllic vision of conquering the mountain and presenting a ring dimmed, until a bedraggled Ms. LAU plunked herself down on an outcropping.
Seizing the moment, the deflated Mr. TAMM rallied. "This is the first place we visited together... and it has been a long journey to get back," he told Ms. LAU, and despite her desultory staccato responses of "yes... yes," he persevered and proffered the ring. Suddenly, in a spectacular tour de force, a revivified Ms. LAU dynamited to the summit and dashed down the mountain to call her parents, with Mr. TAMM in dogged pursuit.
It was the Canada Day long weekend, and her diamond, a Canadian stone, was especially meaningful to her. "It's really significant that I am first-generation Canadian, and it's symbolic that something I'm going to wear all the time comes from my birthplace," Ms. LAU says.
Equally important was the fact that it wasn't a "blood diamond." "I wanted it to come from a place where I knew nobody was going to die because of it," she says.
Happenstance brought the two together in June, 2000, when Mr. TAMM, now 32, joined the Information Technology firm that employed Ms. LAU, a civil engineer. She offered up her PowerPoint savvy to help sharpen a presentation he was doing, and after a quick bite that turned into a four-hour conversation, their working alliance evolved into a starry liaison.
The outdoorsy Mr. TAMM, an avid snowboarder, sailboarder, mountain biker and climber, soon realized his interests differed from those of the sedentary Ms. LAU. But by Christmas, confident she was made of stern stuff, "and she'd persevere," he outfitted Ms. LAU for powdery slopes.
"Before I met Nancy, I was a committed bachelor," Mr. TAMM says, noting, "She became a constant companion and it became important to share my life with her."
"I took a couple of lessons, went to Blue Mountain [near Collingwood, Ontario], and had just learned to carve [turn] when he took me to Banff," she says. "I was totally intimidated. Being out West is a big deal for a snowboarder and I wanted him to embrace his environment, not babysit me."
Mr. TAMM, however, recalls with a laugh that when he careered black diamond runs for entire days, leaving her behind to tackle the easier green runs, "there was some serious pouting."
The venturesome Ms. LAU has since taken on another challenge, switching careers to pursue a chartered accountant designation. "Being my age, 33, there is always that conundrum: It's too late, I've got to start over, and will be taking a five-year hit. But in the end I know it will be worth it."
Mr. TAMM, meanwhile, has moved on to a position as senior sales specialist with Telus.
At Vaughan Estate on September 5, the couple recited vows, modified from Reverend Otto SEEGERS's template. Attendants rewrote tradition in the recessional by following the newlyweds "in single file as we appreciate each one as an individual," Ms. LAU explains. In lieu of wedding favours, a donation was made to the Jenny Lau Memorial Award, established when the bride's younger sister died suddenly of meningitis in 1996 while a student at the University of Toronto. The award is presented annually to a graduate of outstanding character in occupational therapy, Jenny's discipline.
"I miss Jenny deeply. My only wish is that she could have known Jeremy," Ms. LAU says.
"I loved our wedding. I could relive that day, every day for the rest of my life."

Penny HICKS and Simon WHISTON -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page M4
Penelope Ruth HICKS was raised in a secular family, but she took a leap of faith on her second date with Simon Edward WHISTON, clinging to him on her first-ever snowboarding trip as they hurtled down the slopes of Blue Mountain near Collingwood, Ontario
Shaky on this unfamiliar apparatus, Ms. HICKS and the veteran snowboarder sped -- and tumbled -- down the hills hand-in-hand.
"Si holding me up, down the mountain, I literally fell in love with him head over heels," she says.
"No guts, no glory," Mr. WHISTON adds of the daring manoeuvre, laughing.
Faith and questions of spirituality would propel the couple through difficult times and secure their bonds.
Ms. HICKS and her sister dabbled in religion as children. "We'd call on Friends to go to church with them. Our parents were supportive of whatever faith we wanted to explore."
Her fascination yielded to typical teenage distractions, but revived in university when Ms. HICKS, who plays the French horn, switched her major at McGill University in Montreal from music to religious studies. Now an account manager with Canadian Business magazine, she says: "I never thought about what I'd become, I just wanted to study my passion."
Mr. WHISTON, now a sales manager at CDI, grew up in a conformist Catholic family and evolved at university into a lapsed Catholic dogged by low-grade guilt. "You go through that period of questioning faith and organized religion," he says.
The pair had a false start when they first met in April of 2000 through a mutual friend at a 26th-birthday bash for Mr. WHISTON. Shortly after, they bumped into each other at a Toronto restaurant. "Simon talked my ear off for a couple of hours... but I was involved with someone else, and it just wasn't going to the next step," Ms. HICKS remembers.
A graduate of the University of Western Ontario, Mr. WHISTON laments, "I was living in London and could tell she wasn't interested."
They reconnected at another gathering in January of 2001, and two weeks later the busy and still not terribly interested Ms. HICKS "squeezed me in between 10 and 12" at night for a drink, Mr. WHISTON chuckles. But this time the chemistry was obvious and he offered to teach her snowboarding the next weekend.
Ms. HICKS's curiosity about religion prompted Mr. WHISTON to revisit his Catholic roots. "There are not a lot of people who talk about spirituality or faith these days -- it's not cool or mainstream," he says. "I was thrilled that Penny was interested and again became interested in going to church."
