Kareen MADIAN and David WOLF -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, July 9, 2005, Page M4
Ultimately, Kareen Melanie MADIAN would conclude that if she mixed all of the ingredients for her perfect man, David Daniel WOLF would crystallize. However, her first phone interview with him, for a syndicated radio program called Canada's Business Report, where she was a producer, left the impression he was haughty and aloof.
A colleague assured her, however, that she shouldn't judge him by that first impression: "He's an economist and needs to sound like he knows what he's talking about."
So in August, 2002, at the show's guest-appreciation night at Jump Café and Bar, she decided to take the initiative and try to find him.
"Half of Bay Street was out, and I realized that I didn't know what these people looked like and was about to leave," says Mr. WOLF, who was then senior economist and chief interest rate strategist at RBC Capital Markets. But then a "very cute girl" approached him and said, "Can I ask you a really stupid question?"
He replied that she would be surprised at the questions people asked him.
Her query, of course, was whether he was the man she had interviewed a few months earlier. She had already recognized his voice, however, and led him over to meet the group from her radio program.
That October, when she called Mr. WOLF for another interview, he floored her with his response: "This isn't our usual time. Are you calling to ask me out?"
Mr. WOLF admits it was the first time he had used such an approach. "I'm usually pretty shy. I think it reflected something deeper. I just kind of blurted it out."
An ensuing buzz zoomed through her office when she confided, "I think I just made a date with David WOLF. I called for an interview and all of a sudden we're going out for drinks."
She missed his signals at first, however, and assumed that, as the youngest economist on the street, he was just looking for professional camaraderie. Several dinners later, the façade was lifted. "I realized we were actually dating," she says.
Their paths had seemed destined to cross. A decade earlier, they had lived a short distance apart in North Toronto, and his sister, Susan, had often extolled her brother to teenage classmate Ms. MADIAN. His sister once borrowed Ms. MADIAN's library card and neglected to return a book. Harangued by the library, Ms. MADIAN followed up with a phone call, and Mr. WOLF senior had acknowledged, "That sounds like Susie."
"It was a weird, small world thing," Mr. WOLF says. "She knew my sister, and had spoken to my father."
Parental influence had prompted the entrée of both into economics. It was her mother's interest in CNBC that precipitated Ms. MADIAN's pursuit of business journalism at Ryerson University. She advised her daughter, "Where you have unrest, unemployment, people totally disenfranchised, you will find there is an economic reason for it, and there are lots of stories there." After a period at CTV, Ms. MADIAN gained an internship with CNBC in New York, and is now a Web editor of moneysense.ca.
Mr. WOLF, now 29, whose father is a professor of economics at York University, is a graduate of Princeton University in that discipline and currently chief strategist and head of Canadian economics at Merrill Lynch Canada.
Intoxicated for five months by the vibrant Ms. MADIAN, Mr. WOLF, who was in Europe on business, impulsively urged her to join him in Paris. A plane seat in doubt, his plucky lady fabricated a tale of romantic distress where she desperately needed to meet her fiancé. "'Husband' was taking it too far," she says with a laugh. It worked.
Together, they savoured the nirvana of Paris. "We were on the Left Bank, stopped for a crepe. It was this amazing feeling... in Paris, worlds away," she says. "Going on vacation with someone is a big test. We realized we could stand each other and wanted to spend more time together."
The couple had discussed marriage, and religious differences were never at issue. "I'm Christian. David is Jewish," Ms. MADIAN says. "We wouldn't call ourselves religious -- more spiritual. If we have children, we'll expose them to both our cultures."
In October, 2003, they celebrated the anniversary of their first date in Las Vegas. When Mr. WOLF knelt on the grass at the Bellagio claiming he felt ill, she visualized a proposal. "I thought, oh my God, this is it! He's pretending to be sick and is going to propose in front of the light show. It's going to be perfect," Ms. MADIAN recalls.
But her excitement turned to fear as she assisted him back to his room in the throes of nausea.
Surreptitiously, that Christmas holiday Mr. WOLF had obtained her parents' blessing. Her mother, Arpi MADIAN, says she "bonded beautifully with him," noting that they went ring shopping together at a family jeweller where she knew her daughter's ring preferences. "The minute we met David, we loved him. Frankly as a mom, I was so relieved he had active brain cells," she adds with a laugh. "He's extremely intelligent, but not arrogant, like some, or impatient with those who can't keep up. He's quite humble and sweet."
