Martin and Coretta were married on June 18, 1953. It happened on the lawn of her parents’ home in Marion, Alabama. Martin’s father, the Reverend King, Sr., performed the wedding ceremony.
Mrs. Edythe Bagley, Coretta’s sister, was maid of honor. Reverend A.D. King, Martin’s brother, was best man.
Some web sites credit him with this quote “There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage.” However, after some fact checking I found it was really said my Martin Luther a monk from Germany.
I did find this one “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
So congratulations to all the couples who are ready to take the first step in marriage.
