Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte shares first photo from her secret wedding held just days after Christmas
26-year-old Charlotte took to Instagram Thursday morning to share the first photo from her wedding as she and Henry Bond -- who is a Naval Academy graduate -- descended down the steps of the chapel underneath an arch of swords.
Vice President Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte Pence and her fiance Henry Bond took the holy vows two years after being introduced to each other at a wedding. A spokeswoman for second lady Karen Pence revealed how the doting couple married three days after Christmas at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. USA Today reported last month how the exact date of the wedding was kept under wraps due to security concerns.
26-year-old Charlotte took to Instagram on Thursday morning to share the first photo from her wedding as she and Bond -- who is a Naval Academy graduate -- descended down the steps of the chapel underneath an arch of swords, People reports.
“Forever your hand in mine,” she wrote in the caption.
On her Instagram story, Charlotte shared the photo of a “wifey” coffee mug with the text “can finally use this mug with a clean conscience phew.”
“Congratulations to Charlotte and Henry!” her mother Karen wrote on Twitter.
Speaking to People, a source revealed how the wedding was attended by Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. Kushner and Vice President Pence have been close since the campaign, the source claimed. In a conversation with USA Today in December, Charlotte revealed how her brother, Michael Pence introduced her to Bond at his wedding in October 2017.
According to her, she and Bond share similar world views and desires. “He [Michael] started conspiring a little with his wife, talking about how Henry really reminded them of me,” Charlotte said in December. “Henry I just shared a lot of the same views about life and faith and I think they were excited to see if anything happened.”
“My parents are used to moving a lot and have taken a lot of risks in their life,” she told USA Today. “And I think that’s something Henry and I bonded over, that we both wanted to take risks.”
Charlotte also noted how Bond wanted her for who she was and not for her family's reputation. “Something that I really love about him is that he has really always been interested in me and not my last name, ever,” she told USA Today.
The duo became engaged in July last year. “I said ‘yes,’ and then I said ‘thanks’ a lot because I didn’t know what else to say,” she playfully wrote on Instagram at the time. “I love you. Let’s do this.”
According to USA Today, she and Bond had already set their wedding date before he was deployed.
