On a late August evening, Timothy Alphonso Carter married Cornitra Tache’ Sampson in an elegant ceremony, attended by 700 guests at Carter’s home church, the New Shiloh Baptist Church in Baltimore.

Carter, an applications engineer, is the younger son of New Shiloh’s first couple, the Rev. Monique T. Carter and the Rev. Harold Carter Jr., who officiated the Aug. 25 ceremony.

Sampson, a registered clinical nurse II, is the daughter of Carla Johnson and Corey Sampson.

After the wedding, the newlyweds left for a two-week honeymoon in Japan. A love for Japanese culture is among the couple’s shared interests: Timothy took Japanese in high school and Cornitra shares his appreciation for ramen noodles and other types of Japanese food. The couple is expected to visit Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Hakone.
