We were honored to be able to coordinate the wedding of Betsy and Jeff. What a great IU Wedding! How doe you like the way we designed the end zone???? Here is a “teaser” from Northernlight Filmworks. We will have more to come soon. All of you IU fans are gonna cheer for this one!
Attending a party or gathering soon? We know how you are looking forward to it and we know what it takes to throw a party. Make sure you’re the guest that goes the ‘little extra’ and remembers your host with a “hostess gift”. What is a hostess gift? We think it is a great way to say, “Thank you for inviting me!” We all love to be included and when we are invited to a special event we can show our appreciation with a small token.
Many guests include a bottle of wine (which we love to receive) as a gift, but think out of the box too. What about some great chocolates, fruit from the local farmer’s market, a new read or the latest released CD? Don’t underestimate flowers or a potted plant too. Hosts love to be remembered and appreciated. They worked hard to make the party a celebration and your thoughtfulness will be remembered with many more invitations.
Always remember a personal handwritten thank you note is a rarity and will be greatly appreciated too.
Your appreciation, your smile and willing hand to pitch in (when needed) will make your host or hostess invite you again and again. Of course, how could any party be fun without you?
My name is Ross Pierson and I am one of the new interns at Kim King Smith Events.
This fall, I will be starting my last year at Ball State University. I am majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I am originally from Avon, Indiana where I graduated Avon High School in 2010. At Ball State, I am the Director of Fundraising for Ball State University Dance Marathon. We are the largest philanthropic organization on campus. We raise money for Riley Hospital for Children. I am in charge of planning fundraising events throughout the year. I was also on the BSU Equestrian Team.
Through my life experiences and Dance Marathon, I realize that I love being part of events and want to incorporate that into my future career. This internship will get me a chance to see and work in the business. I am very excited to work with the fabulous Kim King Smith and I know she is going to give me a lot of experience.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
The runway report is in and lace is the new look! Its intricate beauty has captivated queens and starlets since Queen Victoria, and today it
is making a classy comeback with modern cuts and details. If you are looking for something very romantic and soft, lace is a beautiful material for a timeless wedding. It is ultrafeminine, classic, and romantic. Interested in adding a one of a kind detail to your dress? Lace capelets have the look of old Hollywood glam and can be wornover a lace gown. This little added coverage over a strapless gown is a greatvintage or two-in-one look, especially if you are on a budget! Lace is atimeless material, and some go so far as to makelace the theme of their decor. Check out some of these lace accents!
Bloomington is definitely at the top of the list for weddings. Of course we are prejudice to Indiana University with its beautiful trees, historic limestone, sprawling campus and romantic coveys. We were thrilled to be able to assist our couple, Amy and Dan with their Bloomington Wedding. Amy and Dan are a Chicago couple with Indiana roots and wanted to return to one of their mutual loves, Indiana University, for the biggest day of their lives.
The ceremony took place at the First Presbyterian Church, a historic limestoned building tucked behind Kirkwood Avenue. The golden hues and beautiful stained glass were the perfect parallel for Amy’s florals and bridesmaid’s gowns.
Indiana University Auditorium was the location for the reception and celebration! We loved that guests were able to mingle amidst the Auditorium’s rocky gardens for the cocktail hour and then gather in the Auditorium for dinner and dancing to the Flying Toasters Band.
Our floral division, Kim King Smith Events Floral Design, created all of the florals for the tables. We designed the room with the Bride’s chosen shades of buttercup. The crisp white linens with shimmering platinum accents were a perfect partner.
Romance, celebration and joy; all in the heart of Bloomington!
