Just Announced: Color of the Year 2014


Pantone has just announced the color of the year for 2014. We have anxiously been awaiting this announcement.  Each year, it is so much fun to see what the color will be.  This year it is a hue of purple and we love it!!! (of course)

Did you know that purple is considered a neutral?  It has warm AND cool tones which make it a very compatible color partner.  The new color is soft, but yet powerful enough to stand alone.  What colors will you pair it with?  Make sure to let us know.

Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2014: PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid

“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Bryan and Stefanie

Bryan and Stefanie how do we even begin to put your wedding into words! The love this couple had for each other was evident from the early hours of the girls getting their hair and make-up done to when the last song was finally played at their Spanish Garden themed reception.

So to provide you, the reader, with even an ounce of how marvelous this day truly was, not only for Bryan and Stefanie, but for Kim King Smith Events, I am going to give you the spectacular details of their wedding day.

The ceremony took place at St. John’s Catholic Cathedral Church in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. The bride, Stefanie, walked down the aisle to the entry she had always dreamed of; the famous Sound of Music song, “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?” (We were definitely clapping and cheering in the back!)  As the two heavy, wooden doors opened and the bride proceeded down the aisle, Bryan’s face lit up as he looked at his gorgeous, bride, seeing her for the first time.  This was just the beginning of an enchanting evening they would never forget!

After the ceremony, Stefanie and Bryan were greeted amongst family and friends with a “never ending tunnel” of wedding wands ( yes, we make them!) and bubbles as they exited the church and into their getaway vehicle, or should I say limo! They drove throughout downtown Indy taking stunning pictures while Kim King Smith Events was finalizing every detail at the incredible Indiana Roof Ballroom.

Guests were greeted at the ballroom with cocktails and a personalized bottle of Spanish Olive Oil, which also served as their place card. 

When Bryan and Stefanie finally arrived, they, along with their guests, enjoyed an evening under the ballroom stars amongst a garden of imported Spanish blooms that dazzled in the beauty of candle light.

Can I say more? Yes, but I won’t! I will let you now view these breathtaking pictures of a truly breath taking day! Thank you Bryan and Stefanie for sharing your day with us!
