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!
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!