Finally, on January 10, 2004, Ms. MADIAN's birthday, a day he always purported too mundane for a proposal, he offered a ring.
At the Le Royal Meridien King Edward hotel, on June 11, the couple recited personal vows before Reverend Frank FOLZ. The newly minted Mrs. WOLF, 26, who had fantasized about being a bride since her "Barbie" days at the age of 5, stunned guests by looking like a doll herself in an Oleg Cassini gown layered in organza, with crystal bands at the waist mimicking a hair band, punctuated by her ponytail and long cathedral veil trailing behind.
There wasn't a dry eye when the newlyweds danced the bolero. Her mother recalls emotionally, "David had two left feet, and you could see he did it just for her."

HARRIS stuns guests by getting married
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Former Ontario premier Mike HARRIS married long-time companion Laura MAGUIRE Saturday night, surprising guests at their home in Woodbridge, north of Toronto.
HARRIS, 60, who recently divorced his second wife, Janet HARRIS, wed MAGUIRE, 41, in a private ceremony.
Derwyn SHAY/SHEA, a former Tory member of the Ontario legislature and 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 and MAGUIRE's second.

It's aye aye for happy pair's 'I do'
Crowning their romantic courtship, a Sarnia couple has won the Tall Ships wedding contest and will say their vows on deck August Carolyn WONG, Free Press Reporter
Watching the tall ships in Sarnia Bay was a big part of childhood for Justin HAYES and Jaime BECHARD. In August, as the majestic ships return, they'll become an even larger part of their lives when the Sarnia couple ties the knot aboard one of the historic sailing vessels.
The Tall Ships Dream Wedding Contest called for romantic proposal stories from couples all across Canada.
Contest organizers chose four stories, including the Sarnia couple's, from more than 250 entries. The stories were posted on the Tall Ships Sarnia Web site for the public to read and choose their favourite one.
"I was shocked and just blown away, BECHARD, 23, said of her reaction when she found out she had won. "I just thought, 'Pinch me.'"
The couples' romantic stories also were aired on television.
"We went for a taping and heard some other great stories," said HAYES, 31. "I had no idea that this would happen."
The couple's story included a surprise horse-and-carriage ride to a Sarnia restaurant overlooking the river, where HAYES ordered a dessert topped with a diamond ring.
He promptly got down on bended knee and said, "Jaime, today we've spent a beautiful day together and there is nothing I would rather do than to spend many more days with you in the future. You are the most important person in my life and I will always love you.
"Will you marry me?"
After BECHARD accepted the proposal, the couple went to the restaurant where they first met to celebrate with family and Friends.
"We were looking for total romantic appeal, as well as the way they spoke about it," organizer Bernie BROCKLEHURST said. "Uniqueness, thoughtfulness and creativity were the main things."
The couple, engaged May 17, can expect a stress-free wedding August 22 with the clothing, hair, makeup, limo and reception all taken care of in a package worth $10,000.
"I always said, 'When we do get married, I want something different, but our options are limited,'" BECHARD said. "But this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Tourism officials expect thousands of visitors when the 13-vessel flotilla of tall ships puts into Sarnia August 21-24. Besides shipboard activities, the festival includes an August 23 concert by the Doobie Brothers, the legendary California pop-rock band.
Tall Ships Sarnia
- When: August 21-24.
- Where: Sarnia waterfront.
- Cost: Admission varies, from $5 daily for adults for access to the grounds to $14 for a weekend pass for grounds access and boarding privileges. Admission is less for children and seniors.
- Information: Telephone (519) 337-4474 or visit the Web site at www.tallshipssarnia.com

Orlena LEE and Derek WONG -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, October 22, 2005, Page M6
Seven hours of French director François Truffaut's new wave films on Digital Video Disk -- including Derek WONG's favourite, The 400 Blows -- was the litmus test for Mr. WONG's third date with Orlena LEE. " It's tough for most people to swallow," he laughs. "I wanted to see how Orlena would take it."
It turned out to be reel love.
A native Montrealer, Ms. LEE made a career- and lifestyle-altering move to Toronto in May, 2004, as a senior consultant at Environics Communications. Tired of blind dates "with no chemistry," she had admonished her mother, "I don't want any more of these matchmaking things with another Chinese guy. It never works out."
