The couple wed during a ceremony on Lido Beach, with only their closest family in attendance, according to Poffo’s new publicist. Poffo and Payne, who is originally from South Pittsburg, TN, met in Sarasota in 1974. At the time, Poffo was playing minor league baseball for the Tampa Tarpons and Payne was attending school at the Ringling School of Art and Design. They dated for two years before parting ways. After a near three-decade separation, the couple reunited in 2001. “Thirty-six years ago, Lynn and I met on Lido Beach,” said Poffo. “I feel so fortunate that I had a second chance to marry my first love, here where it all began.”
