Courtney and Robert met in college, where both were creative writing majors. Eight years later, he proposed while they were visiting his relatives in Oregon for Thanksgiving. "After dinner, I followed a path down to the greenhouse marked by these paper footprints Robert had cut out," says Courtney. "At the very last footprint, there he was, down on one knee." The two married at A New Leaf Studio and Garden, an urban floral studio with whimsical decor, where orange and gold accents were the setting for the couple's intimate celebration.

Courtney and Robert met in college, where both were creative writing majors. Eight years later, he proposed while they were visiting his relatives in Oregon for Thanksgiving. "After dinner, I followed a path down to the greenhouse marked by these paper footprints Robert had cut out," says Courtney. "At the very last footprint, there he was, down on one knee." The two married at A New Leaf Studio and Garden, an urban floral studio with whimsical decor, where orange and gold accents were the setting for the couple's intimate celebration.

Courtney, an event planner, had worked with A New Leaf Studio before and thought the space would be great for her wedding. The bride masterminded the reception’s look in collaboration with the venue.
