Black Paris Profiles™: Kimberley Petyt

Kim Petyt is “living the life” in Paris! Originally from Chicago, she’s married to a Frenchman, has two children, and operates a successful wedding- and event-planning business called parisian events. She has become so well known because of her business that she was recently featured in the The New York Times Style Magazine. As you might imagine, her story is a unique one.

When Kim was small, she was inspired to move to Paris after seeing the film Le Ballon Rouge. She didn’t have the opportunity to visit the city until she was in her early 20s, but once she did, she found it to be everything that she had dreamt it would be. Due to her circumstances at that time, she thought that it would just have to be her favorite vacation spot. But years later, she met her husband-to-be while on vacation in Paris and eventually got married here, and then moved here when his job called for a transfer. They settled in the City of Light in 2001.