But her mother, Eliza LEE, was undeterred. On a visit to Hong Kong, she learned from an aunt that a friend, Pun Kit Chik WONG, was seeking "a nice Chinese girl" for her son living in Toronto. An eligible, cosmopolitan Mr. WONG soon received a photo of Ms. LEE at her 1998 graduation. His initial reaction: "What am I going to do with a girl who looks so proper?"
Luckily, a few weeks later, Mr. WONG reconsidered and risked a call. "I thought, 'Everyone looks proper in a graduation photo, especially beside their mother.' "
In September, 2004, a leery but punctual Ms. LEE awaited a traffic-delayed Mr. WONG at the Bloor Street Diner. She scoured the area, frustrated because she had no idea what he looked like, just as he sprang from his car for their inauspicious lunch. "I did most of the talking," she recalls. "It's hard to make conversation with someone you don't know." Yet, later, when they strolled a University of Toronto book sale and chanced on a carillon concert at Soldiers' Tower, the resonant pealing of the bells fractured the ice.
"We started having fun and talked more," she recalls, and they discovered a shared passion for music. Ms. LEE had studied piano for 12 years and played competitively. Mr. WONG was trained in composition. "Derek loves the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and listens to classical Compact Disks in the car and at breakfast," she says. Their date drifted into Little Italy, used bookstores, and ended promisingly at the Drake Hotel, until he dropped her at home, saying he would call after a business trip. She then surmised he wasn't interested.
His surprise call two weeks later took them to the Royal Ontario Museum, where the architectural devotee studied the planned expansion on a free-admission Friday night. Mr. WONG's penchant for the design genius of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe "was one of the reasons I moved to Toronto," he jokes. "He designed the building I work in, the Toronto-Dominion Centre," says Mr. WONG, a mechanical engineer who works as a senior manager for a global accounting firm.
By the fourth date, they were serious.
"My mom said, 'Calm down, it may be over in a month. There are others in Toronto,' Ms. LEE says. But, she recalls, "it was like a fairy tale. At his Christmas office party, we went on the dance floor and had such a good time that I knew I couldn't live without Derek and had to dance with him the rest of my life."
Mr. WONG, 36, says the two share the same sensibility. "We are both neither Asian nor Western," he says. "It is not every day that you find someone at the same place in the social spectrum. We are both into books, the arts, and have a lot of fun together."
It was Valentine's Day, 2005, when Ms. LEE broached the subject of marriage, and at first blush the instant simplicity of City Hall appealed to the couple. However, by the time Mr. WONG showed up at her office wearing his best suit, bouquet in hand, and motioned toward Queen and Bay, she had already deferred to convention. "I had called my mom [and] said Derek was on the way and I was going to get married," she recalls. "She cried and said, 'We haven't even met him yet or his parents or his family.' " So he met her parents at Easter, and after a laudatory speech to them, he presented Ms. LEE with an engagement ring.
The urban couple eschewed the extremes of a stereotypical Chinese wedding -- "a restaurant with red and gold and 500 people we didn't know," Ms. LEE says -- and minimalist destination nuptials, opting instead for intimacy and individualism. At the Granite Club on August 9, about 100 guests, mostly international, perused captioned photos depicting the couple's life journey. Strains of a classical quartet echoed as officiant Allan C. LANE wed the couple. A traditional Chinese ceremony followed.
During dinner, flamenco dancers launched a Latin theme that continued throughout the evening. At the end of the night, guests were given copies of a Compact Disk titled, in Chinese, Double Happiness, containing a composition written by Mr. WONG with piano selections played by Ms. LEE.
Ms. LEE, 29, says marrying Mr. WONG was, fittingly, a family affair. "He and my mom chat regularly on the phone, and she calls him about her day. I love his parents. We go out together every weekend."

Accident not able to crash wedding
By Jamie NGO, Sun Media, Sat., August 4, 2007
Toronto -- Jennifer BELL's dreams of a perfect traditional wedding came crashing down in a nightmarish motorcycle accident on Friday the 13th.
The 36-year-old and her fiance Kevin WOOD, 37, of Brampton, were on the way to a rehearsal for their Haliburton wedding that was set last month for the next day, July 15.
Kevin glanced in his rear-view mirror to see his fiance losing control of her bike and sliding across the shoulder.
"All I got was a glimpse of the chrome glistening in the sun as it rolled," he said yesterday.
She ended up with torn muscles and tendons in her leg and multiple breaks in her arm that may be paralysed for life. But the couple was still determined to get married.
