While the rest of the world was fretting over the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the Bush family had other plans.
Unbeknownst to most, Barbara Bush wed her fiance, screenwriter Craig Coyne, in a very private and intimate ceremony on Sunday.

Barbara is named for a unique and strong woman — and rightly so, because she is unique and strong. @laurawbush and I are so proud of our compassionate, daring, fierce, kind, intelligent, loving daughter. And we’re thrilled to welcome Craig Coyne to our family. 📸: @paulmorsephoto
Barbara Bush, 36, is the daughter of former president George W. Bush and Laura Bush, and twin sister to Jenna Bush Hager.
It is a reasonable assumption the current political climate had a lot to do with Bush and Coyne wanting to keep this ceremony very quiet.
One of the reasons they were able to do so was because they had only gotten engaged five weeks ago.
When Bush’s Instagram post went out, it literally caught the entire nation by surprise.
Trolls, of course, were quick to point out President Donald Trump was not invited, but that was just nonsense.
The fact is hardly anyone was invited.
According to an exclusive report in People, just 20 family members attended.
After the former president made the post about his daughter’s wedding, the sentiments immediately started to flow in.
Among them was a very nice tweet sent out by first daughter Ivanka Trump.
When Ivanka sent out her tweet, however, liberal trolls unleashed on her for hours.
From what we have been able to see, the ceremony, while small, was absolutely beautiful.
The wedding was held in Kennebunkport, Maine, where the Bush family has spent many summers and weekends.
The bride told People it was a “very short, sweet ceremony.”
Right in the front row was the elder George H. W. Bush, looking very excited about the future of his granddaughter.
Even the officiant was in the family — Aunt Dorothy Bush Koch did the honors.
