People reported that the bride, who wore a custom Vera Wang gown, also incorporated a memento from her late grandmother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away earlier this year. Only 20 members of Barbara's family witnessed her simple yet romantic ceremony, according to PEOPLE, but the guest list contained some major political icons.

Former President George Bush took on another important role this weekend, walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. "I'm so proud to be this beauties sister", Hager captioned a photo of herself and her sister.


"Happy tears, heart exploding as I watched this handsome girl get married in the place that means love and family. It was just like her: private (only family!) and full of love (and yes lots of tears!)", she wrote. "The wedding was officiated by the bride's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch", stated the family.

Family attendees included the twins' mom, Laura Bush, and dad, former President George W. Bush.


"Happy tears, heart exploding as I watched this attractive girl get married in the place that means love and family. And we've been long-distance for most of it - he's been in LA and I've been in NY - but we've gotten to spend a lot of time together", the bride said, according to People. Jenna said she couldn't say, again citing the nature of her work, but Barbara replied, "I am very for women having everything they need to live healthy, dignified lives".

"It's really sweet. The "something borrowed" that I'm wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary", she told PEOPLE.


Bush got engaged to Coyne, an actor known for Jarhead and The Snowtown Murders, during a family gathering at Kennebunkport in the summer. "And we've been long-distance for most of it - he's been in L.A. and I've been in NY - but we've gotten to spend a lot of time together".
