Mom Invites Barack Obama to Daughter’s Wedding and Gets a Reply
Liz Whitlow sent Barack and Michelle Obama a wedding invitation before her marriage to Eddie Edgar in March. While the former presidential power couple were not able to show up, Liz and her daughter, Brooke, were thrilled to receive a reply from the Obamas.
Brooke tweeted a photo of the Obamas’ reply Tuesday and it immediately exploded in the social media – getting over 200,000 likes, and almost 50,000 shares on Twitter alone.
“My mom deadass sent the Obamas a wedding invitation back in march and just received this in the mail. I’m hollering,” Brooke wrote in her tweet.
The reply may be a couple of months late but the mom and daughter were still shocked that the Obamas replied at all.
The letter which was sent from “The Office of Barack and Michelle Obama” read: “Congratulations on your wedding. We hope that your marriage is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness and that your bond grows stronger with each passing year. This occasion marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership and as you embark on this journey, know that you have our very best for the many joys and adventures that lie ahead.”
While the letter has shocked many, there are those who responded to Brooke’s tweet sharing their own ‘surprise’ stories when they received their own letter-reply from the former POTUS.
A Twitter subscriber named Aubree (@strawbreeee) from Florida tweeted a photo of a letter she received from the White House on June 6, 2016, after she mailed a letter telling then President Obama about her high school graduation.
Another subscriber named Rae tweeted a copy of a congratulatory card she received from the Obamas when she informed them about the birth of her daughter, Harlem Rose Fitzpatrick.
There are many others who could not stop gushing about their own “Obama letters” and considering that many people are now aware that the couple is responding, the Obamas may find themselves buried in letters in the months to come.
