Posted October 09, 2018

Bush is officially done escorting his daughters down the aisle: In what People calls "an intimate secret wedding" of which it nonetheless has all the details, Barbara Bush quietly married screenwriter Craig Coyne at the family estate in Kennebunkport on Sunday.

The bride is the daughter of former President George W. Bush and the granddaughter of former President George H.W. Bush.

In another photo, Bush Hager held onto her sister in a loving embrace.

"Happy tears, heart exploding as I watched this lovely girl get married in the place that means love and family".

The 41st president was watching nearby, as was the mother of the bride, former First Lady Laura Bush and Barbara's twin sister and maid of honor, Jenna. Bush married screenwriter Craig Coyne. "I'm so proud to be this beauties sister", Hager captioned a photo of herself and her sister.

Hager's daughters, Margaret, 5, and Poppy, 3, along with the groom's niece, Emma, 5, served as flower girls for the ceremony.

The bride's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch, officiated the ceremony.

"I just told her and everybody how much she means to me".

The couple - who were set up by friends on a blind date last November - was very discreet during their brief romance, having never even been photographed together at events.

Though grandmother and namesake Barbara Bush died in April, the younger Barbara Bush said she wore her grandma's bracelet at her wedding as her "something borrowed", and sported a pair of earrings from Jenna as her "something blue".

The newlyweds will live in New York City, according to the Bush family statement.
