The 27-year-old model, the niece of former President George W. Bush and granddaughter of former President George H.W. Bush, reportedly donned an “intricately embroidered Victorian-style gown” crafted by her new father-in-law. According to the New York Post, one of the wedding attendees declared it “one of Ralph’s most iconic designs.”
Guests opted for a rugged Western look, sporting cowboy boots, black ties, turquoise jewelry and denim. The wedding reportedly began with the bride riding in a horse-drawn carriage as guests gazed up from carved wooden benches. According to the Post, the bride strolled down the aisle with both parents.
The Post also reported that George W. Bush, his wife, Laura, and their daughters, Jenna and Barbara, attended the ceremony. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush also was in attendance. As ABC News reported last week, former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush could not go to the wedding because the high altitude could cause health problems for the couple.
Us Weekly reported Monday that the weekend affair had plenty of outdoor activities, including a picnic, a rodeo and a softball game. The ranch is complete with a saloon, teepees and cabins.
Bruni-Sarkozy to protect new baby’s privacy
In an interview with TF1 program “Sept a Huit,” the former model said she will forbid the press to print pictures of her child.
“I will do everything to protect this infant, and I’ll be absolutely rigorous,” the 43-year-old said, as translated by People magazine. “I will never show photos of this child. I will never expose this child.”
“My eldest son was exposed once, not in a public situation but in a private one, and it was a great error,” Ms. Bruni-Sarkozy said. “I should have foreseen there would be photographers.”
Addressing tabloid speculation that Ms. Bruni-Sarkozy will have another son, the first lady said, “A boy? I don’t know myself, so the press knows better than I do.”
Ms. Bruni-Sarkozy fueled pregnancy rumors earlier this year when she veiled her belly in the presence of photographers. In a May interview with Le Parisien, she wouldn’t confirm or deny her pregnancy.View Entire Story
