John and Jackie Kennedy's wedding photos

Wedding Dresses

Lisa Larsen/

John and Jackie Kennedy were married on September 12, 1953, and in honor of their wedding anniversary LIFE has released exclusive, never-before-published photos from their time together as husband and wife, as well as images from their wedding day.

Jackie's dress was designed by Ann Lowe although some of us here think that if she had gotten married today she would wear something by Angel Sanchez. The elaborate pleating and pinwheel detail is certainly reminiscent of Sanchez, so if you are looking to channel the former First Lady's style on your wedding day check out Angel Sanchez's gowns here. —Cari Wolfert
