    John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy: Wedding Invitation, 1953. The wedding invitation and photograph of the newlyweds at their reception is framed to 22" x 18", September 12, 1953. On Saturday morning, September 12, 1953, 36-year-old John Fitzgerald Kennedy and 24-year-old Jacqueline Lee Bouvier were wed at Saint Mary's Church in Newport, Rhode Island. A reception was then held at Hammersmith Farm, also in Newport, the childhood home of Jacqueline. During his presidency, JFK spent enough time at Hammersmith Farm that it was referred to as the Summer White House. The invitation is framed with a photograph of John and Jacqueline in a private moment at the reception. Excellent condition.
