First Lady Jill Biden is really excited about the wedding
First lady Jill Biden is so excited about the weddings. She said she’s excited to see her granddaughter “planning her wedding, making her choices, becoming, you know, just coming into her own, and she’s just so beautiful,” according to AP.
In the year 2013, Barack Obama’s chief White House photographer, Pete Souza married Lease in a private ceremony in the Rose Garden after 17 years of being a couple.
“He kept pestering me about why we hadn’t gotten married,” Pete Souza had then said talking about Barack Obama. The White House released the recipe, but home bakers and food critics said it produced a “soupy mess”.
Anthony Rodham, a brother of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and Nicole Boxer, a daughter of then-California Sen. Barbara Boxer, exchanged wedding vows in the Rose Garden during a Private Ceremony.
