Kennedy Weddings: A Family Album
Author: Jay Mulvaney, Doris Kearns Goodwin
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Release Date: October 29, 1999
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.
