SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama created a memorable scene for a San Diego couple, when he crashed their wedding taking place on the same golf course he was playing on.

Obama was visiting the area Sunday and finished up the 18th hole of the Torrey Pines Golf Course when he decided to take pictures and shake hands with onlookers.

The couple, Stephanie and Brian Tobe were on the lookout for the president hoping for a chance to take a picture with the Commander-in-Chief during their wedding.

"Between Stephanie getting her makeup done, she kept peeking out the window looking," wedding photographer Jeff Youngren told ABC News.

As the wedding party lined up to meet the president, the newlyweds quickly rushed over before it was too late. Stephanie arrived there first with Brian right behind.

"I've never seen a bride run so fast in such an elegant gown," Youngren mentioned.

"Right when we saw him, Stephanie got to him first, Brian told ABC News.

"He said congrats to Stephanie right away. And at that moment he pointed out that my foot was actually on the train or the trail of her wedding dress on the ground."

"He says nope you know...you can't step on the wedding dress," Brian said, adding how Obama is "so relaxed."

The wedding was delayed less than an hour for the whole affair, the couple said according to NBC San Diego and that meeting the president took the edge off for the rest of the ceremony.

"It was a life moment that none of us will ever forget," wrote second wedding photographer Erin Youngren on her official site.
