KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine - Former first daughter Barbara Bush has gotten married.

The new bride, donning a custom Vera Wang gown, was escorted down the aisle by her father, as well as her grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush. Jenna said she couldn't say, again citing the nature of her work, but Barbara replied, "I am very for women having everything they need to live healthy, dignified lives".

The newlyweds will live in NY, according to the AP.

"The "something borrowed" that I'm wearing is this bracelet that my grandfather gave to my grandmother on their 70th anniversary", Bush said.

"It's just been a very sweet romance", Barbara told PEOPLE. Coyne is an actor and screenwriter whose credits include "Jarhead" and "Snowtown". "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".
