Product Editorial with Sweet Celebrations

Last week, we were so thrilled to help out our dear friends Sharleen and Shannon of Sweet Celebrations Wedding Cakes with their product editorial. Usually Sharleen and I only see each other in passing during the wedding season as we are busy with our own lovely creations on wedding days. So it was super lovely to get to spend the day with this dear and uber talented confectioner who has become a true friend and business bestie. Her beautiful edible creations are perfect pieces of art and were so inspiring to create around. If you haven’t had to a chance to meet this lovely lady and sample here delicious treats … what are you waiting for …. beautiful, lovely, sweet and delicious … the perfect sweet treats for your wedding day!

We are smitten with each and every image that photographer Eva Derrick captured of our sweet afternoon at the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

A special thank you shout out to the amazing and lovely Sadie of Love Me Make Up for making three ladies look super fabulous and beautiful!

ART GALLERY OF HAMILTON | Annual Menu Tasting Evening

Every year we are honoured to be part of the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Annual Client Menu Tasting Evening. We approached this years evening a little differently, and together with Danielle of Shaw Events, we created a gorgeous curated evening for everyone to enjoy … to be inspired … and to begin dreaming of their own special celebration.

The galleries magnificent 2500 ft Tanenbaum Pavillon is a beautiful space that allows for so much possibilty … an amazing blank space that allows you to create any type of atmsophere you can dream up. That is why we here at Sue Gallo Designs loves it so!! We also adore Chinoiserie and the beautiful patterns that this European interpretation of Chinese and Asian art create. The Pavillon was the perfect place to play with this gorgeous pattern, some even lovelier blooms and set the mood for an evening of delectable food, fine drinks and good company.

We are so thrilled to share this beautiful evening through the talented eyes of Kayla Yestal Fine Art Photography. With one pretty sweet sweets table styled by Sue Gallo Designs & Shaw Events with a gorgeous cake by The Dessert Room, Chinoiserie Plateware, Glass & Stem Ware from Plate Occasions and stationary by Quills. Thank you to Allison & Jodie of The Art Gallery of Hamilton for including us in this fabulous evening. We love being a part of this evening every year!

WEDDING FLOWER BUDGETING | Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much?

Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much more than any other bouquet you have ever bought? Some of you might think you’re are being taken advantage of …. but trust me my lovelies … that’s not the case! Think about this … we here at Sue Gallo Designs take the time to get to know you, your likes, dislikes,  your tastes and personal style, your over all wedding vision and help you curate a bouquet that is simply perfect for you, your gown and your wedding day.

Your bridal bouquet has 2 to 3 times more flowers within it than you might think. and we use the highest quality of product of course! Because nothing but the best for our lovely brides!  After taking time to understand your vision, your wedding and your dreams, we custom order your bouquet flowers from quality farms and hand pick your blooms for the highest & freshest quality and prettiest blooms to create your dream bouquet. Your bouquet isn’t created with just whatever is available at the flower market that week. We have fostered amazing relationships with growers and suppliers who have the highest quality and freshest blooms around and work with them to ensure that we have exactly what we are looking for.  With our years of experience, we know just what blooms will look best, what colours will compliment each other, and what textures work best together to fulfill your vision.

Once we have the prettiest and freshest blooms in studio, it takes us time to carefully clean and condition those gorgeous blooms. Then we set to work on hand crafting and carefully curating your bouquet. This always take us 3 to 4 times longer than it would for us to create a market bouquet … because we want to get it just right … perfect in fact!

Then it’s perfectly and beautiful bound with the loveliest ribbons and wrapped up super pretty … just for you.

It has taken years to hone our craft and to perfect our methods to create beautiful florals. So when you receive a quote for your wedding flowers … stop for a moment, look beyond the bottom line and consider this,  the value of our work and  your time spent with us and how we inspired you, the time it took us to carefully plan the most perfect wedding florals along with you … the experience & knowledge behind our florals. We here at Sue Gallo Designs are fiercely passionate about our work and helping you to create a most remarkable celebration!

So…what are you waiting for?? Give us a ring … lets get chatting and planning your amazingly beautiful Sue Gallo Designs wedding … so when you walk down the aisle you will be carring a beautiful bouquet … a bouquet you’ve been dreaming of since the day you said Yes to that gorgeous ring on your finger!

We can’t wait to hear all about this fabulous day you are planning!!!
