A military couple who were due to get married on a Hawaii golf course were forced to reschedule their venue at a 24-hour notice when US President Barack Obama decided to play a round of golf.
The two captains in the US Army, Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr, were scheduled to wed on the 16th hole of the Kaneohe Klipper course in Hawaii.
To the soldiers' bad luck, a day before the actual ceremony, during their wedding rehearsal, the soldiers were requested to move their desired venue for nuptials, reported the Guardian.
The much sought after venue due to its ocean views is located on a military base that is very close to where the US President is presently vacationing with his family.
The couple eventually decided to tie the knot at a lawn outside the home of the commanding officer of the military officer.
After inviting the US President and informing him of their planned wedding, the couple had received a letter from the US President expressing his regret.
"It was kind of ironic they got the letter from him and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him. It was emotional, especially for her. She's the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned," Jamie McCarthy, the sister of the bride, told Bloomberg.
The venue is known to be Obama's favourite whenever he visits Hawaii and people are usually informed well in advance to make alternative plans to facilitate the US President.
A friend of the couple revealed that upon hearing of the mishap, Obama allegedly called the couple, and apologized and congratulated them, which "made their day".
