HARRISON - President Barack Obama will be back in Westchester today to attend the wedding of his personal chef in Pocantico Hills.

The wedding of senior nutrition adviser Sam Kass and MSNBC talk show host Alex Wagner will be held at Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

The president was in Westchester yesterday for fundraising stops. He returned to the White House last night, but will be back in Westchester Saturday afternoon for the wedding.

Westchester Airport was completely shut down Friday as the president exited Air Force One and entered a motorcade. The president's first stop was a Democratic fundraiser in New Rochelle.

The president then headed to a second fundraiser at the Purchase home of business tycoon Robert Wolf. The cost to attend the fundraiser was more than $32,000 a plate.

Obama returned to Westchester County Airport to catch a flight to Warwick, Rhode Island, for a third Democratic Party event before returning to the White House.

President Obama made two visits to the Hudson Valley in May and is often in New York City.

Reports say the president and first lady may be looking to become New Yorkers in the future.
