Gay men moved to marry
Special to The Free Press
Toronto -- It was not a boyhood dream to be bathed in confetti after tying the knot, but a grown-up reality that led Toronto councillor Kyle RAE to wed his decade-long partner yesterday. The pair decided to get married after watching another gay couple get their licence on television.
"He said, 'I don't want people to think I died an old single man. I've been in a loving relationship for years. I want a record of that wonderful relationship.' That just moved both of us," RAE said after his short ceremony.
He and artist Mark REID had tears in their eyes when they were pronounced married by Ontario Court Justice Bruce YOUNG at a gallery in the heart of the gay village where REID has had his paintings exhibited.
The couple, who have been together since "the first night we met" nine years ago, never put much emphasis on marriage.
"I thought marriage was something that never happened to gay people and anyway -- who cares?" said REID.
"But as it got close I became excited."

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.

Ashley Ann THAKE and Jeffrey Douglas WILSON -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M6
If proposing marriage is akin to traversing a portal, Jeffrey WILSON had his choice of 7,503 draped gates when it came time to kneel before a stunned Ashley THAKE at the Christo and Jeanne-Claude exhibit, The Gates, in New York City's Central Park.
"I didn't think engagement, whatsoever. I was in absolute shock," Ms. THAKE recalls of the magical moment. "It was an exhibit we really wanted to see. Spectacular, in the dead of winter -- the trees bare, snow on the ground and a sea of saffron [fabric] moving with the wind through the gates.
"Apart from the wedding, it was the best day of my life!"
In February, 2005, with conspiratorial help from his fiancée's employer, Mr. WILSON whisked Ms. THAKE to New York for the weekend.
"I went through an unending series of metal detectors, from the airport to the top of the Empire State Building," recalls Mr. WILSON, who was sure he was going to be called upon at any moment to pull out the ring he had tucked away in his pocket. Rejecting the ubiquitous proposal site on the observation deck of the Empire State, he was drawn to the dazzling exhibit in Central Park.
Fortuitously, parents of a friend were in New York a short while later, when the exhibit was dismantled. As a result, explains Ms. THAKE, they have a framed scrap of the saffron material displayed on their mantelpiece, "and we get to reminisce all the time.
"Saffron is now my favourite colour, New York my favourite city in the world, and it will still be our romantic rendezvous when we are 89 years old," she says.
The couple's odyssey began in 2000, when Mr. WILSON, who is now 30, saw a photo Christmas card that Ms. THAKE, a graduate of the University of Western Ontario and an account executive at the Discovery Channel/CTV, had sent to his roommate.
"That was my first time meeting her -- without meeting her," he recalls.
Even though their circles frequently intersected, however, it would take another year before they connected at a friend's party. A few days later, they were sipping martinis in Little Italy and comparing notes on what they had in common.
For Ms. THAKE and Mr. WILSON, family was the linchpin. Both halves of the couple had parents who had been married for nearly four decades, were youthful, fun-loving and slightly off-centre. "It was uncanny," Ms. THAKE, now 34, remarks.
Her parents fired the first welcoming salvo, inviting the elder WILSONs to the "First Annual Fossil Fest, so us old folks could meet and get to know one another."
"They were like four peas in a pod," Ms. THAKE says of the prospective in-laws. "They now get together without us and have dinner dates."
The College Street couple cycle about Toronto, enjoying its amenities. She is tentative about inconsiderate drivers; he is a " a road racer" and often bikes the 150 kilometres to her old cottage in the village of Sturgeon Point.
It was there, as they lay snuggled in a hammock facing the lake, that the pair first realized they were destined to be life partners. But for Mr. WILSON, a Trent University graduate who is a project co-ordinator for CitiCapital, it would take three-plus years, waiting while "the stars finally aligned," in order to launch his Manhattan project.
Grandeur and proximity made Hart House, at the University of Toronto, the choice for the January 21, 2006, nuptials, at which Justice of the Peace Tony YOUNG officiated. One hundred and eighty guests gathered around the Great Hall's massive fireplace to savour hors d'oeuvre and take to the dance floor at a cocktail reception that followed the vows. "It was phenomenal," exclaims Ms. THAKE, who will now be known as Mrs. WILSON.
At the Park Hyatt on their wedding night, a photo of their four parents loomed at close range -- placed on the bedside table by the concierge. "Keeping an eye on things," the bride's father, Richard THAKE, says, laughing.
"So on their wedding night, there we all were, the THAKEs and the WILSONs, starting off together."

