I was recommended Verde Flowers by my venue, Bryant Park Grill. Vanessa does many of the event flowers there at that venue and was VERY FAMILIAR with the ins and outs of the space and venues and where flowers should and shouldn't go at different times of the year. This was tremendously helpful because I felt that I could rely on her opinion to provide the best flowers and get the most bang for your buck than just delivering alot of flowers everywhere.
I was able to clip lots of examples of flowers and show her what I was thinking and she was able to cohesively put together the personal items as well as cocktail flowers and reception centerpieces. She put it together better than what I could put together in my head! I was so surprised when I saw the arrangements (for the first time) when I was walking down the aisle and was really surprised how it all turned out. The dendrobrium orchids were very romantic and looked stunning as our backdrop. The centerpieces that incorporated our wedding color fuschia really stood out and the floating pedestal candles gave the soft romantic feel that I was looking for.
I was married in November which is a difficult month in terms of flowers. I originally really wanted peonies but as they weren't available, I felt that Vanessa & Michael went above and beyond in getting peony-like dahlias and the "Red Charm" from the market to complete the vision I had. I think they knew that I had my heart set on that look and really tried everything to get us there. I was really happy with the way all the bouquets looked with the messy flower look with larger peony-like flowers that drew the eye in.
Most brides tell me that there is always one thing that is nitpicky that bothered them about their flowers (for instance, a particular flowers was missing, etc) but none of the other guests really notice. However, I can honestly say that there isn't anything that disappointed me about the flowers and I was beyond impressed!

When I went to go see the sample table arrangement that Vanessa and her team put together for me, I cried. It was so stunning and the reason that it was so special was because I had no idea that it would turn out better than I had ever imagined. Originally, I really didn't have a specific idea of what I wanted: I just vaguely told Vanessa about colors and style, and she managed to put together arrangements that were exactly what I truly wanted. She was patient, kind, professional, and most importantly, very prompt about responding. My bouquet and arrangements were absolutely breathtaking, and our guests were fighting over who would get to take them home. Thank you, Verde Flowers, for helping to make our wedding so very beautiful!

Working with Vanessa and Michael was a wonderful experience. They were helpful, creative, and flexible. They added beauty and elegance to our wedding venue. The flowers were absolutely stunning, and Vanessa was right - the candles added sophistication and romance, more so as the evening went on. I would recommend them SO highly to anyone planning a wedding or party.

My flowers were better than I dreamed! Vanessa and Michael were so fabulous to work with and they made me wedding so incredibly beautiful. Everyone raved about our stunning centerpieces and bouquets. They totally understood the vibe and feel we wanted and made our vision come to life--and then some. And they were much more reasonable than anyone else we met (who weren't half as talented or creative as V&M). So thankful we went with them.

Vanessa and Michael made my wedding so extremely beautiful with all of their amazing touches in their floral designs and candles around my venue. From the moment I contact Verde and got a response from Vanessa, I knew I was in professional and caring hands. I met with Vanessa to go over my ideas and she was so incredibly responsive to my ideas and my vision I had. Throughout the planning, Vanessa was so patient in answering all of my questions and making alterations when I wanted them. At my preview of the flowers I was so blown away by the artistry and creativeness of Michael and his team and when I stepped into my venue to see the finished product I was amazed. Every person couldn't stop raving about how beautiful the floral designs were. Thank you so much Vanessa and Michael for making this experience so easy and making my day filled with such beauty!

The arrangements that Verde created for my wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely stunning and worked perfectly with the venue's decor. Vanessa's designs were truly unique and special. Not only did EVERY guest comment on the flowers, the Event Manager at the venue took photos because they were so gorgeous and impactful! The flowers were definitely one of the highlights of the event.

Vanessa was a pleasure to work with - she listened to my vision but had some great suggestions that made a big difference. We planned everything by phone and email because I don't live in NY and everything turned out perfectly. I didn't get to meet Vanessa but her staff was wonderful when they were setting up.

I highly recommend Verde Flowers for any event.

No words can describe the overall feeling when I entered the reception hall and saw how beautiful my centerpieces were! Verde did a FANTASTIC job where they took my vision and ran with it! Way beyond my expectations and definitely will use them in the future. My guests that won the centerpieces were sad that it was too big to fit into their cars but pulled out the flowers to create bouquets to take home with them.

Vanessa was great to work with. I am so happy that my best friend found her for my bridal shower and I was able to work with her for my wedding.

I'm not sure where to begin. I wanted a fairytale Winter Wonderland themed wedding at THe Plaza in New York City, and Verde blew my dreams out of the water! Vanessa and Michael are pure genius artists. What they did for was absolutely STUNNING and BREATHTAKING. Everyone there, including people who have been to some of the most elaborate parties worldwide were blown away.

