Lauren Bush Marries David Lauren

25 Sep

Lauren Bush, niece of former President George W. Bush and David Lauren, son of designer and fashion icon Ralph Lauren tied the knot on the 4th of September in a lavish ceremony at the fashion mogul’s 17,000-acre Colorado Ranch.

Lauren arrived in a horse-drawn carriage to an outdoor chapel made out of Aspen trees felled on the ranch. She walked down the aisle, arm-in-arm with both of her divorced parents, Sharon and Neil.

The bride, 27, who is now known as  Lauren Bush-Lauren, wore an embroidered Victorian-style gown designed by Ralph Lauren, the father of the groom and Vera Wang. David, 39, wore a vintage Lincoln era-inspired tuxedo. Guests dressed in Western-themed black tie, featuring cowboy boots, denim and turquoise jewelry.

Guests included Lauren’s uncles, former president George W. Bush, with his wife and daughters, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ivanka Trump.

Her grandparents, former president George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush did not attend due to the ranch’s high altitude, which could threaten their health. But they sent a video message that was played at the Saturday night rehearsal dinner, in which they expressed regrets for not being there but offered the couple best wishes for a bright future together.

Bush met her 39-year-old fiancé at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion gala in 2004 while they were both waiting outside to be picked up. The former model was studying anthropology at Princeton University at the time while Lauren was a Vice President at his father’s fashion house.

Laura is currently a handbag designer and philanthropist, working on behalf of the UN World Food Programme on the FEED Projects, which uses proceeds from FEED bags and other products to get nutritious food to those in need.David is Senior Vice President, Advertising, Marketing and Corporate Communications at Polo Ralph Lauren, a position he has held since October 2001.

Here at Weddingstory we wish them all the best in their new life together!
