This year, we have twelve weddings to attend. Twelve!!! And it’s not like I can say not because it some of my favorite people getting married! Therefore, there will be a smattering of wedding posts in the new few weeks.
One of the more recent weddings we attended was someone I’ve known since 13, a childhood friend, Jessie. She asked me to run her wedding and I obliged so I didn’t capture that many details but I know her lovely photographer, Nick Radford who shot this wedding will have many good ones to share. The wedding was held at the beautiful Orcutt Ranch in southern California. It’s a state park so cost for rental isn’t as high as other venues.
They also asked me to design their invitations. Something clean and art-deco. Jessie really wanted to incorporate rose gold foiling into the invite which we did. Hopefully I’ll have some better shots soon!
The bride DIY-ed some really adorable hot air balloon centerpieces out of paper lanterns, yarn and potted succulents.
Congrats to the lovely couple.
Easter has significant meaning for those of us who are Christians. I have seen many Easter cards but this is one from Wit & Whistle is by far one of my faves. Just had to pick it up for a friend
Loved her description: “I think Jesus is sad each Easter when we put more emphasis on a basket-wielding bunny than on remembering the sacrifice he made for us. So, I decided to skip the expected bunny card in favor of something with a little more meaning. “
I love using Instagram to share photos mostly of what I eat and my kid but I thought it’s about time to start sharing some JolieJolie goodness in the Insta-world so behold: JolieJolieDesign is on Instagram. Hooray! Follow us: http://instagram.com/joliejoliedesign

This afternoon, a few friends and I got together to put some succulents together in the container of our choice! It was so much fun and quite therapeutic! For those who do not have a green thumb, like me, succulents are really a great way to start because they do not need too much care. I must admit, whoever said that it’s hard to kill a succulent, must have not killed one before because I definitely have failed a few times. For the most part, the survival rate of succulents in my care have been 75% so that isn’t so bad!
The containers that were used were a tea cup, a glass bowl from CB2, an awesome bird feeder and eggshells that was inspired from Pinterest!
We had a blast putting these together! Then we went to dinner afterwards at Gochi Fusion Japanese Tapas Restaurant! Go to FOODERIE to check out the yummy pictures from that!
