Trieste Lynn Signorino and Patrick Adams Bowe met in high school; and even then, Trieste knew she had found the one she would spend her life with. “I realized he would support me in following my dreams, even if it meant being apart while we both went to college,” she explained. Patrick popped the question over a simple dinner at Trieste’s apartment, not realizing it was April Fool’s Day when he proposed. Luckily for both, it was not a prank.
The couple held their wedding at The Barn at the Chaumette Vineyards and Winery in Ste. Genevieve, Mo. Trieste carried her grandfather’s wedding band and great-aunt’s necklace in her bouquet. Despite a couple hiccups – Hurricane Isaac and two ripped bridesmaids dresses right before the ceremony – the couple’s celebration was the simple, elegant affair they had hoped it would be.
Family and friends enjoyed dancing the night away, with the couple during the reception at The Barn. One memorable moment for Trieste was when the DJ put on Piano Man, and their collective friends and family surrounding them began swaying and singing along in unison.
The couple honeymooned in Montego Bay, Jamaica, finding time to climb the whole length of Dunn’s River Falls between relaxing by the beach and pool. Trieste is a structural design engineer at The Boeing Company, and Patrick is a computer technician and warehouse assistant manager for Achievement House Cyber Charter School. The newlyweds reside in West Chester, Pa.
