The Maine event was followed by a second wedding in Texas. Barbara Bush first married screenwriter Craig Coyne in Kennebunkport, Maine, last October, and the daughter of former President George W. Bush hosted a second wedding ceremony in her family’s ranch in Texas this weekend.

Page Six reports that the newlyweds held another ceremony on her family’s Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas, where the couple invited more than 100 people to celebrate their union. Guests included family members including the father of the bride, as well as other names like Prabal Gurung, a designer, as well as actress Megan Ferguson.

The bride and groom first met after being set up on a blind date. “Luckily, a really handsome guy walked in, and I thought, ‘Please, maybe this one will be him.’ And it was him,” she recalled previously to People. “And so that was our first date, and he rolled with it.”

It worked out. The pair married in an intimate, 20-person ceremony at the Bush family compound in Maine in October. A little over a month later, her beloved grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush, passed away.
