Former first daughter Barbara Bush marries in Maine

Barbara Bush, the former first daughter, married her fiance, Craig Coyne, in Kennebunkport, Maine, on Sunday.

The bride donned an ivory silk crepe custom wedding gown from Vera Wang.

The couple exchanged vows at Walker's Point in Kennebunkport, Maine, in front of family, according to a statement from the office of her father, President George W. Bush.

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

George W. and Laura Bush and former President George H.W. Bush were all at the wedding. "The wedding was officiated by the bride's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch".

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

The photo was taken by Paul Morse, who was the Bushes' photographer in the White House and has shot many family events since, including Jenna Bush Hager's wedding and the funeral of the twins' grandmother Barbara Bush earlier this year.

Her namesake and grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush, died at age 92 in April.

"My heart exploded last night as I watched my dearest sissy get married in Maine", fraternal twin sister Jenna wrote on Instagram. Mr Coyne is a screenwriter and actor, known for his role in 2005 war movie Jarhead. The pair met on a blind date in November, and got engaged in August, setting up what People calls "a whirlwind, five-week engagement" in which Coyne moved from California to NY.

Barbara Bush is the CEO of the health equity organization Global Health Corps, aimed at "creating a new breed of health sector leaders who develop innovative solutions to the most challenging health problems all over the world", according to the organization.

Barbara is a Texas native and a graduate of Yale University. The groom is a screenwriter and a graduate of Vanderbilt University.
