Mosteller works in the White House as the director of Oval Office operations for Obama and Mahshie is the First Lady’s trip coordinator. Biden tweeted out a photo from the ceremony captioning it, “Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys.” The photo was quick to go viral with over 44,000 retweets and 143,000 likes (as of press). Jill Biden also responded to the photo sharing “Love is love!” The Vice President has always been very vocal about his support for same-sex marriage, even before he was in the White House. “It’s the civil rights of our day. It’s the issue of our day,” Biden has said about the social issue.
