People miss the Obamas so much, they’re still inviting them to their weddings ― and they’re still getting replies from the former first couple.

On Monday, Twitter user @96_brooke shared a letter her mom Liz Whitlow received from “the office of Barack and Michelle Obama” after sending a wedding invitation their way. (Hey, you might as well aim high with your guest list.)

Chelsea Roden and her wife, Lisa, sent then-President Obama a handwritten invitation to their wedding in 2016.
“I was really grateful for the work his administration did,” Roden told CNN. “When we first started dating in 2011, same-sex marriage wasn’t even on the table.”
She completely forgot about the invitation she mailed to the White House until she got a response back one month before her wedding.
It read: “Congratulations on your wedding day. May this special time be blessed with love, laughter, and happiness. We wish you all the best as you embark on your journey together, and we hope your bond grows stronger with each passing year.
And for all the single ladies out there, it’s not just wedding invitations that get an Obama response.
Aubree Spath mailed her high school graduation announcement to the White House and got a lengthy reply.
“It’s somewhat magical reading the letter and thinking Obama’s proud of you,” Spath told CNN. “It really did put the cherry on top of my senior year.”
New mom Rachel Newsom sent the Obamas a birth announcement for her daughter, Harlem, in October and got a response welcoming the baby to the world.
