    Default Jenna Bush & Henry Hager wed in Texas



    It's official: Jenna Welch Bush wed Henry Chase Hager Saturday – making her the first daughter of a sitting United States president to marry in 16 years.

    The pair exchanged vows just before sundown in a lakeside ceremony threatened by a tornado watch at President Bush's secluded 1,600-acre Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas.

    Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, of the Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, presided over the "I do's" before a 4-foot limestone cross and altar that were the president's idea for the occasion and will stand as a permanent landmark on the Bushes' property.


    'A Joyous Occasion'

    "This is a joyous occasion for our family, as we celebrate the happy life ahead of (Jenna) and her husband, Henry," the president said in his weekly radio broadcast Saturday morning. "It's also a special time for Laura, who this Mother's Day weekend will watch a young woman we raised together walk down the aisle."

    A source at the ranch told PEOPLE that the president alone, in traditional style, was escorting the bride to the altar. A White House spokeswoman said she did not know if Jenna planned to take the name Hager as her own.

    Dinner and dancing for the 200 guests – including family and only the closest of friends, including longtime presidential advisers Karl Rove and Karen Hughes – were being held under tents.


    The Wedding Dress

    Jenna, 26, in an embroidered organza Oscar de la Renta gown, was attended by twin sister Barbara, the maid of honor, who wore a dress of moonstone blue shimmer with a silver sash. De la Renta, a close friend of the family, also designed First Lady Laura Bush's deep turquoise "mother-of-the-bride" gown.

    White House spokeswoman Sally McDonough said the colors – from the dresses to the dιcor – were selected to mirror the "very natural" colors of the central Texas landscape: the blues of the lake where Bush fishes for bass, the greens of Mrs. Bush's prized buffalo grass (native grass that she restored to the property) and the lavendar, yellow and blue of the wildflowers.

In keeping with Jenna's desire for an "organic and natural" feel to the wedding, the men dressed in suits – not black tie. And dancing was accompanied not by a fussy orchestra, but by Nashville-based wedding singer Tyrone Smith, otherwise known as Super T and a favorite at Southern frat parties.

    Henry, whose father is a prominent Virginia Republican, celebrated his 30th birthday on Friday amid wedding festivities that included a rehearsal dinner and "Texas-size" afterparty. He met Jenna in 2004, when both of them were working on her father's reelection campaign.

    Finishing up his final year at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business, he is expected to get his degree later this month and then begin work for an energy company based in Baltimore, Md., where he and Jenna recently bought a townhouse.

    The last time a sitting president's child was married was the 1992 Camp David wedding of Dorothy Koch, daughter of President George H.W. Bush, Jenna's grandfather.

    I'll be fair and admit she looks very pretty here.

    And in the interest of fairness, I'll also add that her husband looks like a Corky.

    The official pictures are just beautiful. Looks like it was a lovely ceremony. Jenna's dress is simple but elegant.

    No fan of the Bushes...but Jenna looked beautiful and I love that she chose to have a "simple" (as simple as you can have when your dad is the pres of the US) wedding in Crawford.

    Jenna looks just like her dad and her twin looks just like Laura.

    Her husband is a Rove minion. She could have done much better.

    It looks like it was a classy but low-key affair. Good for her, though there's always the possibility she wanted something huge and extravagant but daddy vetoed it because of the economy and his shitty poll numbers.

    She looks like a rat (just like Daddy)... I thought her dress was supposed to be 'stunning'. Looks like something from 30 years ago you could find in a second hand store.

    You know, I would have done a White House wedding. There haven't been too many of those and not too many people get to have those. I don't think we have had a WH wedding since Trish Nixon. Correct? I couldn't care less about her, hate her father with a passion, think her mother must be an empty-headed twit, but I do like her dress.

    My fiance is related to Laura Bush. We weren't invited though.
