Meghan Jean Salveson and Anthony J.P. Patino were married on Aug. 30, 2008, at St. Ignatius Chapel at Seattle University.
The bride is the daughter of Dennis and Sue Salveson, of Juneau. She graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 2002 and from Seattle University in 2006.
The groom, from San Antonio, Texas, is the son of Tony and Dee Patino. He graduated from the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2007.
The two met seven years ago in Juneau at a retreat sponsored by St. Paul's Parish. They were excited to come together after four years of long-distance dating.
Annie (Fox) Albrecht and Hilary Young, of Juneau, were bridesmaids. Meghan and JP would like to thank the many Juneauites who traveled to Seattle to help celebrate their marriage. They now live in Belleville, Ill., where Meghan is earning a Masters in Social Work at St. Louis University and JP is an officer in the U.S. Air Force at Scott Air Force Base.
