WASHINGTON: President Joe Biden welcomed guests to the White House yesterday to celebrate the wedding of his granddaughter, Naomi.
The 28-year-old Washington-based lawyer married Peter Neal, 25, a law graduate, on the South Lawn, White House, in a ceremony witnessed by about 250 guests.
Naomi Biden is the daughter of the President’s son, Hunter.
“It has been wonderful to see Naomi grow up, find out who she is and create an amazing life for herself,” President and First Lady Jill Biden said in a statement.
The wedding was not the first ever held at the White House.
According to the White House Historical Society, a total of 18 weddings have been held at the mansion, including the wedding of Richard Nixon’s daughter Tricia in 1971 and Barack Obama’s official photographer Pete Souza in 2013.
But this is the first time the president’s granddaughter has held a ceremony there.
The White House said in a brief statement that Biden hosted a wedding luncheon for the family and wedding party in the State Dining Room, and a reception.
