SAN DIEGO ( — A couple got quite the wedding surprise on their big day when President Obama showed up and even posed in some pictures.

CBS 8, a San Diego affiliate, reports that the president was playing golf near the area where an altar had been set up for now-newlyweds Brian and Stephanie Tobe.

After he finished his game, Molly Elizabeth Nelson, a catering sales manager, said Obama started shaking hands.

“He finished on eighteen and I heard he had a pretty good round. We were all clapping and expected him to ride off. He did not, he started shaking hands,” Nelson told CBS 8.

The incident at The Lodge at Torrey Pines happened over the weekend while Obama was wrapping up his whirlwind trip to the Southland.

“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,” the couple’s wedding photographers Erin and Jeff Youngren said in an Instagram post.

Obama even posed in some of their wedding pictures.
