And the bride wore White House: Naomi Biden joins rare tradition

Wedding bells are ready to sound at the White House as Washington prepares for one of its most high-profile – yet private – wedding ceremonies.

Naomi Biden, the eldest granddaughter of President and Jill Biden, is set to marry fiance Peter Neal on Saturday.

The wedding, the first ever held on the South Lawn, is a once-in-a-lifetime event at the White House.

"It's not a regular occurrence," White House Historical Association historian Lina Mann told ITK. "I mean, only 18 in our over 200-year existence."

But, aside from the date and South Lawn location, practically every other "I do" detail of Naomi Biden's wedding has been kept under wraps.

 Keeping nuptials private has traditionally been how the White House handled couples marrying there. 

It's not until the later half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that you see a lot of buzz and national attention drawn to these White House marriages."
