What some folks have said about the book
You will enjoy Charles Parish’s truly “happy” read. Each story shows his sensitive connectivity with humanity under stress, and each memory ends with a philosophical “study lesson.” Tom Frost

Senior Chairman of the Board, Frost National Bank

THE GROOM WORE WHITE SOCKS is a book we were waiting to have in our hands! The combination of Charles Parish/Logan Ramirez/Lindsay Irvin is a tour de force. I have learned through nearly 60 years of “doing” marriages that the stories wedding services generate are the laughter and tears of humanity, and I congratulate our “combo” for bringing us tales of delight in written form. The Rev. Raymond Judd

Chaplain Emeritus, Trinity University

Charles Parish has fortunately preserved the often hilarious moments that jar the life of a professional photographer but are rarely recorded. He seems to have seen it all, from a pack of favorite golden retrievers loping down the aisle to a sprinkler system suddenly dousing those at an outdoor wedding.  Moreover, to avoid one sort of crisis, he had the foresight to register to perform weddings when the preacher didn’t show up. A collection of truly entertaining and cautionary tales. Lewis Fisher

It is a pleasure and privilege when asked to express an opinion about someone’s work ethic and working ability–especially when that person is Charles Parish, whom I have worked with for the 52 years he has been in business as a professional photographer.

Weddings are the most important day in the lives of young ladies, and pictures  presented to them for precious memories of the special occasion should be taken by a professional like Charles.

I must pay tribute to Charles who as a professional here describes for all of us the many parts of life that ‘just happen.’  These tales also show us how composed and sensible he was with these James Bond moments in his tuxedo. Rosemary Kowalski

Considering how long I’ve known Charles, I’m just glad I wasn’t mentioned in his book!  He has photographed three generations of my family – from weddings to children to parties.  Charles is always professional, thoughtful,l and conscientious.  It has been a pleasure being the happy beneficiary of his talents and skills.
