Obama stood by longtime aide Marvin Nicholson’s side as he married Helen Pajcic this weekend at a private residence in Jacksonville, Florida. Secretary of State John Kerry officiated the ceremony. FLOTUS, sadly, was not in attendance.
Both the bride and groom have worked in the Obama administration and on his 2008 presidential campaign. The groom is White House trip director, personal aide and golf partner to Obama, while the bride works on policy for the U.S. Department of Education, according to the Washington Post. Her father is prominent Jacksonville attorney and politician Steve Pajcic, who is also an Obama fundraiser.
As far as groomsmen go, it doesn’t get much better than the “swagalicious” POTUS himself.
The Huffington Post reached out to the wedding planner for comment. This story may be updated.
