SAN DIEGO –A bride and groom are supposed to avoid each other before their wedding, but one couple broke that rule.

Brian and Stephanie Tobe were getting married at The Lodge at Torrey Pines which overlooks the Torrey Pines Golf Course.

That just happened to be where President Obama was playing golf that day.

The bride and groom were still getting ready when their photographer said the president was nearby shaking hands..

That’s when the bride ignored the wedding day myths about not seeing the groom and grabbed her husband to be.

They went out the door, worked their way through the crowd, got searched by security, and took a couple pictures with the President.

The President advised the groom to not step on the bride’s dress.
