The eight-year transcontinental romance between London-based school principal Michael O'Grady and RJR Communications Group director of communications and multimedia Yvonne Wilks had its happy ending on Saturday, August 9 when the lovebirds tied the knot in a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Webster Memorial United Church.
Pre-wedding jitters were nowhere in sight as Yvonne Wilks
patiently sat in air-conditioned comfort in the backseat of the Toyota SUV in the parking lot of the Webster Memorial United Church
, minutes away from marrying her fiancé Michael O'Grady.
Awaiting the end of an in-progress wedding, the contingent for the O'Grady/Wilks nuptials was a stylishly-attired mix of Rock-based friends drawn from Wilks'
media and social circles, as well as London-resident family members who jetted in to support both the bride and the groom.
There was, too, Yvonne's tight-knit sisterhood of gal pals who flew in from Toronto, Atlanta, Florida and Philadelphia to see her
fairy-tale walk up the aisle.
