Naomi Biden and Peter Neal married this morning in the first-ever White House wedding for a grandchild of a sitting president.
The attorney and eldest granddaughter of President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden exchanged vows with the University of Pennsylvania Law graduate in an outdoor ceremony on the morning of November 19, surrounded by friends and family.
The bride wore a long-sleeved ballgown featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline and a lace floral mockneck overlay. She finished the look with elegant pearl drop earrings and a sheer trailing veil, with her hair styled in a neat bun. Meanwhile, per Daily Mail, her bridesmaids layered blazers over their teal dresses for the winter ceremony.
The all-day celebration will also include a White House luncheon for the wedding party and family members, followed by an evening reception at the executive mansion with dessert and dancing.
“The wedding of Naomi Biden and Peter is a private family event. Naomi and Peter have asked that their wedding be a closed to the media and we are respecting their wishes. This is something that the couple has decided,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed yesterday.
Naomi is the eldest daughter of President Biden’s younger son, Hunter, and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle. She called the infamous Biden family meeting in 2019 where the president’s grandchildren encouraged him to run against Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Meanwhile, Neal previously served as a White House intern during Obama’s tenure, and he’s currently an associate at Georgetown Law Center on National Security.
The newlyweds got engaged in September 2021 in Peter’s hometown of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, after three years of dating. They were first introduced by a mutual friend in New York City in June 2018, while Naomi was in law school at Columbia University. They currently live on the third floor of the White House residence — one flight up from the First Family’s main living quarters, per People.
