Kent Officiates -- Winning Wedding Ceremony Photo Taken

Cory Parris just shared this award-winning photo with us. The image took second place in the ISPWP (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) Fall 2008 Photo Contest, Ceremony Category.

The best wedding photographers (those who have photographed at least 50 weddings as the primary photographer and have met the standards of the membership committee) compete for these awards.

We are so proud of Cory entering nine images, with eight of them placing.

Jen and Gregg created a wonderful world for their ceremony at the ever versatile Palace Ballroom. It was an enchanted space lit by the glow of lanterns.

Of course, it was made even more memorable by a problem on the monorail, which runs overhead on the street in front of the venue. Monorail passengers needed to disembark via firefighitng ladders. Emergency personnel closed the sidewalk making it difficult for guests to enter The Palace. Thankfully, Gregg and Jen were working with professionals and everything worked out well.

The rest of the evening went perfectly. Everyone enjoyed themselves, dancing the night away.

What I appreciated about this wedding is that there truly was an unexpected and unpreventable occurrence yet the ceremony and celebration were enjoyed thoroughly.

Jen and Gregg's love shone through. Their words of why they loved each other added that element of romantic sparkle to the night.
