For a day, President Barack Obama was the wedding-crasher-in-chief.

Stephanie and Brian Tobe had been scheduled to wed at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego and had been aware that the president would be finishing up his day on the green right before their big event was slated to begin. But as the couple was getting ready for the ceremony to start, they were told that Obama was still on the last hole — “which happens to fall right in front of the ceremony site — as in, right behind the altar,” Jeff and Erin Youngren, who photographed the wedding, wrote on their blog.

They couldn’t go out on their balcony, so they pressed against the window, watching everything unfold below,” the photographers wrote on their blog. The president ended up shaking the hand of all 60 people at the wedding.
