On this day in history, September 12, 1953, John F. Kennedy weds Jacqueline Bouvier in Newport, Rhode Island

John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee Bouvier were married on this day in history on Sept. 12, 1953, in St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Newport, Rhode Island, with more than 800 guests in attendance. 

The bride, presented by her stepfather, Hugh D. Auchincloss, wore a dress of ivory tissue silk, with a portrait neckline, fitted bodice and a bouffant skirt embellished with bands of more than 50 yards of flounces, according to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. 

Bourvier’s veil, worn first by her grandmother, was draped from a tiara of lace and orange blossoms and she also wore a choker of pearls and a diamond bracelet that was a gift from Kennedy. 

Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was laid to rest next to President Kennedy on May 23, 1994.
