Elita Ho

Maid of Honour

Doug first met Eli in Grade 2 (she was already a super-talented concert pianist by then!) and they have been good friends ever since.  Gloria met her during Pharmacy school and quickly they became friends (who else had class schedules with 4 hour breaks?).  Eli is the matchmaker who brought Doug and Gloria together.  She is a Pharmacist currently working for GlaxoSmithKline in Mississauga, ON.  In her spare time, she spends time with her significant other, Arthur, and plays volleyball regularly with blatant disregard of her multiple ankle sprains.

Katie Ma


Gloria met Katie during Pharmacy School.  She is one of the kindest and most generous people in this world.  Katie is an (insanely hard-working) Pharmacist working for Walgreen's in the Seattle area thus making her the unfortunate "Amerifriend" whom Doug and Gloria hassle incessantly!  She was even crazy enough to get Doug a co-applicant American credit card, which has been a huge help in wedding planning.  In her spare time, she enjoys cooking (you cannot buy char sui and ice cream as good as she can make) and spending time with her Veterinarian husband, Wilson, and their cat, Ally.

Justin Shah

Best Man

Doug has known Justin for 15 years five years of high school, four years of undergraduate Science, four years of medical school, two years as a resident, and since!  The dreams of playing major league baseball have long passed and 'Stin is on his way to becoming a Gastroenterologist.  When he is not working, he spends time with his wife Lisa (Doug did a bit of matchmaking during medical school). He is also an avid pilot and golfer.

Jeffrey Chan


Doug has known Jeff for 17 years.  Through the years he has been a study buddy, a lunch pal, a badminton and tennis partner, a sounding board, and an accomplice in many misadventures.  Jeff has always been reliable and helpful when called upon, and is entrusted with Master of Ceremonies duties for the reception.  He was instrumental in setting up the surprise engagement as well.  Currently, he is an Occupational Therapist at Burnaby Hospital and is simultaneously working towards a Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Science

Herbert Law


Gloria has been friends with Herbert for over 15 years.  He has always been one who is willing to listen and give his opinion, which is both valued and trusted.  No one else has such an extensive knowledge of weird and obscure stuff!  Doug and Herb played softball together for a number of years ("use the Wonderbat!"), averaging a meager one win per season.  He is currently working as an Attorney for Mathews, Dinsdale & Clark LLP in Toronto, with a special interest in labour law.  He therefore provides Doug and Gloria with free legal advice (you get what you pay for!).
