Vice President Joe Biden's office has announced that his daughter has married a Pennsylvania doctor at a ceremony in Delaware.

A news release from Biden's office says 30-year-old Ashley Blazer Biden was married Saturday to Dr. Howard David Krein in Wilmington. She is a social worker for the state of Delaware and he is a plastic surgeon in Philadelphia.

The News-Journal reported that the couple was exchanging vows at the same church where she was baptized, St. Joseph on the Brandywine, in a joint Jewish-Catholic ceremony. The private ceremony was being followed by a reception at the Biden residence in Greenville.

 

 

Vice President Biden and his wife Jill issued a statement late Saturday saying, "We're happy to welcome Howard into our family, and we wish them all the best in their new life together."
