It was an impressive proposal, even for the likes of Jeff Leatham, who serves as artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, designing floral arrangements for the 5-star hotel.

His work with floral arrangements is so impressive it earned him a “knighthood” as a “Chevalier de L’Ordre des Arts et Lettres” in 2014. The Chevalier de L’Ordre des Arts et Lettres is the French government’s highest honor for “eminent artists and writers, as well as people who have contributed significantly to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world.”

“Jeff’s work is a combination of his love for flowers and his passion for design,” reads a page dedicated Leatham on the Four Seasons Hotel George V website. “His creations are bold statements, using shape, color and simplicity to produce a dramatic effect. Breathtaking and unforgettable, Jeff’s flowers and design essentials are always integral to the setting, never merely a backdrop.”

Leatham has published two books dedicated to his floral designs, Flowers by Jeff Leatham and Flowers by Design.

Colton Haynes has starred in numerous movies and hit TV shows. He’s had major roles in series like The Gates, Look, Teen Wolf, and Green Arrow, and appeared in the films San Andreas and the upcoming Triumph and Rough Night.

News that Colton Haynes had gotten engaged may come as somewhat of a surprise to his fans. He confirmed that he was in a relationship with Leatham just last month.

“Haynes first teased the relationship on Valentine’s Day last week, sharing a picture of the two from behind, embracing at sunset with red roses arranged in a heart shape on the ground around them,” People reported at the time.

The most special day of my life. Thank you @jeffleatham. We were actually in the clouds…speechless. Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. #LoveWins ❤️❤️❤️ Never be afraid to love harder.

A few days later, Haynes posted a picture of him and Leatham lying in bed together.

“It’s not every day that someone comes into your life & makes you want to be a better man,” Haynes wrote in the caption accompanying the image. “I feel so blessed to be by your side @jeffleatham #WhatMoviesAreMadeOf.”
