President Joe Biden’s eldest niece Naomi Biden is going to be part of a very elite club when she gets married at her grandfather’s current residence of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue over the weekend. The 28-year-old daughter of Hunter Biden and Kathleen Buhle will be tying the knot with fiancé Peter Neal at the White House, making history as only the 19th couple to be married at America’s most famous address.
“Peter and I are endlessly grateful to my Nana and Pop for the opportunity to celebrate our wedding at the White House,” Naomi wrote on Twitter in April 2022. “We can’t wait to make our commitment to one another official and for what lies ahead.” The post came after the original wedding announcement on September 2021, which included a photo of the White House. “Sooo not sure how best to update but was supposed to do so weeks ago…but we have finally figured out where the ceremony will be,” Naomi tweeted, “And much to the relief of secret service and with the dogs’ endorsement…we’ll be getting married on the South Lawn! Couldn’t be more excited.”
The last wedding that took place there was in 2013, when President Barack Obama’s official White House photographer, Pete Souza, said “I do.” Before that, Jenna Bush got hitched there in 2008.
