TBT: The Greatest Southern New England Wedding of All Time?

There really isn’t a more iconic couple than Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy is there? They had style and grace, and they appreciated the laid back charm of New England, preferring to spend their down time on the shores of Newport and Cape Cod.

In honor of their upcoming wedding anniversary (they were married on September 12th, 1953) we thought we’d honor this legendary New England couple, who were married at St. Mary’s Church in Newport, RI, followed by a lavish reception at her family’s estate, Hammersmith Farm. Sadly, Hammersmith Farm is no longer open to the public but St. Mary’s is still one of the most recognizable landmarks in Newport, and is open most days for visits, mass and wedding ceremonies – booked years in advance, in some case! Anyone say their vows there? We’d love to see photos, so please send ’em our way! In the meantime, these snaps of the former president and first lady will have to do.
