Jenna Bush and Henry Hager exchanged vows in front of a Texas limestone altar with an attached vertical limestone cross picked out personally by President Bush. The three-ton cross and altar are permanent and manmade from stone from a local quarry.

“My one contribution is to — we put a giant cross made out of Texas limestone that will serve as the altar, but also serve as a landmark on our place for years to come,” President Bush told news reporters in an exclusive interview this week at the White House.

Bush and Jenna glided across the dance floor to “You Are So Beautiful” — a ballad made famous by Joe Cocker. The newlyweds danced to “Lovin’ in My Baby’s Eyes” by Taj Mahal.
Officiating was the Reverend (priest) Kirbyjon Caldwell, an powerful minister from Houston and longtime religious adviser to Bush, who has endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Wedding events were so closely held that even the chef who prepared the rehearsal dinner Friday night in a nearby town didn’t find out he was working on the first daughter’s wedding until late Thursday night.

“It’s pretty amazing how they kept it quiet,” said Dave Hermann, who with his wife, Katie, own The Range Restaurant at the Barton House in Salado, about an hour’s drive from Crawford.

In a phone interview, Hermann said the groom’s mother, Margaret Chase Hager, used an alias when she called to arrange the event. “Quite honestly, there may have been a handful of people who knew something, but not very early on.”

For the rehearsal dinner, Hermann served lemon-crusted rainbow trout and grilled pork tenderloin over roasted corn pudding. It was the groom’s 30th birthday, so he also served a lemony, vanilla cake.

“Lots of people gave toasts,” he said. “Henry shared some funny stories about dating Jenna and said something about how he couldn’t wait to be the son” the Bushes never had.
