President Joe Biden and the first lady Jill Biden are to host a rare wedding reception at the White House for their granddaughter, Naomi.
The eldest Biden grandchild, 28, and her fiancé, Peter Neal, 24, will celebrate at perhaps the most exclusive venue in the US.
Writing on Instagram, the 28-year-old said: ‘Peter and I are endlessly grateful to my Nana and Pop for the opportunity to celebrate our wedding at the White House. We
can’t wait to make our commitment to one another official and for what lies ahead.’
The couple first met in New York City four years ago after getting set up on a date by a mutual friend. They got engaged in September while on a trip to Jackson Hole where Neal is originally from.
East Wing communications director Elizabeth Alexander confirmed the happy news, tweeting, “The President and First Lady will host the wedding reception for their granddaughter Naomi Biden and her fiancée Peter Neal at the White House on November 19, 2022.” She added, “The First Family, the couple, and their parents are still in the planning stages of all of the wedding festivities and look forward to announcing further details in the coming months.” The East Wing also confirmed that the family will be paying for the reception themselves, “consistent with other private events hosted by the First Family and following the traditions of previous White House wedding festivities in prior Administrations.”
The last wedding reception held at the White House was in June 2008 to mark the marriage of Jenna Bush to Henry Hager. The celebration took place two months after the couple got married on former President George W. Bush’s Crawford, Texas ranch.
