Verde Flowers is an event design company run by married partners Michael Gonzalez and Vanessa Polanco. Since its inception in 2005, their creativity and attention to detail has adorned events throughout the New York Metro area and the Hudson Valley.
Michael has over 20 years of experience in floral design and event décor, and is a highly skilled artist. Prior to Verde Flowers, Michael worked with leading floral design companies in Manhattan, giving him the opportunity to work with an extensive client list and experiment with a variety of approaches.
Vanessa will produce your vision. With her background in musical theater and hospitality she beautifully fulfills her role by balancing art and business. Vanessa respects the value of a budget, a timeline, and the achievement of specific goals.
Based in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx, this cultural mecca is a constant source of creative inspiration and personal source of pride. Watching the area evolve, take shape, and become the best version of itself parallels the growth of Verde's business - the voice, community, humility, and authenticity is always a part of our work.
