A San Diego couple getting married Sunday was in for a big surprise on their special day.

Brian and Stephanie Tobe were at The Lodge at Torrey Pines Sunday morning when they learned that President Obama would be there playing golf that day.

The wedding was scheduled for 4:30 p.m., and they heard Obama was on the course around noon while they were getting ready at The Lodge.

The couple's photographers, Erin and Jeff Youngren, wrote about the experience on their website:

Immediately, I switched lenses and starting asking secret service agents as they shoved down the line, "Can we please get a photo with the couple??? Can we please get a photo with the couple???"

I yelled back into my earpiece, "You need to hurry or he'll be gone!"

Brian and Stephanie burst from the hotel, Stephanie sprinting in her navy blue Nina heels and Monique Lhullier gown, their friends and family bust into cheers at seeing them, and this is what happened.

President Obama, you are my hero for taking a moment to make this a day when a beautiful couple not only got to marry the love of their lives but have the moment of their lives. Thank you — beyond words. Thank you!
