(Newser) – Former President George W. Bush is officially done escorting his daughters down the aisle: In what People calls "an intimate secret wedding" of which it nonetheless has all the details, Barbara Bush quietly married screenwriter Craig Coyne at the family estate in Kennebunkport on Sunday. "A very short, sweet ceremony," the 36-year-old twin tells the magazine of the vows spoken before 20 family members, including a pair of former presidents. The pair met on a blind date in November, and got engaged in August, setting up what People calls "a whirlwind, five-week engagement" in which Coyne moved from California to New York. The wedding comes six months after the Bush clan bade farewell to matriarch and namesake Barbara Bush, but the younger Bush says "the ‘something borrowed’ that I’m wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary."
