- Naomi Biden walked across the South Lawn of the White House on Saturday with a long, flowing veil to marry her longtime partner Peter Neal. President Joe Biden hosted guests for his granddaughter Naomi’s wedding at the White House on Saturday.
- Naomi Biden, a 28-year-old Washington lawyer, married Peter Neal, 25, a law graduate, on the White House South Lawn, which was adorned with white flowers.

- Rare White House weddings. In 200 years, there have been 18 White House weddings. Richard Nixon’s daughter Tricia in 1971, Lyndon Johnson’s daughter Lynda in 1967, and Barack Obama’s official photographer Pete Souza in 2013 were among them.
- There have also been weddings for nieces, a grandniece, a son, and first ladies’ brothers. Grover Cleveland married while in office. Some marriages allowed media coverage, while others didn’t.
- The White House Correspondents Association was “extremely unhappy” that the White House denied their request for press coverage of Naomi Biden’s wedding.
- “White House weddings have been covered by the press throughout history, and the first family’s wish for privacy must be balanced,” the WHCA board said.
