Lauren Bush and David Lauren Wed in Jewish Ceremony

It was the society wedding of the season. There were plenty of boldfaced names, designer dresses — and a chuppah, too.

Over Labor Day weekend, Lauren Bush — granddaughter of George H.W. Bush and niece of George W. Bush — married her longtime boyfriend, David Lauren, son of iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren, in a Jewish ceremony outside Telluride, Colo.

The two were married by Cantor Angela Warnick Buchdahl of New York’s Central Synagogue. Buchdahl was the first Asian American to complete the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion rabinnic and cantorial program.

Lauren’s father, Ralph Lauren, is Jewish. Born Ralph Lifshitz, he attended Salanter Academy Jewish Day School and Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy, in New York.

And to answer your inevitable questions: Yes, the bride wore Ralph Lauren (of course!) and no, she will not be known as Lauren Lauren. She will go as Lauren Bush-Lauren. Good choice.
