Amazon.com Review

It's often said that the Kennedys are the closest thing to royalty that we Americans have, and it's true that we share an obsession with them that parallels the British obsession with their royal family. We admire their talent, good looks, and wealth, and we respect their political successes. We also feel a connection with their familial bonds, as well as compassion for this famous family haunted by persistent tragedies.

The images of the Kennedy family weddings are at once glamorous beyond imagination and everyday in their focus on family and the rituals of marriage. Jay Mulvaney has worked closely with the Kennedy family to produce a book of remarkably joyful and exuberant moments of three generations of Kennedys, beginning with the marriage of Joe and Rose, then moving to the second generation of weddings that includes John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier, Eunice Kennedy and Sargent Shriver, Robert Kennedy and Ethel Skakel, and Patricia Kennedy and Peter Lawford. A third generation of Kennedy weddings concludes the book, including the wedding of John Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Caroline Kennedy and Ed Schlossberg, and Kerry Kennedy and Andrew Cuomo.

Mulvaney writes with uncloying simplicity of the events during and surrounding each couple's wedding day, sharing quotes from guests, relatives, and the happy couples themselves. Clear, rich photos, some of them never before printed or not publicly seen since the wedding, evoke each special day. While much attention has been given to the sadder events involving the Kennedys, Kennedy Weddings: A Family Album reminds us in a single book of some of the best and brightest memories of one of America's most beloved families. --Kris Law --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Jay Mulvaney was on the TODAY show talking about this wonderful book all full of photographs from all the different Kennedy weddings...and it was so nice to finally see a happy book about the Kennedy family. The book is wonderful...it's got so many pictures, but also tells the whole story of the family and the many wonderful things they've done throughout the years. My favorite family was the Shrivers...they are so gorgeous, Maria of course, but also her brothers Anthony, Mark and Timothy. There are lots of stories and anecdotes from each of the weddings, and you get to see some honeymoon photos and pictures of wedding gifts and so many private photographs of the Kennedys. a MUST HAVE for anyone who likes the Kennedys and who likes weddings.

Format: Hardcover
Here's a book of captivating photographs and stories about the wedding celebrations and private relationships of a very public American family. I found myself remembering special moments from weddings of my own friends and family. My wife and I were young newlyweds along with Jack & Jackie. You DO remember 'where you were when...' Reading this book together was a pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Sometimes I love the Kennedys, sometimes I wish they'd all go away on an extended retreat. But I've got to admit that this book was an absolute lovefest that I couldn't put down. The fact that Mulvaney had such amazing access to their most intimate moments is astounding--I'd love to know how he did it. Great pix, lively text, and a very good-looking bunch of people. As much fun as eating a pint of ice cream at one sitting!

For me this book has been a research savior. I have a bridal fashion blog and do a regular feature on iconic weddings. What could be more iconic to Americans than our numero uno political family getting married? Now with three generations of them limelighted, you can imagine how often a Kennedy anniversary pops up on the calendar. The most celebrated of all would be JFK and Jackie's nuptials, the author sharing so much new and unique info that even ten years after the book's publication, the google search is lacking. If you're curious about other Kennedys who aren't so much in the public eye, here's your chance to get to know all about their courtships and time and place in history. For instance, I learned that JFK's sisters Pat and Jean whose 1950s weddings were a couple years apart, wore the very same gown designed by Hattie Carnagie. And did you know Jackie's gown and wedding style were not the type she partcularly wanted? To find out more tidbits though you need to sit down with this book. I gaurentee you'll get thoroughly lost in it . . . .

By Mrs. M on February 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
Beautiful photographs of family weddings. Nice of the Kennedy family to share the photo's of their private moments.Obviously there are 3 photographers who do their weddings and they had permission to run these photos. One of the photographers was Jay Mulvaney and another man called Mr. Reggie took JFK JR and Carolyn's pictures in addition to Arnold and Maria's pictures and the reason I would imagine he is so discreet as his sister is the second wife of Ted Kennedy, Victoria Reggie.)These photographers would make a small fortune if they ever released pictures not previously seen. It would be nice to see more than one of John and Carolyn's wedding, but I guess that is up to the Kennedy's and the Bessette's and they would have to be in agreement. Knowing how much Caroline Kennedy hates the press I doubt it will ever happen.

As a long time admirer of the Kennedy's I really liked this book. The up til now unpublished photographs are wonderful... however I was left wondering why the "first" wives of all the Kennedy men were given no more than a nod.. most notable was Joan Bennett's wedding to Ted. A few pictures and little text were all that were afforded them. Perhaps there was not very much cooperation on the part of the ex Mrs. Kennedy's but for what ever reason is it jarring. Also Robin Lawford is shown and mentioned at her sister's weddings.. however in the family chart at the front of the book she is left out. Perhaps I am being picky about a book that shows us the good times in this family. The radiant brides and the handsome grooms on the happiest days of their lives are touching and memorable.

Although rather voyeuristic in its concept, this book is a lovely scrapbook of the nuptials of America's most famous political family.
The photographs are poignant and artful, and the text, while syncophantic, is illuminating with all sorts of wedding minutiae.
The only error I've found in the book is the omission of Robin Lawford in the family tree at the front of the book; all other Kennedy cousins are present in the tree, but Robin must have flown the coop.
You'll enjoy this book, if such books are your sort of thing.
