Here comes the bride! Naomi Biden showed off her breathtaking Ralph Lauren wedding dress on the winter 2022 cover Fashion.
The 28-year-old attorney, who married University of Pennsylvania graduate Peter Neal on Saturday, Nov. 19, posed next to her grandmother, First Lady Jill Biden, in the dainty number featuring a high neckline with lace accents and a tulle skirt. Jill, 71, for her part, featured on the front cover of the issue – which was published on Tuesday, Nov. 22 – in a Reem Acra dress covered in a crystal net.
Naomi said “I do” to Neal on the South Lawn of the White House. The occasion marked the first wedding at the historic property in nine years. (Since 1800, only 19 weddings have been held at the Washington, DC estate.) Naomi’s 25-year-old husband looked dapper in a navy three-piece Ralph Lauren suit.
“There’s so much beauty and history in this place, and we really wanted to honor that,” she said Fashion. Naomi then joked, “It’s hard to ask people for their social security number on their RSVP.”
The legal expert said the venue also celebrated the importance of family: “We are so close to our families, so we always knew we were getting married in someone’s backyard. I think if my dad wasn’t president it would probably be their house in Wilmington or Peter’s family’s backyard in Jackson [Wyoming].”
After the ceremony, guests were invited to the White House for a celebratory reception. For the soiree, Naomi donned a strapless Reem Acra dress paired with elegant sheer gloves. Later in the evening, she changed again and danced the night away in a beaded Markarian mini dress.
Naomi and Jill worked together in planning the big day, as the president’s granddaughter shared Fashion: “[Jill] been super involved.
The first lady added: “Naomi has a strong sense of herself and had a vision for her wedding… It was nice to see her find so much joy in all the details.”
Naomi is the daughter of Hunter Biden and Kathleen Buhl. The young lawyer met Neal in 2018 after being set up by mutual friends. The couple currently lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave with President Joe Biden.
“When I was in high school, we lived so close together, and they were at every sports game and our school games. We still do the same things. It’s always been that way,” Naomi said Fashion.
