VP Joe Biden's Daughter Got Married!
Wearing an ivory silk mermaid Vera Wang gown and a romantic lace veil, Ashley Biden, a social worker and daughter of vice president Joe Biden, married Philadelphia surgeon Dr. Howard David Krein at the same Delaware church where she was baptized, the Associated Press reports.
After the ceremony at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Roman Catholic Church, the couple and an approximate 200 close friends and family gathered for a cozy reception at the Biden’s lakeside family home in Wilmington. According to People, guests enjoyed a backyard family-style dinner, which was prepared by the vice president himself!
As for the dress, an off-white stunner with a ruffled tulle hem and sheer straps, DelawareOnline.com reveals that Ashley kept it a secret from everyone, except her mother, Dr. Jill Biden, and maid of honor, her best friend since childhood.
The couple was introduced in 2010 by Ashley’s older brother, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, and got engaged on a cliff (at sunset!) in California’s Big Sur last October.
“We’re happy to welcome Howard into our family, and we wish them all the best in their new life together,” Joe and wife Dr. Jill Biden, said in a statement released by the vice president’s office.
As for the honeymoon, a family source tells People that Howard, 45, will surprise Ashley, 30, with their destination — we can’t wait to see where he’ll take her!
Congrats to Ashley and Howard!
