Isabella Dianne Kornmeyer

Well, she's finally here! Izzy took her sweet time coming in to this world but she was well worth the wait. Matt and I arrived at the hospital at 8:15am ( I drove) and they started the drugs to induced labor. At 3pm I was well on my and feeling quite comfortable with help from the epidural. Isabella was born at 8:49pm. She weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 21 inches long. The 3 of us left the hospital 48 hours later and were so happy to be at home. This past week has been crazy to say the least, yucky dirty diapers, late night feedings and absolutely no sleep. But the rare moments that she does sleep and those little smiles that she makes are so precious. Enjoy the pictures!

Jacqueline and Dave

Our first wedding of the season! I kept thinking it was Saturday the entire time. These Friday night weddings are becoming more and more popular. I like the late evening feel, it’s swanky and fun. To my surprise the guests were all on time too despite it being a Friday evening. I even made it there on time, regardless of my $150 speeding ticket on my way to the Omni. Pastor Kirby made it very special for Jacqueline and Dave by personalizing the vows and having her grandpa get up and talk about 50 years of marriage. The 2 cutest ring bearers you have ever seen didn’t quite make it through the ceremony, but captured the AWE from the crowd in their adorable suspenders and knickers. Jacqueline was absolutely amazing and her vision came to life when she stepped into that Melissa Sweet gown. Everything had a 1940’s feel from the d├ęcor to the feathers that accented the cocktail tables. Her band, Cool Swing City Band rocked the house with their 9 piece band and girl lead singer. They played everything from the 40’s era to swing music. The dance floor was packed until early the next morning. My feet were fine until the clock struck 1 and I was still packing up. What a sweet couple and a great event. They are now off to Cancun to honeymoon for the week. I told her to bring back some sunshine!
