Stephanie and Brian Tobe's marriage is off to a very lucky start.

The couple was getting ready to walk down the aisle at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California, at the same time President Obama was golfing at the Torrey Pines course. Their guests sat outside and watched as he finished his round of golf. Then, Obama approached the guests and began shaking hands, prompting the wedding photographer to call the bride and groom and tell them to get down there as soon as they could. Of course, they couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet the President, so they ran outside prior to the nuptials.

"I actually started crying. I was crying as I was running up there because I couldn't believe – you're just overwhelmed with emotion," Stephanie said.

President Obama congratulated them, took photos, and warned Brian not to step on the bride's dress. Watch the video above to see the amazing photos of the soon-to-be husband and wife with the President of the United States on their big day!

The Lodge at Torrey Pines is one of the most picturesque, luxurious wedding venues in San Diego, and we're not surprised President Obama is a fan of its golf course! Discover how the five-star property works to develop a menu that's perfectly customized to the newlyweds' tastes.
