Barbara Bush is a married woman.

Jenna told her "Today" co-hosts that she's still emotional following the special family weekend.

Barbara's twin sister, Jenna, served as matron of honor. @laurawbush and I are so proud of our compassionate, daring, fierce, kind, intelligent, loving daughter.

The bride met her new husband in November after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, People reported.

According to the Internet Movie Database, Coyne has also dabbled in acting, appearing in a number of small films going back to 2005.

The pair met on a blind date in November, and got engaged in August, setting up what People calls "a whirlwind, five-week engagement" in which Coyne moved from California to NY. Coyne, who began dating his now-wife following a blind date in November, dropped to one knee in the same spot where Barbara's grandparents got engaged in in August 1943, nearly exactly 75 years earlier.
