  • Former first daughter Barbara Bush ties the knot in Maine

She exchanged vows with screenwriter Craig Coyne at the family's compound in front of family and friends.

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

George Bush paid tribute to his late mother, Barbara Bush, in the post, writing that his daughter and mother share similar traits.

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

The bride's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch, officiated the ceremony. Jenna phoned in to America's Today show on Monday where she revealed she was still crying tears of joy 24 hours after watching her sister tie the knot.

The bride donned an ivory silk crepe custom wedding gown from Vera Wang.

Jenna served as matron of honor, while her daughters, 5-year-old Margaret and 3-year-old Poppy, were flower girls, according to People. "I'm so proud to be this beauties sister", Hager captioned a photo of herself and her sister.

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

As for the Bush twins, they both ended up living in New York City, just blocks away from each other. "And we've been long-distance for most of it - he's been in LA and I've been in NY - but we've gotten to spend a lot of time together".

Bush got engaged to Coyne, an actor known for Jarhead and The Snowtown Murders, during a family gathering at Kennebunkport in the summer.
