The bride’s twin sister, Jenna, wrote in an emotional post on Instagram, “Happy tears, heart exploding as I watched this beautiful girl get married in the place that means love and family. I’m so proud to be this beauties sister.” She added in another post, “My heart exploded last night as I watched my dearest sissy get married in Maine. It was just like her: private (only family!) and full of love (and yes lots of tears!).”

According to a press release, Barbara Bush wore a custom ivory silk crepe Vera Wang gown and was escorted down the aisle by her father and grandfather, George H. W. Bush. Her aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch, officiated the ceremony.
