‘Swipe-Right Soulmates’ Are Wed

Thu, 02/01/2024 - 01:22

Adrienne Rose Adorno and John (Jackson) Stoddard Peddy of Mount Kisco, N.Y., were married at the Church of Saint Barnabas in Irvington, N.Y., on Dec. 28. The Rev. Gareth Evans officiated, and a reception followed at the Hudson Prime Steakhouse, also in Irvington.

The bride is the daughter of Lisa Adorno of Norwalk, Conn., and the late Dennis Adorno. The groom’s parents are Sharman and Jackson Peddy of New York City and East Hampton.

The groom graduated from East Hampton High School in 2004 and went on to pursue a bachelor of arts degree in mass communication and journalism at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., graduating in 2008. He was a member of the university’s national-championship men’s tennis team in 2007. He is now a client partner at Castle Island Family Office focused on helping high-net-worth family offices and business owners.

The bride earned her B.A. in elementary education and teaching from Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I., where she was a member of the sailing team, “fostering a love for the sea that continues to shape her life,” her husband wrote. She is a preschool teacher at the Episcopal School in the City of New York.

The couple are a classic tale of “swipe right for soulmates,” Mr. Peddy wrote. “The modern world of app-based dating worked its magic for Adrienne and Jackson, bringing them together on the popular platform Hinge. Fateful algorithms aligned, their profiles clicked, and, soon, sparks flew amidst the endless scroll.” They had their first date at the Penrose cocktail bar on the Upper East Side.

The bride’s maid of honor was her sister, Jessica Adorno of Warwick, R.I. She was also attended by her longtime friend Alex Bonura of Mount Kisco. Mr. Peddy’s best man was Mark Bell of Rye Brook, N.Y. Also attending him was his younger sister, Sarina Peddy, and his longtime friend Michael Kendall.

The couple will honeymoon in Scotland and southern Italy sometime later this year, traveling by plane and train.
