Look at the engagement announcement of our military couple Matt+Jodi. We are sooo excited to be there for them. It’s been a fun road of communication for us as we have planned their wedding; from Tokyo and Australia where they are stationed. Now we will all be HOME in southern Indiana for the Best kind of wedding with Happily Ever After!

WASHINGTON — Robert and Sheila White of Loogootee announce the engagement of their daughter, Jodi Leigh White, to Matthew Croucher, son of Alan and Robyn Croucher of Cronulla, New South Wales, Australia.
The couple met in Yokosuka, Japan, while Matt was admitted to the hospital that Jodi was stationed at and was assigned as his nurse. After his discharge they continued their friendship that later developed into love.
The future bride received a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Indiana University. She joined the Navy as an officer upon graduation and is currently stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. Her fiance graduated from Heathcote High School and has since served in the Royal Australian Navy as a boatswain mate for the past eight years.
An Oct. 20 wedding and reception are planned at the Jasper Country Club.
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!
Don’t deny it, we all have a list of favorite television shows that we watch every week. One of my new favorites is The Cupcake Girls. I tune in every Tuesday night. The Cupcake Girls is a great show for me because I have such a sweet tooth and so every time I watch it I want to bake! Good thing I resist the urge pretty well or else I might be overcome with enough desserts to last me a year. The Cupcake Girls is about the trials and tribulations of Cupcakes by Heather and Lori, a nostalgic cupcake franchise in the USA and Canada. Heather White and Lori Joyce are the co-owners of Cupcakes by Heather and Lori and the show tells the story of their rise in the cupcake world. It’s got everything. It has charm, whit, and cupcakes, with a lot of business savvy.
I am telling you about The Cupcake Girls to recommend that you watch the show of course, but also to fill you in on why cupcakes are so happening. Cupcakes are like little bundles of joy. They are just as delicious as a full cake, but in a better serving size, and you can get so creative with them. Yes cakes have the same ability, but it’s a little unusual to see a mound of cupcakes instead of one large cake. Cupcakes are becoming so popular because they are unexpected.
I am a creative person and so I see so many possibilities when I think about serving cupcakes instead of one big cake. You can use cupcakes as the main dessert display at any event. Birthday parties, graduation parties, anniversary parties, and even weddings are all great places to serve the little cups of heaven. You can try new flavor combinations, get a little artsy with the icing, or try a new display method. For example, you can line up your cupcakes and spell words with the icing as if it were a puzzle. For a birthday or graduation party you can spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY or any sort of congratulatory message. You can mix icing colors and designs to create your own original cupcake to match any theme or color scheme. As a bride and groom, think about serving a tower of cupcakes instead of layers and layers of cake that would take forever to cut. Contact us here at Kim King Smith Events and we can assist you with your cupcake craze! We would suggest keeping the tradition alive though, by getting one small layer of cake for the bride and groom to cut and then having a crafty cupcake display for the rest of your guests. No need for volunteer cake cutters, the guests can come and pick up their individually wrapped dessert as they please.
Now if you still want to cling on to the idea of one big cake, consider a cupcake cake. Now you can buy new baking pans that are shaped like an oversized cupcake and matching icing topper. These pans make for an unusual cake that can add a little surprise to the party. Nobody will be expecting one gigantic cupcake! So whenever you want to be that person at the party that always brings the best looking and best tasting dessert, think cupcakes!

We just came upon this fabulous and creative way to incorporate your favors and decor into one. Whether you are having a wedding reception or social party, this is a great way for guests to receive a personal wish and gift from you.
Martha Stewart did it again with this original and creative idea. Candles in three shades of white are wrapped in corrugated paper and tied with waxed twine; written inside are messages from the bride and groom
and/or hosts. A thank you, a memory, a holiday wish can all be a message on these simple and thoughtful gifts. Read more at Marthastewartweddings.com: White Favors: Greeting Candles
Thank you, Martha!
