On September 1, 1996, John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette got married in a secret ceremony that was hidden from the peering eyes of the rest of the world.
If the Kennedys were considered America’s royal family, then John Jr. was looked at as the crown prince and as “America’s son.” People adored him, and his entire life was followed closely by the media and the American people. When John began dating, he was looked at as one of the most eligible bachelors in the world because of his ample charm and classic good looks, and everyone wanted to find out whom he would bestow his attention upon.
When Carolyn Bessette entered the picture, it was apparent to everyone in John’s family and close inner circle that she was different.
According to them, John adored her because she challenged him. He loved her for her edge, her maturity, and her depth. The more they stepped out into the public eye, the more obsessed the public became with their love story. This pushed John and Carolyn to want to do things their own way, so they planned a secret wedding that would not be announced.
The secret wedding was fortunately videotaped by John’s best friend, Billy Noonan, and Billy has just released this lost rare footage for the world to see for the very first time.
