Welcome to The Cutting Garden at Flora Grubb Gardens. We are delighted to provide flowers for weddings and special occasions of all kinds. Our floral designer, Susie Nadler, will work with you to create beautiful custom designs for your event using seasonal, California-grown flowers and plants.
Susie and The Cutting Garden are available for events and weddings in 2015. At this time, however, The Cutting Garden is not equipped to accommodate requests for single-bouquet deliveries.
If you would like to inquire about availability or schedule a consultation, please email Susie@floragrubb.com with details about your event (if you have them), including date, location, and number of guests expected.
In the meantime, you can enjoy photos and descriptions of Susie’s work below, or visit her Flickr portfolio here.

Manka’s boathouse, in the misty town of Inverness on Tomales Bay, is one of the most truly romantic places I’ve ever seen, no cheese or fanfare about it. Just a simple and beautiful cabin surrounded by water and trees and coastal grass, with a massive fireplace and a pier to walk out on the bay. Laura and Eric’s wedding at the boathouse last September was one of my favorites of the year. See the flowers below. Photos by the lovely and talented Edyta Szyszlo.

It’s a bit dreary out there today, so how about some peony loveliness from last spring to cheer things up? Claudia and Scott were married on an uncharacteristically sun-dappled day in the Presidio, surrounded by loads of coral charm peonies. You just can’t go wrong with those beauties, so exuberant and fun. Thanks, Emily, for sharing these photos. See more of Emily’s wedding work here.

Here’s a city wedding in the springtime rain, reception held in the moody and elegant Julia Morgan Ballroom downtown. The bride loves white dogwood, and we were lucky enough to catch it at its peak (which doesn’t last long!). Simple bunches of dogwood in glass were so dramatic against the dark wood paneling of the room. Enjoy these gorgeous photos by Alison Yin.

Cara and Ryan’s wedding was a surprise — not to them, fortunately! — but to their guests, most of whom believed they’d been invited to an engagement party. Instead the couple got married right then and there, at Cookhouse in North Beach, a lovely little apartment and event space upstairs from Vesuvio, the legendary beat writer hangout. As you can imagine, this made for some amazing photos. Of course I love the setting — I grew up here in San Francisco and fancied myself a literary kid, so I used to hang out at City Lights in high school, brooding over serious texts — but my favorite shots are actually of Cara arriving at the party decked out in a glorious gown with her bouquet. So much joy. These guys were lots of fun to work with. Their photographer, Bethany Carlson, was kind enough to share her work.
