Jim Norwood, Jr. and Lacey Wright were introduced in 2005 at the wedding of Jim's cousin, Caleb, who married Karen, Lacey's now best friend. They didn't really impress one another at the time and thought nothing of the introduction. Lacey was in college in Kentucky, and Jim had his life here. Then, in 2009 after Lacey moved home from college, they were reintroduced by Caleb and Karen, and it was love at "second sight," as they like to say. On January 17, 2009, they went on their first date, and on August 1, 2009, Jim proposed at a Sounds game in front of thousands of people. They have a commemorative baseball that says, "She said yes! August 1, 2009." On exactly the one year anniversary of their first date, Jim and Lacey said, "I do!" at Historic Riverwood Mansion. A bountiful buffet provided by Chef Penelope's Catering followed the ceremony, and guests ate, drank, and danced the afternoon away. It was a joyful celebration as these two beautiful fun loving people became one.
