Days after Naomi Biden married Peter Neal at the White House, President Joe Biden’s granddaughter talks about her special celebration in a new exclusive interview with Fashion.

Naomi, the 28-year-old daughter of Hunter Biden and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle, married Neal, 25, in front of 250 relatives and friends on the South Lawn of the White House. Although the wedding had a very presidential venue, Naomi, who wore a long-sleeved lace Ralph Lauren dress for the occasion, told the magazine that she had always planned to hold her wedding at a relative’s home, noting that her close relationship with grandparents President Biden and first lady Jill Biden “hasn’t changed much” in recent years.

“We’re so close to our families, so we always knew we’d be getting married in someone’s backyard,” Naomi, a Washington, D.C., attorney, shared in the online story, which will appear in the January/February print issue of the magazine. “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].”

There were also unique challenges for the day, Naomi said. “It’s hard to ask people for their social security number on their RSVP,” she explained.

The lawyer also shared that her grandmother gave her important advice for planning her big day. “She really stressed to me that every time I worry about wedding stuff, take a deep breath and remember it’s just a day about Peter and me and being around the people we love,” said they. “She taught me so much about being independent and self-sufficient. But that doesn’t mean you can’t also be a selfless and very loyal partner.”

Naomi revealed that Neal, who is an associate at Georgetown Law’s Center on National Security, popped the question in a Sept. 21, 2021 Instagram post. Alongside a photo of her and Neal, showing off her new diamond ring, she wrote: “Forever.”

The Columbia Law School grad revealed that she would tie the knot on the South Lawn in July — a first for White House weddings.

“Sooo not sure how best to update, but that should have been done weeks ago… but we finally figured out where the ceremony will be… and much to the relief of the Secret Service and with the approval of the dogs …we’re getting married on the South Lawn!” Naomi tweeted at the time. “Couldn’t be more excited.”
