What better place to get married than the home that houses decades of family memories? The Kennedy Compound was purchased in 1929 by Rose and Joseph Kennedy.
“We chose to host our wedding weekend events at the Kennedy Compound and surrounding family homes because of how special it is to us as a backdrop to our lives,” Sarah, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy's son Chris Kennedy, told PEOPLE. “It is where we have celebrated the great times and come together in heartbreaking times. It truly feels like coming home.”

A Stroll on the Beach
The happy couple could hardly keep their eyes off each other while in the middle of a cute beach photoshoot.
“[We] attended Boston College and met the night before freshman-year classes started,” Sarah told PEOPLE. Before the first day of school, Boston College took students to Target to pick up any last-minute items for their dorms. "In Aisle 10, Jam laid eyes on [me] for the first time and asked, ‘Want to shop with me?'" The rest was history.
Dinner and dancing took place in a large tent at the JFK House. The centerpieces featured a beautiful, garden-style floral arrangement that consisted of a mix of dahlia, red zinnia, white cosmo, pink coneflower, pink zinnia, dark pink zinnia, white coneflower, yellow zinnia, orange zinnia, blue horizon, pink cosmo and wine zinnia — all grown at Sarah’s home.
The florals were overseen by Beach Plum Floral Design.
And Then They Ate Cake
For their big day, the couple went with a three-tier funfetti-flavored wedding cake and also treated their guests to a mini ice cream shop featuring various flavors and cones from Four Seas Ice Cream — their favorite ice cream shop on Cape Cod.
The First Dance
The couple's wedding processional consisted of “Going to the Chapel” by the Dixie Cups and “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beetles. The festivities ended with two hits — “L-O-V-E” by Nat Cole as performed by the bride’s cousins and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)” by Stevie Wonder, performed by family friend Schuyler Grant, a Cape Cod singer-songwriter.
Cheers to New Beginnings
Amidst the historic backdrop, Sarah and Sulahry toasted their union with “Loving Cups," aka the champagne flutes present at Sarah's grandparents Robert F. and Ethel Kennedy’s wedding in 1954.
Ahead of their Aug. 19 wedding, the couple paid homage to Sulahry’s Pakistani heritage with a traditional Mehndi on Friday evening.
Mother of the Bride Speaks

The Hindu ceremony featured “choreographed Bollywood-style dances, henna tattoos, Pakistani desserts, and traditional Pakistani and Indian music.”
A Big Celebration
Guests were photographed dancing and laughing while wearing traditional garments. “Guests are encouraged to wear vibrant colors and patterns in traditional Pakistani clothing to embrace the experience fully,” Sarah told PEOPLE exclusively.
