Forget Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, President Barack Obama is the greatest wedding crasher of them all.
When Stephanie and Brian began to plan their wedding, they had no idea at the time that their San Diego location would bring them close to the President, who would be golfing in the area that day.
The venue was Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, and of course – they had no idea the President would be so close to where they were exchanging vows.
Obama’s final putt happened to be right behind their wedding altar and when he’d finished his putt, he walked right up to their wedding party and started shaking hands with excited guests who were waiting for the ceremony to begin.
When the bride saw the President shaking hands with her bridal party, she rushed from her bridal suite to meet him – followed closely by her husband-to-be.
”I was just hoping that they’d notice my wedding dress,” she said. ”And it would just be the last chance … You don’t get this chance very often so why not just go for it.”
Stephanie reveals she was in tears while the crowd cheered her on. When he finally met up with her, he congratulated the newlyweds on their wedding. Then he offered the groom some important advice.
So THIS happened at yesterday’s wedding… 😆 The President (OMGOMGOMGOMG) was in San Diego this weekend at the venue where we were photographing a gorgeous wedding, and we CAUGHT.IT.ALL. I’m writing the full story on the blog right now, but wanted to get this posted ASAP. Stay tuned!!!!! #POTUS #kindafreakinoutrightnow #eeeeeeee! -E #theyoungrens @lodgetorreypines @mintweddings
”He saw my foot on the train of the wedding dress and he says, ‘Oops, can’t put your foot on the wedding dress there.’ Little piece of advice, pretty funny,” Brian said.
