'We met in Toronto while Erns was on a 3 month work secondment from South Africa. We met, fell in love, and he left 3 months later.
After Erns went back to South Africa, we kept in touch constantly, even though we didn't think anything would come from it. About 6 months later, we decided enough was enough, and met halfway in London. We think of this as our first date. We met in the hotel lobby, and it was like we had never been apart. We went for lunch right away at a cute Italian bistro. We talked like old friends.'
These old friends got married on a warm and beautiful summer day last season. Marija and Erns celebrated at Chateau Des Charmes but before their reception they had a 'first look at Centennial Park in Stoney Creek and were then married at their local Serbian Church.
