The President’s Granddaughter Marries at the White House

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Until Saturday, it had been more than a decade since a presidential family member had married at the White House. Alice Roosevelt’s wedding in 1906 was the last in this century, and Jenna Bush was the last in 2008. However, with the Bidens, it was a new era for the White House.

Naomi Biden married Peter Neal on Saturday morning, just over two years after they first met. The ceremony was a private event, and the cost of the wedding was paid for by the Bidens.

Naomi and Neal were both recent graduates of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Naomi is now an associate at the law firm Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C., while Neal is an associate at the law center on national security at Georgetown University.

The wedding was held on the South Lawn of the White House, which has been decorated in white and green floral garlands. The wedding took place around 11 a.m. EDT, with the ceremony lasting about an hour. Afterward, guests were treated to a luncheon on the lawn.

Naomi’s wedding dress was an ivory off-the-shoulder ballgown style dress by Ralph Lauren. It included a white lace overlay, and was worn with a long white veil. She carried a white bouquet with green stems. The ceremony was attended by 250 guests, including Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Ted Kaufman of Delaware.

Naomi and Neal met through a mutual friend in New York City. After two days of dating, they were engaged.
