WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden is in Delaware this week to get ready for his daughter Ashley's wedding, with the reception to take place at his home, the White House said on Tuesday.
"As any father would, he takes this matter very seriously and looks forward to it with great happiness for his daughter and his future son-in-law," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters at a briefing dominated by tensions in Syria.
"And I have no details on the dress," he said.
Ashley, a 30 year-old social worker, is the vice president's only daughter with his wife Jill.
He had three children with his first wife Neilia, who was killed in a car crash along with their infant daughter Naomi shortly after his election to the U.S. Senate in 1972. Their two sons, Beau and Hunter, were also in the car but survived.
Beau is now Attorney General of Delaware and second son Hunter is also a lawyer.
