Inside the wedding of Barbara Bush and Craig Coyne: All the photos of George W., H.W. and the whole family


Amid a painful year for the Bush family, this weekend was pure joy.

Five months after the death of her namesake, George W. Bush's daughter, Barbara Bush, wed beau Craig Coyne in a gorgeous outdoor Maine ceremony.

"Happy tears, heart exploding as I watched this beautiful girl get married in the place that means love and family," wrote Jenna Bush Hager of seeing her twin walk down the aisle.

Mom Laura Bush shared a family photo with her husband, children and grandchildren, writing, "It was a wonderful day in Maine when Barbara married her love and Craig joined our family."

But it's an image of George H.W. Bush, draped in a navy blanket as he watches his granddaughter exchange vows, that's perhaps the most striking photo captured by photographer Paul Morse, who also shared moments from the nuptials.

Just 20 people, all family members, were invited to enjoy the ceremony, according to People. The intimate affair took place on a private compound owned by the family, where Craig proposed just five weeks ago. He did so in the same spot where Barbara's grandparents got engaged in August 1943.

“The ‘something borrowed’ that I’m wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary,” Barbara told the outlet.

Barbara, formerly a First Daughter of the United States, is the co-founder and president of public health-focused nonprofit Global Health Corps. Craig is a screenwriter who has also appeared in films.

The two met through a blind date in November 2017.
