Barbara Bush, the daughter of former President George W.  Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush, married Craig Coyne, this weekend in a quiet, low key, romantic ceremony held at the family compound in Kennebunkport, MA.

"After Barbara's father walked her down the aisle, the bride and groom exchanged vows in front of their immediate family, including former President Bush, 72, Mrs. Bush, 71, and Barbara's grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, 94. Barbara's twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, served as matron of honor, and her daughters, Margaret, 5, and Poppy, 3, were flower girls along with Coyne's niece, Emma, 5. Poppy did double duty at the ceremony, also serving as the ring bearer. The bride's aunt, Dorothy "Doro" Bush Koch, officiated," People Magazine reported.

The younger Barbara, 36, wore a bracelet her late grandmother and former First Lady, Barbara, received from her husband, former President George G.W. Bush, for their 70th Wedding Anniversary. The intimate traditional ceremony was attended by twenty family and friends of both the bride and her screenwriter husband.

The grooms family also attended and participated in the intimate service.

The couple who met through a blind date last November had maintained a bi-coastal relationship as Bush lives in New York and Coyne until recently resided in Los Angeles. Relationship details were kept private and the couple by New Year's Eve were exclusive.

After a whirlwind courtship, People Magazine reported, "It was during a family gathering at Kennebunkport this summer, Barbara adds, that she and Coyne were walking along the oceanside rocks when he suddenly dropped to his knee in the same spot where Barbara's grandparents got engaged almost exactly 75 years earlier, in August 1943."
