    Exceedingly Rare Complete Wedding Invitation Ensemble From the 1953 Kennedy - Bouvier Nuptials. Includes not only the engraved invitation, but also the admission cards or both wedding and reception, as well as the original envelope. We have checked with some leading Kennedy collectors, and none has ever seen the item in this form. It is not surprising that few, if any, others survived: the two cards would have been turned in by attendees, so the only possible complete set would have to come from someone who had been invited but did not attend, and who saved the whole group. This invitation went to a JFK intimate, William Reardon, who, it has been so rumored, was too close to the Senator not to be invited, but who did not attend or certain reasons involving personal discretion. The invitation itself is highly-prized by Kennedy collectors, but this full set presents a very special opportunity.
