Jacqueline Bouvier came to Newport when her mother married Hugh Auchincloss in 1942. Jackie married John F. Kennedy in a most iconic Newport celebration. This book will explore the less-told anecdotes like the gown debacle that could have ruined the Kennedy nuptials. Newport hosted the Kennedy's happiest times, and the town holds dear memories of this American queen. The tradition of tossing the bridal bouquet from the central stairs of Hammersmith Farm started with Jackie and continued long after. Jackie and her family spent summers here even while the White House was their main address.
