Former Rhode Island congressman Patrick Kennedy, the 44-year-old son of late US Senator Ted Kennedy, married New Jersey school teacher Amy Petitgout yesterday in a small, private ceremony at the Kennedys’ Cape Cod compound. The late afternoon event was attended by family and a few close friends, and US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer officiated. Patrick’s older brother, Ted Kennedy Jr., was best man, and his sister Kara, mother Joan, and stepmom Vicki, were all there for the happy occasion. Guests included Frank DiPaolo Jr., the 104-year-old former doorkeeper at the Rhode Island House of Representatives. Since leaving Congress in January, Kennedy has been named a visiting fellow at Brown University and has campaigned to improve brain research.