And they did, yesterday in an informal outdoor ceremony at the health-care facility where Jennifer is receiving treatment.
In a wheelchair with her arm in a sling, Jennifer came down the aisle as Kevin waited under a gazebo decorated with lace and flowers. The groom also chose less-traditional wedding apparel -- a Hawaiian shirt and black cotton shorts.
As Kevin knelt down on his knee to place the ring on her finger, he shouted, "It's about time" and Jennifer shouted, "It's done!"
Medical staff blew bubbles instead of throwing rice.
"I didn't care if it was bedside, I wanted to be married to Kevin," Jennifer said. "This is all I ever wanted."
Despite the accident she hopes to ride a motorcycle again.
"I have no doubt that if we can make it happen, I'll get back on a bike," she said.

Jan WOODEND and Ken VINCENT -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, September 24, 2005, Page M4
Ottawa resident Janice Norma WOODEND, a contented single parent of four for almost a decade, was secure in her family-law practice. Yet, in the spring of 2003, nostalgia had her logging on to Classmates.com to explore the possibility that alumni from her Etobicoke Collegiate Institute graduation class had organized a 25th reunion. Also, curiosity about a former sweetheart and aspiring artist, Kenneth David VINCENT, tugged at her memories as she scanned for his name.
"I visited my parents' home regularly and I thought maybe I'll see Ken's name in the newspaper in a show at some gallery," Ms. WOODEND recalls of her Toronto visits. "But I was unaware that he had not stayed in that field."
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Mr. VINCENT had married a fellow artist, and decided to pursue a new career with the realization that two starving artists couldn't live more cheaply than one. He attended George Brown and Fanshawe Colleges respectively, and went on to become a technologist in the physics department at the University of Toronto.
By the time he posted a personal profile on Classmates.com, he was divorced.
Gingerly, Ms. WOODEND made a move and e-mailed Mr. VINCENT. His warp-speed response was the portent of long dormant feelings.
"It's a bit scary because you're thinking, 'Is this the real thing, or am I just reliving some fantasy from the past? ' So you have to spend some time straightening that out in your mind," Ms. WOODEND says.
But all the while her heart was aflutter. "I don't think I got any work done for the next three weeks," she adds. "Every time that e-mail thing would beep, I'd rush to see if it was from him."
She was planning to visit her mother in Toronto for Easter, so when Mr. VINCENT responded, the two arranged to meet. "I remember thinking at the time, 'What if he still likes me, and then, oh no, what if he doesn't?' " she recollects. "We got together for coffee, he smiled at me and the whole rest of the room disappeared."
"Your mind is racing back to all those old memories and you're almost in a dream," Mr. VINCENT recalls. "Jan was very smart, knew her own mind, and different from any other girl I knew in high school." Back in the 1970s, he says, "I hardly understood the female species, and could never actually figure out if we were a steady couple."
As romance deepened, they managed to get together almost every second weekend. "But the long distance was problematic," Ms. WOODEND says, and they pondered where and how they could possibly merge their families and lives.
That contemplation was cut short, however, by the remarkable surprise that the couple became expectant parents on a Paris vacation in the spring of 2004.
This prompted a family conference. "We had all the kids together at my place in Ottawa in July," Ms. WOODEND says. "We wanted to tell everyone about it at the same time. Needless to say, dinner didn't get eaten we were all so excited."
After some deliberation, the couple decided to live in Toronto, where Mr. VINCENT worked and Ms. WOODEND had strong family ties. Her legal skills were portable and, as a full-time mother, she would have the opportunity to focus on their new child. "I like a balance between work and family life," she notes. The following month, they started house hunting. One home was priced beyond their budget, but, Ms. WOODEND says, "we went in, looked at each other and said we have to live here." She is positive their decision was destined. Her grandfather had built the subdivision in the Bloor West Village area: The street was named after her aunt and uncle, and another, two blocks away, was named after her mother.
Living arrangements for the family, which now includes little Ethan, who was born on February 16 this year, were a logistical challenge. Mr. VINCENT's daughter Emma, from his first marriage, alternates weeks with her mother. Ms. WOODEND's eldest daughter, Jennifer, attends the University of Guelph and is happy that she can now see her mother more frequently. Eric, in Grade 12, packed his bags for Toronto. But his younger sisters, Julie, and Sarah, dedicated to dance classes and Friends, opted to remain with their father in Ottawa. (They come to Toronto by train on convenient weekends and spend summers with their mother.)
