White House Rose Garden
The White House Rose Garden is a garden in the West Wing area of the White House. Many presidental news conferences have taken place in it, as well as many White House-affiliated marriages, such as Richard Nixon's daughter Tricia, marrying Edward Cox in 1971.
The Rose Garden was begun in 1913 by Ellen Wilson, wife of Woodrow Wilson, on the site of a previous colonial garden. The garden was later redesigned by John F. Kennedy to allow for outdoor ceremonies.
