Rustic and green

Loving the floral and details from this Ojai, California wedding.  So green and natural in such a pretty setting.  Her bouquet looks like something that could have been plucked out of a Tuscan garden.  From Once Wed.

Happy 100th birthday Julia!  If you haven't read her book "My Life in France" yet, you should!  Her joy and enthusiasm for French cooking is evident, even though she arrived in France not speaking a word of the language or knowing much of the culture.   Her advice on how to survive a French dinner party- "Just speak very loudly and quickly, and state your position with utter conviction, as the French do, and you'll have a marvelous time!"
