It’s already been a year since Hunter Biden’s daughter said “I do” to Peter Neal, and to celebrate, Naomi Biden shared an eight-minute public tribute to the lavish ceremony held privately at the People’s House.
In a professionally produced video that Naomi posted Sunday on social media, the radiant bride can be seen readying herself in the Oval Office and playfully running across the White House lawn, her custom Ralph Lauren flowing behind her.
As churchbells ring and a choir sings, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill can be heard welcoming guests to the White House and expressing their love for their new son-in-law.
Grandpa Joe notes that he owes the American people “an enormous, enormous debt” for allowing him the “great honor” of living in the White House, adding, “but it’s never quite felt like home until today.”
“The glossy South Lawn ceremony took place on a 40-degree day last November and celebrated the bride, 29, and groom, 26 and their families in regal, but traditional American style,” DailyMail.com reports.
The video is nothing short of a high-fashion fairytale wedding. Naomi dons no fewer than three designer outfits, and even the father of the bride, Hunter, appeared to clean up nicely for the occasion.
So beautiful is the tribute, one might forget the outrage that surrounded the reported $300,000 affair, held at a time when the American people were struggling under “Bidenomics” to make ends meet.
CNN reported at the time that the event, which was closed to the press, was “a kickoff of sorts for the tight-knit Bidens to begin earnest discussions over whether Joe Biden should run for a second term” — exactly what every bride hopes for on her big day.
White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre defended the media blackout, explaining, “They want it to be private, and we’re going to respect their wishes. We’re going to provide a photo and a statement from the president and first lady after the wedding.”
When Vogue magazine published its exclusive spread with images of the bride, her groom, and grandmother, the Washington Post accused the White House of lying.
“I spent four years covering the Trump WH and two years covering the Biden WH,” The Post’s Ashley Parker wrote on what was then still Twitter. “What’s fascinating is that they both lie, albeit in [very] different ways. Trump team was shameless, whereas Biden team is too cute by half.”
“Happy Anniversary!” wrote one user on X in response to Naomi’s video. “Has Ashley Parker ever gotten over not being invited?”
But scandals aside, folks were quick to toast the bride and groom on their first anniversary.
“Simply gorgeous!” exclaimed one user. “Happy Anniversary to the beautiful couple. Wishing you many years of love and joy!”
