President Joe Biden's granddaughter, Naomi Biden, got married at the White House on November 19 to Peter Neal. Their wedding, which took place on the South Lawn, was the 19th wedding at the historic home.
"Peter and I are endlessly grateful to my Nana and Pop for the opportunity to celebrate our wedding at the White House," Naomi Biden tweeted on April 4.
The presidential mansion has been a symbol of the US president's executive authority since John Adams and first lady Abigail moved in 218 years ago. Its iconic porticos, halls, and rooms have witnessed several administrations and countless guests, including tourists, celebrities, and heads of state. Past presidents have called it "the best public housing" and a "gilded cage".
After receiving either a high-profile invitation to an official event or clearance from a local representative for a tour, visitors to the mansion might be surprised at its modest scale, especially compared to the massive monuments and museums that sit a few blocks away.
