The wedding party never looked so official. President Barack Obama was a groomsman in a wedding on Saturday, January 7, and there are photos to prove it.
The Leader of the Free World, 55, flew down to Jacksonville, Florida, to support his close friend and personal aide, Marvin Nicholson, in his wedding to Helen Pajcic.
According to the Washington Post, the groom helps arrange the president’s trips and travel plans. The bride, meanwhile, is a supporter of Obama’s administration and even worked on the president’s campaign back in 2008.
Local news station WJXT4 obtained photos from the nuptials of Obama dutifully taking his spot as one of four groomsmen. POTUS wasn’t the only one to partake in the wedding: Secretary of State John Kerry presided over the nuptials as the officiant.
