The Obama Wedding Photos Will Remind You Of Better Times

Though their 24th wedding anniversary was a month ago, we defy anyone to look at these wedding photos of the Obamas and not feel a little twinge. Barack and Michelle married at Trinity United Church in Chicago on October 3, 1992.

Now, their wedding photos are re-circulating on Twitter. For comparison, here's what they look like now.
On their wedding day, Barack wore the standard black tuxedo and the optimism of youth. He mostly looks the same, but the years in office have told a little. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, that sort of thing.

Michelle wore a floral cold-shoulder gown and a '90s-style giant veil, but she more or less looks as she does now. Her nervous smile will be relatable to anyone having an "Oh, crap" moment on their wedding day. Don't worry, past-Michelle. It all works out. Don't ask about 2016, please.
