Natalie Heimel and her fiancé Edward Mallue Jr, both Army captains, had their perfect wedding planned near the 16th hole at Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course. They invited the president to the wedding because they knew he vacationed there.
Within hours of each other, the president first declined the invitation and then his staff informed them they had to move the ceremony because the president was playing golf there.
As we all know, even beheadings don’t interfere with Obama’s golf game.
The bride was very disappointed.
“It was kind of ironic they got the letter from them and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him,” Jamie McCarthy, Mallue’s sister, told Bloomberg Politics. “It was emotional, especially for her — she’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”
After Bloomberg Politics placed a call, Mr. Obama called the bride personally and apologized.
The bride was happy. She said it “made their day” though it’s hard to understand why.
