After hearing the wedding bells, an hour after Instagram photos added more fuel to the rumor that former first daughter Barbara Marries had tied her knot, secret style, but her parents appeared and made it official. Bush family on Monday has released a statement that reads, “President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush are delighted to announce the marriage of their daughter, Barbara Pierce, to Mr. Craig Louis Coyne.”
Bushes said that the wedding took place on Sunday in Maine’s Kennebunkport at the family compound.
Some details say, “The bride wore an ivory silk crepe Vera Wang custom gown and was escorted by her father and grandfather. The wedding was officiated by the bride’s aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch.”
Bush twins (sister Jenna Bush Hagar) had started the rumors of the wedding. Ms. Hagar is co-host of the “Today” show. The initiation of Barbara’s low-key wedding was out only for friends and a ‘celebration’ of a couple in New York on Friday, where they lived. Following which on Sunday, there was a teaser image on the Instagram post on SullyHWBush’s account. The lovely Labrador owned by ex-President George H.W. Bush, grandfather of the bride.
Picture credit goes to Paul Morse, who was Bushes’ photographer in the US White House and has covered many family events of Bushes since then, which includes wedding event of Jenna Bush Hager and funeral of Twin’s grandmother Barbara Bush, earlier this year.
36-years Barbara Bush is the co-founder and Chairperson of Global Health Corps. Coyne is an Actor as well as a screenwriter whose credits include ‘Snowtown’ and ‘Jarhead’.
