Alice and Nicholas
President Theodore Roosevelt held his daughter Alice Roosevelt's wedding to Congressman Nicholas Longworth in 1906 in the East Room of the White House. The Associated Press described the wedding as a “national event.”
President Cleveland
President Grover Cleveland was the first and only president to marry while in office, marrying Frances Folsom, a 21-year-old, in 1886. The relationship between the two — who had a 27-year age difference — dated back to the day Folsom was born because her father was Cleveland's partner-in-law.
Tricia and Edward
Tricia Nixon, the second daughter of President Richard Nixon, married Edward Finch Cox in the Rose Garden at the White House on June 12, 1971. It was the first White House wedding to be held outside, and there were over 400 guests and 700 members of the media.

President Barack Obama let former White House photographer, Pete Souza, get married to his wife Patti Lease in 2013. A White House statement said it was a small affair “and they were joined by roughly 35 family members and friends.”
