Today marks the 56th wedding anniversary of John F. Kennedy and Jaqueline Bouvier. The golden couple were married on September 12, 1953 at St. Mary’s Church in Newport, Rhode Island.
In honor of their special day, LIFE Magazine has released never before seen photos of the couple at their wedding and during their ten years together.
Pictured are John and Jackie arriving to their reception at Hammersmith Ballroom and being greeted by 1200 guests. Jackie wore an ivory silk taffeta gown by Ann Lowe and her grandmother’s rose point veil.
