President Obama visits couple on their wedding day. Brian and Stephanie were getting married on Sunday at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, when the President stepped in for an unexpected, yet extremely delightful visit for the young couple.
The President was playing a round of golf in San Diego at the same location Brian and Stephanie were having their wedding ceremony. The two newlyweds knew that the President was in town but had no idea that he was playing a round of golf at the exact same resort.
They noticed that security was extra tight that Sunday afternoon and thought there might be a chance that the President would be somewhere nearby. Much to their delight, they soon discovered that he was downstairs at the Torrey Pines Golf Course.
The couple, along with their guests and family members waited for hours, hoping for a chance that the President will come up to greet and congratulate them on their day of joy. As they were watching from the second-story window, somebody shouted that President Obama was about to finish his game.
As soon as it was announced that he was about to end his final round of golf, the bride and groom stormed out, hoping to get the chance to shake the President’s hand and take a few pictures of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
The bride grabbed her dress and started running in high heels, with the groom right behind her. Their families and guests were taking countless photos at that point, as the President was now heading their way to ‘crash’ the wedding in the most surprising and joyous manner.
Stephanie said she was in tears, crying and running in the direction of the President, who took the time for a few photos. He also shook hands with all those present and congratulated the newlyweds.
He also wished them good luck and harmony in their marriage and after a few more photos with guests and family members, he left the Torrey Pines Golf Course. It is unclear why the President was in San Diego, as no public appearances or speeches were scheduled for him in the area.
Nonetheless, for this young couple, his visit was an incredible addition to an important and happy occasion in their life. While the President did not remain for the whole ceremony, his unexpected visit has left Brian and Stephanie with great memories to share with their loved ones and future offspring.
