Lauren Bush, David Lauren get married in Colorado




While the rest of the world has been obsessing over Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries getting married, a little-known family originally from New England married away a young debutante to the son of a sartorial consultant. You may have heard of Lauren Bush, niece of President Bush the latter, and David Lauren, son of the fashion designer Ralph Lauren ... they're somewhat known in some circles, and got married in Colorado on Sunday.

People says the 27-year-old Bush, niece of George W. and Laura Bush, and the 39-year-old Lauren, son of Lauren and his wife Ricky, got hitched on his dad's 17,000-acre ranch in the Rockies. It was an entire weekend hoedown, including a picnic and rehearsal and Saturday and a post-wedding rodeo on Monday.

Among the 200 guests were the former first couple, cousins Jenna and Barbara Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Her grandparents, George H.W. and Barbara Bush, weren't there, but they sent a video. On the groom's side were his sister Dylan Lauren and Ivanka Trump. Lauren's dad, Dubya's brother Neil, walked her down the aisle with mom Sharon, all while wearing a gown designed by her father-in-law. How high class is that?

And finally, what you've been waiting to hear: Her new married name will be Lauren Bush-Lauren. If you say it aloud, it's much more regal than Kim Humphries.
