A borrowed dress, a ceremony in view of a bike shop, and a wedding planned in only a few days — the nuptials of Sarah Gore, the youngest daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, weren’t typical of political royalty.

Sarah Gore, 35, wed pianist Patrick Maiani, on Friday in Carpinteria, Calif., People magazine reports.

Gore, who’s an artist, says her dad, her mom, Tipper, and one of her two sisters were there, with the guest list determined by who could make it at the last minute to the surprise event. The couple decided to get hitched only last week after dating for almost a year and getting engaged at Christmas. The youngest Gore daughter wed businessman Bill Lee in 2007 in a far more conventional ceremony; it’s unclear when they divorced.

The wedding sounds like a homegrown affair, with a gown borrowed from a friend, and other pals making the bouquet and snapping photos. And though there were no ice sculptures or elaborate floral arrangements, the event didn’t lack for the requisite “awww” moment: during their vows, People reports, Maiani spoke the lyrics to a song he wrote for her after they began dating called “‘Will you Marry Me Someday.”
