Two dear friends — Andrea Young and Jerry Thomas — got married on March 8 at La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie, Md. near Washington, D.C.
It was a relatively small affair that included family and close friends — Andrea’s father, former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young, gave her away. Olympics athlete Edwin Moses was Thomas’ best man. Yolanda Renee King, the daughter of Martin Luther King III, and his wife, Arndrea, was the flower girl.
Here is a video (produced by AJ Production) that features highlights of the wedding and events leading up to the ceremony. Be sure to have a tissue handy. It is certainly helps reaffirm the notion that two people can find love after they’ve outlived their youth.
Andrea Young, an attorney by training, is now executive director of the Andrew Young Foundation in Atlanta. She is the oldest daughter of Andrew Young and the late Jean Childs Young.
Jerry Thomas, also an attorney, is the founder of Jerry Thomas Arts, an arts brokerage and consulting firm that specializes in African and African American art. He also recently became a strategic consultant to Martin Luther King III.
