President Barack Obama apologized to a couple after his golf game in Hawaii forced the bride and groom to relocate their wedding.

According to a report out from US, the couple — both captains in the Army — had previously invited Obama to their wedding, knowing that he’d likely return to his family’s vacation spot for the holidays.

The couple, Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr., received an RSVP  from the President declining the invitation but sending them good wishes.Later they were told they’d have to relocate their wedding venue away from the golf course, which is located on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, because the President was planning to play golf.

“It was emotional, especially for her,” Jamie McCarthy, the groom’s sister, told media.. “She’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”

Obama regularly plays on the course, and anyone planning an event there is told ahead of time that plans may be reshuffled at the last-minute when the President in town, according to a manager from the company that handled logistics for the wedding.
