Photos Of 13 U.S. Presidents On Their Wedding Day
The images from US presidents on their wedding days offer insider glimpses into the pre-White House lives of some of the most famous couples of all time. As photos document – with the pre-presidential presidents decked out in their era's finest and often sporting big, loving grins – presidents' weddings were days of celebration just like ones other, normal folks might have. Most US presidents were married once; although, a couple of them were married multiple times.
Photos from those magical days also reveal a lot about weddings throughout history!
