People reported that the simple and romantic wedding was held at the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. The bride described her marriage as "a very short, sweet ceremony," to People.

The bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of their family members including the bride's father Bush, mother and her grandfather and former American president George H.W. Bush, 94.

Barbara's twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, who became a mother in April just days after their grandmother Barbara Bush died, served as matron of honor. Hager's daughters, Margaret, 5, and Poppy, 3, and Coyne's niece, Emma, 5, were flower girls.

The new bride, Barbara told People,

It's really sweet. The 'something borrowed' that I'm wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary.

Barbara and Coyne were engaged this summer when Conye got down on one knee proposing his girlfriend during a family get together at Walker's point. Apparently, the place was exactly same where Barbara's grandfather Geroge H.W. Bush proposed her grandmother nearly 75 years earlier.
