JFK & Jackie Married Here

So, back to Newport, Rhode Island and a stop at St. Mary's Catholic Church where JFK and Jackie were married in September of 1953.  The exterior is delightful with its Gothic architecture and one can try to imagine the scene of the historic wedding and newly married couple as they emerged through the large wooden doors.  The site is located at a busy intersection with multiple lanes of traffic, towering trees and narrow New England streets; therefore, I had trouble getting decent vertical shots of the church.  Of course, the structure was locked but masses are still held regularly in this location.

The above scene makes me wonder just who attended the wedding and waited outside these doors to greet the newlyweds.
