In late July, Meghan Kennedy Townsend tied the knot in a wedding ceremony truly befitting her middle name. The granddaughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy—and daughter of David Townsend and former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend—married Billy Birdzell, a former marine, at her family's compound in Cape Cod, according to Page Six.

Not much is known about the event, but guests included several of the bride's relatives, including Rory Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Cheryl Hines. The couple, who reportedly met when Townsend was teaching a yoga class, has two children, twins Arabella and David, who served as flower girl and ring bearer during the ceremony.

Take a peek inside the wedding, which was beautifully captured by photographer Margot Schulman, below.
