TAM m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-01-15 published
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."

THURSTON m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-05-14 published
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."
