Sisters Jenna Bush Hager, left, and Barbara Pierce Bush talk about their famous parents and grandparents September 26 at the Abilene Convention Center in Abilene, Tex.

Donning an ivory silk crepe custom gown by Vera Wang, Bush walked down the aisle in a private and intimate family ceremony in Kennebunkport on the arm of her famous father, former President George W. Bush.

The lower-profile of the Bush twins (sister Jenna Bush Hager is a co-host of the "Today" show) had started wedding rumors when reports surfaced that an invitation was out for friends for a "celebration" of the couple on Friday in NY, where they live. "I'm so proud to be this beauties sister", Jenna Bush Hager said along with a sweet photo. Coyne appeared in 2005's hit "Jarhead", and has since shown up in a string of indie projects, including "Look at Me" and "The Snowtown Murders".

The newlyweds plan to live in New York City. To make this romance even more heartwarming, Craig proposed to Barbara at the same spot in Kennebunkport when her grandparents got engaged 75 years earlier. "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".
