President Barack Obama was finishing a game of golf on Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego on Sunday night around the time Brian and Stephanie Tobe’s wedding was set to start.
The bride-to-be wasted no time in picking up her wedding gown, hopping in an elevator, and running towards the 18th hole with her husband to be.
“Honestly, I’m normally a pretty shy person, but man, yesterday, for the wedding day and in that moment, I didn’t care about anything,” she told the station.
While the ceremony started late, the couple ultimately credited the president’s pep talk with taking “the edge off the rest of the wedding,” wrote NBC San Diego.
This story had a happier ending than the last couple who’s wedding plans coincided with the president’s golf schedule in 2014. Army captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. had to
change the location of their dream wedding after Obama decided to golf at the same time as their ceremony.
