The couple originally wanted to do just one Obama-themed photo, but their wedding planner Covesa Kelly wanted more. “I miss the Obamas SO much that when our bride and groom said, ‘Can we try and duplicate one of their famous shots for our engagement pics?’ I was like ‘Let’s do an entire shoot ― we can do this and this and THIS!’” she wrote on Instagram.
