Ashley Biden, the daughter of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, married a Jewish doctor.

Ashley Biden, 31, and Howard Krein were married Saturday in Delaware in an interfaith Jewish-Catholic ceremony at the Biden family's church. Biden and Krein reportedly dated for a year before they became engaged in September.

Biden is a social worker. Krein is an ear, nose and throat specialist at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

"We're happy to welcome Howard into our family, and we wish them all the best in their new life together," said a statement from the vice president and his wife, Jill, issued after the wedding.

The Rev. David F. Murphy, a Roman Catholic priest, officiated at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church in Greenville, Del., with Rabbi Joseph Foreman assisting, The New York Times reported.

The couple will reside in Philadelphia.

Hallie Biden, married to the vice president's son, Beau, is also Jewish.
