President Obama and his family stayed on at the wedding celebration of White House chef Sam Kass until 1:05 am Sunday morning, after six and a half hours of wedding festivities.
The wedding of Kass, a longtime aide to both Obamas, and MSNBC anchor Alex Wagner, was held at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. The working farm and noted restaurant sit on rolling hills and provide an appealing backdrop for the evening’s events, according to the pool report.
The Obamas flew up via Air Force One to White Plains, N.Y. late Saturday afternoon and then took a 23-minute motorcade to the wedding site. Valerie Jarrett was spotted leaving the White House with the Obamas.
They returned to the White House in an unusual middle-of-the-night flight that departed White Plains at 1:33 am. The Obamas arrived at the White House just before 3:00 am.
