Some say Charmaine and Kelvin are childhood sweethearts while others say they like are an old married couple. Their story began over 15 years ago when they were introduced by a friend over the Christmas holiday. After a rigorous 3 month pursuit, Charmaine and Kelvin dated for a brief period when they were just 16. They say love always has a way of finding each other …. and they did again during university when the have each grown as individuals but also still shared the spark for each other. We won’t say it was love at first sight, but definitely a love and respect that grows stronger each day. When they were around 21, they were both at a large party at the Toronto Science Center. Charmaine was with her ex-boyfriend at the time and Kelvin was with other friends. During the party, they took off together and went exploring the Science Center. It was sort of a …… “think there is something special still here” kind of night. Needless to say, they got back together shortly after that – so it’s no wonder they decided to have an Ontario Science Center Wedding! It was an awesome wedding day indeed!
(P.S. – I’m planning a secret kidnapping of “Waffle” sometime in the middle of the night when know one is around)
“Our wedding was amazing. I’d like to take credit for it, but in reality it was almost all Charmaine. From designing the centre pieces to arranging the tables, she had her hands in almost everything. If you’ve ever had the.. I don’t think ‘privilege’ is the right word… ‘opportunity’ of working with Charmaine, you know she strives for nothing less than perfection. Her half of the speech was probably written on paper made of unicorn horns and fairy dust. Mine? I wrote it on a McDonalds napkin I found under the front seat of the car. But it’s that constant strive for perfection that has been her greatest gift to me. She’s taught me to want better, to be better, to want to be better. Truth be told, if it was not for her I would probably be sitting in my underwear playing video games instead of being where I am right now. But instead I’ll have to wait until tomorrow night for that. It’s funny, she was the one always striving for perfection, but I was the one that ended up with it. Charmaine, thank you for loving me. Thank you for letting me love you.”
“Perhaps no words can describe what I love about Kelvin but the truth is I love Kelvin simply because he is Kelvin. He is the only person that knows how to put a smile on my face no matter how sad I feel. He is the only person that can make me burst out in laughter with his hilarious jokes and antics. He is the only person that knows me inside and out while loving me unconditionally, truthfully and deeply. There is not a single day that he seizes to amaze me with his kindness and pureness of his heart. Kelvin and I have been through so many hardships and learned the meaning of forgiveness and love. I feel that if we could get past what we have been through, there is nothing in this world we can’t conquer together. From the moment I met Kelvin, I told him that I could imagine spending the rest of my life. I feel like I am the luckiest girl in the world to have someone like him by my side.”
