Barbara Bush's twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, shared details of the weekend nuptials on "Today" show Monday morning. "It was a very secret wedding, a little bit like my elusive sister. But also, just family in a place that means family love, and it was just beautiful," Hager, who served as matron of honor, said.

Hager said her sister's "something borrowed" was a bracelet her grandfather had given to his wife on their 70th wedding anniversary. Her namesake and grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush, died at age 92 in April.

The bride is the co-founder of public health nonprofit Global Health Corps. The couple will live in New York.
