President
Obama’s latest ‘executive order’ saw a military couple booted off a golf
course where they planned to get married so he could play a round with
his friends.
Army
Captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr had their wedding moved
off an Oahu, Hawaii Marine Corps base golf course on Sunday after the
president decided to play the course at the last minute. 
The
bride and groom learned of the decision the day before their ceremony
was planned to take place at the 16th tee box of the Kaneohe Klipper
Golf Course, which has picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean. 

Priority: President Obama played the course Sunday with friends, and later called the couple to apologize for the inconvenience. Pictured above playing golf on December 24 at the same course with the Malaysian prime minister

Ironically,
the couple knew the president would be in town and sent him an invite
on a whim, and received a polite decline just hours before they learned
they could no longer get married at their desired location. 
‘It
was emotional, especially for [Heimel]—she’s the bride and in less than
24 hours they had to change everything they had planned,’ the groom’s
sister Jamie McCarthy told Bloomberg.
The
wedding instead took place on the green lawn of the Marine Corps base
where the golf course is located, and many attendants posted pictures of
the ceremony online with the hashtag #ThanksObama.

President
Obama and his family are currently vacationing on his home state of
Hawaii for the Christmas holidays, and he has played golf six times in
the past nine days. 
Yesterday he took to the course with friends Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb.
However, it
appears the president didn’t know that his golf game interrupted a
military wedding, since he reached out to the newlyweds to apologize. In
a picture posted to Instagram, the couple were seen at the ceremony
answering a call from the commander in chief.
‘He apologized and congratulated them,’ McCarthy said. 
‘We were all there, it was perfect,’ she added . ‘Made their day.’
According
to Naile Brennan, manager of the catering company which worked on the
wedding, anyone planning a wedding at the course are warned that the
president can interrupt events when he is in town.
