Straight From Their Hearts!
Betsy (Henke) Garfield, Bride: “….Thank you and thank you so much for everything that you and your team did. I cannot express it enough…. all of your constant efforts to make sure everything was perfect and more importantly, so much fun! I could go on and on but just wanted to say thank you for making and being part of our special day. I greatly appreciate it!”
Anne Burnett O’Neill, Former Bride: “I wanted you to know how grateful I am to you. I tell people I had no idea what my reception would look like, and hardly anyone can believe me. I knew I could trust you to do a beautiful job. Four years later, thanks again! 🙂 “
Anita Harris, Mother of the Bride: “ I wanted to thank you and your staff for doing such a spectacular and wonderful job for Drs. Yelena and Fred’s (Harris/Makori) wedding. Everything was BEAUTIFUL! We received a lot of compliments on how well everything was organized and presented. I would definitely recommend Kim King Smith Events to everyone who is looking for someone who will make their wedding or any special occasion and event to remember —you are a five star!!!!
Dr. Cassie (Neureiter) Brady, Bride: “Thank you so much. The day was awesome, thank you for everything! Absolutely perfect and your gals and you were so helpful. The best day ever!”
Alyssa (Rosenbaum) Bost and Paul Bost, Bride and Groom: “I highly recommend Kim to any bride looking for a warm, caring, money-savvy, professional and expert consultant to help her plan a wedding that fits her personality and her budget. Since I live in LA, I hired Kim while I was in Indy for my sister’s wedding and worked with her to book all my major vendors in just 3 days 6 months before our wedding date. There is no way I could have planned my wedding in that short amount of time and got my money’s worth without Kim. When I got engaged, I didn’t think I was going to hire a planner but after seeing many of my friends deal with not-so-great day-of coordinators, I decided to hire a professional. A wedding is a major investment so I knew that I wanted someone with expertise helping me create the wedding I wanted and stay within my budget. Thanks to Kim putting me in touch with the right vendors, my wedding ended up being $5000 under budget. Now for the actual day of the wedding… I don’t know how I would have done it without Kim and her fabulous team. They helped with everything behind the scenes on the Big Day: from vacuuming the carpet of the church after we tracked in mud following our outdoor photos to organizing all my favors in a beautiful arrangement at the reception hall… they did it all! Even though I had 8 bridesmaids and a mom, it was great to have Kim and her assistants there to help with all the little things that someone who is in the wedding party can’t do. My wedding was more than I hoped for! It was just a really, really FUN day that my fiance and I completely enjoyed. And we were able to relax that day because we knew that Kim and her team of pros had it more than covered! I think of Kim as my “wedding mom”… but don’t tell my mom I said that! :)”
Katie(Egan) Thoe and Andy Thoe, Bride and Groom: “Thank you for the most memorable and special year of my life!”
Brittany (Johnson) Jaynes, Bride: “Kim was absolutely wonderful! I was on a very tight budget and she worked with me to find a package that would give me what I needed for a price that was reasonable with my budget. Kim thinks of special touches that just set your wedding apart from everyone else’s. Going with Kim is definitely the way to go, no matter the event!”
Amy(Levell) and Dan Ponce, Bride and Groom: “Thank you for everything you did for our wedding. It truly was the happiest day of our lives and we had so much fun!” We are so thankful to you for all of your hard work.

Liz (Calhoun) Williams, Bride: “Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. I have told all my single friends about what a wonderful job you did for our special day; it couldn’t have gone any better! You all are amazing!”

Marc and Sara Wright, Parents of the Bride: “In June, our daughter got married at the St. Luke’s Methodist church in Indianapolis with the wedding reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Kim King Smith was our wedding planner and it was an event to remember. From the flowers to every detail it was spectacular! It was one of those nights that you dream of for your daughter’s wedding, and with Kim’s help, it came true! After six months, we still have people telling us what a beautiful wedding it was and a great time that they had! In fact, our daughter and we talk about it all the time wishing we could relive that night again! We can’t thank Kim enough for everything she did!”
Darlene Heck, Mother of the Bride: “Kim King Smith was my wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding at the Indiana Roof Ballroom on June 12, 2010. The wedding was absolutely magical and Kim poured her heart and soul into the planning process. She was able to guide me to wonderful vendors, advise me with my contracts and help immeasurably with the time line. The day of the wedding went so smoothly, and I could not have done it without her and her staff. Your daughter’s wedding day is a once in a lifetime event and it is important to choose a wedding planner that will give 110% and see your vision, no matter what price point you are working with. Kim has the ability to see the final picture and be supportive and encouraging in the process. It is important to have someone who is always upbeat and willing to help work out any problems that arise. Kim is exceptional in that regard, and I recommend her highly to make your event as wonderful as mine.”

We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!”

Jamie (Milazzo) Jaliwala, Bride: “My family and I were very fortunate to be able to work with Kim King-Smith. Initially, my mom and I thought we could handle everything in our own. However, as it got closer to my wedding date, we became more concerned about managing the flow of events. Having Kim at our rehearsal and wedding took the worry out of making sure our wedding party and vendors were doing what they were supposed to do. It made the celebration so much more fun and relaxing for myself and my family. We were able to enjoy some of the most special moments in our lives! I would not want to think about what would have happened had we not had Kim there. She was a great help to my family, the bridal party, and the guests as well. The cost was well within our budget.

She also kept everyone on schedule, which the guests appreciated. All of the preplanning on her part helped as well… she took a lot of the stress out of the reception preparation! We can’t thank her enough for her help with our special day!”

Janet Milazzo, Mother of the Bride: “My daughter and I thought that we could handle the wedding day by ourselves. Boy, were we wrong! I hired Kim shortly before the wedding day and she was a life saver. I kept saying to myself on the day of the wedding, “What were you thinking?” I would have been running around, frantically, without Kim. With Kim there, I did not worry, she saw to every detail. My daughter’s day was perfect, beautiful and I completely enjoyed myself! Kim King Smith was one of the big reasons it was perfect!”
