Sue's love of flowers began at an early age in her parent's backyard. Her Father grew 3 foot tall "dinner plate" dahlias to camouflage an ugly chicken wire fence. Spring, summer and fall, she played in a yard surrounded by cosmos, marigolds, petunias, zinnia, peonies, dahlias, snapdragons, daisies, gladiola and roses of all shapes, sizes and colors. As her love of flowers grew, she began helping her mom choose cuts from the backyard to arrange in vases to decorate their home.

Her designs are inspired by nature, which creates a look which is fresh, clean and wonderfully romantic. She keeps abreast of the newest design trends and is very excited to take every opportunity to explore all the design shows hosted by wholesalers and industry design artists. Styles continually change and evolve. So whether you want a sleek, modern design or an old-fashioned garden style, she can show you hundreds of possibilities.

Petals would love to work with you and create perfect floral designs for your Wedding with all the attention to detail and expertise you wish for your special day.

My greatest joy is to deliver a Bride’s bouquet on her Wedding Day. To see the look of sheer joy on her face when her bouquet exceeds all her expectations

Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers! I didn’t even imagine that they would look as beautiful as they did. We got a lot of compliments on how the centerpieces really added to the class of the entire room. I completely agree. Understated elegance. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
