RFKs grandson Chris Kennedy ties the knot in second wedding in Hyannis Port – Daily Mail


Mariah, Cara, and Michaela Kennedy Cuomo joined the rest of the Kennedy family in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, over the weekend for the wedding of Erin Daigle and Chris Kennedy Jr. — the grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

The sisters, who are the daughters of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his former wife Kerry Kennedy, were among the guests who were seen posing for photos at the celebration. Mariah, 26, and Michaela, 23, both shared pictures on their respective Instagram accounts. 

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot presided over the wedding, which was actually the couple’s second. Lightfoot married Chris and Erin in a small courthouse ceremony in Chicago in December during the coronavirus pandemic.

Chris is one of Christopher G. Kennedy and Sheila Sinclair Kennedy’s four children, and there were plenty of guests from the Kennedy side of the family. 

The outdoor ceremony was held in front of the water at the Kennedy compound, with the couple exchanging vows under a wood wedding arch adorned with flowers.

The bride looked radiant in an ethereal white gown featuring a lace V-neck bodice. Her blonde hair was styled in loose curls and adorned with small flowers and a sheer veil.  

Meanwhile, the groom sported a navy suit with a white boutonniere, a white dress shirt, and a light blue tie for the wedding. 

Guests enjoyed cocktails outside before dining under a large white tent decorated with twinkly lights, rattan lanterns, and a dance floor. The tables were set with white linens, candles, and an assortment of artfully arranged white and blue flowers.

There were a number of circular tables with gold chairs and one long rectangular table near the center of the tent for the newlyweds and their wedding party.   

RFK’s daughter Kerry shared a sweet video of her nephew Chris twirling his wife during their first dance, which was set to the song ‘Dancing in the Moonlight.’

The footage shows Chris romantically dipping and kissing Erin on the dance floor as their family and friends cheered. 

Kerry’s daughter Mariah was joined by her boyfriend Tellef Lundevall, and she posted snapshots of both the wedding and the weekend’s activities. 

In one image, she is pictured standing at the top of a red metal buoy in the ocean with family friends Gail Evertz and Adam Ellis Harper. Another shows her wakeboarding.

During one of the family events, she posed for a photo with her uncle Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s wife Cheryl Hines, his daughter Kyra, and his son Conor’s girlfriend, model Ava Dash. 

Mariah was dressed to impress at the wedding in a shimmery purple wrap dress with a slit. Kyra also wore purple, although she opted for a pale lilac strapless with a funky lace netting at the bottom. 

In one snapshot, they can be seen having a laugh at the ceremony with their cousin Kathleen Shriver, the granddaughter of the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver. 

Mariah also posted a heartwarming image of Chris and Erin at the altar with Mayor Lightfoot standing between them. 

‘Lovely and action-packed weekend celebrating Chris & Erin!’ she captioned the snapshots.

Mariah is featured in her sister Michaela’s photos from the weekend, as well, including a selfie they took with Gail while seated for the ceremony. 

In another playful photo, Michaela, who donned a colorful floral dress and purple highlights in her brown hair, has her arms slung around her sister Cara and Carolina Kristof as Adam holds up her legs. 

Like her sister Mariah, she posted a picture of the couple at the altar, as well as a selfie she took with two little girls who were among the youngest guests at the wedding. 

‘To have and to hold,’ she wrote in the caption. ‘Welcome to the fam #chrisanderin2021.’

Actor Keegan-Michael Key attended the wedding with his wife, Elle, and he appeared to have a great time. His only post of the night was a video of himself enthusiastically dancing with a little girl under the tent.

And it was another big family event for Ava, who was in Hyannis Port with Conor earlier this month for the Kennedys’ annual Fourth of July celebration. 

Conor, 27, has reportedly been dating Ava, 21, for months, and their first public outing as a couple was an LGBTQ fundraiser in June. 

The model documented the wedding weekend on her Instagram Stories, including photos of herself with Conor, Kyra with her dad, and a group shot of a bunch of guys making a human pyramid. 

When she wished Conor a happy birthday on Instagram that Sunday, she posted a photo of them at the wedding among other snaps.

Ava looked chic in a two-piece floral dress featuring a cropped halter top and a high-waisted skirt. Conor, who was a groomsman, had on a navy suit and light blue tie that matched the groom. 

‘Happy birthday, I love you,’ Ava captioned the images.   

When Chris officially married Erin in December, he posted photos from the civil ceremony on his Facebook page. In all of the images, they are wearing masks.

One picture shows them posing with Mayor Lightfoot in front of a Christmas tree as she holds up their marriage certificate. In another, they are holding up Mr. and Mrs. balloons on a boat on the Chicago River with a ‘Just Married’ sign behind them.  

The Kennedys were all together earlier this month to ring in the Fourth of July at their compound, where they posed for their annual family photo. 

For decades, multiple generations of Kennedys have been celebrating the Fourth of July in Hyannis Port, where they enjoy boat rides and the annual parade — in addition to their family portraits.
