‘I Feel Terrible’: Obama Calls Military Couple to Apologize for Wedding Snafu

After his Hawaii golf game forced a military couple of move the location of their wedding ceremony with less than 24 hours notice, President Barack Obama called them to personally apologize. And CNN has the video.

“Listen. Congratulations on your wedding. I feel terrible. Nobody told us,” Obama can be heard telling Army Captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. as they stand at the altar.


“If they had just mentioned that they were going to have a wedding on the 16th hole, we would have skipped the 16th hole,” he added. “I hope the wedding went OK anyway.”

The couple told the president it was not a problem and ended up relocating their ceremony to a nearby spot where they could actually watch him play golf. The White House has said Obama was not aware that his game would affect the wedding.

“Sorry for the change of plans. But sounds like you guys are gonna have a great wedding and at least you will have a good story to tell,” Obama said before ending the call. “Congratulations and thank you both for your service.”
