Surprise! Barbara Bush Had a Second Wedding in Texas 6 Months After Secretly Marrying Husband Craig


Six months after saying “I do” in front of her closest family, including her late grandfather George H. W. Bush, Barbara Bush had a second — bigger — wedding for family and friends this past weekend in Texas, PEOPLE confirms. “Barbara and Craig did have another wedding,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They wanted to make sure her grandfather got to be there so they kept their first wedding small and intimate.” “This party was a chance for them to celebrate with all their friends and family as well,” the source says. According to social media posts from some of the guests, the big day appears to have been held at the family’s ranch in Crawford. “This time it was definitely bigger, and they had all their friends there,” the source adds. (A spokesman for the Bush family did not immediately respond to a request for comment.) Barbara, 37, the eldest twin daughter of former President George W. Bush, wed screenwriter Craig Coyne in October at the Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “A very short, sweet ceremony” is how Barbara described it to PEOPLE at the time. The bride’s aunt, Dorothy “Doro” Bush Koch, officiated. After Barbara’s father walked her down the aisle, the bride and groom exchanged vows in front of their immediate family, including President Bush, 72, former First Lady Laura Bush, 72, and Barbara’s grandfather. Barbara’s twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, served as matron of honor, and Jenna’s daughters, Margaret and Poppy, were flower girls along with Coyne’s niece, Emma. Poppy did double duty at the ceremony — also serving as the ring bearer. Though Barbara’s grandmother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, died at age 92 last April, the bride accessorized her custom Vera Wang gown of ivory silk crepe with a sentimental reminder of her namesake. (Less than two months after Barbara’s wedding, H. W. Bush passed away as well.) The former first daughter also revealed that she and Coyne — who has acted in the 2005 hit Jarhead, as well as independent films such as Look at Me and The Snowtown Murders — tied the knot after a whirlwind, five-week engagement and in the same week when Coyne relocated from Los Angeles to make his new home with Barbara in New York City. The couple, who kept their romance under wraps until the wedding, were set up by friends on a blind date in November 2017 and committed as a couple by that New Year’s Eve — despite living on opposite sides of the country, with Coyne in L.A. and Barbara in Manhattan. It was during a family gathering at Kennebunkport last summer, Barbara told PEOPLE, that she and Coyne were walking along the oceanside rocks when he suddenly dropped to his knee in the same spot where Barbara’s grandparents got engaged almost exactly 75 years earlier, in August 1943.
