Peter Larkin and Joey Patino

Peter Larkin (left) and Joey Patino exchanged vows at 801 Chophouse during an “intimate surprise ceremony among our parents and our small bridal party on a Tuesday evening in October,” Joey says. The pandemic had scuttled their plans to marry in Croatia, but their wedding day nonetheless was “absolutely beautiful and perfect,” he adds. “We felt grateful to have been able to bring a little joy to everyone closest to us.”
