President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden hosted a private White House wedding for his granddaughter, welcoming about 250 guests on the South Lawn and opening the State Dining Room for a celebratory lunch.

The president’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, married Peter Neal in the 19th wedding to be held on the grounds of the executive mansion -- a day before Joe Biden, the oldest sitting president in US history, turns 80.
