Naomi Biden told Vogue magazine about planning the first White House wedding in nearly 10 years after the administration said she and Peter Neal wanted a “private” event.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended Vogue’s coverage and became agitated when asked why there was an interview and photo shoot, when she had said last week that there would be no press coverage of the wedding , as the couple wanted a ‘private’ one. event.

“This was not a national security meeting. This was not an economic meeting,” she said at her press conference on Tuesday. “This was a wedding for young couples with their friends and family. This is what this was, this is what happened here on Saturday. So and secondly, just to be clear, Vogue was not present at the wedding. They weren’t there.’

Jean-Pierre was defensive when answering DailyMail.com’s questions about the matter, saying Vogue was deliberately reluctant to release their photos.

She pointed out that the photo shoot was on Thursday – two days before the wedding – and photos from the wedding were made public.

Vogue did a portrait shoot in the green room on Thursday afternoon before the wedding. I also want to remind you that many photos were released to the public on Saturday after the wedding for everyone. Vogue actually held their photos, they embargoed them until today. So that it gives enough time to get the photos out in the public sphere,” she said.

The White House released a photo on Saturday of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden with Naomi and Peter at the wedding, which took place on the South Lawn of the White House. Event planner Bryan Rafanelli, who led the festivities, also released several photos.

Naomi Biden told Vogue that they would have had a backyard wedding even if her grandfather wasn’t president.

“We’re so close with our families, so we always knew we’d get married in someone’s backyard,” Naomi told Vogue. “I think if my dad wasn’t president, it would probably be their home in Wilmington or Peter’s family’s backyard in Jackson. [Wyoming].’

The piece features portraits of Noami in her Ralph Lauren-designed wedding gown, taken in the State Rooms of the White House. The dress is inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress.

“Like any little girl, I had a vision in my head — it was Grace Kelly’s dress that I loved,” Naomi said.

There’s also a photo of her and Peter at their wedding reception, where they stand on a ladder to cut their eight-tier wedding cake. Naomi put on a Reem Acra sheath dress for the evening.

Naomi Biden, 28, is the president’s oldest grandchild and the first of her generation of Bidens to marry. But when relatives of other presidents — including Tricia Nixon and Lynda Bird Johnson — had White House weddings, they were open to the media, including photo and video coverage.

The bride was led down the aisle to the Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” by her father Hunter Biden and mother Kathleen Buhle (the couple divorced in 2017).

Every wedding has its logistical challenges, but the White House comes with additional challenges. Guests were required to provide their social security number and date of birth for a Secret Service background check. All guests were also COVID tested on Saturday morning.

“It’s hard to ask people for their social security number on their RSVP,” Naomi told Vogue.

She also told the magazine she was surprised that Peter was “a bit of a bridezilla” and “obsessed with all the details.”

She said Jill Biden, whom the grandchildren call “Nana,” was also heavily involved.

Naomi and Peter moved into the White House when their DC apartment lease expired. She and their mini Australian Shepherd, Charlie, live on the third floor.

“I try to remind myself it’s the White House, but it also normalizes over time,” Naomi said.

“Now we do wedding planning together and she’s super involved,” Naomi says of the first lady.

Wedding details were plotted over a glass of wine – Cabernet for Dr. Biden, Sancerre for Naomi – or attending barre and SoulCycle classes together in Georgetown.

“Naomi has a strong sense of herself and had a vision before her marriage,” said Jill Biden. “It was nice to see her having so much fun with all the details.”

Naomi and Peter were surrounded by 250 family and friends on the South Lawn for their chilly but sunny wedding day. Peter also wore Ralph Lauren, a three-piece suit.

The three bridesmaids – Naomi’s sisters Finnegan and Maisy and Peter’s sister Betsy – who wore navy blue dresses. Finnegan and Maisy wore blazers over their formal dresses. Peter’s brother Robert was a witness.

The decor was all natural – green bushes and white flowers, including roses and hydrangeas.

Naomi’s father Hunter Biden sat in the front row, holding his son Beau and sitting next to his wife Melissa Cohen. Kathleen Buhle, mother of the bride, sat on Hunter’s other side.

Naomi’s cousins ​​Natalie and Hunter Jr. — the children of the late Beau Biden — were also in attendance. So was Ashley Biden, Joe and Jill’s daughter and aunt of the bride.

After the 11 a.m. ceremony on the South Lawn on Saturday morning, the Bidens hosted a luncheon for friends and family in the State Dining Room of the White House.

“I know she was awake when I planned to serve turkey sandwiches for lunch,” Naomi said of her grandmother.

They added chicken pot pie to the menu, which was her father Hunter’s favorite dish.

Friends returned to the White House Saturday night for a celebratory reception with dessert and dancing.

Jill Biden wore a gold-embroidered seafoam blue Reem Acra dress, which she wears on the digital cover of Vogue.

Naomi and Peter climbed a ladder to cut into an eight-layer eight-layer lemon cake with buttercream icing.

The dessert bar also included apple pie (the groom’s cake) and Graeter’s favorite chocolate ice cream from President Biden. “He was a Breyers guy all along, but we got him to upgrade to Graeters,” Naomi said.

Naomi’s wedding was the 19th known to have been held at the White House and the first at the South Lawn. Naomi was the first presidential grandchild to marry in the White House.

The last wedding to take place at the White House was on October 19, 2013, when Pesident Barack Obama’s photographer Pete Souza married Patti Lease in the rose garden. Obama attended.

The last family weddings were on May 28, 1994 when Anthony Rodham – Hillary Clinton’s brother – married Nicole Boxer during Bill Clinton’s term in office.

First daughter Tricia Nixon married Ed Cox in the rose garden on June 12, 1971 in one of the more famous White House weddings. Her father, President Richard Nixon, walked her down the aisle.

There is also a long history of presidential children getting married or having receptions there. James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, John Tyler, and Ulysses S. Grant all saw weddings during their tenure.

Modern first daughters Chelsea Clinton and Jenna Hager were married elsewhere.

Chelsea’s father was not president at the time of her marriage. Jenna’s father was and George W. Bush hosted a reception for his daughter at the White House, even though her wedding took place in their home state of Texas.
