Naomi Biden, US President Joe Biden's granddaughter, has announced that her wedding ceremony will be held on the South Lawn of the White House.

Naomi, 28, tweeted a photo of the lawn with a view of the Washington Monument on Thursday with the caption, "Sooo not sure how best to update but was supposed to do so weeks ago… but we have finally figured out where the ceremony will be…and much to the relief of secret service and with the dogs' endorsement… we'll be getting married on the South Lawn! Couldn't be more excited."

Wedding bells have not rung at the White House since former President Barack Obama's photographer Pete Souza married Patti Lease in the Rose Garden in 2013. There have been 18 documented weddings at the White House hosted by presidents and first ladies, according to the White House Historical Association. 

Naomi is Hunter Biden's eldest daughter and one of the president's seven grandchildren.

She's a lawyer at Arnold & Porter, and her fiance, Peter Neal, is a 24-year-old law student at the University of Pennsylvania. They're tying the knot on Novemeber 19, according to CNN.

Neal proposed to Naomi during Labor Day weekend of 2021 in his hometown of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They announced their engagement in an Instagram post with a simple caption: "Forever."

The couple initially revealed they intended on marrying at the White House in April. 

"Peter and I are endlessly grateful to my Nana and Pop for the opportunity to celebrate our wedding at the White House," she wrote on Twitter at the time. "We can't wait to make our commitment to one another official and for what lies ahead.
