Guests were prohibited from bringing their cell phones inside the party.

Musician-actor Nick Jonas posted on Instagram a photo of himself with his "Kingdom" co-star Jonathan Tucker, writing, "Straight off the plane to the White House."
Singer Jordin Sparks also took to Instagram to post a photo of herself with her father, writing, "Getting to take my Dad to the White House...Priceless. Soooo excited! Cheers! *drops mic*."
