Jenna Bush Marries in Private Ceremony

CRAWFORD, Texas (May 10) - President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna was married on Saturday evening to Henry Hager, the son of the Virginia Republican Party chairman, in front of more than 200 family members and close friends.

Jenna chose Barbara to be her maid of honor. Here, the twins appear on NBC's 'Today' show April 22. For the ceremony, Barbara will wear a moonstone blue gown made of silk. The bride's 14 attendants -- members of the "house party" in Texas terminology -- wore cocktail-length dresses of silk crinkle chiffon, in colors of Texas wildflowers.

The 26-year-old teacher and author, wearing a white Oscar de la Renta dress, and Hager, wearing a suit, were married around sundown before a limestone altar with a giant cross erected on Bush's 1,600-acre (647-hectare) ranch.

The wedding was a private affair with no press in attendance, but information dribbled out over the past few weeks, including the decor for the evening -- landscape colors: green, lavender and blue -- and the live entertainment for the reception: Super T.

Jenna Bush's twin sister, Barbara, served as the maid of honor, and Hager's brother Jack was the best man, according to the White House. The wedding party also included 14 female attendants and 14 male ushers.

Location: President Bush's Prairie Chapel Ranch
Maid of Honor: Barbara Bush (sister)
Father-Daughter Song: 'You Are So Beautiful'
Ring: Platinum, diamond and sapphire

A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on whether Bush would take Hager's name or where the newlyweds would take their honeymoon. The Washington Post reported they would spend it in Europe.

The couple plan to live in Baltimore, where she plans to teach and he will work at Constellation Energy, according to media reports. The 30-year-old groom is receiving his master's degree in business next week, the reports said.

Hager worked as a White House aide and on Bush's presidential campaign. His father, John Hager, previously served as Virginia's lieutenant governor.

While the wedding guest list was limited to family and close friends, the small town of Crawford was cashing in on the event with gift shops doing a brisk business in "Jenna and Henry" souvenir coffee mugs, mouse pads, Christmas ornaments and key chains.

Numerous area restaurants and churches offered their best wishes for the couple on their billboards and a metal angel sculpture in the town was adorned with a wedding veil and flower bouquet.

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.
