President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary on Saturday.

It’s unclear how the first couple celebrated the event, which over their past seven years in the White House, has been interrupted by presidential campaigns, debates and threats of a government shutdown.

Indeed, they have won the hearts of Americans with their love and dedication to one another and first daughters Malia and Sasha. They were married on Oct. 3, 1992 at Trinity United Church in Chicago.

Please join The Root in wishing the first couple a happy anniversary. Here are some of our favorite photos of them to celebrate the occasion.
