Washington D.C. (WSFA) - The White House's security was breached by two party crashers at President Obama's first state dinner. The Secret Service is trying to figure out how a Northern Virginia couple was able to crash the president's party with their names not being on the guest list.

The couple was introduced at the dinner, but was never seated at a table. On their facebook page are pictures of them with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. A secret service agent said, "the checkpoint did not follow proper procedures."

President Obama hosted the event in honor of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