I have no doubt I will be sending many many many referrals and working with them again in the years to come! People LOVED the decor, the flowers, the EVERYTHING they touched. They took my vision and ran with it- all while keeping UNDER budget and made working with them a true pleasure!

There is no question I will be raving about Verde Custom Flowers for the rest of my life, anyone getting married in New York, meeting with them is a MUST!

Verde was referred to me by my wedding venue. Verde provides them flowers on a weekly basis so they are their preferred florist. When I contacted Vanessa, I told her what my budget was and what colors I was looking to have for the wedding. Because she was already familiar with the venue, she said that this would be a very simple process.
There was not a lot of back and forth since I trusted her. We met once and exchanged a few emails. A few weeks before the wedding, we went to the store to view the flowers they have in season and they gave us a preview of what the center pieces would look like. And they were beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. I was a bit nervous because I didn't get to look at what the ceremony flowers or my bouquet would look like but she told me what to expect. When the day came, my bouquet was beautiful and the ceremony flowers were gorgeous. They were a lot better than I would've expected. I was very impressed and happy with them. It was nice to see the ceremony flowers for the first time while I walked down the aisle. She also did the aisle flowers and they matched the ceremony flowers and it was very cute.
The bouquet lasted a week and they smelled really nice.
My guests were fighting over the center pieces and not one was left behind. Everyone said they were beautiful.

Vanessa was an absolute joy to work with. She was incredibly responsive to questions or concerns that I had as well as great at offering up suggestions. Vanessa was very respectful of what our budget was (not very much :-) ) and helped me figure out ways that we could stay within budget. Initially, we talked through what my vision was, the types of flowers I was thinking, and where the reception was. I met with Vanessa in person to figure out all the pricing and nail down more specifics about the flowers and quantity needed. We set for a month before the wedding for me to come up to see the trial of the center pieces. The trail went really well and with a few tweaks, we had the perfect center pieces.

The night before the wedding, at almost midnight, I realized that I had forgotten to get petals for the flower girls! I emailed Vanessa and woke up the next morning to an email reassuring me that she put flowers in the delivery for me and not to worry!

Vanessa went above and beyond to really take care of us and delivered a beautiful package. The flowers were exactly what we were hoping for. I would highly recommend Vanessa as your florist for your wedding.

All of our guests immediately commented on how exquisitely beautiful the decor and flowers were when they entered the wedding venue. Not knowing much about flowers, Vanessa provided us with many options until we found what we were looking for. The table centerpieces as well as the floral sculptures throughout the space were a work of art. In addition to the beautiful flower design, Vanessa and team provided a candle package with over two hundred votive candles throughout the event space; candles on all of the tables placed in candle holders of different sizes; candles suspended from the ceiling in cone shaped candle holders. Verde Florists well exceeded our expectations. It also important to comment how accomodating and kind Vanessa and the rest of the Verde team were to us. We will recommend Verde Florists to family and friends.

AMAZING. Our florist canceled three weeks prior to our wedding, and our planner helpfully suggested Verde as a replacement and I'm so glad she did. Our arrangements were beautiful. My bouquet was gorgeous. The altar arrangements were absolutely nothing like what I'd been planning on, but pussywillow was out of season and they improvised and came up with a masterpiece. Highly recommend.

Verde Custom Flowers and Vanessa were terrific to work with. She definitely listened to me and my husband, and was able to create exactly what we wanted. Michael, the floral designer is an amazing artist, and they gave us a really wide selection of flowers to choose from.

There were two circumstances that really made Verde and the team stand out and compels me to recommend them. First, my fiance and I were on a budget for the wedding, particularly since we were holding it in Manhattan and Vanessa worked with me to make sure we could get beautiful flowers and floral arrangements while staying within our budget. She didn't try to force more expensive flowers on us and actually went back to the proposal when the first one was higher than I had budgeted. I genuinely appreciated that.

Second, we had gone with another vendor to build our chuppah since we were looking for a customized one (it was made out of green bamboo) and found a vendor who could do it at a better rate. On the day of the wedding, we saw it and were a disappointed with it. Even though Verde wasn't responsible for it, Vanessa heard we were upset and distressed about how it looked and immediately sent Michael to our location and he dressed it so it looked absolutely beautiful and elegant.

It is this level of professionalism and going above and beyond that my husband and I so appreciate and we will always recommend Verde to all engaged couples, as well as event planners or anybody planning something that needs flowers.

Neither my husband nor I know much about flowers. With our wedding colors being Aqua and Gray we really had no idea what color flowers would work best. Vanessa listened to our ideas and created a beautiful color scheme to compliment our wedding.

