Newlyweds Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. certainly won't be forgetting their recent nuptials any time soon, thanks to a pretty unusual turn of events involving President Barack Obama himself.
The couple, both captains in the Army, was informed during their wedding rehearsal on Saturday at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course in Hawaii that they'd actually have to move their wedding -- which was scheduled for the very next day.
"It was emotional, especially for her -- she's the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned," Mallue's sister, Jamie McCarthy, tells Bloomberg Politics.
Though it is unclear whether the White House was informed about the wedding in advance, Obama obviously felt bad afterwards. He later put in a personal call to the bride herself.
"He apologized and congratulated them," McCarthy shares. "[It was a] wonderful talk."
Thankfully, the wedding ceremony went off without a hitch in Hawaii on Sunday.
Since the President's affinity for golf is well-known, anyone planning an event at the course when the president is in town is warned about the "potential for last-minute shuffling," Bloomberg Politics reports, and other wedding sites were ready to go. The couple ended up getting married at the lawn near the home of Colonel Eric Schaefer -- the commanding officer of the base -- which according to K Bay Catering manager Naile Brennan, who was in charge of handling logistics for the wedding, is actually a "much prettier and much nicer venue."
