Meaghan Kennedy Townsend and Billy Birdzell wed at the Kennedy Compound in Massachusetts over the weekend
Another member of the Kennedy clan has tied the knot at the family’s iconic summer home.
Meaghan Kennedy Townsend — a granddaughter of Ethel and Robert F. Kennedy — wed Marine veteran Billy Birdzell at the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, over the weekend, Page Six reports. Townsend is the daughter of former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and David Townsend.
Guests reportedly included Rory Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife, actress Cheryl Hines.
Townsend confirmed the wedding news in an Instagram post, sharing a photo of herself, Birdzell and the couple’s twins all smiling at the ceremony.
She simply captioned the post “Married,” and added a slew of emojis. Birdzell too shared a sweet photo from the big day.
According to his website, after leaving the Marines Birdzell worked as assistant director of corporate and foundation relations at the NRA, and once worked at Remington. He now splits his time “between advising new companies on how to build their brand and hosting a range of programming which includes Brother on SnapChat, GunTV, RecoilTV and YouTube.”
