The wedding was the much-heralded military wedding which was postponed twice because of unforeseen circumstances. Originally, the huge affair was planned for March 28,1942 but military obligations in the U.S. Army prevented it from happening. Rushed by Uncle Sam, they were married, however, when the sergeant passed through here on his way to Camp Lee. This quiet ceremony took place on Saturday, April 4, but since extensive preparations had already been made for a military wedding of huge proportions; they held the ceremony on April 8,1942 in full splendor at St. James A.M.E. Church with Rev. A.O.Wilson presiding at the proxy ceremony.
In keeping with a military theme, the female attendants wore gowns of navy blue or American Red with only the flower girl wearing white. Each basket they carried of fragrant Creole Easter lilies, baby breath fern and asparagus were tied in wide red, white and blue tulle. The ring bearer was attired in full American army officer’s uniform. The bride nor the groom is pictured in this photo, but she (Annabelle) , stunningly attired in white silk lace, was given in marriage by her brother, Mr. Fred Martin. The groom , of course, was attired in his full U.S. Army uniform.
