Lauren Bush and David Lauren tie the knot

Monday September 5, 2011

Lauren Bush, the niece of President George W Bush has married David Lauren, son of fashion mogul Ralph Lauren.

The happy couple wed on Sunday in lavish nuptials held in Colorado, People magazine reports.

The ceremony was held at Ralph's 17,000 acre ranch in the Rocky Mountains.

It was marked by an entire weekend of festivities that included a softball game and a post-wedding rodeo.

The 200 guests at the wedding were instructed to wear "black tie with a Western twist".

They included the bride's aunt and uncle, President George W and First Lady Laura Bush, and cousins Jenna and Barbara.

The bridal gown was created by the groom's designer father.

Twenty-seven-year-old Lauren - now known as Lauren Bush-Lauren - first met David, 39, in 2004.

The couple announced their engagement last year.