Shelagh Melinda GUSTAVISON and Christopher Patrick CUMMINS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M5
Despite her love for Christopher CUMMINS, after four years of dating, Shelagh GUSTAVISON felt stranded in never-never land. "Shelagh sat me down at dinner and gave me some pretty stern words, upset the commitment hadn't come," Mr. CUMMINS remembers.
Ironically, their friend Nicole YOUNG had endorsed his choice of a diamond only three hours earlier. His somewhat audacious feint to Ms. GUSTAVISON was, "It's not going to happen in the next three days -- or on our upcoming vacation." Thus without a zephyr of hope, and flaunting the fact she could paddle her own canoe, she set out in mid-August, 2005 -- sans Mr. CUMMINS and flanked by girlfriends -- for five days on the Chiniguchi Waterway near Sudbury.
Meanwhile, Mr. CUMMINS had a plan. Which included chartering a float plane and enlisting one conspiratorial girlfriend -- to identify the paddlers' location. Sadly, those plans threatened to unravel when the pilot of the float plane, a Peterborough friend, became skittish. Unflappable, Mr. CUMMINS pressed on. He recalls that he spoke "with most helicopter and float-plane companies and aviators in Northern Ontario," before being referred to a gentleman known as J.R., who was stirred by the romantic pleadings and agreed to fly Mr. CUMMINS.
With blessings, and a gift of champagne, from Ms. GUSTAVISON's parents, Mr. CUMMINS headed north, arriving in Sudbury at 3 a.m. to find every hotel room booked. Sleepless and stuck in his car, he recalls e-mailing Friends from his BlackBerry with the champagne chilling in the back seat. Then at 7: 01 a.m. he dashed into the local Starbucks, ordered lattés extra hot, changed his shirt in the washroom, floored it to J.R.'s and they took off.
On the women Friends' fifth day out, concerned after the waving of a fellow tripper had a plane tipping its wings and landing, Ms. GUSTAVISON paddled at Olympic speed to shore -- assuming the pilot had misinterpreted the enthusiastic wave as an S.O.S. There, she was startled when Mr. CUMMINS emerged from the cabin and quipped, "Good morning, I brought you coffee."
Immediately after which he became unglued. "Tongue-tied, laboured breathing, stressed," he says, recalling how he felt. "Shelagh thought, 'Chris is nuts -- this is something he might do.' " However, he adds, she wasn't thinking along engagement lines.
When she took off with the pilot for an aerial spin, Mr. CUMMINS readied champagne and clued in the Friends, who hid with cameras. Then, as Ms. GUSTAVISON deplaned, he grasped her hand: "Was that flight an adventure?" he asked. He followed that with the question, "Would you like to go on more adventures with me?" Then he knelt and offered the ring.
Ms. GUSTAVISON, now a Branksome Hall teacher, and Mr. CUMMINS, an executive recruiter at Brock Placement Group, first clicked in March, 2001, when she returned from a teaching stint in New Zealand. But their romance seemed likely to be sidelined until his job offer with a medical products company in the United Arab Emirates disappeared. "We knew in the fall that we were not going to be separated, and [then] the relationship sky rocketed," she says, beaming.
At Rosedale United Church, on March 11, Rev. Doug NORRIS wed the pair. The reception venue, the same as it had been for the bride's parents, and grandparents' 50th anniversary, was the Granite Club.
The new Mrs. CUMMINS, 33, also serves on the advisory board of Hilde Back Education Fund. Mr. CUMMINS, 32, who volunteers as a community educator for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, says: "I am a sales guy. We go until we can't go any more!"
