The family-only ceremony was held outside, overlooking the ocean at Walker's Point, where the elder Mr Bush - who is now 94 - lives. Only 20 members of Barbara's family witnessed her simple yet romantic ceremony, according to PEOPLE, but the guest list contained some major political icons.

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

George W. Bush paid homage to his late mother in his Instagram post, writing that his newlywed daughter "is named for a unique and strong woman".

Bush's father walked her down the aisle, while her aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch, served as officiant, People reported. Barbara Bush died at the age of 92 in April, leaving behind her husband, five children, 17 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

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

Barbara Bush's twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, shared details of the weekend nuptials on "Today" show Monday morning.

Her grandfather, George H.W. Bush, was in attendance, looking as adorable and handsome as ever.

"I just told her and everybody how much she means to me".

Jenna served as matron of honor, while her daughters, 5-year-old Margaret and 3-year-old Poppy, were flower girls, according to People. @laurawbush and I are so proud of our compassionate, daring, fierce, kind, intelligent, loving daughter.

The newlyweds will live in NY, according to the AP. Mr Coyne is a screenwriter and actor, known for his role in 2005 war movie Jarhead.

The addition to the family comes after a year of loss for the Bushes. "And we've been long-distance for most of it - he's been in L.A. and I've been in NY - but we've gotten to spend a lot of time together".
