An Urbandale, Iowa couple booked the barn at Living History Farms for their September 1st wedding six months ago, but a week before the ceremony were told a special guest was also coming.
Sayli Gibbs guessed it was the president and feared it would ruin their plans. It was Barack Obama, but his event ended on time and Jon and Sayli Gibbs were married as scheduled.
They had nearly forgotten their concerns when they were handed a card and two gifts, a mint julep cup and silver tray with the presidential seal and Obama's signature. The handwritten card said, "Michelle and I wish you a great life together. Barack Obama."
Despite the stress, the Gibbs say they're happy to have a story for their grandchildren.
