(CNN)Former President Barack Obama officiated a wedding for two of his former staffers this past Sunday in Washington, DC, according to Washingtonian magazine.

According to the magazine, Obama had received a temporary officiant’s license through the District of Columbia and was also a signatory on the couple’s marriage certificate.
