Jenna Bush could not see herself getting married at the White House surrounded by antique furniture and oil portraits of presidents. Instead, she and Henry Hager said 'I do' on Saturday at President George W. Bush's ranch in Crawford where the corn is thigh-high, roads are named Cattle Drive and the Texas flag is painted on the rooftops of barns. The president and the bride picked You Are So Beautiful for their father-daughter dance, according to band leader Tyrone Smith of Nashville, Tennessee. Smith and his 10-piece party band, The Tyrone Smith Revue, was asked to do Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes by Taj Mahal for the newlyweds' first dance. Media were not permitted at the wedding. Smith, who witnessed the wedding ceremony, said afterward the groom was dressed in a dark blue suit with powder-blue tie and the bride wore a 'very simple and elegant' white dress, but did not wear a veil. Even without the prying eyes of strangers, Jenna's marriage to her longtime boyfriend made presidential history. It will be remembered as an upbeat moment of Mr Bush's two-term presidency beset by terrorism, war and the nation's current limp economy. 'This is a joyous occasion for our family, as we celebrate the happy life ahead of her and her husband, Henry,' Mr Bush said in his Saturday radio address. '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.' Jenna's twin sister, Barbara, was maid of honour and 14 other women were in her 'house party'. The women in the 'house party' were clad in seven different styles of knee-length dresses in seven different colours that match the palette of Texas wildflowers - blues, greens, lavenders and pinky reds. More than 200 family and friends converged for the nuptials on the 648-hectare ranch where a tent was erected for the post-ceremony dinner and dancing. The ceremony began about a half hour before sunset. The couple stood at a cross, made of beige Texas limestone, that was erected near the ranch's man-made lake. The cross and altar was made of the same stone used to construct the Bush ranch house. The Reverend Kirbyjon Caldwell of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston officiated. Mr Hager's father, John Hager, is the chairman of the Virginia Republican Party and is a former lieutenant governor of Virginia. Henry Hager met Jenna, 26, during her father's 2004 re-election campaign. He worked as an aide to Mr Bush's former top political adviser Karl Rove. The honeymoon was expected to be in Europe, although the White House would not comment. After that, they plan to live in a two-bedroom townhouse in Baltimore, Maryland. She plans to return to teaching and he will work for Constellation Energy, a power supplier based in Maryland.
