The President’s nephew and the former housewife got married on Oct. 11, 2021, after w whirlwind courtship. King first introduced Owens to the world as “her man” on Instagram on Sept. 25.

Cuffe Biden Owens is an L.A.-based attorney, and he met St. Louis, Missouri-based Meghan O’Toole King on a dating app. 

“We connected on a dating app, texted for a day or two, then spent five straight hours on the phone the first time we spoke,” King shared with Brides. “By the time that call ended, Cuffe was booked and packed for a flight to St. Louis that took off in about eight hours. Within a week, we were back on the East Coast, meeting his family, and starting to plan our future together. We didn’t leave each other’s side for weeks.”

The wedding took place at Owens’ parents’ home in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. King and Owens chose their wedding date because it is also his parents’ wedding anniversary. President Joe Biden and his wife, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, attended King and Owens’ nuptials.
