Liz+Mark’s wedding was one we will not forget. Liz +Mark came to us after reading an article Liz’s mom read in The Broadripple Gazette about our company.
Liz’s family was relatively new to the area and Liz+Mark were really busy professionals. We were thrilled to join in their wedding planning. Thus began a great friendship and lots of planning time. I love Liz. She is pretty, sooo smart and an IU Hoosier. In fact, unbeknownst to us, Liz’s mom and I attended IU together, lived next door to each other in different sororities and knew the same people. Liz also was a member of her mom’s sorority and shared in our love of Bloomington. Mark is a great guy too. Mark is a FABULOUS baseball player and fan! A graduate of DePauw, we shared stories about his alma mater and baseball. We loved helping Liz+Mark with vendor referral, design of their wedding, all of their invitations and coordination.
Their wedding was held at the United Methodist Church on North Meridian on a sunny afternoon. Prior to the wedding, we “trollied” for pictures with my new friends, “Jesse and Gina, Evansville’s renowned photographers” around town. One of our pictures was at the Eiteljorg under a statue with an umbrella-just for fun. A few raindrops came right after our pose, but we didn’t think a thing about it. The sky began to get gray; just before the wedding. Near the end of the ceremony the weather changed. With no real warning, we needed that umbrella! Rain poured hard and it poured fast.
Everyone was onboard the trolley headed for downtown. We arrived at Union Station. The entire wedding party was dodging the showers to get into the Crowne Plaza/Union Station for the reception. As soon as we arrived all of the lights went out. No problem, we had LOTS of beautiful candles burning and were ready for the guests. Soon the Crowne had the lights were back on, the music was playing and lots of laughter filled the room. It became a perfe
Later we were looking out the windows at some beautiful downtown city scape with drops of rain glistening like jewels on the windows,thinking about this beautiful couple and their beautiful dayct evening; just like the day had been.
We are thrilled and humbled to be named the Indy AList Best Wedding Planner. This is the fifth year in a row for our team. Please don’t consider me boastful but I MUST brag on my hard working and dedicated team of vendors and staff. Without them we could not create the weddings that we do. It takes a team and we are so proud to have the BEST. Our vast network of vendors and our creative staff make our working here at Kim King Smith Events an award every day. Thanks to all who vote for us, refer us and give us the opportunity to serve them as their Indiana Wedding Planner. Thank you! Thank you!

What a weekend! What a cause! The Coach Hep Cancer Challenge was held again this year at Indiana University. My staff and I had the privilege of volunteering. I met so many neat people with such big hearts. The supporters and survivors there were a true witness that we will beat cancer and win! Walkers, runners, and bicyclists all made a “major move” raising $1,0000′s for the Simon Cancer Center.
Of course as soon as I spotted the two brides running and in the picture, I CHASED them down to talk about their wedding and get a picture! Thanks, ladies!
