Former first daughter Barbara Bush tied the knot on Sunday in Kennebunkport, Maine. @laurawbush and I are so proud of our compassionate, daring, fierce, kind, intelligent, loving daughter. "And we're thrilled to welcome Craig Coyne to our family", he wrote in his caption. The bride, who serves as the co-founder and chair of Global Health Corps, a non-profit that supports emerging health professionals, wore an ivory silk crepe Vera Wang custom gown, according to the statement. "Poppy realized that the box was empty so she ran to the front and she kept holding it open, like 'This is fake, this is fake, ' " Jenna said while talking with her TODAY show colleagues on October 8.

George W. and Laura Bush and former President George H.W. Bush were all at the wedding. The 36-year-old daughter of former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush - who was named after her paternal grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush - married screenwriter Craig Coyne on Sunday, People magazine reports.

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

Dorothy Bush Koch, the bride's aunt, officiated the wedding.

Jenna Bush Hager provided details about the wedding to the "Today Show" on Monday.

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.

"It's just been a very sweet romance", Barbara told People.
