Jenna Bush wedding is a First Family affair


It was arguably America’s wedding of the year, uniting a presidential daughter
with a former White House aide – but its details were kept almost entirely

Jenna Bush married Henry Hager in a down-home Texas wedding yesterday at the
family ranch in Crawford, Texas, before some 200 friends and relatives and
in front of a simple limestone cross erected near a lake.

“Our little girl Jenna married a really good guy, Henry Hager. The wedding was
spectacular, all we could have hoped for,” President Bush told
reporters afterwards.

“The weather cooperated nicely and, just as the vows were exchanged, the
sun set over our lake… We’re mighty blessed.”

n contrast with other First Family weddings, details of Jenna’s nuptials had
been kept secret, although the White House released about a dozen
photographs afterwards.

Jenna’s 26-year-old twin sister, Barbara, was her maid of honor and Mr Hager’s
brother, Jack, was best man. The bride and groom were attended-to by 14
young female attendants and 14 male ushers.

The bride wore a hip-hugging Oscar de la Renta white gown, and enjoyed a dance
with her father to the Joe Cocker ballad You Are So Beautiful.

As the nuptials drew to a close, tour buses loaded with wedding guests began
rolling through downtown Crawford, past souvenir shops which had already
sold out of Jenna and Henry coffee mugs and mouse pads.

The couple are expected to honeymoon in Europe and settle in Baltimore.
