Overview

From Joe and Rose's private wedding in the Archbishop of Boston's personal chapel, full circle to John and Carolyn's secret nuptials in a former slave chapel on a secluded island, Kennedy Weddings takes you to each event, with photographs, anecdotes, memories and souvenirs.

For three generations the Kennedy family has been in the public eye, and for three generations their marriages have been the equivalent of "Royal Matches." This book covers the senior generation wedding of Joe and Rose, the second generation weddings—most notably of Jack and Jackie, Bobby and Ethel—and all of the third generation weddings: John Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, Caroline and Ed Schlossberg, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kerry and Andrew Cuomo, Kathleen and Peter Townsend, Courtney and Paul Hill, Michael and Victoria Gifford.

The accompanying images, acquired from members of the Kennedy family, private collections of friends, and the JFK Library and National Archives, are as rare as they are unusual—many have never been published, or were published only at the time of the wedding. Kennedy Weddings is the result of years of extensive research and has benefited from the unprecedented cooperation of many members of the Kennedy family, most especially of Senator Edward Kennedy's office.

    WOW

    What a wonderful book. I was captivated right from the start. It is so pleasant to read such a positive and informative view of such a great family. So many rare photos that I have NEVER seen before. I am a history buff and this book gave such an exquisite insight into one of America¿s greatest families. If you like history, this book is an absolute must for your collection. Hat¿s off to the author, it is apparent that a lot of hard work and research went into this fabulous publication.

    A TOUCHING LOVE STORY DESPITE ADVERSITIES

    I am always captivated when I read about the Kennedy family. Just reading and going through the book and pictures just leaves me in perpetual awe. This family represents stoicism in rare form in the midst of life's adversities yet such tenderness and love evaporates from the wedding pictures displayed in the book. They truly do represent LOVE, STRENGTH, TENACITY!!

    Elegantly packaged, beautifully written -- a must have for Christmas!

    Every once in a while it's so rewarding to read something positive for a change! This book has everything: many photos that have never been seen before, the kind of information that only comes from real, first hand research and interviews, and a exquisitely realized physical package that makes this a perfect gift item at an unusually low price. This book is for the history buff as much as it is for the reader of celebrity biographies. While it is full of facts about one of America's most famous families, the writing has a warm, intimate feel. You turn the last page feeling inspired and uplifted. An A+!
