President Joe Biden's granddaughter, Naomi Biden, gets wed in White House

President Joe Biden's granddaughter, Naomi Biden’s wed Peter Neal in the White House.

Neal and Naomi Biden exchanged vows at a chilly late-morning ceremony on the South Lawn, which served as the location's first-ever wedding site. The bride is a president's grandchild, making it the first wedding at the White House.

A large area of the South Lawn was covered in dozens of white folding chairs, and the South Portico of the White House was adorned with wreaths and garland with white flowers facing the lawn and the Washington Monument in the background.

No tent was present. Even though it was chilly, some women chose to wear open-toed shoes as they arrived as guests hours before the ceremony.

Despite the fact that the ceremony was held outside on the grounds of what the president and first lady referred to as the "people's house," the bride and groom opted to bar journalists from attending.

Naomi Biden, a 28-year-old attorney in Washington, Hunter Biden, the president's and first lady Jill Biden's son, and Kathleen Buhle, Hunter's first wife, are her parents.

Neal, 25, a native of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, just received his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania. In Washington, he is employed by Georgetown University Law Center. His parents are Jackson Hole doctors Mary C. and William "Bill" C. Neal.