Our centerpieces were so amazing and she really helped to create the eclectic feel that we wanted. Friends that are sending us pictures from the wedding all include at least one photo of the centerpieces because they loved them so much.

The bouquets were so simple and beautiful!

According to our venue, Michael came in and set up in record time and without needing any help! Incredible work AND professionalism! How could I not recommend Verde Custom Flowers!?!

I cannot say enough about how amazing Vanessa and the Verde team were. Verde was recommended to me by my day of coordinator, Anna Leath, at Just About Married. I hired Verde to do every aspect of my wedding's decor at the Bowery Hotel. I still think about the extraordinary beauty of the florals and other details of design - candles, linens, etc. - that Vanessa envisioned and then seamlessly executed. One of the reasons I picked Vanessa was that she seemed interested in making the whole wedding look beautiful and she didn't see herself as exclusively a floral designer (though she is a totally amazing floral designer too!).

A couple things that will stick in my mind whenever I remember my wedding. We did not have room for a traditional chuppah, but we wanted something that would be an obvious gesture to a chuppah. The beauty of the "chuppah" arrangement that Vanessa designed is honestly hard to put into words. I was about to get married and I remember thinking, "Wow, that's stunning!" Then, Vanessa used elements of the chuppah to serve as end-pieces to two long tables, which was unbelievably dramatic, elegant, and (who could guess?) cost-effective. Vanessa's incredible skill is in making relatively affordable choices look magnificent. I shopped around a great deal before choosing Vanessa and my impression was that florists seemed almost to enjoy saying how expensive they were. Not Vanessa. Vanessa is a serious, no-nonsense professional with some whopping talents that she is not about to flaunt.

If you want your wedding to look better than anything you could possibly imagine, choose Vanessa and Verde, and don't look back.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Vanessa and the Verde team were. Verde was recommended to me by my day of coordinator, Anna Leath, at Just About Married. I hired Verde to do every aspect of my wedding's decor at the Bowery Hotel. I still think about the extraordinary beauty of the florals and other details of design - candles, linens, etc. - that Vanessa envisioned and then seamlessly executed.

Verde was absolutely wonderful!! Vanessa met me for a personal consultation and was very thorough in explaining my low-budget options. When the bouquets and boutonnieres showed up at the hotel I was flabbergasted at their beauty! They were everything I had imagined, with no problems and reasonable prices. Choose Verde!

I don’t know much about flowers, so I left a lot of the decisions to Vanessa. I basically told her I wanted everything yellow and nothing round (meaning nothing pulled tight and rounded at the top). Everything was so beyond stunning. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I got so many compliments on the flowers, and many of the guests took home their centerpieces. My bouquet was simple yellow calla lilies, but I loved it SO much.
I can’t say enough about Vanessa and Verde. If you are having a wedding in or around the Bronx, there’s really no better place to go.

Loved, loved, loved my flowers! When I met with Vanessa at Verde's cool and modern studio, she listened to me carefully and helped me narrow down my preferences and ideas in order to create something special and beautiful and completely appropriate for my venue. She and her husband, Michael, arranged a great preview for me and my husband, offering me a carefully chosen selection of the types of flowers/colors I wanted. We left the preview feeling confident and really, really excited that our wedding was going to be beautiful—and we were right. The arrangements for the tables were great--sophisticated yet simple--but nothing was more beautiful than my bouquet. Michael completely got what I wanted--bright and clean, not too symmetrical. He delivered completely. Also important: they worked within our budget and stayed in touch throughout the planning.

Vanessa provided me with my personal flowers, some large pieces, and single roses (I did my own centerpieces) for my wedding day. The bouquets were absolutely stunning. My bouquet was simple, neutral, fresh and gorgeous just like I requested and the bridesmaids bouquets were vibrant and looked great with their dresses. The large pieces were very unique and stylish. Vanessa was a pleasure to work with. She guided me through the process and was always very helpful, responsive, and professional.

