They exchanged the vows in Cumberland Island which is located near Georgia.

As Kennedys life was a publicized one, his wedding was a total opposite to this. Both of them were very much conscious about keeping their wedding a secret affair, so much so that they made all the waiters and caterers sign the confidential agreements.

The Washington socialite, Peggy Cafritz, told that Most women would want to have weddings that all of their friends and family would see and remember, but I’m sure [Carolyn] understood the impossibility of doing that.
