Jackie O and John F. Kennedy Celebrity Wedding

After a year-long courtship and a three-month engagement, Jacqueline Bouvier, 24, and Sen. John F. Kennedy, 36, are wed on Sept. 12, 1953, at St. Mary’s Church in Newport, R.I.

Jackie Kennedy Onassis had a grace and style that few women are lucky enough to possess. She was always perfectly put together and had a visible appreciation for style and culture.

The Battenberg lace gown Jacqueline Bouvier wears at her 1953 wedding to Sen. John F. Kennedy was created by Ann Lowe, an African-American designer in New York City.
