Barbara Bush Marries Craig Coyne in Secret Weekend Wedding

Bush's daughter Barbara Pierce Bush was married to Craig Louis Coyne over the weekend in a secret ceremony. The bride wore a custom light ivory Vera Wang wedding dress with spaghetti strap detail and a cowl draped neckline.

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

Jim McGrath, spokesman for the Bush family, tweeted a link to an article by People Magazine, formally announcing the marriage of Barbara Bush to her screenwriter fiance, Craig Coyne.

"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", Bush told PEOPLE.

The family says George W. Bush, Laura Bush and George H.W. Bush were in attendance.

Relatives said the limousine was carrying four sisters and their friends to a birthday celebration for the youngest sibling. Deputy Superintendent Fiore did not comment on speed, or whether the occupants of the vehicle had been wearing seat belts.

She was escorted by her father and grandfather, former President George H W Bush. In April, the family bid farewell to their longtime matriarch, the first President Bush's wife, Barbara Bush.

Poppy pulled double-duty, acting as the ring bearer as well as the flower girl. Sister Jenna Bush and her family were also among the witnesses.

"Barbara is named for a unique and strong woman - and rightly so, because she is unique and strong".

According to the Internet Movie Database, Coyne has also dabbled in acting, appearing in a number of small films going back to 2005.

By New Year's, they made their relationship official and became engaged just five weeks ago when Coyne, a screenwriter, moved from Los Angeles to live with Barbara in New York City. Coyne, who began dating his now-wife following a blind date in November, dropped to one knee in the same spot where Barbara's grandparents got engaged in in August 1943, nearly exactly 75 years earlier.
