Remembering Caroline Kennedy's Wedding, 31 Years Later
Thirty-one years ago today, Caroline Kennedy, the only daughter of the late President Kennedy, married Edwin A. Schlossberg in an intimate Catholic ceremony on Cape Cod.
Read on for photos from the big day.
The bride's uncle Ted Kennedy walked her down the aisle.
In her father's absence, his brother stepped in to walk Caroline down the aisle of the flower-filled Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church in Centerville on Cape Cod.
The bride and her uncle had to shush the photographers before walking down the aisle.
Caroline wore a white silk organza gown with a rounded neckline and short, puffy sleeves designed by Carolina Hererra, one of her mother's favorite dressmakers, for the marriage ceremony.
The Mother of the Bride
Jackie chose a pale green outfit accessorized with long gloves for her daughter's wedding day.
Caroline had seven bridesmaids in total, a group which included several Kennedy family members including Courtney Kennedy Ruhe and Sydney Lawford McKelvy. Her cousin Maria Shriver served as her matron of honor.

The Happy Couple
Not many details are known about the marriage ceremony, as the press was kept out of the church, and according to the New York Times wedding announcement, guests were sworn to secrecy.

After the church, guests made their way to the Kennedy compound. The bride's grandmother Rose Kennedy hosted the reception, and according to the New York Times, the dinner menu included: "cold pea soup with mint, shrimp and apples, vegetable vinaigrette, roast chicken with rice, cold sirloin of beef, salad, raspberries and a four-tiered yellow wedding cake with chocolate filling and white icing. The cake was to be served with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream."
Dinner was reportedly followed by celebrations and dancing set to a soundtrack by a band called the Supreme Court.
Happy Anniversary, Caroline and Edwin!
Here's to 31 more years!