During the "buying" part of the process, when asked what color I wanted the boutennieres i did not specify a color, but rather said that it MUST MATCH the bride's bouquet. The contract even said, "to compliment flowers for bridal party" but then the florist added "-hot pink" with her own specification. I also didn't care what style of flower, just that they match the stunning and expensive bride's bouquet of hot pink orchids. On the wedding day, the hot pink orchids looked more like purple, and the boutennieres looked more like red. RED & PURPLE DO NOT MATCH! They looked UGLY together. The florist argued that she "ordered" hot pink roses for the men, and hot pink orchids for the bouquet. I don't know why no one there "noticed" they they did not match when they received the order, but the whole thing looked ugly, and really upset me, and now I have it in my wedding photos forever. I still haven't looked at the video. I hate to look at it. It was very upsetting, and ruins my memory of the great time and awesome wedding we had otherwise. Too bad my photos that should remind me of the great day only show me how stupid, unattentive, no-attention to detail, only interested in "right-fighting" her side that she "ordered" hot pink from her vendor but they didn't match. I mean, i never specified a color nor a type of flower for the men, just that they match. and they didn't. And they were not willing to admit any fault. They offered to send us a free bouquet of flowers to make up for it, but I didn't need flowers, I needed restitution. I was so mad, and still am. If you hire them -- they do do nice work and have good quality flowers -- WATCH them carefully. Get photos of everything they plan to do (they also did a hideous railing treatment that looked like seaweed dangling from hand-rails, and was gross -- not what we envisioned when we talked about having something "draping" the railings, not seaweed dangling from them -- ugh!). Buyer beware -- know exactly what they're going to do in advance. don't just assume your vendors will do what you want because you want to believe that they will . you can't go back and change the photos. make sure you or someone goes up to their place in the bronx and inspects the flowers before they deliver, and early enough that if something is wrong that you can fix it. Make a friend in charge of this. That's what I wish I had done. Flowers was the only "crap shot" -- the DJ was awesome, the food was awesome, etc. Just the flowers that was a big surprise and ruined what was otherwise the perfect even I planned and pulled off. And their excuse that they ordered "hot pink" and that there is variation in the flowers was not an excuse. They blamed someone else, instead of paying attention to what the customer wanted which was matching flowers -- we were not attached to any type or color boutennieres, just that they matched. It was they that specified roses. Ugh. Disgusting. That is not my idea of customer service. They wrote up a piece of paper and then stuck by the paper. I hired THEM, not a piece of paper. THEY let me down. Unforgivable when you are doing flowers for a wedding.

Verde was great I am so thrilled I chose them as our florist. Vanessa was patient even though I changed my mind about what I wanted about 4 times. She also helped guide me and ordered linens and chairs and helped me create the overall look and feel of the wedding. Both our ceremony and reception were gorgeous. People kept commenting that our flowers looked like that of a chic celebrity celebration not a typical wedding centerpiece. The bouquets and chuppah also came out way beyond my expectations. If you want exceptional, cutting edge style - Verde is your vendor!

Working with Verde was nothing but a pleasure.
I was working on a relatively small budget for my wedding and I had few solid ideas about what I really wanted. Vanessa helped me work through ideas, and possibilities, all the while sharing suggestions and helping me envision my wedding. I never felt as if I were talking to a vendor who was busy with other jobs. Verde's acute listening skills and sincere interest in my wedding was a true source of confidence and stability in what can feel like a confusing time full of decision making.

Verde's hands-on process allowed me to physically see and handle the flowers and arrangments that would at our wedding which truly helped me verbalize and organize what I liked and what I didn't.

The church and the reception look phenomenal and I received more compliments than I can count. It has been 3 months since our wedding and guests are still mentioning my gorgeous flowers. I can honestly say that my experience with Verde Custom Flowers was likely the most personal and personalized interaction I had throughout my wedding planning process.
I wish Verde the best of luck.
Amy, New York

My experience with Verde was perfect from start to finish. They are kind, professional and extremely talented. The flowers at my wedding were stunning. Literally everywhere I looked, the floral design exceeded my expectations. Verde will not just put a centerpiece down on the table and call it a day. Every floral arrangement is unique and every detail on the tables, in the bathrooms, during the ceremony, etc. is taken care of. I cannot recommend Verde more highly! I would do it all over again.

We just got married at the Harvard Club of NY, and used Verde Flowers for our event. We could not be more pleased with this choice. Vanessa and Michael are consummate professionals, and decorated the entire venue beautifully. They listened to what we wanted, understood the aesthetic we were going for perfectly, and were able to deliver within our pre-determined budget. Their knowledge of flowers, combined with their artistic acumen, resulted in spectacular centerpieces (both tall and low) for the cocktail hour and reception, in addition to the most stunning chuppah (more beautiful than I could have imagined while we were designing it together). Additionally, their insights into the overall feel of the space, specifically how to arrange the numerous candles and their suggestion to use a white fabric stage covering, helped transform our venue into our little slice of heaven for the night. We even got a nice little surprise - an upgraded flower for our chuppah which gave it that perfect look. We highly, HIGHLY, recommend Verde Flowers for any event.

Verde Custom Flowers was highly recommended to me from a friend who was also planning her wedding. I had an extremely positive experience working with Vanessa. She was very knowledgeable about my venue and what would work best for decoration. In addition, Vanessa was extremely flexible and helped me at the last minute find rental linens when my caterer failed to do so. On the day of my wedding I was more than thrilled with the arrangements that Verde had created and would highly recommend Verde to anyone who wants a professional, reliable, and talented vendor.
