The couple was matched by friends
In a private ceremony paid for by the Biden family, the newlyweds exchanged vows in front of about 250 guests. According to NPR, the president and first lady Jill Biden (71) then invited family and wedding guests to lunch in the State Dining Room, the banquet hall of the White House.
Naomi Biden and Peter Neal, both lawyers, met on a date in New York in 2018 after being set up by mutual friends. The couple is known for their keen interest in politics.
Naomi Biden soon got in touch with it through her famous maiden name. Her husband also has experience in the industry, including as an intern at the White House when Joe Biden was vice president.
Already the 19th wedding in the White House
Naomi Biden is making history with her wedding, the 19th so far in the White House. Because: He is the first grandchild of a sitting US president to marry in the White House. Before, it was mostly their daughters. In particular, the weddings of the two presidential daughters became a national, almost royal event.
When Lynda Johnson (78), daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973) got married in 1967, the interest was so great that the ceremony was even broadcast live on television.
There was also great media interest in the wedding of Richard Nixon’s (1913-1994) daughter Tricia (76) in 1971. The pompous celebration was rounded off by a 150-kilogram wedding cake.
The 1886 marriage of Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) remains the only current president in the White House. (cd)
