MIAMI — Three generations of Bushes descended on a church on Miami's Brickell Avenue Saturday for a wedding and Memorial Day family reunion of the Republican Party's most enduring dynasty.
The two former presidents -- George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush -- were on hand, along with the former first ladies to watch as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's youngest son, John Ellis Bush Jr., 26, known as "Jebby,'' married Sandra Algudady, who lives in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables.
The family's elder statesman, George H.W., known as 41, emerged from a tan SUV, his wife, Barbara, at his side, after being escorted to the church by two Miami-Dade Police squad cars.
He was wearing a white summer suit and appeared frail, entered the white stone, red roofed St. Jude Catholic church with the help of a cane.
The groom's father arrived about 30 minutes before the ceremony in a dark suit.
The second President Bush, George W., known as 43, was accompanied by his wife, Laura, and daughters Jenna and Barbara. He turned to a photographer and said jokingly, "Make me look good'' as he departed the church.
Security was tight. There were plain-clothed cops, uniformed Miami Police and Secret Service agents among the guests who arrived by limousine and also on foot from fashionable Brickell Avenue.
Little was known about the bride, whose marriage license registry shows she turned 30 last month. A quick Google search on the couple found that they are registered at Williams-Sonoma.
