Korinne and Peter Tamburello

By  0 Comments

Tied the Knot: September 4, 2021

Korinne (Martin) Tamburello grew up in Clearwater, Florida, attended Palm Harbor University High School and graduated with her undergraduate degree in information technology from Seminole State College of Florida. She enjoys creative arts such as costuming and prop-making, and music, concerts, camping and nature.

Peter “PJ” Tamburello grew up in the Northland of Kansas City, Missouri, graduating from Staley High School, received his BA from Barry University in Miami, Florida, and his JD from Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida, before returning to the Midwest to practice law with Anderson & Associates in Westport. PJ enjoys a love of music, concerts and guitars, wildlife and outdoors and especially home-brewing and distilling his own delicious concoctions.

“We matched on the dating app Bumble and spent a month and a half texting, trying to make our schedules line up for a real first date,” PJ relates. “When we were finally able to meet, we met a bunch of Korinne’s friends at an Orlando brewery for trivia night. We have been together ever since!”

When Korinne agreed to migrate to the Midwest, the couple began looking for a small home on acreage and settled on a 25-acre farm in Plattsburg, Missouri, that they quickly filled with love, cats, dogs and a horse! That’s where PJ proposed. “We spent the day exploring Kansas City, walking through the River Market, eating at local gems, then finally returned to our farm where we walked along the edge of our pond with our dogs and I asked her to marry me,” he smiles. They enjoy nurturing the property with hopes of it becoming self-sustaining in the future.

Wedding weekend festivities were held at the farm, beginning with rehearsal followed by an Italian dinner at LaDoga Ridge Winery in Smithville, Missouri, with local wine and entertainment by family friend/entertainer Rudy Amato.

The blissful couple tied the knot September 4, 2021, attended by a large group of close friends and family. Janiz Crespo served as Maid of Honor; Frankie Tamburello was Best Man. The bride walked down the aisle with her father, Peter Martin, and her stepfather, Steve Allen. A private ceremony followed, officiated by friend of the couple, Fr. Joe Pierjok; 150 guests joined the celebration at sunset for a whole smoked pig dinner prepared by the groom’s father. A traditional Italian cookie buffet prepared by the couple’s aunts, cousins and friends featured all the Italian cookie classics. The bride’s new mother-in-law made her signature carrot cake covered in walnuts as the wedding cake, and exclusive cocktails were made with Von Payne Black Currant Whiskey made and bottled by the stepfather of the bride. Family and friends came from all over the country to celebrate; some guests camped on the farm and enjoyed a weekend of outdoor fun. The evening continued with dancing under the stars and wrapped up on Sunday with a fried chicken picnic lunch hosted by the groom’s aunt and uncle.

Since PJ is beginning his career in law, the couple has postponed a honeymoon.
