Jessica Karie RUYGROK and Daniel Donald John DIFLORIO -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, November 26, 2005, Page M5
Although Jessica RUYGROK and Daniel DIFLORIO had once played together as two-year-olds at a Christmas party, they seemed destined for close encounters and detached lives.
In their early teens, while they were at different high schools, she trained on the running track that circled the field where he played baseball. "I always noticed the catcher and he always noticed who was running in the red top," she says. But those encounters never went beyond furtive glances.
Two years later, they again came tantalizingly close at a Halloween party, but their costumes kept them from recognizing each other. Finally, a mutual friend introduced them in October, 1999, when Ms. RUYGROK was in her last year of high school and Mr. DIFLORIO had started to study engineering at George Brown College.
"There was a mystery to him, and I wanted to get to know him better," she says.
"We developed a strong Friendship, played pool, and I could talk to her like one of the guys," Mr. DIFLORIO says.
Intrigued, yet slightly taken aback by her sharp tongue and quick wit, he pretended indifference.
On Valentine's Day, 2000, he offered a tepid card: "Be my Valentine, be my friend." But a couple of days later she stopped by his house to watch a movie. Suddenly, they kissed.
The reluctant romantics' feelings would manifest a few weeks later. On a trip to Mexico with her graduating class, Ms. RUYGROK remembers, "I just felt empty, wishing he was here." Mr. DIFLORIO, meanwhile, admits that he "moped around and did absolutely nothing."
On her return, they saw each other daily. Then she left for a massage therapy program at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough and stayed there over two summers.
The long-distance relationship endured, however. "I believe it was a test for us," Ms. RUYGROK says. "The separation gave us a chance to be more independent, and kept things in a nice balance."
The athletic couple fence, play badminton and hockey, and when she returned to Toronto, they volunteered for the same team -- he on the ice as a coach, she on the bench as a trainer.
Ms. RUYGROK, who works at the Optimum Health Clinic in Mississauga, had always wanted to have her own home before marriage. In January, she was out of town at a hockey tournament when Mr. DIFLORIO, now a mechanical designer, called to say their offer on a handyman special had been accepted. He felt it was time the co-owners extended their partnership. "Driving from work, it just popped into my head," he says. "I had the next day off, and went out and bought a ring."
On February 11, as the couple skate-skied at Hardwood Hills, the more experienced Ms. RUYGROK set a brisk pace. She paused for Mr. DIFLORIO. "He took his gloves off. I was impatient, saying, 'You don't have to take [them] off to have a drink.' Then he started saying nice things to me, but I wasn't paying much attention," she says with a laugh. Then she froze as Mr. DIFLORIO brandished a diamond.
On Friday, August 26, at the Glenerin Inn, the bride entered to the subtle strains of a Spanish guitar. Her gown of ivory French silk, accented with antique lace, was a gift from her aunt, Ottawa designer Janine ADAMYK. On a canopied deck with a forested ravine as backdrop, 90 guests watched as Dr. Antoine AOUAD wed the couple. "[It was] very Jessica, very rustic," maid of honour Conor SNELSON says. "They are young -- both 24 -- [and] have careers and a home, whereas most people our age aren't there yet. They really knew what they wanted and went after it."

Marnie SUGARMAN and Stephen ADLER -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, January 22, 2005 - Page M6
If Stephen ADLER chronicles his memoirs, the results will leave the uninitiated bedazzled. In first-year university, with the bravura of a 19-year-old, he wrote to Dennis Swanson, president of ABC Sports: "You gave Oprah her first job, now give me mine." And he scored. For the next three summers, he worked as an intern in sportscasting for the major U.S. networks. The bold feat even led to an interview with Oprah Winfrey herself.
So it's not surprising the story of his engagement to Marnie SUGARMAN features more of the same bold strategizing.
Ms. SUGARMAN, a former camp counsellor, got together with Mr. ADLER after bumping into his sister, Pamela ADLER, a one-time charge of hers, on Bloor Street. "My brother looks pretty good these days," Ms. ADLER told Ms. SUGARMAN.
Ms. SUGARMAN handed over her number, and shortly after that encounter in November of 2001, she and Mr. ADLER met.
"She was stunningly beautiful, and I had her on the first date when I casually said I had been on Oprah, and then changed the topic," says the University of Ottawa graduate, who is now a fundraiser at Reena, a Toronto agency that works with the developmentally disabled.
Ms. SUGARMAN, who holds a master's degree in journalism, enthuses about their common interests. "At the time, I was an associate producer for W-Five and he didn't ask me to explain. It was brilliant." Later, she told her mother, "I think I met my match, someone who talks as much as I do."
Further, both embraced the value of family. Their visit to his grandparents in Montreal profoundly affected her. "He respected them and they loved him, yet were Friends. It was pivotal -- I had always wanted someone who respected family the way I did," she says.
By the summer of 2003, Mr. ADLER was envisioning the extraordinary: "To give her the biggest and best proposal story anyone can have." But because of her close relationship with Friends and family, he knew Ms. SUGARMAN would want to be with them when she got engaged.
He concocted a bifurcated approach. In a parody of the phantom character George Kaplan in Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest, Mr. ADLER created a fictitious client whom he described as a flamboyant bon vivant. Then, he arranged an appointment at the Windsor Arms hotel, where the couple headed after a Peter Gabriel concert in July, 2003. "Even his parents were in on it, saying he [the supposed client] sounded fabulous," Ms. SUGARMAN notes. "And I bought into every ounce of the story."
When they arrived, they received a message that the client was delayed but that they were invited to his suite, where flowers and delicacies awaited. Suddenly, when Ms. SUGARMAN noticed the stuffed bears that were reminiscent of Mr. ADLER's first gift to her, the jig was up. "She almost started to convulse, smiling and wailing in combination as I got down on one knee and proposed," Mr. ADLER says. He then ushered her to the downstairs bar, where family and Friends toasted the engaged pair.
Two weeks later, the spectacular finale was set. Mr. ADLER persuaded her boss to commandeer a reluctant Ms. SUGARMAN, now a television producer for Red Apple Entertainment, who was in the midst of a long-awaited interview. "My boss wouldn't even let me go to the bathroom," she says. "We ran, ran, ran, out. Stephen put his foot on the pedal, and we were off."
Timing was crucial because of distance, a border to cross, and an intractable schedule dependent on the weather. Mr. ADLER gave her a series of envelopes to open in sequence, each with driving directions that collectively led to their final destination, without revealing it.
Mr. ADLER fuelled the drama by insisting that she relinquish her ring. "The place we're going you can't be engaged or married," he explained.
A six-hour push found them in Akron, Ohio, at sunset, on the tarmac for the Goodyear blimp. "Oh my God, you're going to ask me to marry you again," Ms. SUGARMAN guessed. "I'm going to laugh!"
"I don't care what you do," Mr. ADLER whispered, "but they think this is our engagement and you'd better cry." As the blimp ascended, he handed her a love note, tears gushed on cue, and the flight crew applauded.
An engagement on the blimp was as likely as a seat on Apollo, yet undeterred, Mr. ADLER had e-blitzed for months every potential source to plead his case, while saving every correspondence for Ms. SUGARMAN, an avid scrapbooker. Finally, an empathetic ear at Goodyear agreed to help.
On October 10 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre, Rabbi Erwin SCHIELDS wed the couple, then both 27. The bride's 92-year-old grandmother, whose 65th anniversary was that very day, attended the ceremony. Their odyssey would continue on a honeymoon planned by Ms. SUGARMAN to the Seychelles Islands, Zanzibar and Madagascar.