"In the first few months," she adds, "we talked about God, not in the context of the Catholic Church or of Christianity, but we knew something bigger than us was bringing us together."
They were inexorably headed for marriage, but Mr. WHISTON threw Ms. HICKS a red herring as they prepared for a Christmas vacation in Tahiti in 2003. "Don't get your hopes up -- I'm not proposing on this trip," he told her, leaving her crestfallen.
Actually, he had a ring in his pocket as they got ready to board the airplane. "I was nervous it could set off the metal detector and I'd have to get down on my knee at the airport," he says.
On December 23, they biked a gruelling 40 kilometres in 35-degree heat along the coast of the volcanic island of Moorea, encouraging each other with exhortations of what an amazing adventure it was. Exhausted, they recuperated and cooled off on a beach, waves caressing them, when Mr. WHISTON took his cue. "Penny HICKS, would you like the adventure to continue, will you marry me?" he asked, and produced the ring.
They enrolled in a Catholic marriage preparation course that reinforced their union and had them "asking tough questions about finances, children, expectations and sexuality," he says. "It gives you tools to work through the tough times and stay committed."
Meanwhile, Ms. HICKS resolved her religious quandary and converted to Catholicism. "It was a decision on my part," she says. "The Catholic faith spoke to me, but it was also a commitment to Simon and the family we will hopefully have."
On January 29, Reverend Jim SERCELY wed the couple, both 30, at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Etobicoke, with a reception following at the nearby St. George's Golf and Country Club.
They went on a snowboarding honeymoon through Europe and were amused to discover that their exploits at Blue Mountain four years ago had become legendary. A Canadian couple they met in Switzerland turned out to belong to the same Collingwood ski club and asked the newlyweds whether they had heard of the pair who had snowboarded down the slopes in tandem.
Although Mr. WHISTON and Ms. HICKS, who is now an expert snowboarder, no longer practise such moves, she says: "I still say 'hold me' as we get off the chairlift."

SERGO m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-15 published
Nevena SERGO and Bradley David SPENCER -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M5
Nevena SERGO and Bradley SPENCER were so content to watch the carnival of life parade by that it took 17 years for them to hop on the marriage-go-round. "People jump, and don't know what they are getting into. Some Friends, who are married, have kids and look worn out. Others, married only a few years, are getting divorced. But we've seen it all," Mr. SPENCER observes with a laugh. "Life is hard -- jobs, kids, finances."
"I wasn't one of those girls who felt she had to get married right away. We are comfortable with a Friendship that has love at its base," explains Ms. SERGO, who adds that, at 39, they are patient, stable and both ready, at last, for marriage and a family.
In 1989, Mr. SPENCER, an employee of Wood Gundy, encountered Ms. SERGO, a recent graduate of the University of Western Ontario, when he made security deliveries to her at what was then Canada Trust. Tall, blond and cocksure, he was seduced by her intellect and good looks, but his advances received scant attention until he arrived one day with his arm in a cast. Momentarily disarmed, she signed it and included her number.
When a cavalier Mr. SPENCER imperiously decided his break had healed, he cut away the cast and pitched it into the trash, only to scramble to retrieve the pieces -- and her phone number -- later. Shortly thereafter, he called with a lunch invitation, but Bay Street was bustling and Ms. SERGO declined. Ultimately, however, she succumbed to his rakish charm, agreeing to a brief meeting. "He brought me lunch. I thought that was sweet, and I guess that was when I started changing my mind."
Now an associate at TD Asset Management, Ms. SERGO is singular in her career direction, but she acknowledges, "When you work downtown, people are focused on their industry, limited, and don't socialize outside of a certain group. I work in it 12 hours a day, and don't want to come home to it for another eight hours."
Over the years, the free-spirited Mr. SPENCER became her counterpoint. He travels, relishing the outdoors, in his work as a geotechnical and environmental driller who extracts samples -- down to bedrock -- for analysis before construction projects can proceed.
He concedes that Ms. SERGO has moulded him, making him "a better person," introducing him to her cultural spheres, including the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario. In turn, he has directed her to some of Toronto's tonier clubs and has introduced her to sailing and snorkelling. "What I do is completely different from what he does," she notes, "so we enjoy spending time together, talking about our days."
As time went by, Ms. SERGO admits, "we were enjoying our lives. We took trips without having a mortgage or any commitments that would require our energy." Yet, the tripwire was sprung in 2003 when they bought a house. As it happened, Mr. SPENCER was its sole occupant when Ms. SERGO's mother became ill and the dutiful daughter stayed with her as a caregiver.
By March 12, 2005, Ms. SERGO's mother had rallied and her "old school" father had given his consent. Across a table for two at Avenue, in the Four Seasons Hotel, Mr. SPENCER proposed. "I started crying when I looked at her, and she said I didn't have to get down on my knee," he remembers. Minutes later she blinked back tears as sequestered family members spilled forth bearing champagne and flowers.
On April 1, at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Brampton, Rev. Vitaliano PAPAIS wed the couple. Later, they celebrated with all those significant in their lives at the Royal Ambassador Banquet Hall in Caledon.
Mr. SPENCER adamantly espouses: "You get married; you wear the ring!" Planning to sport two bands, he believes his long-awaited marriage is as strong as the tungsten steel ring he'll be wearing while on the job.
