Parker Gannon.

Miss Kimberly Anita Parker and Dr. Anthony Wayne Gannon were united in marriage on December 17, 2005, at two o'clock in the afternoon at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Donald Parker and the late Mr. Parker and the granddaughter of Mrs. Norman Whitfield and the late Mr. Whitfield. The groom is the son of Mrs. Debbie Hardy and Mr. Roger Gannon. The groom's maternal grandparents include Ms. Carol Head, Ms. Cappy Page, and Mr. and Mrs. John Head; paternal grandparents include Mrs. Charles Gannon and the late Mr. Gannon.

Dr. Ligon Duncan III and Mr. Stephane Jeanrenaud co-officiated at the double-ring ceremony. Friend of the bride David Norris provided the worship service with celebratory piano music. The wedding hall was lighted by wall sconces and beautiful red and white roses, and gladioli decorated the aisles.

At the hour, the bride entered the chapel to Pachelbel's "Canon in D" wearing a pearl necklace, a wedding gift from the groom. She was adorned in a strapless organza gown featuring a delicately embroidered, beaded bodice and skirt with a satin hem. The bride's fingertip veil was tipped with matching satin trimming. The bride carried a bouquet of radiant red roses sprinkled with hypericum berries. The bouquet was decorated by a pearl jeweled pendant which was first given by the groom's great-grandfather to his bride at their wedding in 1919. All of the brides of the Gannon family have included this pendent in their wedding ceremonies since that time.

Attending the bride were Julia Mitchell, Laura Piazza, and Tara Rosenberg. Attendants wore chocolate halter-top tea-length ensembles and also carried red roses with hypericum berries.

Groomsmen included Michael Dew, Paul Flinta, and Scott Shull. Ushers included groomsmen, Josh Cherry, and uncle of the groom Tom Head.

During the rehearsal, Rebecca Rose served as the bride's proxy.

Following the ceremony, the reception was held in Patterson Hall. Serving at the reception were friends of the bride Ashley Hall and Bethany Machost and cousins of the groom Sarah Joy Gannon and Angela Gannon. The couple left the ceremony amid bubbles as the guests sang "Joy to the World."

On the eve of the wedding, Ms. Head and Ms. Page honored the couple by hosting the wedding party and family at the Edison Walthall Hotel for a rehearsal dinner.

The Gannons honeymooned in Brentwood, Tennessee, and are now at home in Flowood, where the bride studies in the department of Physiology in the combined MD/PhD program and the groom continues residency in the departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, both at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
