Two days earlier, on September 21, 1996, John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Caroline Bessette were wed in a private ceremony on Cumberland Island, Georgia, where the wedding and a reception apparently took place. "America's Most Eligible Bachelor" finally tied the knot. And someone caught it on film (see below).
