It’s a nice day for a White House wedding.
Naomi Biden, Granddaughter of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, married longtime partner Peter Neal Nov. 19 in front of 250 guests, right on the South Lawn. It marked the 19th time that the White House has been used for a wedding and the first time one took place in that specific outdoor area, per CNN.
“It has been a joy to watch Naomi grow, discover who she is, and carve out such an incredible life for herself,” the PresidentFirst Lady said in a White House statement. “Now, we are filled with pride to see her choose Peter as her husband and we’re honored to welcome him to our family. We wish them days full of laughter and a love that grows deeper with every passing year.”
The ceremony was held in the early afternoon, on a cold but clear day. It was closed to the media. Two sources confirmed to CNN that guests received COVID-19 testing upon their arrival. They also had blankets and shawls on their seats in order to stay warm.
