A June wedding at the beach in San Francisco is riskier than it may sound. When that marine layer sets in, June gloom is very real. Dina and Joey were bracing for fog, but ended up with a bright clear day overlooking the Pacific.
Knowing it would be overwhelming to fit their friends and Joey's giant Irish Catholic family into one day, they embraced a scenario common in Dina's native Russia: spread the party out over three days! An intimate ceremony and dinner on a Friday afternoon kicked off a whole weekend of festivities.
Under the cypress trees with hair swirling in the wind, they had a Russian Jewish Irish Catholic ceremony overlooking Dina's grandfather's favorite spot in San Francisco. Afterward, they headed to Wayfare Tavern where the bride had a burger in her wedding dress, and shared vodka and Jamison with their closest family members!
