Biden granddaughter Naomi married in White House wedding

The White House was utilized for a wedding for the 19th time in history on Saturday. Naomi Biden is the granddaughter of American President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.

The bride, a lawyer, is 28 years old and has been residing at the White House with the groom, Jackson Hole, Wyoming native and recent law school graduate Peter Neal, who is 25. He is currently engaged in National Security work at the Georgetown University Law Center. They alighted in 2018.

The ceremony, with no press access allowed, took place on the South Lawn of the White House on a chilly day.

Naomi Biden is the daughter of the president’s son, Hunter Biden, and his first wife, Kathleen Buhle.

Jill Biden’s communications director, Elizabeth Alexander, said the Biden family will pay for the wedding activities that occur at the White House, “consistent with other private events hosted by the first family and following the traditions of previous White House wedding festivities in prior administrations.”

Unlike some past such ceremonies, the festivities were closed to the news media.

“Naomi and Peter have asked that their wedding be closed to the media, and we are respecting their wishes. This is something that the couple has decided,” White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on Friday.
