a little about sue

I grew up surrounded by flowers and all things pretty in my parents flower shop. Although my mom may not know it, I am forever grateful to her for sharing her passion of flowers with me. I only wish my garden was as pretty as hers.

I am married to my high school sweet heart Matt, who is a genius with renovating. His main ambition is to love his family well and make our world a better place. We spent our late twenties renovating and our thirties operating a fabulously sweet little flower shop on Locke Street in Hamilton. With the arrival of our little Miss Ally, we re-evaluated our life and the business. In an effort to spend as much time as possible with our new little family and to allow me to continue my passion of flowers, we moved our business home. In doing so, we were able to transition the flower shop into a design studio that specializes simply in weddings. We even welcomed a new little bundle of energy named Jack. Finally we were complete in every sense!

I like to mix nature and glamour, raw and refined, which is no doubt influenced by my time studying floral design under Dutch Master Aad Van Uflen in Holland. Serving as creative director of Sue Gallo Designs allows me feed my need to create pretty things, dream, and become inspired by all the love stories that bind people. I am highly sensitive (in most every respect). So don’t be surprised when I tear up as I watch you walk down the aisle to marry the love of your life.
