Striking a balance between elegance and whimsy isn’t particularly easy, and may not always work, but this newly married couple did a perfect job of marrying these two opposing design styles–especially in their floral arrangements! Opting for classic wedding staples like Roses and Hydrangeas, and pairing them with boldly-hued Ranunculus and wild, free-form Eucalyptus, strikes the perfect balance.
Here’s what the couple ordered to create these lush winter arrangements: White Blush Garden Roses (72 stems), Seeded Eucalyptus Garlands (four of our 25 ft. garlands), Bridal Blush Ranunculus (100 stems), and a Mixed Eucalyptus Wedding Greenery Box (the large pack), and they supplemented these products with some locally sourced Hydrangeas and red Roses.

From the event planner, Double G Events: “One word describes this couple – FUN! Working with Katie + Kevin … there were definitely no dull moments, especially with Kevin’s comedic relief and out of the box ideas (sorry you didn’t get your ten foot champagne tower, Kevin)! Their first date was at the delicious RIOA Restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut, where they have become quite the regulars earning them the nickname “K-Squared” from the ROIA staff. So they decided where better than to have their black tie, cocktail style wedding reception, amIrigggght? And cocktail PARTY it was! They threw all the “wedding rules” out the door and opted for no assigned seating and no plated-coursed meals, just a crazy amount of passed appetizers, killer food stations, dancing, booze and an awesome candy bar!”
