Former first daughter Barbara Bush is a married woman. The bride wore an ivory silk crepe gown by Vera Wang, according to a statement from the office of George W. Bush.

Barbara's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch, served as officiant of the wedding.

The 36-year-old married 37-year-old screenwriter Craig Coyne.

The lower-profile of the Bush twins (sister Jenna Bush Hager is a co-host of the "Today" show) had started wedding rumors when reports surfaced that an invitation was out for friends for a "celebration" of the couple on Friday in NY, where they live.

The wedding comes six months after the Bush clan bade farewell to matriarch and namesake Barbara Bush, but the younger Bush says "the "something borrowed" that I'm wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary".
