One Million Dollars will Go to Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy.
On September 12th, 1953, the couple chose to exchange their vows in St. Mary’s Church in Washington, which was attended by a who’s who of Washington’s political and diplomatic establishment.Jackie wore a custom-designed gown by Ann Lowe that was made of ivory silk and featured a portrait neckline and a bouffant skirt.
The dress, which was constructed out of fifty yards of cloth, was accessorized with a rose point lace heritage veil. The subsequent event was held not far away on the 300-acre property known as Hammersmith Farm, which belonged to the mother of the bride. About 400 more visitors participated in the celebrations that were taking place at that site.
