Emerging from the chapel into a torrential downpour, a sign of good luck in Greek folklore, the wedding party made their way to the "Christina," Onassis' personal yacht for an all-night reception.Both the Onassis children objected to their father's marriage.The couple divided their time between New York, Athens, Paris, Montevideo, Monte Carlo and the Greek islands.
