Who is Peter Neal? Naomi Biden’s fiancé to host White House wedding
While President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, is set to be the center of attention at her wedding on Saturday, the ceremony also serves as an introduction for her fiancé, Peter Neal, to the broader American public.
In a ceremony largely kept secret beforehand, Naomi Biden, 28, and Neal, 25, will tie the knot in front of an exclusive list of guests 14 months after announcing their engagement on the South Lawn of the White House.
Naomi Biden, the daughter of Hunter Biden and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle, teased a glimpse of the upcoming nuptials on Thursday when she shared an Instagram Story post featuring a wreath of white roses pinned to an imposing gate.
For his part, Neal on Thursday shared a look of himself and his partner holding hands while standing in front of a chiffon-wrapped arch.
Captioning the geotagged image as if it was taken at the Marriage Bureau in Washington, D.C., Neal wrote, “I need to nail the money shot to secure the license to marry the Timer.”
As Neal marries into one of America’s most famous families, questions will no doubt be asked about his life and relationship with Naomi Biden.
A native of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Neal is the son of Dr. Mary C. Neal and William C. Neal, after The New York Times. Of his three siblings, brother Willie died in a roller skating accident in 2009.
Because the tragedy is a well-documented part of the Biden family history, Naomi Biden is actually named after the President’s firstborn daughter, who died in a car accident with Joe Biden’s first wife, Neilia, in 1972.
Naomi Biden and Neal entered a romantic relationship after being set up on a date by a mutual friend in New York City in 2018, according to the White House.
Neal proposed on September 4, 2021 with an emerald-cut diamond in a setting that included the band from his grandmother’s engagement ring, loudly The New York Times.
They also have careers together. While Naomi Biden is an associate at the law firm Arnold & Porter, Neal — who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School this year — is an associate at Georgetown Law’s Center on National Security.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, they also share a passion for politics. Because Naomi Biden was born into such an environment, Neal’s interest in politics led him to intern at the White House during former President Barack Obama’s administration, during which Joe Biden served as Vice President.
Neal later worked on Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated 2016 presidential campaign, an experience Neal later described as a “wild, wild” journey The New York Times.
In a now-deleted Instagram post following Donald Trump’s triumph over Clinton, Neal wrote, “Nothing comes easy and nobody understands that better than Hillary Clinton for all of us to take notes, buckle up, and follow our lead.”
The Clinton association will also be an issue at Neal’s wedding, as The New York Times has reported that revered planner Bryan Rafanelli, who oversaw the 2010 wedding of Hillary and Bill Clinton’s daughter Chelsea Clinton, will take the helm.
Neal, who was photographed spending time with his in-laws at the White House, showed his support for the current president well before the wedding. When Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election, Neal said in an Instagram post at the time that it marked “a new day in America.”