Clearly, though, the children connect in a concrete way at Ms. WOODEND's family cottage in Wasaga Beach where she summered when she was young. On the dining-room wall, striated markings of annual growth spurts now include notches for Emma and baby Ethan. Of course, the couple bonded in an even more meaningful way on July 2, when they were married at Windermere United Church, the site of the bride's baptism, before an intimate group of 30. The couple's daughters were in dreamy "floaty chiffon" dresses each had chosen from Queen Street's cheeky Misdemeanors. Eric escorted his mother to the altar where the Reverend Kate YOUNG officiated. Then, the youthful entourage paraded in their finery through Bloor West Village to a garden reception at the newlyweds' home.
In 2028, when their class holds its 50th reunion and people ask the inevitable question, "Whatever happened to...? the VINCENTs will need a little time to explain their story.

WOODWARD m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-06 published
Jillian WIEBE and Todd AMBACHTSHEER -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M5
Five years ago, Yael WOODWARD planned a barbecue, hoping that it would ignite a romance between her Friends Jillian WIEBE and Todd AMBACHTSHEER, who were until then only fleetingly acquainted. Unwilling to be undone by high-rise fire regulations, a resourceful Mrs. WOODWARD dragged home "a contraption that looked like a giant garbage can" and smoked a turkey all day in honour of the occasion.
After teaching English in Japan for a year, Ms. WIEBE had returned to Canada at loose ends, and that July, 2001, she was apartment hunting in Toronto. Mr. AMBACHTSHEER, a vegetarian and seemingly her antithesis, had nonetheless, by the end of the evening, sparked her interest -- which she subtly conveyed to her hostess. "Yael whooped for joy, did a little dance and said that was her goal."
After their official one-year anniversary of dating went unheeded by Mr. AMBACHTSHEER, Ms. WIEBE wondered if "he wasn't into me as much as I was into him." So her spirits soared that November, when he requested she pack a bag, then whisked her off to New York.
Tickets to Romeo and Juliet, a later gesture, also thrilled Ms. WIEBE, who had been a dancer for 14 years. The surprise bore additional fruit when Mr. AMBACHTSHEER developed a passion for ballet as a result.
The turnabout wasn't as successful when she joined a group of his Friends in Killarney Provincial Park for her first -- and so far, only -- camping experience. "I'd never canoed to camp and we were on our own, canoeing into the wind," Mr. AMBACHTSHEER recalls. "It was a bit of a baptism by fire." His admiration for his girlfriend, who never complained despite non-stop pelting rain, increased still more.
A 1999 graduate in film studies from the University of Western Ontario, Ms. WIEBE soon realized that work in her chosen field, though a labour of love, often resulted in poverty. Currently, she is a patient-care co-ordinator at the Institute of Cosmetic Surgery. With an added diploma in makeup art, however, she remains connected to her academic background, freelancing for stage and cinema.
A refreshing change from "neurotic, artsy" suitors Ms. WIEBE had previously encountered, Mr. AMBACHTSHEER made her feel "safe and secure." But for the honours B.A. graduate of the University of Western Ontario's Richard Ivey School of Business, who is presently a manager of transaction advisory services for Ernst and Young, a definitive commitment wasn't immediately on his balance sheet.
In September, 2004, a European holiday made Ms. WIEBE optimistic. "Every day that passed, momentous things happened. We were on top of the Eiffel Tower, and I thought -- now!" Nuptials unmentioned, the trip ended, and so she embraced the adage "expect nothing and you won't be disappointed." But by New Year's, when three other couples they knew had all announced their engagements, she drew the line.
"I rehearsed a calm, succinct speech," she recalls, and two days later she asked him about his intentions, including a request for a time frame. Little did she know that his cryptic "within the year" response was tied to another surprise he was working on.
Inadvertently, she set the scene by suggesting a Centre Island picnic, and as they basked on the grass, a sunny April 16 became memorable. "I want to look at you -- you make me very happy," said Mr. AMBACHTSHEER, who is now 31. Sensing an unfamiliar tone in his voice, she stared as he proffered a ring. Giddy with happiness, the two then tore off to play Frisbee.
A year later, on April 15, 2006, at the University of Toronto's Victoria College chapel, the two exchanged their vows before Rev. Tina GABRIEL and received guests at Biagio Ristorante.
"Todd and I are different, and we love debates, but we agree on all the things that matter," says Mrs. AMBACHTSHEER, 30.
