A 70th birthday, then a marriage

Charlotte Walls and William Prince celebrated Charlotte’s 70th birthday in January 2010. She and her gentleman caller gathered among guests for a spectacular party, which took place at the African-American Cultural Society.

The evening was unforgettable, especially since Charlotte looked so much younger than 70 and exemplified the phrase that “70 is the new 50.”

So two years later, after coming across William and Charlotte’s wedding pictures, I wanted my readers to again be privy to their December 2011 union as husband and wife.

The Rev. Gillard S. Glover, pastor of First Church, officiated the covenant of marriage.

Some guests ventured from across the country for the ceremony and a reception held at the home of Mark and Ruth Green, Charlotte’s son and daughter-in-law.

So, while mingling and socializing, the guests had almost as much fun as Charlotte and William.
