Patrick Kennedy married Amy Petitgout in Hyannis Port, Mass. on Friday. The former Rhode Island Congressman is the son of the late Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy.
According to the Washington Post, Kennedy and Petitgout, a schoolteacher, were married by Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.
The groom told the Cape Cod Times before the ceremony: "She's the best I could have ever imagined, and I'm lucky to be able to share this day with her."
The groom's father Ted lost his battle to brain cancer in 2009 . Ted's eight siblings included the late President John F. Kennedy and Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
One of Eunice's five children was Maria Shriver. That makes Patrick Kennedy the first cousin of Arnold Schwarzenegger's estranged wife.
