Remembering Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - Collector's Treasure of the Day

Kennedy Original Wedding Invitation Framed Display
Today marks the birthday of Jacqueline "Jackie" Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1929- 1994). She was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and is remembered for her contributions to the arts, her efforts in historic preservation, and her status as a fashion icon. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is Jackie and JFK's original wedding invitation from 1953! The invitation reads: "Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Dudley Auchincloss request the honour of your presence at the marriage of Mrs. Auchincloss' daughter Jacqueline Lee Bouvier to the Honorable John Fitzgerald Kennedy United States Senate on Saturday, the twelfth of September at eleven o'clock/ St. Mary's Church/Spring Street/Newport, Rhode Island." Matted and framed with a photograph of the couple cutting the wedding cake to an overall size of 16.25 x 15.75 inches. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
